Though not a new accessory (think back to the Y2K era), personalized name pendant necklaces are slowly making a comeback in the bridal space and we're absolutely here for it! These necklaces, which can feature the words "fiancé", "wifey", or "Mrs", are a way for those who just got engaged and newly wedded brides to show off their new relationship status to the world. They're also a fun and trendy way to customize a bridal look if you choose to wear one down the aisle.
In the past few years, celebrities like Hailey Bieber have worn this wedding-inspired necklace as a cute nod to their nuptials. Specifically, Justin Bieber gifted Hailey a personalized diamond pendant necklace that read "wifey", following their second wedding celebration. She has also been photographed wearing a separate diamond-encrusted pendant necklace that says "Bieber".
Most recently, Jennifer Lopez (now Mrs. Affleck) revealed her newest "Mrs" necklace in an Instagram post. In the photo, she's wearing black silk pajamas by Intimissimi lingerie, which is accessorized with her new sparkly necklace. JLo has always been known to spark a few bridal fashion trends (think back to the surge of green engagement rings following her engagement), so we're confident that many brides will be sporting this look in the upcoming months.
Ultimately, what's great about personalized bridal necklaces is that there are no rules when it comes to what you'd like them to say. They can be customized to read anything from "wifey" to "Mrs" and even your new last name. There are also so many retailers that offer a wide variety of styles and design options for this accessory. For example, Catbird, Oak and Luna, and Myka are only but a few brands that provide a selection of custom pieces, in an array of styles like cursive and block lettering. Etsy is also a great place to shop for handwritten pendants for a more personalized touch.
These pieces come in gold, silver, white gold, platinum, and diamond encrusted to suit your own preferences, so trust us, the options are limitless. What we love the most, though, is that this accessory isn't only reserved for the bride. They are great for grooms who love jewelry and even work as gifts for the bridal party.
Jewelry has always played a major role in a couple's love story, from earrings to tennis bracelets and engagement rings. They're an age-old gift that many use to show their love and appreciation, and the personalization factor of this trend will only elevate the importance of the love you have for your partner. Don't just say "I love you" with an ordinary necklace, but highlight what makes your love story unique with a customized piece that can be worn forever.
