Moms love to wear their kids’ names or initials on a fabulous piece of jewelry. I know I do! Customized jewelry is a great gift for the mami in your life, whether she is your best friend, your sister, your better half or your own madre. Following are some of my picks—all of which I own—with my personal take on each.
Isabelle Grace Jewelry
I was able to sample Isabelle Grace Jewelry’s Signature Mini Tags ($125), which I ordered with the initials of my two children and my stepson. The item arrived only a couple of days later, in a beautiful two-toned box. The necklace looked so beautiful and dainty I was afraid it would break, but after over a month of wearing it day and night, I can say it is beautifully resistant. That, aside from looking very pretty and demure. It’s one of those pieces you don’t need to think about taking off at night, or ever. Fast shipping, pretty items and good quality. An excellent choice for the understated mom.
Not Just Any Old Day
This is jewelry that helps you celebrate a special day, every day! I received Your Special Day Calendar Bracelet ($70) with the date of my choice, which was an anniversary, given that I could not choose just one kid’s birthday over the others! It’s a chunky bracelet with a big charm, so I’d recommend it for larger wrists (mine is small).
Not Just Any Old Day also carries several higher-end options in sterling silver. A more affordable and surefire fit may be the Key to My Heart ($80) calendar necklace, in antique silver or antique brass finish. Fast shipping and the item came in a pretty mesh bag.

Nelle & Lizzy Charm Bracelet
I discovered Nelle & Lizzy six years ago, when I ordered their Double Ring ($79) as a gift to myself for Three Kings Day. I had my daughters’ names engraved on the rings, and to this day it is the single most admired piece of jewelry I own. This year, I decided to splurge on their customized Charm Bracelet ($38). The kids love seeing their names around my wrist.
All Nelle & Lizzy items are shipped in a beautiful box filled with lavender. I had chosen “best fit” when designing my bracelet but was not so happy with how the charms were arranged when I received it ,so I requested they be placed differently. They accommodated in a graceful and timely manner and a week later I had my beautiful bracelet back, just the way I wanted it. Great customer service, unique designs and excellent quality.
Lisana Falcón Jewelry
Lisana Falcón is a Miami-based jewelry designer. She personally designs and crafts her pieces, some of which I own and am complimented on regularly. She now carries the Carmen Bracelet Set ($120), which can be engraved with the names of your kids, their initials, or any word of your choice. Personalized care, fast shipping, original bold designs.
