Valentine's Day : How to have a custom jewelry made
Valentine's Day, also known as Lovers' Day, is just around the corner! And this year, you want to offer an original and personal gift to your partner. The idea of a bespoke jewel seems to be ideal but you don't know how to go about it and you need advice.
In this article, we give you some ideas on how to choose the type of jewellery and the workshop that will deliver this fabulous piece.
First step : Choosing the jewel that's guaranteed to please
A unique jewel, yes ! But which style ?
You may have already spotted a piece of jewellery that inspires you or you may have an idea in mind of what you want. In that case, a jewellery workshop will be delighted to bring your idea to life. And if you don't have a precise idea of the jewel you want to offer, they will help you create THE piece that will perfectly match your sweetheart.
To start, you will need to go and look for information. Observe your wife and don't hesitate to have a look in her jewellery box to see what's hidden there and thus direct you towards a piece she will wear for sure.
Another original idea, challenge her without telling her what it is about! Give her a foretaste of this special day by preparing a little game in the Chinese portrait style. Take a pretty piece of paper and write a title on it, such as "A little game for a special project", and then questions such as :
- If you were a colour, which one would you be?
- If you were a jewel, which one would you be?
- If you were a garment, which would you be ?
- If you were a precious stone, which one would you be ?
- If you were a plant, which one would you be?
- If you were an emotion, which one would you be ?
And how to choose the gemstone that will adorn this unique pice of jewellery ?
Choosing the gemstone or fine stone that will adorn the jewel is not easy. Indeed, it depends on several factors such as :
- The tastes of the person to whom it is offered,
- The budget you wish to set,
- And the characteristics of the stone.
If Madam has well played your little game , you should normally know which stone has made her dream more than another. But if you haven't been able to find the answer to your question, there are several ways to select the gem that will make her vibrate.
A gemstone can be chosen according to the month of birth, since each stone corresponds to a specific month, or according to its symbolism (passion, union, purity...). It can also be selected according to its physical characteristics and origins: its colour, size, luminosity, clarity and authenticity.
Second step : Finding a jeweller's workshop that is up to scratch
