It was in the 1980's when blings were introduced. But at the time, due to their ostentatious nature, these chunky and flashy adornments were not immediately embraced by the general public. It was a style that most people associate with ghetto and hip hop, and not everybody understands (or accepts) this style.
However, over the past few years, blings slowly crept their way into mainstream fashion and have become part of the younger generation's fashion statements. Everywhere they go, music artists and famous celebrities can be seen in ostentatious name blings, and fans are just happy to wear the same matching bling.
Nameplate Necklace Blings: Ostentatious, Yet Unique Jewelry Pieces
From oversized objects to flashy dollar signs, blings come in a wide variety of designs. But perhaps nothing is more special and personalized than a name necklace bling.
A nameplate necklace is composed of a chain lace and text, in this case the name, which is emblazoned on a sterling metal that serves as the pendant. The text can be written in any style the owner prefers for as long as it is not too long since it would look tacky. It would also look less beautiful if you look like you are wearing a signage. Less than ten characters is enough so as not to shrink the letters thereby making it less readable.
While some would want their real names on their nameplate necklaces, others would prefer having having their nicknames or fake names on the necklace. This might be because they do not want some random people to know their names by simply looking at their chests. Well, it might just be a precaution for precocious worry warts. Other people also want their names on their nameplate necklaces simply because they want to show off their existence and their personal style.
The nameplate necklace can be customized. It may be done with classic style or have a trendy look depending on the owner's personality and preference. And just like other jewelry pieces (such as name bracelets and personalized bracelets), a nameplate necklace can be personalized so it's versatile and unique as each person would want to have his own design.
In addition to that, it can also be worn together with other necklaces to exude a bolder statement. It can be worn to match a sporty outfit or to complement a formal attire. It is also a perfect gift to be given to loved ones to cherish their existence and importance. Nameplate necklaces can be worn by both men and women, young and old. Younger owners may opt for a more chic, cute and cheesy designs while mature owners may have simple and elegant designs.
