1. Merci Maman Personalised Intertwined Charm Necklace
This thoughtful necklace features two circular, intertwined charms - both of which can be engraved with the wording of your choice. We love the idea of putting names on the bigger circle, and a special date on the smaller one. Available in gold or silver, keep in mind when ordering that personalization can add a little longer to the delivery time. That being said, John Lewis promise to deliver your special gift within 7 days of ordering.

3. Missoma Gold Initial Pendant Necklace
Initial pendants have always been the king of personalized jewelry gifts and this Missoma necklace proves that.
