Gold, Diamond and Sterling Silver Initial Jewelry for Your Daughter’s Birthday

For ages, people have tried to express their perspectives through jewelry designs. Personalized initial necklaces are currently considered as the favorites for fashion maniacs, and also these pieces of jewelry are one of the stylish,  creative, and convenient ways to use monograms. It's a bit difficult to find the origin of using monograms to embellish jewelry, but some jewelry enthusiasts believe that it might be a trend back in the 14th or 15th century. 


Today we see this revival trend decoratively, but back in Roman culture engraving hands, coins, jewelry with the ruler's initials, and monogramming was an integral part of their identification.  Also in Greek civilization archaeologists have found the same kind of coins, with the ruler's initial, which helped the historians depict that era. 


The word "monogram" is derived from the Greek dictionary; "mono" means solo and "gram" means letters. Earlier these monograms consisted of two letters, but in the Victorian era, the traditional monogram was made of three letters. Then eventually with change and adaptations, people started engraving these monogram signs on the body adornments and that's how we got the trend of personalization or customization. No matter if it's a birthday, anniversary, proposal, marriage, or even a date, personalized jewelry will leave a huge impact on the wearer. Even now you have the option to choose your favorite style, fonts, color, metals, gems, texts, numbers, calligraphy, or even abstract art. 


The basic form of personalizing jewelry lies in engraving your name's initial. This is not just a name or just a part of identity; it's a proud proclamation to be yourself, it's a tribute to your parents who gave you the name and the power to live on. This personalized jewelry is a way to blend your identity with your daily attire and also it is a very productive way to brand yourself. 


Top Hollywood A-listed celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Marica Cross have also been seen using initial jewelry, as a part of their daily style statement. That makes it pretty for all of us that gifting or buying initial jewelry can bring twists and turns in your regular jewelry boxes. That is the reason we thought this 2021, let's make this initial jewelry a part of all the birthday gifts. 


Frankly speaking, today's young generation is obsessed with initial pendants and necklaces. Their confidence level raises when they adorn their bodies with their initials.  In case of your daughter's birthday you can gift her an initial pendant to express the way you feel for her, or maybe to make her realize how important she is for you. But your message should be hidden in the form of design, style, choosing metals, gems, or even fonts. Also, you can change your styles like if your daughter is a spiritual person you can go customized pendants with initials and divine motifs like hamsa hand, cross, or maybe an Angel Wing.

Top 5 Birthstone Jewelry for Special Occasion

The vogue of wearing Birthstone jewelry is not a new trend. Generally when a kid is born, they are assigned a particular stone, based off of their birth month, to bring health, wealth, and prosperity. It is pretty evident here that the zodiac wheel, horoscopes, and positions of birth planets play an integral part in choosing the perfect stone.

Birthstones are a type of gemstone with some historical and spiritual significance. The birthstones are actually decided through the behaviors of an individual. So the colorful stones are not only for religious belief but also if you try to incorporate the persona in a daily fashion, then why not go for these amazing vibrant gemstones?

Since the inception of human society, people have found several ways to overcome  obstacles. Be it surviving physically or mentally, Darwin’s theory of “Survival for the Fittest” was apt for ancient times too. So after trying so hard to resolve earthly complications, humans took the recourse of stars and stones. They strongly believed that with an utterance of some magical words, the stones can turn into a miraculous object.

Traditionally for every birth month, there is a single gemstone, but exceptions do happen. Sometimes there are multiple gemstones for a single month. As society rides on the wheels of change, the theory of birthstone detection is also not an exception. Not necessarily what has happened in the ancient era should be followed till now, because as we know “change is the only constant.”

At that time, the color of the stones was way more important than fashion. They never asked for proper certification nor they used to judge the stones. For example: earlier it was not a well-known fact that Ruby and Garnet were different stones, with distinctive significance. So now before inculcating our birthstone to fashion, let’s take a short detour and know about the perfect stones for particular months.

  •         Garnet is the birthstone for January babies. It is gifted to symbolize trust and friendship.
  •         February babies, their birthstone is the Amethyst; Greeks believe it helps you maintain a balanced mindset.
  • For those who are born in March, Aquamarine is the perfect stone for you, which stands for hope, health and youth.
  •         April babies are always loyal and high-maintained; so their birthstone should be the prestigious diamond.
  •         The vivid Emerald radiates the power of love and compassion and it is especially crafted for people born in May.
  •         June birthdays claim Pearls and Alexandrite, which mainly works to calm the hyper mind.
  •         The fascinating ruby is for July born and it indicates health and wisdom.
  •         Peridot and Spinel are the signature stones for people born in August, which instills power and confidence in the wearer.
  •         Any September birthday calls for blue Sapphire, which protects you from any kind of harm.
  •         Tourmaline and mystic Opal are the October birthstones, which stand for healing, love and compassion.
  •         Both the November stones Citrine and Topaz are associated with calming minds.
  •         Turquoise Zircon and Tanzanite are gifted to December babies for proper guidance and stability.

