Jewelry Repair 101: What To Know To Keep Your Valuables Looking VibrantNovember 13, 2017
Gift-giving can be tough, even for the most creative among us. When you’re stuck on what to get the spouse, friend, or relative who has everything, personalization can turn any run-of-the-mill idea into an extraordinary one. And there’s no better way to show someone you care than personalized jewelry. By working with your jeweler to create custom gold jewelry or sterling silver pieces, you’ll literally get to put a unique stamp on your gift. Here are just a few occasions that are perfect for giving personalized jewelry as a present.
Anniversaries are typically one of the most obvious reasons to head to your local jewelry store. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a cookie cutter necklace, bracelet, or ring! Whether you want to commemorate your first year together or you’ve reached a big milestone, you can create a one-of-a-kind piece that really captures your love. If your partner is picky about jewelry, this is also a great opportunity to design something you know they’ll like and will actually wear!
A birthday comes but once a year and it’s the ideal time to design something unique to the birthday boy or girl. You can add in their initials, inscribe a special message, or incorporate their birthstone in a special way. Once they blow out the birthday candles, recipients of all ages will be thrilled to unwrap such a thoughtful gift and will think of you every time they wear it.
- Thanking Your Wedding Party
Birthdays and anniversaries are typical occasions for gifting jewelry, but you may not have thought about giving it to those who are involved in your special day. Bridesmaids gifts have really taken off over the past few years, and personalized jewelry is a great way to ask them to be a part of your wedding party. Not only can this serve as a thank you, but these pieces can also be part of what your wedding party wears. Think about designing custom pieces that will coordinate with your colors and overall feel. Rose gold is often a popular choice due to its pleasing hue (14-karat rose gold is actually 58.5% pure gold with copper added!), but sterling silver and gold are excellent options, too.
- Long-Distance Friendships
When you live across the country from your best friend, it can be difficult to stay connected. Daily life can become complex and you may not talk as much as you once did. Since meet-ups may be few and far between, you can easily send them a reminder of how much you mean to them with a custom BFF piece. Friendship necklaces don’t have to be two halves of a heart; they can be pieces that subtly coordinate or match, with inscriptions, jewels, or metals you both love. When your best friend wears the piece you bought for them, they’ll instantly feel closer to you, even if you’re hundreds of miles away.
- Just Because
No matter the circumstances, personalized jewelry can make a great gift when you’re struggling to come up with an idea. Alternatively, it can be a wonderful way to show someone you love them during a challenging or exciting time. Rather than pick up something ordinary from any department store, you can make something that encapsulates their personality and tastes. A gesture like this can make all the difference — and you don’t need to have a particular occasion for it.
From baby showers to the first day of school, working with your jeweler to design a completely unique piece for someone special in your life can really pay off. Get in touch with your custom jeweler to find out all of the gift-giving possibilities with which you can surprise your loved one.
