Merry Christmas from MyNameNecklace!

Merry Christmas from MyNameNecklace!

We are wishing you are your family a very Merry Christmas!

Be sure to stop by our site after opening gifts and spending time with your family to check out what's coming, including some very special gifts for a holiday filled with love! (Oh you know the one we are talking about!)

Important Update Regarding Christmas Shipping

We realize that a few customers have been experiencing some shipping issues with their orders. We are doing our best to sort out the packages and have them delivered by USPS to you in time for Christmas.

It's important to keep in mind that the USPS is very overworked during this period (Look at the Facebook comments that they received on one of their Facebook photos to understand), and sometimes mistakes that they make on their end are out of our hands, and beyond our control. Sometimes they forget to either scan a package (which is why it doesn't show up on the tracking page), have issues with the locations scanned, and sometimes they plain forget the package.

Despite the heavy volume of emails we are working closely with each and every customer to best ensure that they receive their orders in time for the Holidays. We are also working with UPS to deliver some of the packages at literally the last second before Christmas, so be on the lookout as well.

We wish everyone a Happy Holiday season!

Love,

The My Name Necklace Family

Beyonce's New Album and Why We're So Excited!

Beyonce's New Album is Amazing!

Just after midnight on December 13th, the internet was shocked to hear that Beyoncé has a brand new album being offered exclusively on iTunes

Our first reaction was this:
Ryan Gosling Reacting to new beyonce Album

And then we were like:
What. Just. Happened? New Beyonce Album!

The album, simply called “Beyoncé” is her fifth studio album. It has already been deemed a "Visual" album, as highly produced music videos have been created for every track, and are also available for purchase on iTunes. Thanks to Complex we've chosen our 5 most favorite GIF's compiled from the new videos:

1. The perfect wind and scarf combination on "Ghost"

2. Emotional Beyoncé on "Heaven"

3. The James Bond Girl look on "Partition"

4. Invisible jump-roping in "Flawless"

5. And finally some family love while hanging out with her daughter in "Blue"
some family love while hanging out with her daughter in "Blue"

Better yet on her Instagram you can find a 15 second mash-up of all the clips rolled into one! Check it out here.

We've already discussed Beyoncé and her love of personalized jewelry many times, featuring her wearing a block monogram necklace, her daughter Blue Ivy on her name necklace, and famously her support of President Obama by wearing hoop earrings bearing his name

After you buy the full album, and check out some of the videos, head on over to MyNameNecklace and get the same jewelry that fit for a Queen like Beyoncé! We recommend our XXL Large Block Monogram Necklace for those of you that like "Queen Bey" really want to make a statement!

Birthstone of the Month - December

Welcome to December! If you haven’t dusted off your winter coats yet, now is the perfect time to do so. The weather is getting colder and mugs of hot cocoa are looking more and more inviting by the minute. The snow is falling and we are all gearing up to spend the holiday season with family, friends, and loved ones. If you have a birthday during December, consider yourself very lucky. Not only do you have your birthday and Christmas to look forward to, but you have one of the most beautiful birth stones around – the Blue Topaz!

While there are actually a number of birthstones associated with the month of December, none are more popular than the blue topaz. (The other two being tanzanite and turquoise.) What makes this topaz stand out from all the others is its vibrant blue color. The topaz is originally a clear stone, but when it is heated (either artificially or naturally), it turns into a beautiful shade of blue. And the deeper the blue color, the more valuable this gemstone is!

The cool blue color is symbolic of a cool, crisp December sky, hence why it makes for the perfect birthstone option. The ancient Greeks believed that the cooling effect this gemstone had could calm the temper of any wearer as well as balance their mental state. Many also believed that the blue topaz could be dropped in a pot of boiling water and instantly cool it. For these reasons, and many others, this gemstone is seen as a symbol of tranquility and peace – it has the ability to calm even the most boiling of tempers. This gemstone is also said to improve focus and concentration, and when placed by a person’s side as they sleep, it has the power to protect the person from nightmares. Today, the blue topaz represents loyalty faithfulness, and love, making it a perfect gift for a significant other.