So keeping all the factors and importance in mind, Takar jewelry handcrafted a plethora of designs, which contains a mixture of spirituality and fashion.

Migraine Amethyst Ring

The main thing about this stone is the distinctive purple color. The spectacular color of this stone ranges from  deep violet and red combo to a lighter lilac hue. This ring features an oval cut Amethyst surrounded by a solid gold migraine textured melee, which makes the stone much secure. This stone is particularly used for people, who are born in February. The Greeks and Romans used to believe that Amethyst wards off the intoxication and evil powers. For the beautiful color, the gemstone is widely accepted and also complements with yellow and white gold.

Peridot Pendant

Peridot is the stone for people who are born in August. This pendant comprises a serene round cut pristine Peridot. The Pistachio color and the radiance of the stone make it prestigious to wear. The Peridot solemnly stands for strength. The green Peridot crystal is believed to be found in volcanic ashes. The stone especially complements the shine of Gold and protects the wearer from nightmares.

Ruby Engagement Ring 

Ruby is used for its incredible spark and color. It is called the stone of the queens. A fine red ruby bestows the wearer with good fortune, courage, passion, and emotion. Ruby is the stone for July birthdays. The fascinating Ruby is engraved in the center of this yellow gold ring and the round golden melee is giving the ruby a chance for exposure with the minimal metal allowance.

Citrine rope ring

The bright Citrine is the stone for November born. This ring has a design of a scorpion and in the middle it seems like it’s holding the full-cut Citrine with a clasp. The word Citrine is a French word which means “lemon.” In ancient times Citrine was a stone to be saved from snake venom and evil thoughts. Now the theory has turned and it is considered as the stone for success and prosperity and that is why it’s Merchants’ personal favorite.

Dolphin Topaz Pendant

Dolphins are considered lively and energetic animals. It depicts a happy-go-lucky personality. The pendant features the two kissing dolphins and in the middle it contains a heart shaped topaz stone. Topaz is generally blue, but pink topaz is also quite popular nowadays. The imperial Topaz is admired for the radiance and shine.

To conclude, mix and match fashion with your birthstone could be a go-to option for any occasion. Even if you consider the spiritual value, then your birthstone could be your shield forever and also it won’t be much harder for you to carry it in a style.

    Egyptian Gold Jewelry: Pendants and Necklaces

    In some ways, Egypt is considered to be the home of jewelry. The Ancient Egyptian civilization was one of the first where proper jewelry pieces made of gold were seen. Earlier, simple jewelry pieces made out of seashells, bones, and animal skins were popularized and worn by people. While the concept of jewelry existed, people simply did not have proper material available to make better pieces.

    That changed when the Egyptian civilization discovered various tools that could be used to shape and make jewelry out of harder, more durable substances. However, the one single discovery that changed the entire jewelry industry was that of gold. Over time, Egyptians discovered other gemstones and diamonds that could all be used in jewelry.

    Before this time, metals such as gold and silver had alternate uses among people. For example, both the metals were considered to have various medicinal benefits and were even used in utensils, in addition to wounds. For starters, the jewelry culture began among the luxurious, high class royalty who saw jewelry pieces as a means to differentiate them from the masses.

    Over time, a culture developed where jewelry pieces became a part of their culture, and was used to differentiate between various social classes. The royalty, the queens and their mistresses walked around wearing intricate gemstone decorated pendants and necklaces that have over thousands of years created their own particular style and niche in the industry.

    The high end royalty in Egypt appreciated luxurious items, and had a liking for intricate carved jewelry pieces. Here, they were more of an ‘identity’, a means to differentiate between various social classes, than an accessory, as we see in modern times. However, the one discovery which changed everything for the Egyptian jewelry industry was that of solid gold.

    It was the first time the metal was seen to have an exclusively aesthetic use, and began to be used by Egyptians for all sorts of jewelry pieces. This in turn led to a specific style of jewelry that still used designs and features that were seen in handmade pieces of earlier times. However, gold was basically non-tarnishable, had a sparkling brilliance about it, and was appreciated for its luxurious look.

