If you want to make a splash when you walk into a room then some bold and beautiful handmade jewellery is all you need. A timeless rose gold pendant necklace crafted with care by the hands of an artisanal jewellery designer can make just as much impact as your favourite outfit or a striking pair of boots.
Need more convincing? Then here are 6 reasons why handmade jewellery is fabulous and we just can’t get enough of it.
Handmade Jewellery Collections are Eclectic
The designers behind handmade jewellery take inspiration from all over the world, from different cultures, from history, the natural world and cutting edge modern-day architecture. This means that their collections will open your eyes to textures, symbols, motifs and materials that you didn’t even know existed. Wearing a new piece of jewellery will in turn inspire your mind to open even more deeply. If you’re ready to refresh your look with something utterly different, pay a visit to your local boutique and discover this season’s special offers on jewellery.
Artisans Breathe new life into Classic Pieces
As well as adding an eclectic touch, handmade jewellery designers also know how to master the classics that are the backbone of any accessories collection. If you want to invest in a quality pearl necklace or small stud earrings that clasp a precious gemstone then an artisan jewellery maker will ensure they are produced with style. You’ll also rest assured that they will last for years to come.
Handmade Jewellery Makes a Sustainable Statement
Handmade jewellery designers are committed to sustainable practices that ensure the safeguarding of the environment and vulnerable communities. Such boutiques will make every effort to reduce their carbon footprint and waste by recycling gemstones and limiting single use plastics. They will also pay a fair price to their suppliers to ensure an ethical supply chain. So you can wear that rose gold necklace chain with pride knowing that it won’t cost the earth and that it has supplied income to a local community. And isn’t that the best statement your choice in fashion can make?
Customised Pieces let your Personality Shine Through
One of the great things about handmade jewellery is that the boutiques and designers are always willing to go that extra mile to add customisation. This is perfect for you if you have something very specific in mind either for yourself or a loved one as a gift. You could embellish a rose gold pendant necklace with a gemstone of your choice or request an engraving to a cuff bracelet.
Communicate Everlasting Love
If you are thinking of popping the question then a handmade jewellery designer will always go that extra mile to help you find the perfect engagement ring. Particularly if you want to think outside the box and buy something rather than a classic diamond solitaire. As handmade jewellery is made using traditional techniques and precious materials, pieces offer more longevity than the equivalents from the high street. Which only bodes well for the future and strength of your relationship! If an engagement ring isn’t on the cards yet then a carefully chosen rose gold necklace chain with a special motif will still provide a splendid gift for your loved one.
Handmade Jewellery is one of a Kind
From a pair of small stud earrings to a chunky statement ring, every single piece of handmade jewellery is a unique piece. No mass machinery is involved and there are certainly no assembly lines. Designers pour their hearts and souls into their pieces and will never take shortcuts that jeopardise the integrity of their work. When browsing the collections, look closely and you will notice minor discrepancies between pieces that mark them as unique. This is of course standard when you choose natural gemstones which are also always one of a kind.