Famous celebrities who have birthdays in December include Britney Spears, Amanda Seyfried, Ashley Benson, and Alyssa Milano. Which celebrity do you share a December birthday with?

There are many important dates in December, of course aside from Christmas! There is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day (who wouldn’t LOVE that!), National Pastry Day, Bake Cookies Day, and National Brownie Day. (Do you see a pattern emerging?!) There’s also Put on Your Own Shoes Day, Bathtub Party Day, and Look for an Evergreen Day, but quite honestly, you lost me after Ice Cream Day!


Happy Holidays!!

Hunger Games Mania!

It's all about the Hunger Games! Get a Katniss arrow necklace
Unless you have been living under a rock these past few weeks you have heard a lot about the Hunger Games latest installment: Catching Fire. The Hunger Games is a best-selling novel series by author Suzanne Collins. The trilogy of books was turned into a big box office film hit in 2012 with the first of the three films. Catching Fire opened to an almost record breaking first weekend this weekend, as so many were eager to watch the highly anticipated second film.
 Katniss, the main character played by the Oscar winning Jennifer Lawrence, continues to show off her amazing skills with her arrow, the skill that helped save her life, in the previous film. Get a personalized arrow necklace to show your love for the strong female character Katniss!

Many critics say the second film is a huge step up from the previous film, and praise the new director, Francis Lawrence for his work. Francis Lawrence will also be directing the final installment of the Hunger games series, Mockingjay, which will be split into two films. Mockingjay is currently being filmed and will be out in November 2014. We can't wait for it!

Jennifer Lawrence has been making the rounds at countless premiere and press calls around the world promoting "Catching Fire". During the her press tour she cut off long blonde locks for a stylish pixie cut, a cut that has been heavily talked about all over the fashion world. Jennifer seems to have fun with it as she has been styling in lots of different ways over the course of the press tour. Jennifer has also been experimenting with different styles of clothing, heavily in Dior as she is the brand ambassador for them.

Here are some of my favorite looks from the past few weeks:

8 Things You Always Wanted to Know about Monograms

Everything you ever wanted to know about monograms but did not think to ask by the Monogram Experts at MyNameNecklace.com!


Sterling Silver XXL Statement Monogram NecklaceHistory of Monograms

Monograms have been around for centuries. Ancient Roman and Greek rulers put monograms on coins to mark their territory. In the Middle Ages, artists used monograms to sign their artwork. It is in the Victorian Era where monograms were used for decorative purposes aside from showing one’s place in society. Today, we see monograms on some of the largest fashion houses, like Louis Vuitton and Channel. As well, top celebrities are wearing monograms.

The Popularity of Monograms

Over the last few years, we have definitely seen a rise in the monogram trend. From towels and suitcases, to jackets, ties, silverware, and even notebooks and smartphone cases, monograms can be found everywhere! So of course we had to jump on the monogrammed bandwagon and start providing beautiful monogrammed jewelry. To date, our monogram accessories happen to some of our most widely sold items. Monograms make the perfect gift for yourself or someone you know for their birthday, Christmas, or just a “Hey, I’ve been thinking about you and wanted to get you this” gift.

The Proper Way to Write Your Monogram

One of the biggest questions we get is how to write a monogram. There is a proper monogram etiquette that you should follow but it isn’t mandatory. The initials order goes like this: first name initial – last name initial – middle name initial. If, for example, your name is Michelle Laura Popper, while your initials are MLP, your monogram would actually look like MPL. 

Celebrity Monogram Necklace in Sterling SilverWhat Style Monogram to Choose

With so many monograms to choose from, it can be hard to keep track of them all! First and foremost, we offer our original monogram design in both silver and gold! If you are looking for a big statement piece, check out our XXL in silver, gold, rose gold, and block print. Our new Celebrity Monogram Necklace is also catching a lot of eyes lately. And of course, we have a huge variety of acrylic monograms in a selection of available colors.  And we also have different shapes, including hearts, hamsas, and keys.

Necklaces, Bracelets, and Rings, Oh My!