    This in turn led to trends that are popular even today, although with various modern twists to the style that initially became popular in the Egyptian civilization. Even today, various Egyptian jewelry pieces, especially necklaces and pendants are extremely popular among people. These pieces have various old-fashioned features that first were discovered thousands of years ago.

    Solid Gold Hathor Egyptian Goddess Pendant Necklace

    Hathor is an influential Egyptian goddess. She is considered to be the goddess of sky, and the mother of Horus and Ra, who is the Egyptian Sun god. The piece itself features a creatively designed image of Hathor who is spreading her wings whilst on her knees.

    Egyptian goddess pendant necklace

    The Egyptian goddess pendant necklace is available in three color choices: Rose Gold, White Gold and Yellow gold, and has various traditional features coupled with a modern twist and a sparkling polished finish. As always the piece is made and manufactured in the USA, and is entirely handcrafted.

    Finding the right Egyptian goddess jewelry piece can be extremely difficult. This is because unlike the piece that you see above, most ‘Egyptian Jewelry’ pieces do not have the intricate style and specific features that were associated with traditionally authentic Egyptian jewelry pieces. This outright lack of choices means that people might have to look quite a lot to find the perfect jewelry piece.

    In lieu of that, we have another Egyptian jewelry pendant which is sure to impress people wherever you go.

    Gold Egyptian Cartouche Pendant Necklace

    The gold Egyptian Cartouche necklace features an old school Egyptian Cartouche tablet made out of solid gold. Cartouche tablets are an integral part of traditional Egyptian culture and often feature famous hieroglyphic images. These images were once seen in the oldest forms of handmade Egyptian jewelry, but have travelled through thousands of years of time, and can feature in pieces that belong to you!

    Further, as you can see below, the piece is available in a sterling silver setting as well. As always, each and every jewelry item that you see on the Takar Jewelry website uses 100% natural stones and other gemstones, and have been handcrafted with utmost care. Overall, these are some of the best Egyptian Jewelry pieces you will find on the internet.

    3 Stunning Diamond Wedding Rings

    A Stunning Diamond Wedding Ring (for men)

    The tradition of men and women using rings to propose marriage to each other is one that dates back to more than six hundred years. It might as well be the most well preserved tradition that has probably gained even more popularity in the past two centuries or so.

    According to the American Gem Society, the first recorded instance of a diamond ring being used for a wedding proposal was when the Archduke Maximillian of Austria used one to propose to Mary of Burgundy. This one event sparked off a continent wide trend among the Aristocracy and other nobility. Of course, before this diamonds were seen as a valuable good and were used in other forms of jewelry.

    Nowadays, a wedding proposal for their loved one does not make sense to most without a diamond ring. Of course, while diamonds are popularly used both in engagement and wedding rings, choosing the perfect wedding ring is more difficult than choosing the former.

    This is because engagement rings are bought before a wedding ring. Further, as the two rings are often worn together, they should complement each other and be suitable for wearing together. Of course, the reason diamond rings are considered suitable for one’s proclamation of love is that diamonds have always been said to hold special significance.

    Traditionally, diamonds were seen as representations of strength and perfection. Further, it is associated with invincibility, courage and truth, all important aspects of every successful marriage. All these aspects, along with its physical features and transparent structure, are all reminders of qualities that every relationship needs, and is built on.

    This in turn has made diamonds the perfect symbol of love, and it is a trend that refuses to die down. Every year during the wedding season (April-June and September and October), thousands of couples buy diamond rings to officially convey their love for each other, and the same has been observed despite the recent pandemic-affected months.

    Regardless, the high number of choices that exist today, along with the details that you need to sort out makes the task of picking out the perfect ring even more difficult. However, in order to help you, we have listed out a stunning wedding ring which is highly versatile and is more suitable for men.

    It is no secret that women have an insanely high number of choices when it comes to diamond wedding rings. One on hand, while there are only a few designs available for men, women have around half a dozen different cut-styles and further designs in each category.

    There are a high number of available customizations, along with multiple colors options. To make the job easier for men, we have picked out what we think is currently the best diamond wedding ring that you can buy, for men.

    Men's 6-Stone Diamond Wedding Ring

    sterling silver wedding ring

    The ring is not overtly shiny or glossy, and has a subtle presence in spite of its large design. The ring is not the most suitable for stacking, and has a remarkable presence of its own. Its overall subtle beauty and ability to get noticed makes it quite the perfect Diamond wedding ring.

    What’s more, the ring is available in multiple options. The 14 karat white gold wedding ring has a glossy edge which makes it look sharper and brighter than the Sterling silver variant.

