11 ways to personalize your jewelry like a celebrity

By Stephanie Gray

When it comes to making your bling matter, follow in the footsteps of fashion-forward celebrities with a personalized piece that’s imprinted with the date of a magical moment, a loved one’s name or even a specific location . A cherished accessory of A-listers and royalty alike, it may seem cryptic to onlookers but lets you keep that special memory near and dear.

Trendy moms in Tinseltown are especially fond of one-of-a-kind trinkets. Reese Witherspoon, Beyoncé and Hilary Duff have all been spotted wearing precious baubles ranging from engraved charms to name rings and necklaces stamped with a single letter.

Even the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, snagged her own namesake necklace by Merci Maman after the arrival of Prince George. The Duchess’s pendant features a small gold-plated circle etched with George Alexander Louis, a heart with the initial W (for Prince William, naturally) and a little boy charm.

For famous mothers who are often off shooting a movie, headlining a tour or promoting their latest project around the globe, the trend is a seriously sweet way to keep their little ones close by .

And it’s not just moms sporting personalized keepsakes. Hollywood couples have been known to show their love with the help of an exclusive creation. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have worn matching rings emblazoned with one another’s names to show their commitment, while Kim Kardashian has displayed her love for husband Kanye West with initial earrings.

Marking a momentous date, like a wedding, engagement, graduation or birthday , is another favourite of stars longing to individualize their adornments. From a bracelet marked with numbers to a mini calendar charm with the actual date marked in, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr and Emma Roberts have all worn delicate date hardware as reminders of a memorable milestone.

Another cute customization idea favoured by the stars is location coordinates, which is a way to mark the exact location that’s tied to an eventful place . It could be a honeymoon, hometown or the spot where your partner proposed. It’s a little less obvious to onlookers, but allows you to keep that significant place close to your heart.

From initials to location coordinates, there are more than a few unique ways to go bespoke with your accessories. Click through our gallery to mark your memories like a celebrity.
