Top-Tier Ideas for Creating a Custom Jewelry Gift, Rochester, New York

While it’s easy to buy gift cards or bottles of wine for new acquaintances and distant relatives, finding a gift for someone you’re close to is stressful. On the one hand, you want to buy something you know they’ll love, but you don’t want it to be generic or impersonal. In this case, you can’t go wrong with custom jewelry. The following personalization options are sure to be a hit with your special someone!

3 Ways to Personalize Custom Jewelry

1. Monogram

Regardless of the age or gender of the recipient, a monogram turns any item into a cherished keepsake. By arranging the first, middle, and last initials of their name, you can create their own one-of-a-kind logo. While monograms are being used on everything from tote bags to tumblers, they make for a classic gesture on various custom jewelry pieces. Try engraving your loved one’s monogram on cuff links, a locket, or a signet ring for a gift they’ll treasure forever.

2. Birthstone

You can also purchase a personalized gift without the use of lettering; instead, make a symbolic gesture by choosing a piece that includes the recipient’s birthstone. For example, a woman with a July birthday might love a ruby pendant, while someone with a December birthday could sport a blue topaz ring. This eliminates the turnaround time and extra charge of engraving but still adds a personal touch.

3. Engraved Message

Draft a personalized message to your special someone and have it engraved on a piece of custom jewelry. Whether it’s a term of endearment, an inside joke, a holiday-specific phrase, or a simple “I’ll love you forever,” you can dress up the back of a watch, a pendant, or the inside of a ring with your inscription.
