By the 19th century, it was common for many to own a sentimental memento with initials. Beforehand, monogrammed items were most commonly used to identify the work of local artisans and organizations synonymous with regional kingdoms.
The decorative trend of signature mementos became increasingly popular during the Victorian Era and could be seen on lockets, signet rings, earrings, silverware, and other metal-based novelties.
