Obsession: Monogram JewelryPosted: August 4, 2012
I am having a “monogram moment” right now. It must be my inner prep. There is something so distinguished and old school about owing a classic design with your monogram. I absolutely love our new monogrammed items. Of course, I had to engrave MY monogram so that clients could see it. Score! Dustin and I designed these together because we share a life-long love for the signet ring. The signet ring is a jewelry wardrobe essential. I believe it is something to passed down to future generations. It will never go out of style. We put a twist on the classic sign design with an oxidized frame and gave it a more substantial weight. After the ring is engraved we slightly oxidize the monogram which pops on the shiny silver face. The darker letters also coordinate with the black frame. This is a small touch that makes a big design impact. The hitchcock Madrona signet ring is available in sizes 6 through 11 to accommodate men and women.
Our sterling silver shield necklace is inspired by a medal that I bought in India from 1910. It is an old military medal from the Indian Army. I have worn it on a silver chain for about three years and people are constantly trying to buy it off my neck. We decided to create this necklace to be personalized – therefore it looks military but also heirloom. I love the weight of the pendant and chain (our signature hitchcock Madrona silver chain).
My signet ring is engraved with my monogram (not initials) ESK. I chose a feminine, Victorian-looking script to balance the weight and masculinity of the ring and shield. My monogram choice is interlocking, which means all of the letters overlap or interlock in someway. I love monograms that are almost illegible.
In contrast to mine, Dustin chose to use his initials DTN in a more masculine font.
We have stock of our blank signet rings and shield necklaces ready for your personal touch. We are happy to offer complimentary engraving. This would be such an amazing gift!
