How to personalise gold necklaces by London jeweller Maya Magal
If you're asking us, personalised necklaces are the ultimate jewellery gift. When our founder Maya starts working on the designs of a new personalised jewellery collection, she makes sure that each piece is as timeless as it is versatile, allowing the wearer to mix 'n' match different charms, necklaces and bracelets to show their own individual style and unique personality. This makes the process of curating a gift fun and creative, whether you're looking a gift for someone special, marking an occasion or seeking a wonderful way to treat yourself. 

We're taking a look into personalised necklaces, our favourite charms to go with them, and our most popular necklaces for lovers of everything glowing and gold!

How to personalise a necklace?

Engravable Necklaces

Let's kick off the list with the ultimate personalised jewellery staple: engravable necklaces! Our Engravable Collection was designed with personalisation in mind, for you to create truly personal keepsake gifts. Choose from our selection of gold plated and solid gold engravable necklaces, beautifully handcrafted by our jewellers in our workshops.

For a thoughtful, twinkling gift, go for Engravable Round Charm Necklace, adorned with white topaz stones. This timeless piece is finely crafted by our jeweller Raven, and engraved by our London team with an initial or illustration of your choice. Looking for something a little more minimalistic? Our Engravable Square Charm Necklace is, with its contemporary and timeless look, an instant classic you're certain to love.

Our Lava Engravable Puddle Necklace has become a real Maya Magal classic, handcrafted in sterling silver and plated with 18ct gold. This necklace brings elegance to any outfit thanks to its organic and fluid shape. Engrave it on the front or on the back to add your personal touch. 

Layering Chains

If you're looking for a gold necklace with a personalised touch, we really have everything you need. Our personalised jewellery collection is designed to create a gift unique to you, or the piece's future wearer. When it comes to personalising a necklace, we recommend starting with the base: the layering chain. Choose between our range of 18ct gold plated chains, or treat yourself or your loved one to an ever-lasting gift and check out our solid gold layering chains, finely crafted in 9ct gold.

If you're looking to treat the minimalist jewellery lover in your life, you could purchase a versatile, easy-to-style layering chain and have them choose their charm themselves. That way, the charm is a personal touch that they have chosen themselves. Choose from a Short Chain Gold Necklace, Medium Chain Gold Necklace, or a Long Chain Gold Necklace. With so many charms available, they’ll be spoiled for choice. 

However, what says "I really thought about this" more than a carefully curated personalised pendant? Keep on reading to find out how to personalise our range of chains.

Charms & Personalised Charm Necklaces

Make a set of layering necklaces 100% you by mixing 'n' matching our collection of charms. Choose from twinkling zodiac charms, meaningful birthstone charms (one for each month!) and discs designed to be engraved with an initial or illustration.

Zodiac Charms

Our Zodiac Charm Collection features a set of 12 zodiac charms, each available in sterling silver and 18ct gold plate. Designed for you to create a personalised, contemporary and mystical look, you can add these charms to a simple chain, and mix 'n match it with our collection of birthstones for an extra personal touch.

Birthstone Charms 

Our Birthstone Charm Collection is different to the zodiac charms. Birthstones are assigned to each month and carry special meanings and qualities. They are handcrafted in sterling silver, gold plate and solid gold using precious and semi-precious stones, from vivid emeralds to vibrant turquoise gems.

A team's favourite is the moonstone gem, the birthstone for June. Moonstones are pale, iridescent stones full of wonder. Our Birthstone Jewellery Collection and Rough Gemstones Collection both feature moonstone jewellery pieces, carrying the power of the stone to restore inner strength and encourage inspiration.

To make things a little easier for you, we also have a selection of Solid gold Birthstone Necklaces, consisting of a layering chain, a 9ct gold birthstone charm and a geometric charm. These beautiful and precious pieces are designed and handcrafted with care to become future heirlooms.

Initial Charms & Necklaces

Our initial charms and necklaces are the perfect accompaniment to your favourite everyday gold chain. Choose from silver or gold, and have a beautifully delicate initial charm to add to a solid gold necklace and make someone’s day that much more special.

Our refined Solid Gold Initial Necklace is handcrafted in 9ct gold, a minimal and contemporary style that makes a thoughtful and personal keepsake gift. Our collection of solid gold personalised necklaces is designed for you to add a personal touch to your or a loved one’s signature jewellery looks with on-trend, delicate pieces. Choose a loved one's initials or the first letter to your favourite word for a unique addition to your style. Shop all of our Gold Initial Charms to choose the letter you need to add a personalised effect to one of our solid gold necklaces. 

Personalised Layered Looks

Layering is key when it comes to creating a personal jewellery look that really feels like you, and to curate a delicate look or a more statement effect. We recommend starting with a simple chain, whether in gold plate or solid gold. Then, add a slightly longer pendant, personalised with your very own birthstone charm and an engraved disc charm. To finish off the look, add some twinkling details by choosing one of our zodiac charms, and add it to a third necklace. 

Follow our founder Maya's example and go for a solid gold layered look. Maya's everyday look consists of a set of simple, everyday chains and a set of three charms, engraved with the initials of her daughters and husband!

Our range of solid gold necklaces also work so well layered with a 9ct gold choker. Looking for something delicate, elegant and timeless? Our Solid Gold Pearl Choker Necklace features a set of delicate freshwater pearls on a fine gold chain. It works beautifully on its own or stands out layered among longer solid gold necklaces and solid gold chokers. 

While these solid gold necklaces may not be personalised, we at Maya Magal believe any gift can be personalised if you want it to be. Maybe in the way you give the gift, or what the meaning behind the gift is. Jewellery is individual and special no matter what. We love every solid gold necklace for their unique charm.
