Bespoke jewellery is a unique and meaningful way to express your personality and create lasting memories. However, some misconceptions have led people to shy away from exploring this artistic avenue. Today, let’s debunk some common myths surrounding custom jewellery:
Myth #1: Custom-Made Jewellery is Unaffordable
Fact: Custom jewellery can cater to various budgets. While bespoke pieces can be pricey due to craftsmanship, you have control over design elements, materials, and gemstones, allowing you to create a piece within your means.
Myth #2: Bespoke Jewellery Takes Too Long to Create
Fact: While it’s true that custom pieces take longer than off-the-shelf options, the timeline varies depending on the design’s complexity and the jeweller’s schedule. Many jewellers can deliver bespoke pieces within 4-6 weeks, and the wait is often worth it for a one-of-a-kind treasure.
Myth #3: You Need to be a Jewellery Expert to Commission a Custom Piece
Fact: Custom jewellery designers are there to guide you through the process. You don’t need to know everything about gemstones or metals; simply share your ideas and preferences, and your jeweller will help bring your vision to life.
Myth #4: Custom-Made Jewellery is Risky Because You Can’t See the Final Product Beforehand
Fact: With the normalisation of virtual meetings via tools like Zoom, the need for face-to-face discussions have become less essential, and much more convenient for fitting into our busy schedules. Reputable jewellers will provide sketches or digital renderings of the design and may offer wax or 3D printed models for you to examine. This way, you can make adjustments and approve the design before it’s crafted.
Myth #5: Custom Pieces Lack the Quality of Store-Bought Jewellery
Fact: Despite the claims of large high street jewellery stores’ marketing campaigns, bespoke jewellery often exceeds the quality of mass-produced pieces. Skilled artisans take pride in their work and pay close attention to detail, ensuring your bespoke creation is made to the highest standard.
