1. Personalised jewellery tells a story
Whether you are choosing a unique map to draw on a pendant or simply deciding what to engrave on the inside of a ring, each piece of custom jewellery tells a story that is unique to you and the person you are giving the jewellery to.
By gifting a piece of jewellery that signifies a story, you start writing a new one by creating a custom piece. We all remember meaningful jewellery that is given to us at significant times.
The story might be about where you grew up, a special occasion or a quote that is special to the two of you. Carve out the story permanently onto a piece of jewellery so it stays close to their heart forever.
2. Personalised jewellery can be made into an heirloom
Custom jewellery is totally unique and meaningful to an individual, making it heirloom worthy. This is an amazing reason to give personalised jewellery as a gift, because it may stay in their family for generations to come.
For custom map jewellery or co-ordinate jewellery this is especially true if you decide to have a special place to the family engraved such as the location of the family home or a favourite holiday destination.
Intergenerational jewellery carries so much meaning and significance to those who receive it after a loved one passes. You cannot put a price on it, it is priceless!
3. Personalised jewellery is an amazing surprise
Jewellery is always a welcome gift for both men and women and is often quite rare due to its value. Therefore, giving the gift of customised jewellery is an excellent surprise when you really want to show someone how much they mean to you.
There aren't many things as special as receiving a piece of custom jewellery.
4. People don't buy personalised jewellery for themselves
A signifier of a great gift is a gift that someone would never buy for themselves. Custom jewellery definitely falls into this category! Not many people would think to purchase a piece of personalised jewellery for themselves, unlike clothes, electronics and other essentials.
You also have zero chance of giving them something they already have when you create a custom piece for them!

5. Custom jewellery is timeless
Personalised jewellery makes a big impression, that lasts. If you think about the gifts you have now that you still use and cherish, jewellery is probably one of them (especially solid gold and silver pieces).
Quality jewellery never goes out of style and when taken care of properly it will last for lifetimes. When you add in a personalised element it becomes even more timeless for the person who receives it as a gift.
6. Chances are they will love it
It can be extremely difficult to buy gifts for others. It's hard to know if they will like what you give them or even use it. With personalised jewellery, a lot of thought about the other person goes into it. Anyone who receives a quality piece of custom jewellery is going to be over the moon.
There are endless options for customisation of jewellery for men and women these days, you can't go wrong. You can even opt for something a bit different like a keyring.
7. Personalised jewellery is truly thoughtful
When we buy gifts for others, we want them to be thoughtful and meaningful to the person. Creating a personalised piece of jewellery is the perfect way to show someone you really thought about them when purchasing their gift. You're not just purchasing something fancy or expensive to simply impress them. When you give a piece of custom jewellery, you have to put in more time, energy, and effort and really think about the person you are giving it to. It holds much more value than the price you paid for it. This is a beautiful way to show someone that you care about them and value your relationship.
8. Personalised jewellery is one of a kind
Whether you are having coordinates engraved on a necklace, initials on a signet ring or just a loving message on the back of a pendant, every piece of custom jewellery is perfectly unique. There is no one else in the world that will have the exact same piece, making it extra meaningful and special.
9. Customised jewellery is memorable
If you give someone a beautiful custom piece of jewellery, they will remember the moment forever. This is a wonderful way to create special memories and give a gift that will never be forgotten and abandoned in the back of a drawer!
10. Personalised jewellery will strengthen your relationship
One of the best reasons to give custom jewellery is that it is a gift that will strengthen your bond with someone. Not only are you showing them that you care deeply about them, but it allows you to connect and reminisce on how special your bond is. This is a way to show them that no matter what they are special to you. It signifies longevity and permanence of the relationship whether they are a spouse, a family member or a friend. It can serve as a special reminder of times and places you have shared with them in the past so that it can be carried forward into the future.
11. Personalised jewellery is easily identifiable
Another different reason to give personalised jewellery is that in case they lose it or misplace it, it is easily identifiable. This increases the chances of it being found and returned to the rightful owner.
