What's The Best Font For Name Necklaces?

When it comes to jewellery, there's more choice out there than ever. Pretty much every style you could imagine is "in" right now, so it's up to you to decide which look suits you the best.

For example, with our personalised name necklaces alone, we currently offer 8 different styles. Some of you may love them all (we wouldn't blame you!) while others will be drawn to one style in particular.

In this short guide, we're going to help you decide on the best font for your name necklace. Let's get started!

1. The Personalised Old English Name Necklace

This particular style has been a very popular one in recent years. Whether it's on a birth year necklace, zodiac necklace or name necklace, our custom Old English font necklace looks great with both words and numbers.

As a general rule of thumb, the Old English font looks better with slightly longer names and words, but it can also work with a short number of characters as shown by our customer Eve Heslop.

(Eve also paired her custom all caps "EVE" necklace with an Old English Zodiac Necklace. This is probably a good time to mention that our necklaces are case sensitive, so make sure you get the lower and upper case letters correct when you place your order!)

2. The Personalised Name Necklace

This is probably the most classic-looking name necklace out there, which shows hints of Carrie Bradshaw's famous accessory from Sex and the City.

Our Personalised Name Necklace is elegant and understated, so much so that it can suit any outfit you're wearing.

Whether you're taking a casual trip to the coffee shop, or you're going on a big night out, this necklace will get the job done.

Our customer Jessica Stanley went with "Jessie" for her gold name necklace. It's slightly more on the smaller side compared to some of our other name necklaces, so this is the perfect choice for those of you who like jewellery that's a little more dainty.

3. The Personalised Classic Heart Name Necklace

The first word that comes to mind when describing this necklace? Cute! The Personalised Classic Heart Name Necklace is the perfect addition to any outfit.

As you can tell, it's extremely similar to The Personalised Name Necklace, though this piece is finished with a dainty heart at the end of the name.

We find this necklace is a popular choice for those of you who like to wear your own name around your neck, but it can also hold a romantic meaning.

For example, we've heard from many of you who have ordered this necklace with your boyfriend's name next to the heart!

So, while many of our necklaces offer sentimental value, we often find this is one of the most popular of the bunch when it comes to personal meaning.

4. The Personalised Cursive Name Necklace

For those of you who like a little more of a unique style to their jewellery, our Personalised Cursive Name Necklace is definitely for you.

The font of this necklace replicates that of someone's cursive (aka curly) handwriting. It looks super sleek and elegant, and is one of our more delicate name necklaces.

If you like to stand out from the crowd, definitely give this style a go. Just be ready for lots of compliments and everyone asking, "Where did you get your necklace?!"

5. The Personalised Arabic Name Necklace

If you speak Arabic or just want something a bit different, our Personalised Arabic Name Necklace might interest you.

This font is absolutely gorgeous in person, and really displays the beauty of the Arabic language.

Again, this is another necklace that is more on the dainty side, so it can really be paired with a number of different outfits and looks.

Don't speak Arabic? No problem! Just enter your name in English on the product page and we'll translate it for you.

6. The Personalised Butterfly Name Necklace


For those of you who prefer a little something extra on your jewellery, this piece could be perfect for you!

The Personalised Butterfly Name Necklace uses the same font as The Personalised Name Necklace but features a cute butterfly at the end of the name.

Whichever one you choose, this dainty name necklace is a must-have for any personalised jewellery lover.

Are name necklaces still in style?

The short answer is yes, more than ever!

There are so many different styles of nameplate necklaces, meaning there's something for everybody.

At the end of the day, the best font for a name necklace is down to your own personal preference.

You may decide you like one of the more "out there" designs, or something pretty simple and classic. Or you may like a number of the designs and decide to switch up your look on a daily basis!

Whatever you decide, the name necklace trend isn't going anywhere soon, so now is the perfect time to add one (or two, or three!) to your jewellery collection.
