Kardashians love Personalized Jewelry!

The Kardshians are always ahead of style and trends and this week they showed off their favorite trend in full force with not one but two Kardashians wore personalized jewelry in the past week. The Kardashians have a long history of loving personalized necklaces. Let's take a look at what pieces the Kardashian sisters have worn recently.

Kim Kardashian has especially shown her love of personalized jewelry after the birth of her daughter, wearing various pieces of jewelry with the name of her daughter, North. The bride-to-be recently was spotted with a lovely pair of name earrings. Kim has shown her lover for personalized earring in the past when she wore earring initials of soon to be husband, Kanye West. Kim's look is subtle but stylish and oh so sweet! Get inspired for Mother's Day by getting earrings like Kim's!
Khloe Kardashian wears an Arabic name necklace

This past week  Kim's sister, Khloe Kardashian wore an Arabic initial that her soon to be brother-in-law has been known to favor, while gallivanting with Khloe's new alleged rapper boyfriend French Montana. The name necklace says "French" in Arabic which is just more proof that these two are indeed dating. No confirmation yet, from Khloe, though we keep spotting together. We think love is in the air! Good to hear Khloe is starting anew after her breakup form Lamar Odom.

The Weekly Jive: Week of April 13

Hey you lovely ladies and gentlemen out there, it is time for another weekly recap of the goings on here in the MyNameNecklace office! Who out there watched Game of Throne's Sunday? Were you shocked/saddened/wildly hsppy about [spoiler's] death?!?! I can tell you most of us here were the very latter! Well, that's enough chit-chat for today. Time to get on with this week's roundup! Enjoy!

 1) The Stylist Pick for this week has us continuing our love affair with the bar necklace. We are loving the Sterling Silver Nameplate Necklace.

 2) Mad Men started their last season this week. Are you tuning in? What would be your ideal ending to this amazing show?

 3) The Kim Kardashian and and Kanya West nuptials are being planned as we speak! May 24 has been earmarked as the big day and aside for a small hiccup from France, everything is going according to plan. Do you think it is going to be as opulent as all of us in the office think it will be?

 4) This clip from a recent episode on Ellen with Dax Shepard. Who doesn't love Brad Pitt?!

5) Did you hear the news? A New Kid on the Block is now off the market - Donnie Wahlberg proposed to girlfriend Jenny McCarthy and of course, she said yes! Donnie always was my favorite new kid!

And as a little added bonus, someone in the office found this and we couldn't resist putting it on here. Just a little something to make you laugh!

The Weekly Jive: The Week of April 6

Hello, your Weekly Jive is now in session - bringing you all the hot-to-trot topics discussed around the office this week! Ever wanted to know what we love talking about? Well we got it here for you! Without further ado, here is the Weekly Jive for April 6, 2014!

1) Our Stylist Pick of the week is one of our favorite monogrammed accessories - these darling Monogram Stud Earrings in Silver. These are a definite must-have accessory now that the sun is starting to shine and hints of Spring are starting to show through the clouds!

2) Did you catch the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones!? It was all we could talk about Monday in the office! The story line is really picking up and we are making sure those who have read the books remain silent about what's to come! But the best news of all is that in the same week, Game of Thrones was not just renewed for season 5, but 6 as well! That gives us all a reason to do a little happy jig! (Tyrion agrees!)

3) Congrats goes to the University of Connecticut Huskies for winning this year's NCAA Championship. They beat the University of Kentucky's Wildcats 60 to 54. If this wasn't one of your teams, well, there is always next year!

4) This week we said RIP to a lot of famous people, including Mickey Rooney (actor), Peaches Geldof (journalist and model), John Pinette (comedian), and James Hellwig (professional wrestler), known to many by his WWE stage-name The Ultimate Warrior.

5) And on a lighter note - we've been loving Billy Eichner's Man on the Street interviews. The latest, he goes around with Paul Rudd asking people if they would have sex with him for a dollar! Would you? :)

Picture Yourself Wearing a Bar Necklace

As we have seen so far this year, jewelry accessories are leaning toward the more simplistic side of style. One necklace that exudes this simplistic trend but is also very hot is the bar necklace. This beautiful necklace silhouette is a fun bar, handing either horizontally or vertically, from a dainty chain.

All our favorite fashion-forward celebrities have been rocking the bar necklace, including Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Emma Watson, and JLo. We've even seen Kim Kardashian and her fiance, Kanye West, sporting matching bar necklaces engraved with their daughter's name, North.

One of the best things about bar necklaces that we absolutely love is that you can put just about anything you want on one. Put your name and an icon on a gold bar necklace, like this:

Gold Plated Bar Necklace with Icons
Or without an icon and a bit thinner, like this:

Horizontal 18k Plated Gold Bar Necklace
Or go the minimalist route and get simply your initial!

Horizontal Bar Necklace with Initial

You don't even need to go horizontal, but go crazy with a vertical bar necklace! You can even get multiple bars!

Engraved Name Tag Necklace with Freshwater Pearl
And for moms, we have some really great bar necklace ideas that will be perfect! (And don't forget, SHOP10MOM for 10% off your order for Mother's Day!)

Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Always Buy Personalized Jewelry

Let's face it - personalized jewelry is an endless trend with no signs of tiring out. We love name necklaces, monogram necklaces, bar necklaces, and any other piece of jewelry that is unique and special to the wearer. Whether you have an original style or you want to stand out in a crowd, do it with personalized jewelry. But you may be asking, "Why should I buy a personalized necklace instead of something non-personalized?" Well, we don't just have one answer for you but ten amazing reasons why personalized jewelry is always the way to go!

1) Monogram necklaces and name jewlery are really amazing gifts that recipients will always treasure! Whenever they wear it, they will think of you!

2) When you buy someone a personalized piece of jewelry, you will instantly become their favorite parent/sibling/friend/grandparent/coworker...etc. You get the point!

3) You totally don't have to get your name on a name necklace! Get something zany and outlandish that is fun and will definitely spark a few questions! Are you a Ninjasaurus? Show it off!

4) Because Beyonce rocks personalized jewelry!

5) Speaking of Queen B, who wouldn't want to rock this necklace below? You can wear your very best attribute around your neck in style!

6) Because wearing your name around your neck is a heck of a lot cooler than any other way to show off your name!

7) Personalized jewelry is a great gift for any occasion and something that is sure to be loved. And with Mother's Day right around the corner, don't you want to find the perfect gift for mom? Of course you do! (And don't forget, we still have an awesome discount for all our lovely blog readers - 10% off with SHOP10MOM)

8) While Facebook only let's you say if you are single or taken, a name necklace allows you to be a bit more explicit regarding your relationship status!

9) Personalized jewelry can teleport you to the moon for a mid-day cocktail! Well, no, it really can't, but you can totally feel as though you are going to the moon!

10) Because personalized jewelry is awesome and we wouldn't have it any other way!
