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!”

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.

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!

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.

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!
