If you are looking for the most precious type of jewelry, you won’t find it in stores. After all, what is so special about something that hundreds and thousands of other women are likely to be wearing as well? If you want something truly spectacular then you have to go down the bespoke route. When you have custom jewelry made just for you, you are the only person in the world to have that ring or that necklace. Does it get much more special than that?
Nonetheless, if you are going to go down this path, then it is definitely not a decision that should be rushed into. You need to be one hundred percent certain that the jewelry you are having made is something you are going to love for a lifetime. To ensure this is the case you must consider the following points…
- Take your time – Impulse buying is a major no-no when it comes to custom jewelry. You need plenty of time to think about it. Don’t just consider the now, think about the future as well. Can you see yourself wearing this piece of jewelry five years down the line? Or is it something that is merely in trend at the moment yet could quite easily be deemed as unfashionable before you know it?
- High quality/certification – This is especially important when buying diamonds, gemstones, pearls, and alike. Not only do you want to be assured that they are certified loose diamonds but you need to be certain they are of high quality. These all come with either certification or particular grading methods. For example, authentic diamonds come with GIA certification rating them based on cut, clarity, color, and carat. This is something you need to assess before you allow the said diamonds to be incorporated into your jewelry design.
- Personalisation – Last but not least, if you are having custom jewelry made then it is always nice to personalize it to suit you specifically. For instance, why not opt to have the jewelry engraved?
Another route to go down would be to go for special order jewelry. A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that this is actually custom jewelry. However, that is not the case. Rather, with special order jewelry, it is as if half of the job has already been done. Essentially, the jewelry will have already been pre-designed, but it is not complete. Therefore, it is up to you to decide how you would like to finish off the piece. You get to select from a list of options. This usually incorporates the following…
- Metal color
- Stone choice
- Metal content
- Earring type
- Metal finishes
- Stone cut
Finally, the last thing you need to ensure you do is to find a quality bespoke jeweler in order to provide you with the stunning and unique piece of jewelry you desire. Take your time to look at all of the different options available.
