Initial jewelry is experiencing a revival thanks to the current craze. Despite monograms being one of the earliest forms of identification, found on Roman coins bearing the initials of its rulers, the tradition of can be traced back to the beginning of time when they were one of the earliest forms of ornamentation on jewellery.

Monograms and Alphabet necklaces have different meanings depending on their context
In Greek, the word monogram means "a single symbol composed of two or more letters interwoven, often an abbreviation of a name. ", and derives from two words "monos", meaning single and "grams", meaning letters, respectively. Monograms during the Victorian era were traditionally made up of three letters, but sooner or later started with two letters. Over time, monograms became a form of identification beyond coinage, with monograms adorning their tablecloths, armour, and other belongings, instead of appearing on coinage.
Monograms engraved by hand beautifully were a popular practice in Victorian times. The monogram was often used by Victorian aristocrats as a symbol of their social status. It was during this time that strict standards for monogram forms emerged. Monograms have a very long history and are closely related to royals and aristocrats, but have remained popular throughout history due to their simplicity and added beauty and elegance.
