Shoes get worn down, purses get dirty and clothes go out of style in a hurry. For timeless personal style, jewelry is the way to go. Whether it’s one signature piece or a collection of pieces that just say “you,” unique handcrafted jewelry gives you a fashionable way of self-expression.
You could spend hundreds of dollars on a designer purse or a pair of designer shoes and by next season it’s already out of style. Or you could be walking down the street and see someone with the exact same thing. Spend the same money – or less – for unique handmade jewelry and it’ll last you a lifetime and never go out of style. Ever heard of an heirloom purse or pair of shoes? Probably not. It’s because clothing and accessories don’t have the staying power of jewelry.
When perusing the mall jewelry counters, it’s hard to find pieces that really stick out as different. They have to stock their stores with jewelry for the masses, with largely high volume commercial appeal. However, very often what you’re left with is generic designs. The jewelry might sparkle and shine under the bright lights, but what you find in the mall lacks the ‘Wow’ factor of unique handmade jewelry.
The customization options for unique handcrafted jewelry are endless
Unique handcrafted jewelry offers an array of styles you wouldn’t normally find in stores, allowing you to customize your look and have a distinctive fashion sense. The designs are generally more intricate than what you might find in the mall and the metal work goes beyond simple shapes that are easily mass-produced. You can usually tell handcrafted jewelry when you see it because it looks like it took more effort to make. It looks like it was made just for you.
The materials used in handcrafted jewelry are also hard to find in your local mall. If were simply looking for diamonds, emeralds, blue sapphires or rubies then you could easily get that. But walk in and ask for Paraiba tourmaline or smoky quartz or lapis and you’re likely to walk out empty handed. You could end up falling for pieces with materials you’ve never even heard of.
It’s the unique designs and materials that make handmade jewelry worth the investment. Step out in some handcrafted jewelry and friends, co-workers and strangers will be dying to know where you got it. You could be looking for something ultra-feminine, something Goth-inspired or something just totally off the wall… and handcrafted jewelry will probably have the answer to what you want in something daring and different.
