Few items hold as much meaning as jewelry. From wedding bands to confirmation necklaces, jewelry marks the most important times in our lives. One way to make these precious pieces even more special is by personalizing them.
Personalized jewelry can be a reminder of a loved one, a unique moment in time, or a token of remembrance. The right jewelry can be a symbol of your family or a relationship. Jewelry creates a powerful bond between people.
The History of Personalized Jewelry
The ritual of engraving jewelry dates back to the early Egyptians and Romans, where cameos were hand-carved of important rulers and other leading figures into gemstones. As early as the 5th century BC, family seals were often engraved into the jewelry of the wealthy. In later centuries, family crests were carved into armor and shields.
During medieval times, lovers gave each other posey rings that were kin to modern engagement rings. These rings had poems or words on them and were believed to be magical. Engraving eventually evolved into intricate details of swirls, crosses, vines and is still popular today.
Personalized Jewelry Has Come a Long Way
Today, personalization goes even further. You can create just about any kind of piece of personalized jewelry that you could come up with. You can choose to make personalized rings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, earrings, or other body jewelry. There are numerous materials to choose from, including precious metals such as gold, silver, or tungsten.
Gemstones can be added to most pieces of jewelry. You can choose your favorite gemstones or add more meaningful gemstones, such as the birthstones of your children or other family members.
Engraving jewelry is another form of personalization. Most jewelers offer engraving for a small fee or sometimes for free with the purchase. Or, you can personalize bracelets and necklaces with initials or names. These can be delicate or bold, and special trinkets can be added to make them even more personalized to the wearer.
With laser technology, it is even possible to have the sound waves of a loved one’s voice or a personalized heartbeat engraved into a precious piece. This abstract design is a perfect way to remember a loved one forever.
Personalized jewelry can be given for birthdays, anniversaries, or just because. Personalized jewelry is special for the person that wears it and the person that gives it. It can be passed down to children and grandchildren, letting the memory that the piece holds live on forever.
