Guide to Buying Bespoke Jewellery for Loved Ones
Shopping for jewellery can be a very personal experience, as there is a lot of thought to go into it. However, when buying for a loved one, bespoke jewellery is a great option as you can surprise them with something unique and personal, that symbolises them and your relationship.
But when it comes to designing jewellery there can still be a lot of thinking to be done, which is why we have provided a guide on the different areas to consider with bespoke jewellery:
1. Do Your Research
Search through their current jewellery collection to see if you can find any consistency, that can give you an idea on their tastes and preferences when it comes to jewellery. For example, which metal do they usually go for? Do they like many or minimal embellishments?
Also, you’re going to need to know their ring size. This can be tricky if you’re keeping it a surprise. Ask family members or close friends if they already know or try to borrow a ring from their collection – without them noticing – to bring into store to be measured.
2. Recognise the Different Metal Hues
Instead of going straight for a classic silver piece, browse the different metal hues and materials available for bespoke jewellery. Gold is a very traditional hue to go for and can feel very luxurious. Or if you’re looking for something more chic and contemporary, rose gold is currently trending.
But you can also look at mixing two hues together if you can’t decide to create a beautifully unique piece.
3. Consider their Lifestyle
The best thing about bespoke jewellery is you can make it fit for any type of lifestyle. If you’re buying for someone who enjoys going out for the evening a bespoke pair of dangly earrings or an eye catching necklace would be a great idea.
Or maybe they live quite a casual lifestyle, but like to be quite chic and style savvy – a rose gold bangle would be a great addition to their wardrobe.
However, for more romantic gestures and special occasions, a bespoke ring would be the perfect choice.
4. See the Gem Colours Available to You
Adding a coloured gem to bespoke jewellery can incorporate part of their personality. When choosing a colour, you could consider their favourite tones, their birth stone or maybe a colour that is significant to your relationship.
5. Making It Personal
Another way to add a personal touch to bespoke jewellery, for sentimental value, is an engraving. A meaningful quote, a significant date or initials are popular choices for an engraving, as it can serve as a constant reminder of good memories and our loved ones.
