The last 5 years have seen a large rise in the popularity custom-made jewelry. Buyers are seeking out distinctive and personalized ways to express their personality through their jewelry choices.

It is obvious that retail world is rapidly changing. The mass-market approach is leading way to a more personalized one. The internet allows shoppers to create and customize their own unique shopping experience, 24/7.

And according to recent data, almost 80% of Americans shop online. In a digital world designed to offer up the precise goods the consumer wants in an instant. Is it any wonder that the modern consumer is becoming slightly self-centered? As retailers, we are discovering that offering customized products is the only way to succeed going forward.

Before the mass production of clothing became normal, a customer employed a dressmaker. This artisan would ‘custom’ the item to fit their body – and no one else’s. Now, buyers scrounge through overflowing racks at the department stores, searching for the perfect fit. We rarely find that perfect fit, but we make do. When it comes to things like clothing, the ability to cheaply mass produce it probably means we’ll probably never return to the old-fashioned tailor. At least not en masse. Jewelry, however, is the perfect vehicle for personal customization.

Custom jewelry is made of precious metals, rare diamonds and gemstones. It involves intensive, skilled manual labor. It also requires knowledge of jewelry fabrication as well as CAD skill.

Psychology even supports the importance of personalization. More and more retailers are finding that this is the way to securing the customer’s heart. We saw this and got into making Unique Custom Made Jewelry as soon as we could.

To be truthful, we all like to think of ourselves as unique. It’s part of being a human. Our story is different from everyone else’s. And in the 21st century, we display our personal story in the way we live, the purchases we make, the experiences we choose – and the jewelry we wear. This is not just a trend of the masses. Even the world’s most rich and famous seek meaning and authenticity in their jewelry purchases.
Jewelry may also be chosen to represent a certain feeling or personality trait. During a crime wave, one New York jeweler said that women were flocking to her dagger designs. It’s a reflection of their sense of toughness, more akin to armor than jewelry. Whether representing a feeling, or celebrating an event, one thing’s for certain – today, jewelry is getting more personal than ever.
This Dagger Pendant was based on one from some video game. Our client also wanted her name on it, so she picked a font and we added enamel to it. We also oxidized the handle.
Like all art forms, custom jewelry design is subject to market-driven demands, fashion trends and contemporary styles. The trend towards custom made jewelry is in part a backlash to traditional notions of fashion. Consumers increasingly want jewelry that is special and personal. Millennials especially different from everyone else. Yet, ironically, it seems that custom made jewelry is becoming the next big trend. Everyone is starting to say they offer Unique Custom Made Jewelry rather they actually do or not. So how can consumers be unique, when everyone is trying to be ‘unique’? First, it’s about authenticity. Jewelry retailers who offer true custom design can help their customers connect to their personal sense of self via their unique jewelry piece. Retailers who can provide this authentic connection for their customers will reap the rewards.

If you don’t have images from the internet, crudely sketch out your idea as best you can. If your idea isn’t ultra-specific — or if you want to further articulate your desired style — start prowling the Internet sites like Pinterest or Instagram and if necessary, sketch the elements (filigrees, unique settings, organic lines, mixed metals) that you want used in your ring. The more specific you are will get you closer to your vision and in less time
Since you have an idea ready, send your sketch(es)and or images over to us and we will get your custom project moving in the right direction. Once the design is completed, you will see a CAD rendering. You will then have a chance to make any changes that you want. Once you are happy with the design, we will move on to manufacturing your piece.
