Give the Gift of Custom Jewelry | Christopher's Fine Jewelry

In today’s world, there are and endless number of jewelry stores and national chains to consider when shopping for jewelry. But an option many people never consider is having a custom piece crafted to their exact specifications. However, custom handmade jewelry is not a luxury reserved only for the rich and famous; You may be surprised to find that commissioning a jeweler to craft a unique piece by hand is more cost effective and less complicated than you may think.

Custom Jewelry Can Be Cost-Effective

When you go into a store and see a generic engagement ring that has been mass-produced thousands of times, you will pay the same price as everyone else who came before you for the exact same piece. However, commissioning a custom ring can often cost less than a national brand name ring of similar quality and build. Being able to have a direct hand in the creation of a beautiful gift such as a piece of jewelry can be worth an immense amount of value in and of itself.

Your Custom Jewelry Has Unique Character

One of the greatest advantages of commissioning a custom piece of handmade jewelry is the fact that you can reflect yourself and your personality within the design and feel, resulting in something that is not only unique, but uniquely significant to you as well as the recipient. The time, effort, and care that goes into the process of commissioning custom jewelry is what makes it a gift that goes above and beyond anything you can buy out of a display case.

Helping to Create a Unique Gift

In the process of working with a Master Jeweler to create a unique piece of jewelry, your input in the design and creation process is equally as important as the Jeweler’s role in creating the piece. While the jeweler brings your ideas to life, your design ideas and influence are what make a gift truly unique and suited to a specific individual.

You Don’t Have to Compromise

Though custom designed jewelry requires time, energy, and effort, the payoff is a no-compromise gift that fits your exact specifications. There’s no need to debate between mass-produced pieces based on what requirements are satisfied. With the custom design process, your jeweler will work with you to ensure your work is a perfect fit for your wants and needs.
