As unique and special as your loved one is, a piece of custom jewelry is an ideal gift to reflect their distinctive personality. A Custom Jewelry Designer will work with you to tailor an exceptionally designed piece to incorporate the facets of their personality for a truly one of kind expression of your love and devotion.
The Appeal of Custom Design
Occasions such as marriage, the birth of a child, or a graduation are popular occasions for conferring with trained artisans to commission a custom designed piece of jewelry. Other significant events to commemorate may perhaps encompass a quincinera, sixteenth birthday, or other milestones. Whatever the occasion, a Custom Jewelry Designer can specially create a treasure to honor the occasion.
Wedding, Engagement, Anniversary
An item most often evoked by the term “custom designed jewelry” is an engagement or wedding ring. Indeed, couples can express personal style in harmony with their dreams for a lasting lifetime commitment to their partner with the imaginative design of a custom engagement ring or wedding band. An inscription added to each member of the wedding set affirms the couple’s vow.
Anniversaries are equally momentous events in a couple’s lifetime commitment. Whether choosing a brooch to showcase the semiprecious pebbles collected on the beach or a fiery golden topaz to replicate the golden sunrise over the water, a handcrafted item will embed the romance of the honeymoon as it celebrates each anniversary. Milestone anniversaries traditionally associated with particular gemstones such as the ruby, diamond, and pearl will take on personal significance when fashioned into a piece of jewelry that embodies a couple’s life together.
Significant days occur in every person’s life. These days provide the perfect occasions to consult with a jeweler specializing in handcrafted custom designed jewelry. Any sixteen-year old-daughter will treasure forever a pendant, bracelet, or any jewelry designed and created just for her. Likewise, a son’s sixteenth birthday may be equally commemorated by a unique ring stylized just for him, which has become a fast growing category in jewelry design. First communions, confirmations and Bar or Bat Mitzvah’s will be indelibly etched in a child’s memory with that perfectly fashioned piece to observe the gala affair.
Old is New Again
Utilizing what is already in your jewelry box is the forte of many jewelers. The master jewelers will work with their customers to create fabulous works of art within each customer’s budget. Vintage and family heirloom jewels take on a new appearance when updated with new settings or incorporated into a completely different item of jewelry. Grandmother’s brooch could be restructured into a dazzling pair of earrings; mother’s damaged class ring refurbished with a modernized setting becomes a classy gift for her fiftieth birthday; or dad’s fraternity pin restored and enhanced with additional details will make his retirement a day to remember.
Worth the Decision
Custom design jewelers simplify the process for their clients. In the initial consultation they will help guide the client’s choice with expert advice and clarification for each step of the process.Â Investing the time and imagination into a custom designed, handcrafted jewelry item expresses not only your adulation for your loved one, but by the memories aroused by the jewelry designed and created just for them, they will always remember how much they mean to you.
