I am slightly obsessed with monograms on vintage items. Handbags, sweaters, jewelry- you name it. Even if it's not my monogram, I want to buy it and wear it and wonder what was the name of the person bearing those initials.
I have a few monogram pieces of my own, which are some of my most treasured things. My great grandma's gold monogram brooch, a gift from my great grandpa. Her name was Alma Florence Leaver.
Two lucite "B" brooches. I love these because they are clear, I can wear them with anything. Since they are my absolute favorite brooch, I bought two in case tragedy struck one of them, I'd have a back up.
I have been in search of something vintage with my monogram on it for years. Wouldn't that be amazing- a lady who lived during the 40s or 50s with my exact initials and I happened to find her jewelry? I've rummaged through antique malls and online but so far, no luck so I was very excited to hear from Onecklace, specializing in name and initial necklaces.
I chose a small circle monogram necklace in silver with a dainty, short chain. It arrived in a beautiful and sturdy little gift box and is just as timelessly elegant as it can be! They had different sizes available but I love the small circle- a bit larger than a quarter and it's something I can wear with anything. For 1930s lovers out there, they also have some beautiful jewelry with bold deco style lettering.
