Recently I have noticed a trend for customers wishing to design new pieces of jewellery for special occasions such as wedding anniversaries or significant birthdays, which are inspired by their wedding and engagement rings.
Using your engagement ring as inspiration can produce some really interesting designs with unusual shapes and abstract forms. From a practical point of view it also works well because it means that the metal and stones complement those of the existing rings without clashing.
A good example is Caroline and Steve’s bespoke yellow gold and citrine pendant, which was designed in a twisting shape to match Caroline’s engagement ring
Over the years these special pieces of jewellery mark important occasions and begin to form a set. This is excellent because it means that you get to build up a full suite of jewellery gradually over time in your very own signature style. Bespoke jewellery design is perfect for this, you don’t have to worry about trying to match something “off the shelf” with your existing jewellery, the design and the stones can be chosen to perfectly complement what you already have.
For example, this pair of bespoke earrings were designed to match a pendant Helen already had. They complement her much loved heirloom beautifully.
