The square monogram ring with 22-karat-gold overlay ($425), like most Mannin designs, can be worn with or without a monogram.
Monograms are cool again, with retailers from big (J. Crew) to small (Clare Vivier) etching customers’ initials on everything from pajamas to purses. Now monogram jewelry is getting hipper, too, thanks to Los Angeles-based jeweler Mannin.
Mannin’s Insignia Collection is made up of minimalist necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings and more in all silver and silver with 22-karat-gold overlay. All the pieces have a weighty, rich feel; our favorites are the rings, such as the square monogram ($425) or the rounded version ($345). There’s also a statement cuff ($575) that murmurs “dignified lady” and a dog tag pendant ($325) that seems made to be paired with a chambray shirt.
These versatile pieces are from Tiffany & Co. alum Suzanne Donegan, who started selling solid 18-karat versions four years ago to celebs such as Halle Barry and Jennifer Aniston. This year, with the rising price of gold and the craze for monograms at lower price points, she debuted her plated pieces, which retail at a more reasonable $150 to $600.
All pieces are handcrafted by a third-generation downtown family jeweler, so Donegan’s got quick turnaround--she can fulfill Christmas orders placed by Thursday.
