Personalised jewellery – how to get things your way

For anyone looking for a gift with a difference, personalisation is the way forward. A personalised gift will always stand out from easily available mass-produced items, but where do you go when you want to have something created?

First, let’s look at the usual ways of personalising jewellery:

Initials – the classic way is the initials of the person the jewellery is intended for. Or their first name engraved in full.
Quotes – if there is a verse, a quote or a saying that is special to you or the person the jewellery is destined for, that would be ideal for an engraving.

A special date – the date you met, an anniversary or a birthday – could be etched into the metal.

Birthstones – Another way to personalise is the birthstone or a gem of the person’s favourite colour. For example, if you’re buying for someone with a fiery, passionate temperament, then a red stone might be a good choice. Someone with a calm, collected nature might prefer a relaxed colour such as blue.

Where to buy personalised jewellery

Personalised jewellery is easy to find from online retailers. However, if you want a one-of-a-kind piece and truly personal service seek out your nearest gemmologist.

An experienced gemmologist can create a piece of jewellery personalised down to the finest details – and it will be 100 per cent bespoke.

Also, you can explain exactly what you want in detail, enabling them to give you an expert opinion on whether the design is feasible – and you can agree on compromises if it’s not.


Personalised jewellery is a thoughtful gift and the extra effort that goes into choosing it is always appreciated by the recipient.

If you are looking for assistance in finding the perfect piece of personalised jewellery, then go no further than your local gemmologist. For expert advice, and a piece of jewellery that fulfils your wishes, contact Diamonds by Design today.
