A-Z Jewellery: The Most Beautiful Initial Necklaces, Bracelets & Rings To Wear Now

The perfect personalised gift

For many of us, our initials are a unique way of self-identification. We press them into seals, scribble them in signatures and carve them into trees as a declaration of who we are, where we’ve been and who we love – and the sentiment is no different when it comes to interweaving letters in our jewellery. ‘I have always been fascinated by how objects can tell a story,’ says Sophie Bille Brahe, Founder and Creative Director of her eponymous jewellery brand. ‘They remind us of people who were here, who they were – a proof that they belonged to the world. That is what I wish for my jewellery too. I want to find a personal way to express an eternal feeling of love.’ Let someone know you’re thinking of them, or make your own mark on the world, with these beautiful initial jewellery pieces.
