Keep it personal this holiday with customizable luxury gems that are the ultimate token of love. We have found six beautiful, wearable pieces of personalized jewelry that are destined to be treasured for years to come.

Personalized jewelry has been worn for centuries. Elizabeth I is said to have cherished a locket ring containing a portrait of her mother, Anne Boleyn. Prince Albert celebrated the birth of each of his and Queen Victoria's nine children by presenting his wife with a heart-shaped enamel locket containing the children's hair, which she wore together on a bracelet.

Monica Rich Kosann leads the pack in modern-day lockets. The geometric lines of her classically elegant gold elocket, with its diamond pavé center, make this piece easy to pair with any ensemble ($3,900).

Jennifer Alfano elevates birthstone gems to true fine jewelry with her range of pendants. With the retro elegance of the hammered disc design, you can choose just one or mix it with the birthstone of children and significant others (pendants from $1,750)

Chicago-based, third-generation jeweler Dana Gordon launched Dana Rebecca designs in 2007. Her collection is designed to be worn, loved, and shared each day, and her simple initial cuff featuring two pavé white diamond initials makes for a memorable personalized gift ($1,650). 

Andrea Fohrman jewelry is always inspired by nature and her Phases of the Moon necklace has the designer looking to the skies. Add a personal touch and a delicate splash of color to everyday wear with this original pendant and charm, available from Ylang23, which allows you to choose your own number, initials and the phase of the Moon under which you were born.

The clean, architectural lines of Jemma Wynne jewelry lends itself to an elegant engravable bangle that would make it a treasured item in any bracelet stack ($2,850).

And with Phillips House's Love Always cuff, you can add your own message of adoration on the inside ($4,100).

Whether you want a necklace or a bracelet, celebrate your own unique history with these luxurious everyday pieces of personalized jewelry.
