Trend Alert: Monogram Pendant

I have been loving the unique monogram look that has been becoming popular lately. Tons of celebrities from Jennifer aniston to Taylor swift to LC and even Alexis from RHOOC have been seen sporting monograms of their own.
In particular, my favorite way to interpret this trend is the monogram pendant. This trend includes a large pendant that is attached to a chain. The pendant is detailed with your initials ornately carved.
Upon looking for a company to create this unique and personalized pendant for me, I found a plethora; however, they looked made by an engraving machine and I wanted something a bit more ornate and authentic. This led me to find Elygoldart, a craftsman on Etsy- he is an incredibly talented metalsmith who customizes in creating ornately designed monograms. This is my first ever purchase from Etsy, but after reading all of this particular seller's amazing reviews and seeing some photos of his beautiful work, I knew that this is where I had to buy my monogram pendant.

I received my first proof the evening that I purchased my pendant- Ely handdraws each and every proof! My initials are AMM, but I decided to have my monogram made with my first initial, A, in the middle, surrounded by the two M's which I thought would make it more symmetrical.
I ordered a 1 1/2" silver monogram pendant from Ely with an 18" rope chain. The pendant is solid silver and is 1 1/3 cm thick (so won't be flimsy or bend at all). Ely was so easy to work with and his work has impressed me very much, I may be going back to him again in the future for gifts for friends and family. I am so thrilled with my pendant!
Please let Ely know that Annie sent you to his Etsy store if you end up ordering anything from him. I promise you won't be disappointed- this is a piece of jewelry that you will cherish forever, as it was personally made especially for you!

    I have many new styled jewelry pendants which I can not post on ETSY. It is VERY DIFFICULT to sell my custom made jewelry on ETSY.
