Christmas and New Years have long passed. Valentine’s Day memories are fading quickly. How do you go about keeping the romance that the holidays produced going? Simple: remember that romance needs no holiday. A tried and true way to keep those romantic flames blazing is by creating unique and affordable custom design jewelry.
Surprisingly, custom design jewelry is far more affordable than most think. Often by using old and tired jewelry, you can create a fresh, new piece that will thrill the love of your life and spark up that romantic feeling without breaking the bank. You know she’s got broken gold necklaces and a few gemstone rings she has mentioned turning into new jewelry. Why not surprise her with a sparkling pair of gemstone earrings, made from the jewelry debris cluttering her jewelry box? But, how do you go about that. It is far more simple that you think.
Find a trusted and capable jeweler. Generally custom design jewelry is not something that the chain jewelry stores that you find in the mall can do, so look into family owned and operated shops in your city. They are far more likely to have the artisan capable of creating your custom design jewelry. Also make sure that the jewelry store you choose has the capability of melting down the metals you plan to recycle.
If you don’t have your own ideas for the custom design jewelry, (after all, you’re not a designer or a jeweler), trust your jeweler to show you some of the designs that you might like. Also, be sure that the pieces you plan to use in the custom design jewelry are comprised of the quality metals you want in the new piece. Again, your jeweler can help you determine which will work best.
The most important aspect of creating custom design jewelry from old, broken and forgotten pieces is to be 100% sure that the old pieces are just that…old pieces and not heirloom jewelry passed down but not worn. It may be a bit tough to keep the new piece a surprise if you need to ask but if you don’t ask, you could make a mistake that will definitely affect your hopes for romance.
Bottom line, if you want to keep the romance alive all year round, custom design jewelry is one of many ways. The best idea is show your love on a daily basis, gifts of jewelry or not.
