Frequently Asked Questions
What do you write on a personalised necklace?
Whether engraving a single word, a short quote, or a simple date and time… What you decide to write on your necklace is up to you.
Some like to give their loved one a personalised name necklace, inscribed with their first name or initials. Others like to engrave a significant date to mark an important milestone, like an anniversary or birth of a child.
A quote or a word that means a lot to you – like ‘love,’ ‘strength’ or ‘hope’ – can be a beautiful reminder treasured for a lifetime. Looking for something unique with a touch of sentimentality? Personalised necklaces for mum can be a great way to express just how much she means to you.
Engraving a time or even coordinates can not only feel bespoke, but special, something only you and your loved one will understand.
The number of words you can have engraved will be determined by the size of the engravable area, as well as the type of necklace you choose. Be sure to check character limits by referring to the piece’s product information online.
What styles of necklaces can be engraved?
Many styles of necklaces are able to be engraved—bar, locket, square pendants and more.
Personalised necklaces with an engravable bar are popular for first names, meaningful phrases and special dates, so you can make it feel completely your own. A round or beaded disc pendant can provide enough space for a set of initials, while a heart-shaped pendant can be inscribed with a romantic word, depending on its size. A personalised gold necklace can feel especially timeless, thanks to its brilliant shine.
A personalised pendant necklace can also come in the form of square pendants and oval-shaped pendants, which not only look sleek and minimal, but allow more space for your message.
Lockets, meanwhile, are particularly sentimental. These can also be good for inscribing heartfelt messages to symbolise a deep and unwavering love, whether it be for a parent, a partner, or a friend.
How can you personalise a necklace?
You can personalise a necklace for yourself or a loved one in a number of different ways.
Personalised name necklaces can be a great way to express yourself, to add sentimental value to a gift and to show others how much you love them. Usually this includes engraving, but this isn’t the only way to personalise a necklace.
Put a photo of your partner, your children or your parents inside a locket to capture those precious memories and keep them close to your heart. Include a gem in a loved one’s favourite colour or birthstone to make a necklace feel more personal.
You can even personalise your necklace with a meaningful symbol, like an initial pendant, a zodiac sign or a certain motif like a Lotus Flower, either in plain silver or gold, or studded with eye-catching diamonds.
As long as it comes from the heart, your personalised necklace will feel special.