    First and foremost, it is an obvious fact that workplaces are not suitable for wearing heavy or multiple pieces of jewelry. While most offices do not have a dress code that governs the kind of jewelry employees can wear, wearing bold or multiple pieces will more often than not be frowned upon, and therefore should be avoided.

    Further, you will not want to wear dangling pendants and necklaces or bracelets with elaborate designs, as that can also be seen as unprofessional. In office situations, it is better to go with subtle pieces such as stud earrings or a diamond ring or two. Anything more than that might transform the entire look for the worse!

    Hence, for workplaces, we recommend a minimalistic approach to give you an overall professional business-like look.

    The casual look

    Most designer jewelry with their bold intrinsic designs is perfect for casual wear. It is the party that you are invited to, or the date that you have on the weekend, when you can be bold and free with the pieces that you wear. Here, wearing multiple pieces to create a unique look, and using bold colors that stand out is highly recommended.

    This means that you can try big colorful pieces such as jewel-laden pendants and earrings or elaborate gold yellow bracelets and necklaces! Blending the right jewelry for your chosen attire can go a long way in brightening up your entire personality, and people are more likely to remember and notice you, especially in crowds.

    Further, the variety in the types of designer jewelry available means that in casual situations you can also experiment with different kinds of pieces, such as anklets, toe rings and multiple studs. However, if you choose to wear multiple pieces, you should ensure that they are complementary and proportional with respect to size and color.

    The idea is to wear contrasting colors that complement the overall feel of the jewelry that you want to wear. While experimentation is encouraged, you should know the difference between a good look and one that is simply an overkill!

    For formal and semi-formal settings

    Apart from the two above kinds of looks that you need to think about, there is a third distinct category of occasions when you might want to stand out without attracting too much attention or wearing too many pieces. These occasions can be your friend’s wedding, or a formal workplace dinner.

    In these situations, while the aim is to create a memorable look that is noticed by people, you should consider going with simple, bold pieces that have the ability to stand out without making a person think that you particularly dressed up for the occasion. This is true for weddings in the sense that you wouldn’t want a look that takes away attention from the bride, or any such occasion where you want to be noticed without particularly standing out.

    Over here, the idea is to not wear too many pieces and colors, but just enough to be perfectly complimentary to your attire and give you a simple, bold look. A workplace-related commitment, or a formal dinner is perfect for such looks.

    The minimalistic look

    The minimalistic approach towards jewelry has taken off, in the last few months. Minimalistic pieces, or pieces that are “barely there” are simple yet stylish jewelry pieces with unique styles that are made to stand out without taking up too much visual space, in a look. They have simple lines and engravings with less colors and distinct discreteness that requires a person’s close attention to decode its entire essence.

    Minimalism is an approach which started out as a way of living, or existing, a state of mind where one does not require too many materialistic things to be happy and at ease with his surroundings. In much the same way, minimalistic jewelry has an aura of calmness which people relate with confidence and boldness. Today, you can easily find minimalistic earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and various other types of minimalistic jewelry on any of the many jewelry websites on the internet. You don’t need to worry, and should remember that most people nowadays buy their jewelry online!

    Further, because of their simple designs, minimalistic jewelry is highly customizable, and often has space for engravings of initials and other customizations that you might want! Further, one should be careful about not wearing too many such pieces at once, because that can take away the very essence of the jewelry, and give you a cluttered look that will not do you a lot of favors, no matter what kind of occasion it is. If pulled off properly, minimalistic jewelry is fit for all kinds of occasions and places.

    The custom look

    At the end of the day, the kind of jewelry that you wear should be as close a reflection of you as a person, and it is your tastes that should define the jewelry that you wear. This helps in making you feel comfortable with your look, and also gives you a look which is more honest and true. It is the kind of person you want the world to see, which should define the kind of jewelry that you.

    What color clothing looks best with rose gold jewelry?

    When you look for matching jewelry for your clothes, it is the color, style and whether the tone of the piece is complementary with the clothes that must be seen to make the correct decision. For rose gold jewelry, wearing darker shades is recommended. Rose gold jewelry is suitable for light colors too, but not if the clothing is too bright, or bold. Rose gold jewelry is more suitable for a subtle look.

    What color clothing looks best with silver jewelry?

    The reason silver jewelry is so extremely popular has got much to do with its versatility. Silver jewelry can be worn with all sorts of clothes and other jewelry, regardless of color or style. Further, wearing different types of silver jewelry can also give you a keen, confident look.
