Ways That Custom Jewelry Beats Mass-Produced

December 20th, 2016

Many of the pieces of jewelry on the market today are mass-produced. For every necklace or bracelet at the average jeweler shop, there are a thousand exactly like them. If you're passionate about buying and giving items that are as considerate as they are unique, you'll want to put your time and energy into finding jewelers in Michigan that allow you to customize every aspect of the gifts you purchase. Here are the ways we think our custom jewelry can beat the one-size-fits-all average.

Perfect Colors

Many artists have shown that colors reflect emotion and when we see them can even transport us back in time to specific times and places. Maybe you met your girlfriend or wife near the Atlantic, and that dusky shade of blue will forever remind you of the waves that lapped at the shore where you first saw her. Perhaps you honeymooned next to the Mediterranean or in Hawaii, and teal makes you think of the afternoons spent snorkeling. Did you go on your first date to hike through the dappled trails of an emerald forest?

The color you choose for your custom jewelry in Michigan can have significance that only you and your loved one understand. You don't need to settle for the clear, standard-cut diamond—we can help you choose from emeralds, sapphires, topaz, rubies, and a variety of other precious stones.

Unique Settings

The way the stones in jewelry sit impacts the whole look of the piece. You can have high settings to show off a particularly well-cut stone, or have lots of stones set in clusters to produce a bunched, floral effect. When you choose the type of setting you want for the jewelry you're ordering, you can get the piece that you envision down to the finest detail of the metal and shape of the setting.

Personal Details and Requests

If your grandmother had a beautiful piece of jewelry that was one-of-a-kind, but has since been lost, a jeweler who specializes in custom pieces can help you recreate it. Highly detailed requests will give you the chance to totally express yourself and create a piece of one-of-a-kind art.

Unfortunately, in an age where so many products are created from molds, we've largely lost the special quality that unique objects had for people throughout human history. If you're looking for gifts that are more personalized, finding a jeweler that can talk you through all of the ways to customize your order is valuable.

Engraving Options

Engraving is one of the most personal additions you can make to jewelry. You can choose phrases, quotes, place names significant to you and your loved one, or the dates of events. With a variety of fonts and styles of engravings, you can pick something that will reflect the sentiment that you're hoping to get across.

With all of these options, you can create a gift that is as unique as you can imagine.
