Why You Should Buy Custom Engraved Jewelry as a Gift
There are multiple psychological reasons that people prefer personalized correspondence and items. For one thing, personalized experiences are separate from the norm and give the receiver a semblance of power. The recipient gets an experience that’s not just relevant to them but also unique to them.
That’s one of the reasons that engraved jewelry is such a great gift for a loved one. Whether you’re looking for an engraved engagement ring or a birthday gift for mom, a customized piece of jewelry is an excellent option.
But what makes jewelry engraving such a powerful gift? Read on to answer this question and learn the core benefits of purchasing custom pieces for the special people in your life.
There Are Hundreds of Engraved Jewelry Possibilities
Variety is one of the most important considerations for anyone shopping for gifts. You want some leave to choose a present that you know the recipient will love. Custom jewelry is an amazing choice because there are hundreds of possible items.
A few of your choices include:
- Engagement rings (featuring both diamond and other gemstones)
- High-quality, high-end timepieces
- One-of-a-kind necklaces
- Bracelets and anklets
This ensures that there are options available for any wearer on any occasion.
You Can Create Your Own Piece
Custom engraved jewelry isn’t only personal because you can etch any words you like onto it. It also is personal because you can envision literally any design and tell us about it. Our team will bring it to life with quality metals, authentic stones, and proven methods of handcrafting.
For example, diamond rings and other engagement rings are engravable and come in tons of different styles. You can create a custom solitaire ring for your partner or design something flashy with a thick band and dozens of glimmering gemstones. No matter what, you’ll be able to bring your vision to life with infinite nuances and customizations.
This is also true for other types of jewelry that you may want to purchase. Bracelets can be cut into any shape that you like. Necklaces can show off a completely custom charm cut into a shape that symbolizes your loved one’s passion or interests.
A Simple Design Process
The process of creating custom jewelry with us is an extremely simple one. All you need to do is schedule an appointment at one of our Texas custom jewelry stores. You can also do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this appointment, you’ll share your idea. You should have some rough sketches available to show us or at least a thorough description of what you’re looking to have made.
At this point, we’ll create a computer-aided design (CAD) of your prospective piece. You can then see exactly what the final product will look like and adjust it as you see fit.
Finally, our jewelers will mold the piece, cast it, and set the custom-cut gemstones in their perfect position. Once you get your design, you can then give it to the recipient with the knowledge that it’s 100% made for them.
If you prefer, though, you may also choose a ready-made design and put a personal twist on it. We offer tons of different predesigned rings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, and more. You can add text or images as you desire, change the colors of stones and metals, or add unique features.
Because each piece is handcrafted as you order it, you know that your custom jewelry will be made with top-notch materials. There won’t be any cutting corners to get your piece together quickly. You’ll know exactly what custom designers are using and how each material fits into your new engraved piece.
This ensures that your engraved locket, necklace, ring, or other items will be of the highest caliber. It will last a lifetime because of the way that it was designed with love, care, and professional tooling methods that create durability. Expert tools and knowledge ensure precision and prevent your piece from breaking.
Multiple Stone Options
We brushed on the idea of a custom stone before, but this is even more important than you may believe at first brush.
People have different color preferences when it comes to jewelry. Some people prefer warm colors while others prefer cooler options. Some people also associate meanings with gemstones, believing that their birthstone is lucky, ruby will bring them love, or sapphire will bring them peace.
Other recipients simply have strong wardrobe preferences and will get more use out of a stone that showcases a specific hue. For example, a person who wears primarily neutral colors may like a trendy black diamond or a classic white stone. People who wear a lot of blues and greens may prefer emerald, sapphire, aquamarine, or turquoise.
When you create a custom piece, you can choose the perfect stone to fit your loved one’s needs. You can also determine the cut of the stone based on their preferences. Round-cut stones are ideal for those who prefer softer aesthetics while sharper emerald cuts are ideal for witty and sharp personalities.
It’s also easy for your recipient to replace the stone in a few decades if it scratches or wears down. This wear and tear is unlikely, but it does happen. Stones also can be lost, but expert jewelers can easily replace them with an identical gem.
Sentimental Jewelry Engraving
Custom jewelry is inherently sentimental because you can tailor it precisely to meet your loved one’s preferences. The color of the gemstone can be their favorite and the cut can be their dream look. The band or chain can be altered to meet the vision that you have for their gift.
The bottom line is that a lot of care goes into creating custom jewelry pieces. However, getting a personalized engraving on the piece can make it even more special. Some engraving ideas include:
- The recipient’s name or initials
- Your initials alongside the recipient’s (perfect for engagement rings)
- A quote that the other person finds meaningful and unique
- A saying that brings comfort or luck to the wearer
- A word describing the recipient, your relationship, or something that you want to provide them with (luck, joy, authenticity, etc)
- A word or character in another language with a special meaning
Some people also opt for small patterns or images on their engraved locket, necklace, or bracelet. This is common on larger pieces that have a lot of metal to display pictures on. However, you can also get fine and intricate etchings on the bands of your ring.
Consider a checkerboard pattern, vintage-look clock imagery, or a shape like a star, a flower, or some clouds. The options are limitless. All you need to do is decide on something that the recipient will find meaningful.
Uniqueness is one of the other reasons that custom engraved jewelry is so sentimental. Since you can match it to your personal vision, no two pieces are going to be alike.
Giving a completely one-of-a-kind gift shows that you care enough to get the recipient something unique. It’s sure to make the recipient feel special and valued, especially since they know how much care went into its design. Your gift is irreplaceable and priceless.
When a jewelry piece is 100% unique, it also is easily identifiable. The average person loses about 9 items every day, and losing jewelry that you wear often is inevitable. This means that your gift needs to be easy to describe, identify, and find.
One-of-a-kind pieces are much more difficult to lose permanently. This saves your recipient stress and grief if an issue arises.
Nurtures Strong Bonds
Your gift is always going to be a reminder of the special and fulfilling relationship that you share with the person you’re buying it for. This will constantly keep your bond strong regardless of distance.
For example, if your best friend lives in a different part of the world, a custom bracelet will make them feel as though you’re always together. You can make this feeling even stronger by requesting a matching one for yourself!
As your loved one holds onto your gift, they will always think of the importance that you share in each other’s lives. They are more likely to remember to nurture this connection during their busy life. This means that you’re investing in a bond that lasts forever.
