Buying a special piece of jewellery is very romantic and choosing a piece of jewellery is always very special regardless of the occasion.
It can be a pair of gold wedding bands engraved with a personal message on the inside, a diamond eternity ring for your first wedding anniversary or a diamond or sapphire encrusted pendant for your wife to celebrate the birth of your first baby.
There are many reasons why you should have a piece custom made rather than buying something from a Brighton jewellers shop.
Below are the major reasons why you should opt for custom made jewellery
A custom-made piece is usually unique. This makes it extra special and something to be treasured now and for many years to come.
Most of the ready-made rings in local jewellery stores are mass produced meaning that the ring you buy is among hundreds or thousands of rings made.
With the nationwide online jewellery chain stores replicating their jewellery designs across the country, you may be surprised to find that someone you know has the same ring as the one you have.
One of the best things about bespoke contemporary jewellery is that you can have a design to your precise requirements. If you have liked a certain design you have seen online or in a jewellery store, you can have it enhanced by making some subtle changes.
For instance, you can decide to have a bigger central diamond, a band that is in platinum instead of gold or diamonds on the sides to be princess cuts instead of rounds. Always remember that with custom made jewellery, the only limits are your own imagination.
They are cheaper
You have done your research and found the right jewellery design in a local jewellery shop or online store. You absolutely don’t want to make any changes to it, so why should you choose to have a custom-made piece? The answer is that by choosing the right bespoke jewellery designer, you could get that same piece of jewellery at a lower price.
It is a good idea to look for a custom made jewellery designer who operates from a workshop rather than an expensive retail outlet. Keeping the overheads low means that these businesses can undercut jewellery shops for equivalent pieces while offering a high class bespoke tailor-made service.
Jewellery craftsmen are knowledgeable about jewellery
Many shop assistants are generally not knowledgeable about what they are selling. However, those involved in the manufacture of jewellery have undergone many years of jewellery training and know all about jewellery.
These jewellery craftsmen are therefore able to advise you on all aspects such as why you should choose a certain type of metal over another and which diamonds offer the best value for money.
Custom made jewellery designers usually have trade contacts that local jewellery shops do not have. An experienced bespoke jewellery company is able to source diamonds and other precious stones from all over the world to get the best prices for their customers.
Jewellery is a highly specialised trade. It has different craftsmen specialising in different areas. It is usually good to choose a custom-made jeweller operating in well-known manufacturers such as Hatton Garden in London, Cordoba in Spain or Antwerp in Belgium.
Choosing someone in a specialist jewellery manufacturing area such as those we just mentioned means that you will be able to find the best craftsman easily. Such a craftsman will be able to complete each stage of the manufacturing process and give you the perfect jewellery that will satisfy your needs.
