The Advantages Of Purchasing Custom Made Jewellery
If people are looking to buy jewellery they tend to go to chains or stores that offer mass-produced and ready-made jewellery simply because it’s a much easier process. All you need to do is select the piece that appeals to you, try it on and think about whether or not you really like it. If you do like it, you generally end up purchasing the piece. The real question is: is it a unique piece?
There are thousands of different types of ready-made jewellery available, but none of them will ever really be truly one-of-a-kind. Since they are mass produced, they will not have that personal touch that makes it uniquely yours and there will be many others wearing that same design or one that’s similar.
The only way you can have a truly unique piece is to go to a specialist jeweller to get a piece of custom-made jewellery. Generally this is quite a bit pricier than purchasing something ready-made. However, what you really need to consider is that a custom piece can last you a lifetime and you can pass it on to future generations. Instead of trying to find a ready-made piece that has some of your wants and needs in it, why not purchase a piece that is made entirely to your desires?
Another disadvantage that people face when shopping for ready-made jewellery is that there are simply not enough designs to choose from. Even though there are many types of off-the-shelf items of jewellery, they tend to look the same. In fact, most people that require larger ring sizes or longer bracelets will not find a piece that properly fits them from the items readily available. However, a custom piece may be pricier, but it can address all of your needs.
The most compelling reason to choose custom made jewellery over what is available in stores is that the piece will be designed with your creative ideas as well as unique specifications. The process allows you to have a say in the materials used, the size and the shape of the jewellery being made. Most manufacturing jewellers even allow you to make the request that your designs not be repeated for anyone else under any circumstances.
You can rest assured that when you order custom jewellery, you are getting a high quality piece with perfect attention to detail and special care in the craftsmanship. The process of designing a custom piece of jewellery usually involves designing the piece, casting, setting and using the latest technology for a perfect finish. Your piece can truly last a lifetime and even for generations to come because you aren’t getting a mass-manufactured low-quality piece, but one that was destined to be yours.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when selecting a jeweller to work with is that they listen to your wants and needs. They should keep in touch during every step of the way and allow you to tweak your designs as necessary. Fortunately, there are so many great companies that truly care about making you happy, so it shouldn’t be hard to find a company that’s great to work with.
Lastly, custom jewellery does cost quite a bit more than something mass-produced. This is what most people find as the biggest turnoff when considering whether or not they should purchase a custom piece. However, you need to consider that the amount of money you spend on several mass-produced pieces could be put towards purchasing one high quality piece that truly lasts a lifetime.
You get the feeling of being creative and the jewellery designer will do the rest of the work for you. After all, when you really think about the concept of heirlooms, don’t you wish you had something to pass on? So, if you want to be remembered and want something with a “you” feel in it, custom jewellery is the way to go!
