For those who love simple but lovely jewelry, they can opt for a personalized initial necklace. The necklace Stephanie ordered on Eve's Addiction is hand-stamped and with her January birthstone, adding a more personalized touch. Read the complete review below to also find how she felt when wearing the necklace→
Custom jewelry is timeless. Whether you’re treating yourself or buying a gift for a loved one, personalized jewelry is a wonderful memento that anyone will cherish.🥰
While name necklaces are always a popular option, some jewelry wearers prefer something simple. This is where initial necklaces come in. You receive a small gem with your initial, whether your initial is carved or formed from the metal.
Many people add a birthstone to their necklace for a more personalized touch. Birthstones have existed for thousands of years and add a pop of color to any initial necklace.
Eve’s Addiction offers both in their Hand Stamped Gold Mini Initial Custom Birthstone Necklace.
I ordered this necklace and wore it for a couple of days. I absolutely love it!
The Necklace I Ordered
My name starts with an “S,” so I chose that letter as my initial. My birthday is in January, so I chose the garnet birthstone. You have two font options:
I chose modern, I thought it looked better than the script font.
I’m not the biggest fan of large and flashy jewelry, so I love the simplicity of this jewelry piece. I also try and add my birthstone to all personalized jewelry pieces, if I can. I absolutely love the garnet stone; it’s a beautiful deep red and looks amazing with the yellow gold in this necklace.
Both the garnet stone and the stamped initial pendant are very small, so they don’t overtake your outfit. This also makes this necklace perfect to wear for all occasions.🔅
Even though the necklace is simple, it’s high-quality. The necklace is made of durable gold-plated metal and the Rolo chain doesn’t tangle.
The “S” is stamped on a circular gold disc. It’s very simple and cute. But I’m really in love with the garnet stone. The stone is embedded in a gold ring. Garnet’s deep red shade looks lovely with gold so I’m very pleased with the way this necklace turned out.
I don’t like how this necklace has two different pendants. I think the necklace would look better if the initial and birthstone were on the same larger gold pendant.
However, this isn’t a terrible issue. I still absolutely love this necklace.

Wearing the Necklace
As stated previously, the necklace has a small fish hook clasp. But you can put it on yourself—it may be a bit challenging at first but I got the hang of it. The clasp is also on the left; I’m right-handed so this is another reason why putting on this necklace is challenging.
I reviewed My Name Necklace’s classic name necklace and their difficult hook was one of the main factors I didn’t like.
Comparing this clasp to the one on my Eve’s Addiction necklace, the clasp on the Eve’s Addiction necklace is easy to work so you can keep the lever down. The clasp on the My Name Necklace piece is really tough and isn’t easy to put on by yourself.
The other downside about this necklace is the pendants aren’t attached to the chain. I have to be careful about how I maneuver the necklace and store it, or else the pendants will fall off.
Otherwise, I love wearing this Eve’s Addiction necklace. The chain is 16 inches long, which is perfect for me because I prefer necklaces that reach my collarbone.
The necklace is very comfortable and doesn’t snag on your skin, hair, or clothing. While you should avoid wearing it in the shower and during exercise, this is the perfect daily necklace.
This necklace is available in gold-plated silver. The necklace is beautiful and the gold color is lovely. They don’t offer other metal options for this necklace, which is a shame.
Both pendants are extremely small. The product description states the initial plate is 3/8 inch and the birthstone is ¼ inch. I honestly can’t tell much of a difference, they both look identical in size.
This necklace is ideal for those who prefer smaller and simple necklaces. That’s my preference so I was very happy with the small pendants. But if you prefer an extravagant initial and birthstone necklace, opt for a bar design or even an infinity necklace.
Ordering the Necklace
Eve’s Addiction process is pretty self-explanatory. You choose your birthstone, the font, and your initial.
The only issue with the ordering process is you don’t see how your initial would look on the pendant. Soufeel spoiled me; when you order their Carrie Name Necklace, they display your name in the Carrie font and the metal color you’re choosing.
However, they do have a font preview in the images section.
You also have different add-on options:
- Gift wrap service
- DIY gift wrapping kit
- Jewelry box
- One-year warranty
- Rush my order
I actually chose the “rush my order” option. I’ll describe those details in the next section.
Rush My Order
The “rush my order” option🚀 ensures your jewelry is made and leaves the warehouse in 24 hours.
Keep in mind, you have to order the necklace before 1 PM EST so your necklace ships the day you order it. Otherwise, your necklace will ship the following day.
The difference is confusing and I wish Eve’s Addiction detailed this better on their website.
The time I ordered my necklace was about 10:30 EST. Sure enough, it was shipped in 24 hours.
I chose standard shipping and it took about nine business days to receive it. While that’s a little long, even for standard shipping, my area has bad COVID-19 cases and shipping is still delayed.
Eve’s Addiction’s Custom Hand Stamped Gold Mini Initial Birthstone Necklace is a lovely necklace that’s perfect for anyone.
It’s great to order for yourself, especially if you’re not sure which custom jewelry option you want. You receive an initial necklace with your birthstone, offering a pop of color while keeping the necklace completely personalized.
Overall, I love this necklace. The gold is lovely and I love the garnet stone they used. The necklace is simple and cute, perfect to wear daily.
There are some downsides with this necklace. The clasp is a little small and it’s on the left side. There are two pendants, which I think is odd, and they’re not attached to the chain. They also only offer gold as the choice of metal, which decreases the user’s personalization options.
Otherwise, I would highly recommend this necklace to anyone who wants personalized jewelry!✌🏻
