5 Important Monogram Questions Answered

What is a Monogram?

A monogram is usually any combination of two or more overlapping letters, used to create a particular motif. They are perpetually popular for personal use, with most people choosing to use their name or initials as a monogram. Monograms have unique historical significance, going back to the 4th century B.C.E. when Greek city-states emblazoned their initials on coins. These days, monograms are applied to an unlimited number of objects including monogram necklaces, monogram keychains and monogram jewelry boxes.

What Items Can Be Monogrammed?

The kinds of items to which you can apply a monogram are generally only limited to the designer's imagination. Jewelry is one of the most popular monogrammed items. Almost any piece of jewelry looks great with a monogram, such as monogram necklace, bracelets, rings, and earrings. Whether it's inexpensive costume jewelry or made out of 14k Gold, monograms can turn any piece of jewelry into a personalized heirloom. In addition to jewelry, Eve's Addiction offers a variety of unique monogrammed gifts including picture frames, mugs, water bottles, and more.

What is the Correct Order of a Monogram?

The short answer is: there is no single correct order! However, there are certain, generally agreed-upon ways to employ initials in a monogram that you may want to follow. The most common form of a traditional, three-letter monogram finds the individual's last name as the large letter in the center. On either side of this are the other two letter set smaller, typically the first initial on the left and the middle initial on the right. There are many acceptable monogram variations, though, even using a single letter. Seeing as how a monogram is an expression of your personal style, you should employ a form that has meaning for you!

When personalizing a monogrammed jewelry or gift item on Eve's Addiction, please write the initials in the order you would like them to appear on the monogrammed piece.
