Initial here

Leave it to artist TJ Kelley from CMP fave tj & co to create a doable alternative — the sophisticated initial necklace. Her single letter pendant hanging from a dainty ball-bearing chain is a subtle way to celebrate your mama-hood. At just $30, you could even snag one for your tween daughter as a worthy replacement for clunky dog tags or blingified letter necklaces.

If the plain silver doesn’t appeal, add a diamond accent for another $25 or upgrade to solid 14 karat. Eh, who needs groceries this month anyway? -Kristen

Congratulations to Linda P, winner of the silver initial necklace with diamonds from tj&co!
