Essentially, tags hold information that describes what it is attached to. We can appreciate a good tag at any age: babies are hypnotised by them. Give them a toy, they’ll clutch it by the tag.

We appreciate tags because they label all parts of life, from brand name labels on our shirt to the price of a mug or even a medical condition. We even tag our pets. An ID tag and name plate pendants have an incredibly fearless aesthetic, with the space to honour, celebrate or capture special moments, words or dates.

They’re fashionable, functional and incredibly expressive. Dressed down with an open-necked shirt, a great tshirt or a blazer makes for a great statement piece. Name plate pendant necklaces and initials discs are always a steppingstone to a great conversation.

No one gets to decide who you are – except for you

ID tag, initials discs, name plate pendant history

Their design first emerged during the Civil War when soldiers would create their own “name discs” or “soldier pins” out of wood or old coins. While they were haphazardly used during the European wars, the US government understood the value of these tags very quickly, with the armed forces officially bringing them into standard use from 1906.

By the 1920s, all combat and Navy troops were allocated ID tags made from brass, aluminium or nickel-copper alloy. The familiar rectangular shape emerged from WW2 to include their name, blood type, social security number and religion. Today, while the archetypal double corrosion-resistant sheet-steel tags are standard military issue, there are also commemorative, symbolic ID tags available in sterling silver, yellow or white gold and platinum too.

Own your identity. Love who you are in the world
