1. Missoma Gold Initial Pendant Necklace
Initial pendants have always been the king of personalized jewelry gifts and this Missoma necklace proves that. We love the unique ridge design of this striking necklace against the simple font of the lettering.
The the orb chain is a gorgeous touch to make this piece stand out and it's also available in silver for those who aren't partial to wearing gold jewelry. A piece that would make one of the best 18th birthday gifts if you're looking to treat your daughter, granddaughter or niece to something special.

If simple gold or silver jewellery isn’t quite their bag, PDPAOLA have a colourful solution. Their initial necklaces are glistening with a combination of different stones that catch the light beautifully.
The chain is adjustable, meaning you can switch up the length depending on the neckline you’re wearing or even layer it with other necklaces. If you're looking for impressive 30th birthday gifts that don't cost the world, then this could be a great option.

A fashion editor go-to, Otiumberg is beloved for creating beautifully made jewelry that can be worn every day. Case in point: the teensy alphabet stud, which can be styled as a solo piece in the lower or upper lobe, mixed and matched with multi-piercings or doubled up to make a pair.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