When it comes to a comprehensive monogram collection, we have them all, including monogram necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings. Can’t decide if you want a bracelet and necklace, or a necklace and a ring? Well, if you can’t decide then get both! We offer a wide selection of mix and mat sets, including necklace and bracelet sets, necklace and ring sets, and necklace and earring sets!

How to Care for your Monogram Jewelry

To ensure your monogram jewelry lasts for a long, long time, it is important to follow proper jewelry care instructions. This includes washing your monogram pendants with the right solutions and storing them properly when you aren’t wearing them. Here is an important tip – do not shower or go swimming with your monogram jewelry as it can cause these jewelry pieces to tarnish and lose their shine.

Alternative Uses for Monograms

Monograms are used to shout “This is Me!” They are great as conversations starters and add an air of mystery and intrigue anytime you wear one. Everyone has to know what your monogram means! But monograms don’t necessarily need to be all about names. Today many people are using monograms to express themselves in other ways, such as three letter words like BOO and AHA, or as an abbreviation for a popular three word phrase, like BRB, LOL, and even WTF. No matter what you put on your monogram, make sure it expresses you and who you are!

Colorful Acrylic Block Monogram NecklacePreview Your Monogram Before you Buy It

Want to know what your monogram will look like before you decide to make a purchase? No problem, we offer you the opportunity to preview your monogram first! All you have to do is choose the monogram option and then the material type. Then put your initials in and click “preview!”

What would your monogram look like? Leave us a comment here or tag us at @MyNameNecklace!

MNN Tip #4

Can I add more than one crystal to your selection of Swarovski Crystal Name Necklaces? Where do the crystal get placed on the name necklace?



Our Swarovski Name Necklaces tend be some of our most popular options! Not only do you get the chance to personalize the name or inscription you want, but you can also add a little big of color and pizzazz, elevating a simple name necklace to something extraordinary.

Each Swarovski Crystal Name Necklace comes with one stone of your choice. You are able to add additional stones but please note that not only is there an added fee for additional crystals, it also really depends on if there is a place to include another crystal. Especially for shorter names, this can be a very difficult task to complete. We recommend customers sticking with the one crystal.

Engraved Four Leaf Clover NecklaceSilver Middle Heart Swarovski Crystal Name Necklace













When it comes to where the crystal is placed, our designers have a few options up their sleeves. For example, if the name has an "i," the crystal will be placed in the dot. It can also be placed at the end of the name in the curl. Our designers pick the very best location to put the crystal so it looks the best!

Engraved Infinity Heart Necklace with Swarovski

Benefits of Shopping Early for Christmas

There are many mistakes we can make while Christmas shopping – buying the wrong size, getting something in the wrong color, or completely missing out on what a person likes and dislikes. But quite possibly one of the biggest mistakes someone can make is leaving Christmas shopping until the last possible minute. This is one of the worst things a person can do. You want to relax on the holiday and rushing around trying to find all your gifts at the last minute is definitely not part of the holiday spirit. Why should you shop early? Well, let’s go over the basics!

It's Time to Shop for Christmas at MyNameNecklaceOut of Stock. Those are the three worst words you can hear around holiday shopping time. But the truth is, the longer you wait, the more likely it is going to be what you are looking for is no longer available.

Will Not Receive in Time. If you are a lover of online shopping (and who isn’t!), the longer you wait to buy gifts, the less likely you are to receive your order before December 25. Someone is going to be one gift short Christmas morning.

Broke by Christmas. Here’s another problem many people don’t realize – if you buy all your gifts in one month, there’s a good chance the only thing coming out of your wallet after will be dust. And who wants to think about the credit card bills! By shopping early, you spread the spending over a period of months, making the financial strain a lot less.

Here are some great tips to starting the Christmas shopping early!
  • List the people who are shopping for and determine how large is your overall budget.
  • Decide approximately how much you want to spend on each person.
  • Make a list of what your recipients want for the holiday.
  • Always keep an eye out for in-store and online sales and promotions. Sign up for newsletters at all the stores you are most likely to visit so you can stay on top of all deals!
  • Buy a few things each time you are out shopping or surfing the internet. 
How do you shop for Christmas? Let us know by leaving a comment below or tagging us at @mynamenecklace. Having trouble figuring out just the right gift for Christmas? Let us help you with our Gift Buying Guide. What about giving the gift of monogram jewelry? Monogram accessories are very much in fashion right now!

