Personalized jewelry is special. Not only do you get to try your hand at crafting a unique design, but you get a chance to put your unique spin on it.
From engravings to the metals it's made of, personalized jewelry is the new fad.
Plus, personalized jewelry makes the perfect gift. Your ride-or-die friends and family members will love it. Personalized jewelry is not only special, but it allows you to express yourself and tell the story you want.
So what makes them such great gifts?
We’ll cover that, as well as give you some ideas on how to surprise your special peeps.
5 Reasons Personalized Jewelry Makes the Perfect Gift
We could go on forever about how amazing personalized jewelry is, but we’ve narrowed it down to five top reasons you should consider it for your next gift idea.
1. Personalized Jewelry Tells a Story
Do you have a piece of jewelry with a history?
Most of us remember who gifted our jewelry and the reason they did. And, it makes it special. Different.
Why? It tells a story.
When you craft personalized jewelry as a gift, you’re not just inscribing text and symbols on some metal. You are telling your boo, mom, or bff how much they mean to you and memorializing a connection you have with them.
2. Personalized Jewelry Is Unique
We live in a world of mass production and fast fashion. And, while it can definitely benefit society to some extent, sometimes we kind of overdo it.
That’s why gifting personalized jewelry will set you apart. Your loved one will squeal with excitement when they open their present to find such a thoughtful piece.
It’ll be one of a kind, just like the person you love.
3. Personalized Jewelry Let’s You Be the Artist
Have you ever crafted a paint-by-numbers portrait? Or perhaps you drew your own tattoo design because you wanted your influence in the work of art.
If so, you’ll love personalized jewelry. It’s the perfect gift where you can express yourself and shape the meaning of the ring, necklace, or bracelet.
4. Personalized Jewelry is Heirloom-Worthy
One of the coolest things about quality jewelry is its potential to be intergenerational. But why do we hold on desperately to heirlooms?
Sometimes it’s because we want to remember a loved one who may not be with us anymore. Other times, it’s because the piece just looks awesome.
Well, with personalized jewelry, you get the best of both worlds. Due to its unique nature, personalized jewelry can last you and your lovies a lifetime.
Make sure you’re getting a quality jewelry piece. None of that dollar store stuff!
5. Personalized Jewelry is Just a Better Gift
Let’s face it, when you gift something uniquely crafted, it’s just better.
Why is that?
Well, besides all the reasons above, you just get this warm, lovey-dovey feeling when you see your bestie or your mama sporting that ring you got them over the holidays. It may sound a bit selfish, but why can’t you also enjoy the meaning of something you’ve gifted? Life’s too short for that.
Ways to Personalize Your Jewelry
So now that you are convinced that you want to craft a unique piece of jewelry for your peeps, let’s chat for a sec about how you can get your artistry on.
Galentine’s Day Gifts for Your Gals
Okay, so you don’t actually have to celebrate Galentine’s Day, but giving your girlfriend(s) a unique ring or necklace is the perfect gift.
Here are some ideas:
- Gift a signet ring that has both of your names inscribed.
- Gift a necklace with a pendant that has both of your initials on it or even “BFFs”.
- Pick out a unique charm or pendant and get one for both of you to wear on your bracelets.
You don’t have to be Leslie Knope to know how awesome this jewelry would be!
Holiday Memories for that Amazing Woman
Maybe your mom is proving to be a fun grandma to your kids. Or, you want to memorialize that funny childhood memory for your sister.
Surprise them during the holiday season (or even their birthday) with a personalized piece of jewelry.
There are tons of options:
- Get them a sterling silver band with family member’s initials on it.
- If they love sunflowers, get them a sunflower necklace and disks with all of the grandkids' names on them.
- Set their birthstone in a bracelet for a gorgeous year-round piece of jewelry.
You really have unlimited options!
Bridesmaids Love Special Jewelry
Getting married soon? Do you have your bridesmaids’ gifts picked out?
You can really show them you care and that you appreciate their time and effort by crafting personalized jewelry that will probably start a hugging marathon.
Considerations for Gifting Jewelry
Now that you have some ideas, it’s always good to consider a few things before clicking that Buy button. What’s their style? What size do they wear? How tall are they?
The last one sounds like a stretch, but you should know that jewelry isn’t just about the piece, it’s about how it fits.
Sizes and Lengths
Ask your dad to figure out your mom’s ring size. Or, before you order it, have dinner with your bff and chat about jewelry in a casual, sneaky way. You can do it!
If you’re purchasing a necklace, think about:
- Their clothing: do they wear a lot of v-necks or princess cut tops?
- Adjustments: is the necklace you’re thinking of getting adjustable? If not, is it easy to adjust them at home?
- Their face shape and height: For the shorties in your life, you may want to consider a shorter chain length. Taller girls have a little more breathing room when it comes to sizes.
Don’t buy blindly. Buy intentionally.
Is your sissy more preppy or more goth?
You need to think about how they dress and what style they evoke. That way you can personalize the jewelry to match their wardrobe.
Also, consider the material. Some people believe (whether it’s true or not) they look better with silver jewelry over gold pieces. And, you’re bound to have a friend or family member that just *adores* rose gold.
Be mindful of these points. It’ll give your gift an extra oomph of love.
