Everyone wants their jewelry to mean and say something. Personalizing jewelry is taking it up a notch. One of the hottest trends these days is personalized jewelry. Those who wear it can show their love and affection to their husbands and wives, children, even pets through the jewelry that they wear. When buying authentic jewelry such as diamonds, you must be aware of the 4 Cs. The cut, color, carat, and clarity. When purchasing jewelry online, you have to make sure that the store has a money back policy to protect you against fake pieces. If the store does not allow returns, it is a red flag that there may be issues with their items. Here are some ideas on how you can wear – or give – personalized jewelry.
Charm bracelets are a good way of personalizing your jewelry. Each charm may symbolize something of importance to you; landmarks or places you visited, your pets, your favorite animals, your initials, anything really! Add a charm once in a while and see how many charms your bracelet can hold.
Initial and name necklaces and bracelets
Bracelets and necklaces with your initials or your name cannot get any more personal than that. You may want to consider platinum, silver or gold for the initials and the strand. Invest in a good necklace or jewelry, and you can wear it for many years to come without tarnishing.
A locket necklace can hold so many memories for the wearer. Place a photo of your favorite person so you can hold them close to your heart, literally. There are a variety of locket designs you can choose from, as well as the chains that will hold them. Choose the right length, so it’s not too long and not too short. The pendant should sit just below your collarbone.
A birthstone ring is a sight to behold. Give one to someone you love or get one for yourself and watch heads turn when people see it. It is perfect for a variety of outfit choices and occasions.
You can wear a brooch for both casual and formal wear. A brooch made of diamonds will make any outfit pop. You can also wear it in different ways: on your chest, by your shoulder and you can also use it to hold down a thin scarf in place. If diamonds are a little out of your budget range, there is a cheaper alternative: cubic zirconia. They are not as pricey as diamonds, but they look elegant just the same.
Now that the preliminaries are out of the way, it is time to go shopping for personalized jewelry! If shopping for yourself, think about what you want your jewelry to look like, based on your preference and the meaning you want to put behind the jewelry. If shopping for others, learn about their likes, their personality, and you will get great ideas on what to give them.