Birthstone of the Month - November

Hello November, you kind of crept up on us there. We were so busy eating all our Halloween candy that we didn’t even realize we changed the calendar to November! But here you are! Not only is this the month that houses one of the most well-loved holidays on our calendars (THANKSGIVING!!), but it also when we start our countdowns to Christmas and New Year’s!

For all you November babies out there, aside from enjoying snow, carved turkey and stuffing, and creating Christmas shopping lists, you also get to enjoy a beautiful birthstone, the Yellow Topaz! Topaz means, “fire” in Sanskrit because of its golden colors. This gemstone is most often associated with the earth and harvest time, with the shades of yellow and light brown representing the ancient planting season and the fertility of the earth. The colors are also associated with comfort and stability in the home.


Because the gemstone is related to the home and family, a lot of people believe the Yellow Topaz represents serenity and empathy. The stone is said to promote harmony and soothe the mind.  If you wear a Yellow Topaz, you look to relieve tension and encourage forgiveness. Many say that if you wear a Yellow Topaz while entertaining in your home, it will aid in fostering an atmosphere of hospitality, pleasantness, and harmony.

The Yellow Topaz has often been a symbol of protection and strength. During the period of Ancient Greece, the topaz was said to increase one’s mental and physical strength. Ancient Egyptians used the Yellow Topaz to create amulets that would protect wearers and offer security. And in the Hebrew Bible, the Yellow Topaz is one of twelve gems used to create the breastplate worn by the High Priests. The stone is attributed to one of the twelve tribes of Israel as well as one of the Twelve angels aid to protect the gates to Heaven.

Famous celebrities with birthdays in November include: Matthew McConaughey, Rebecca Romijn, Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, and Rachel McAdams.

November has quite a few wacky days throughout the month! You know sick days right? Well in November, you are advised on the 30th to take a Stay at Home Because you are Well Day! Other fun days include Marooned without a Compass Day, Clean your Refrigerator Day, Have a Party with your Bear Day, and Homemade Bread Day. Don’t forget, November is also home to Black Friday, one of the most intense shopping days in the year (right next to Cyber Monday!) Don’t forget to check out MyNameNecklace on the Friday after Thanksgiving to see what kind of amazing sales we have to offer!


Wear your birthday stone proudly on any one of our amazing Swarovski Crystal name necklaces! Happy November everyone!

Tips for Finding the Perfect Christmas Gift

With only 50-some odd days left, have you found the perfect gifts for family, friends, loved ones, and acquaintances? It’s that time of year when we are all dealing with a last-minute struggle to purchase gifts for family and friends, only to realize that you have no idea what to buy. What does this result in? Usually less than stellar gift ideas that end up either in the back of the recipient’s closet collecting dust or is eventually re-gifted to someone else. How many times have you had to plaster a fake smile on your face and thank your Aunt Millie for yet another porcelain cat? You don’t want to end up like your dear old Aunt Millie, do you? Well, check out our ideas for choosing the best possible Christmas gift!

Pay Attention
Look at the items your family and friends are currently buying for themselves. Listen to their conversations about what they like and what they are looking for. These tactics will help you gain insight into what people want.

Never Wait until the Last Minute
If you wait until Christmas Eve to do all your shopping, don’t be surprised to find mostly empty shelves and little stock left. This brings us to our next point…

It is Never Too Early to Start Shopping
If you are walking around the mall in July and see the perfect gift to give someone, don’t hesitate to buy it right there and then! You’d be surprised how much Christmas shopping you can do when you aren't even thinking about it.

Use the Internet Whenever Possible
If you hate crowds, waiting in line, and want to get your shopping done as quickly as possible, shop online! Not only are you able to find everything you could ever want to buy, but you can also do price comparison at the same time to get the best deal. Just don’t forget to read about shipping policies to guarantee your order arrives before Santa does.

