Creating Personalised Jewellery With Meaning

Creating personalised jewellery is the perfect way to give a meaningful gift to someone special! Whether it’s an anniversary, graduation, birthday, milestone  – or any other special event – these three techniques will help you get it just right!

Symbolism

Symbolism can be a unique and powerful way to add meaning to jewellery! It allows you to communicate something that has meaning for you and the person you are creating the piece for – a thoughtful and unique connection!

Daniel had this ‘peas in a pod’ brooch custom-made of silver and pearls. He presented it to Rebecca to celebrate their 10 years of marriage together. The three pearls represent their three children and while the pod-form suggests the closeness and intimacy of their relationship.

The concept behind our ‘Woven’ collection explores the way we become entwined with someone during a particular period of our life. The pieces in this series feature a fluid, enhanced loop that represents the point when paths cross and become ‘woven’ together.

This sterling silver pendant features the Roman numerals XXX. The characters form a beautifully sculptured piece that is both subtle and symbolic of a 30 year wedding anniversary.

Date Jewellery

Commemorate an important date with a personalised jewellery piece! This technique is a great way to create meaningful jewellery for milestone occasions such as birthdays, weddings, graduations or other significant achievements that are worth celebrating!

To create these ‘Milestone’ earrings, we reused the material from a diamond ring that our client had and sourced a second diamond to match the first. The earrings feature a custom date to celebrate her completion of a Masters degree.

This ‘Momento’ ring was a special gift from a father to his daughter. Her birth date is included in Roman numerals on the outside edge of the ring. Since her birthday is in May, the ring is adorned by some lovely brilliant-cut emeralds. How thoughtful!

Name Jewellery

There are lots of ways to add the names of loved ones to personalised jewellery pieces! For example, you could consider adding hidden engraving, geometric arrangements of letters, bold initials or embossed lettering to give your jewellery that personal touch!
