Splurge or Save: Monogram Bracelet

Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 9.10.47 PM

We love our initials, but it can be hard to pull off a monogram. It usually feels either too preppy or, dare we say it, egotistical. But on our favorite accessory, jewelry, they are a great way to share a family name or a loved one.

The most common initial jewelry are rings, which can be worn by men and women, but we’re partial to these light but still significant bangles. The gold-plate or sterling silver ones are practically a perfect match for the more expensive 14k gold piece, and at half the price, a great way to personalize your everyday jewelry without breaking the bank.

Two of these are a pretty way to wear your favorite letters or gift to a good friend.