Gift Cards are NOT Taboo
Some people are just really, really hard to shop for. But if you know they like a certain store or genre of items, don’t hesitate to buy them a gift certificate. Contrary to popular belief, it won’t make you look lazy.

Don’t Go By Price Alone
Remember this – higher price doesn't always mean better quality of gift. You can buy something super expensive, but if the recipient doesn't like it, what was the use of spending all that money. Rather than go by price, go by what the person will cherish. Sometimes it is the cheapest thing on the shelf that a person is happiest to receive!


Yes, buying Christmas gifts can be daunting, but don’t worry because we are here to help you! We offer a huge selection of gifts perfect for Christmas! Be sure to check out our new arrivals and our monogram jewelry collection! When do you start shopping for Christmas? Do you have your own plan of action when it comes to buying gifts?

MNN Tip #3

How many letters can I fit on a standard name necklace? Can I get more than one capital letter on my name necklace?

Normally we recommend our regular name necklaces have no more than eight letters. Anything more than this tends to make our regular strength nameplate flimsy and very fragile. But not everyone has a short name! For those of you out there with names that are more than eight letters, we offer double strength name necklaces! These, as the name states, are double thickness to ensure the necklace is durable. Even if you have a shorter name, you can still opt for double thickness, especially if you plan to wear your name necklace daily.

We also know that some names have two capital letters. We do offer two capital name necklaces in sterling silver, gold plated, and solid gold!


Whatever your name necklace needs are, we can help you out!

Fall Recipes We’re Craving

Fall Into FlavorSummer is pretty much officially over once the leaves start changing color and the temperature starts to drop a bit. We put away our barbecues and our summer recipe cookbooks in favor of fuller, comfort foods that will warm the bones and keep our tummies happy. At MyNameNecklace, we love fall recipes and decided to celebrate the season, to share some of our favorites with you!

1) We are simply in love with all these ways you can spike your hot chocolate! Talk about turning a kiddie drink into a fun adult beverage.

2) How can you not want the smell of Spiced Pumpkin Biscuits filling your home? And the best part, only 122 calories per biscuit!

3) A good, hearty Minestrone Soup is just the ticket to warm you up on a cool night! (And this guy includes fun instructional videos with all his recipes!)

4) Speaking of soup, it is an integral part of fall menus, but if we would put our favorites on here, well, there wouldn't be room for anything else! So here is a great list of 20 Fall Soup Recipes. Mmmm, soup.

5) As this one food blogger says, these Apple and Cheddar Scones are “pretty much October on a parchment baking sheet.”

6) Fall is a time for pumpkin, so there may be a few pumpkin-related recipes on here. But we just cannot get enough! And especially with a name like Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, you know they have to be good!

7) Nothing screams “big heaping bowl of comfort food” like a nice bowl of Hearty Chili!

8) Such a great twist on individual chicken pot pies – Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes!

9) While we are on the subject of hearty main dishes, who wants to make us some Beef Stew!

10) And of course the quintessential Apple Pie! (He is a fun salted caramel version we are drooling over!)

Birthstone of the Month – October

Oh, hello there October, you kind of crept up on all of us. We were too busy watching leaves change color, drinking pumpkin spice lattes, and taking our fall and winter clothes out of storage while packing up the last remnants of summer.

Map of Opals in Australia
Map of Opals in Australia
If you are lucky enough to be born in this fantastic month, your birthstone is the beautiful opal. Opals are primarily found in Australia. Other locations where this gem can be found include northern Brazil, Mexico, and certain locals in the U.S. The word opal” is said to come from the Sanskrit word meaning “valuable stone.” Ancient Greeks and Romans prized this gem as it combined all the best possible characteristics from all the gems around the world. In the 1800's, opals were added to the fashion scene, and during the Art Deco period, this gem was used a lot in contemporary art.

For hundreds of years opals have been associated with the act of healing. Some people believe that wearing opals can also bring forth one’s true love. Opals represent loyalty and happiness, and can enhance dreams and imagination. Ancient Greeks believed opals could enhance a person’s powers of prophesy, while Ancient Romans believed opals symbolized purity and hope.
