Still Mourning Celine's Alphabet Necklace? We've Found 16 That Are Just As Good

If you’re an avid Who What Wear reader, you’re probably familiar with that Celine initial pendant necklace that pretty much made its way through the whole of Instagram last year. (We still can’t get enough of it either.) Unfortunately, with the departure of Phoebe Philo, we can no longer get our hands on the real deal unless we manage to track a second-hand one down on Vestiaire Collective—and trust us when we say the mark-up is pretty phenomenal.

However, it’s not only Celine that has created standout initial pendant necklaces… From Jennifer Meyer's letters, one of which was recently spotted on Meghan Markle at Wimbledon, to Monica Vinader's bold take on the look, you’ll be thrilled there are 16 others we fashion girls are really into. Not only are they the perfect personalised piece, but they’re also great for layering with other chains (or silk scarves). The styling and outfit options really are endless—and you can keep scrolling see what we mean.
