They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this is the same for beautiful jewellery. What one person deems a beautiful item of jewellery, others may not like. So if you are looking for some jewellery that suits your particular tastes, you may wish to consider commissioning a bespoke piece. Having some made bespoke is one way to make sure that you get what it is that you want. If this sounds appealing to you, then here are the considerations you will need to take on board before having your jewellery designed by a professional.

Listing What You Want

The first thing that you will need to decide is what type of jewellery you will have made, whether it will be a ring, earrings, necklace, or any other kind of jewellery. When you know what it is that you want, you can then start to focus on having it made and chose from what to make it.

What Materials Do You Want?

You will also have to choose what type of metals or precious stones you want to have your jewellery made from, as there is a lot of choices available in the modern marketplace.
  • ·         Gold
  • ·         Platinum
  • ·         Silver
  • ·         Diamonds
  • ·         Rubies
  • ·         Sapphires
  • ·         Emeralds

 Whether you are looking for something flashy and in your face, or something that is more subtle and discreet, there is plenty of choices to choose from when deciding what precious metals and stones to use. The biggest factor to consider what to use in your jewellery will be your budget.

Setting Yourself A Budget

It is important that you set yourself a budget before you start speaking to jewellers, and make sure that you stick to it. You can work out the rough costs involved by keeping an eye on the price of precious metals. The price of precious stones you can also research online and the quality of the stones will dictate how much they cost, and unlike precious metals, the prices are much more stable.

Finding A Jeweller

You can easily use the internet to search for bespoke jewellery in London, which will show you many jewellers that offer a custom design service. When you have all of your requirements together and know what you want, speak to as many reputable jewellers as possible, explain your needs, and ask them to quote accordingly. Make sure that you choose a trusted jeweller and you can check out their online reputation using the internet and find out what previous customers have to say about them. You can then go through your quotes and choose a reputable jeweller to create your custom piece.

Enjoy Your Jewellery

Whatever type of jewellery you have commissioned, once you decide on a jeweller and they start work on it, it will not be long until you get to wear it and show it off. It is ideal to create a practical piece of jewellery that can be work every day, to ensure that you get the maximum amount of use out of it. Take care of it and follow the jeweller's recommendations for the care and cleaning of it, and your bespoke jewellery will still be dazzling for many years to come.
