Many will find the perfect bridal jewelry by choosing and combining different elements of jewelry and using the main building blocks to unveil their truly unique styles. Others will opt to add some personal touch to make their jewelry more unique.
And some will find that the standard diamond center stone, possibly set in platinum or gold and flanked by side stones doesn’t meet their preferences.
Well, if you have a clear vision of how your jewelry should appear and can’t find it anywhere, you might be the ideal candidate for custom made bridal jewelry. Every wedding is unique, but if you want yours to stick in the memory of your loved ones for decades to come, then custom jewelry is for you.
Make an informed decision. Before starting the journey to custom designing your jewelry, first understand the details and review what it will take to turn your inspired idea into a reality.
On the one hand, your custom jewelry will be a reflection of your individuality, and no one else will have jewelry like yours.
On the other hand, you have to bear in mind that it will be more expensive; it’s unpredictable, requires more involvement and might take longer than walking into a jewelry store and choosing an engagement ring.
Understand the process. Get to know what’s involved in designing custom jewelry. However, the specifics will vary according to your needs and the jeweler you choose.
Sketch out your idea. You’re planning to make an engagement proposal but can’t find the right band type for your loose diamonds. Start by sketching what you envision as best as you can.
You can get ideas from the internet and jewelry stores that catch your eye. It’s crucial to be as specific as you can as it will increase the chances that you can better express your idea to your jeweler.
Choose the right jeweler. Find a jeweler you can trust to do a good job. Seek referrals from family and friends and be sure the person you settle for has experience in custom design. For instance, when looking for a jeweler who creates custom engagement rings, ask to see some of their previous work.
Work closely with your jeweler. It’s not uncommon to feel intimidated when speaking to an experienced jeweler about your vision for your jewelry, but don’t shy away from asking questions and seeking clarifications. Once you have the design(s) and a trusted jeweler, you need to collaborate to create a perfect work of art.
