Truly Yours: Three Ways To Incorporate Your Style Into A Bespoke Piece

Creating a bespoke piece of jewellery enables you to express your personality and style in a unique and eye-catching way. When customers come into the boutique to design a piece, I’m instantly inspired by their character and make it my goal to create a piece that is uniquely them and one that they will cherish forever.

There are three easy ways to ensure you incorporate your personal style into a bespoke piece: identify a coloured (or colourless) stone, a shape of a stone and a design style that speaks to who you are.

Select A Coloured Stone You Love

If you weren’t after a white diamond, colour is an emotional and extremely personal preference. There will always be certain colours that will make you feel secure and happy and by using these colours or tones in a bespoke piece you can ensure that you’ll treasure your personalised creation for years to come.

I often find that a woman’s preference for a stone can stem from what her mother or grandmother wore. You’ll be drawn toward similar pieces to what your mother wore because they spark that sentimental feeling that jewellery should produce for you.

You can also look to your clothing to get a feeling for what colours you love. Certain colours and tones will stand out in your collection and help you identify what gems you should use.

Select A Shape Of Stone You Love

Like colours, you’ll tend to be drawn toward shapes that are prevalent in your home. Maybe rounded stones offer inspiration; maybe it’s geometric shapes or angular pieces? Remember that whilst bigger is sometimes better, toning it down will help make the piece a more timeless representation of your style.

Select A Design Style You Love

If you’re confident and outgoing and want to make a statement with your jewellery, you could select a bold design, or colour for your bespoke piece. If you’re more conservative and want an understated piece that you can wear every day, you may opt for a classic and sleek design.

Engraving something personal or setting a secret stone within the piece is a thoughtful and sentimental way to include unique elements in a more minimal design while maintaining a clean aesthetic. You’ll know what design styles you are drawn to because your personal style is usually consistent and your preferences usually flow through everyday aspects of your life. Your coffee table, couch and other home décor items will be especially helpful in defining your style. Ask yourself; do you lean toward clean lines and contemporary design, or vintage and antique pieces?

I love working with customers to find the perfect balance between colour, shape and style to create a piece wholly reflective of their personality. I like to start with big ideas and then peel them back so the end result is very simple, stylish and timeless and one that captures your truest essence. Before you design your perfect bespoke piece, I suggest you take some time to think about what makes you uniquely you.

The most important aspect of bespoke jewellery is that it speaks to you on a personal level and becomes something you treasure for a lifetime.
