One of the best gifts you can give the ones you love is a piece of jewelry. However, when you buy jewelry at the store, chances are, someone has that exact same piece. This lessens not only the expense value of the piece, but also the sentimental value as well. For this reason, many people are taking to custom jewelry. Custom jewelry can either be made yourself or it can be designed for you. The idea is that no one else will be able to claim that they have that exact same piece. After all, just like tattoos, a piece of jewelry should be unique, as it says a lot about the person who wears it.
With do it yourself jewelry, we’re usually talking about charm bracelets or beaded necklaces and bracelets. For this type of jewelry, you can visit your local hobby store as they usually have entire kits designed specially for custom jewelry. You can design hemp bracelets, beaded bracelets or combinations of the two. Nothing says best friends forever like the gift of a custom made piece of jewelry. While these kinds of custom jewelry are great for yourself or among friends, it’s hardly something you’d give to a loved one on an anniversary or engagement.
Professionally Designed Jewelry
In the case of a special date or situation, some people will have a piece of jewelry designed for them. They will go into a jewelry shop and will tell the person doing the customizing exactly what they want. Sometimes, they may even have the pieces professionally designed for them. Whichever way they choose, the idea is that they want a piece of jewelry that no one else in the world has.
Many celebrities go this route. They have all the money in the world and they want their jewelry to be unique. When they get married, they will often have their engagement rings customized to the point that the person who designs it is sworn to secrecy and may even sign an agreement stating that the design will not be replicated.
Custom jewelry can be more expensive than normal pieces of jewelry. That’s because custom jewelry, since it is not mass produced, takes more time and special attention to design and make.
So, whether you wish to make your own jewelry or you want to have your piece professionally customized, you can take pride in knowing that no one in the world has that exact same design. This makes the piece extra special, perfect for any occasion or for letting the person you give it to know that you love them so much that you’re willing to give them a truly unique piece of custom jewelry.
