Olivia Munn was the closing keynote speaker at the Women and Wellness portion of the Forbes under 30 summit in Detroit, Michigan. She took the stage with Maggie McGrath, editor of Forbes Women Magazine to share her thoughts and stories. Naturally, she dressed the part of a stylish celebrity using her influence to encourage young leaders in a trendy tone-on-tone look. She combined shades of the sun along with layered necklaces – one of which was our signature initial necklace, for a strong look, as well as with a black shirt-jeans combo for a classic look.
Even though personalized jewelry has been around for decades, the initial necklace has seen a resurgence since Megan Markle wore an ‘A’ symbolizing the birth of her son. Princess Diana was one of the first royals to adopt the initial necklace when she wore a ‘D’ back in the 80s.
Since every personalized item of jewelry is associated with a memory and carries a deep meaning for the person wearing it, it is safe to invest in without the fear of stepping out of style. This especially makes for the sweetest gesture to highlight a milestone or as a gift during the holidays for someone special. When gifting or buying for yourself it is interesting to note the recent layered necklaces trend, can be translated to ring and bracelets as well, while experimenting with different metal types and styles.
For a bold statement, spell out words of significance like name of your spouse or child, or even show some patriotism.
