Looped and Stacked Rings

Looped rings for women are the latest craze to hit the fashion scene. They come in a wide range of designs, but the defining feature is a sizeable eye-catching opening or gap in the loop earring. This design allows for some unique and stylish pieces customised to your personal taste. These bespoke rings would be a great addition to your fine jewellery collection, from floating gemstones to overlapping loops. Stacked rings have come into focus again with a modern and classy look.

The beauty of stacked rings is the freedom to create a layout that best appeals to you. For a more contemporary look, try combining different metals – like rose gold and silver - to give it an element of individuality. The key is to create a unified look – allowing the stack to look like a set.

Silver makes a comeback and mixed metals too

Gold has always been the preferred metal when choosing and creating custom made jewellery. It is a soft, malleable metal that works exceptionally well with all gemstones and diamonds. However, silver offers a sparkle to the ring. White gold has also become a popular metal due to its incredible versatility in fine jewellery. The metallic colour provides a clean, elegant look and pairs exceptionally well with all gemstones. And it offers the opportunity to produce a unique piece of fine jewellery that highlights your personal preferences.

The combination of rose gold and silver or white gold has a stylish modern look that should become a staple in every woman’s jewellery box. The contrasting warm rose gold and lustrous white gold create the perfect balance – making it an excellent choice for an engagement or wedding ring.

Layering on the personality

Layered jewellery is an excellent way to create a stylish appearance that is a true reflection of your personal style. Layering necklaces allow you to combine several simple, delicate pieces to achieve a look of sophistication and elegance. Mixing metals and combining them with various coloured gemstones is a great idea to create a distinct and unique look. Unique gemstone pendants are making a major comeback this year. A minimalist design gives it an elegant, stylish appeal that will complement any necklace. We feature quite a few pendants on our online store, such as the gold and black onyx pendant.

Another top pick is our tanzanite diamond pendant which comes in white gold or rose gold. They are equally stylish and make an excellent pick for a custom-designed pendant.

Royal Inspiration

Royal jewellery has always been beautiful and elaborately designed to communicate a person’s royal status. They are a symbol of class, power, and status. They are often intricately designed works of art adorned with various precious gemstones. These exquisite bespoke jewellery pieces have long been a source of inspiration for enchanting tiaras and women’s engagement rings. Crown rings are somewhat unconventional but beautifully crafted. They have a royal, almost majestic look to them and would make an exceptional addition to your jewellery assemblage.

Our engagement ring collection features multiple rings that are fit for royalty, and the range is quite extensive. Hop over to our online store to check out the entire collection.

Elegance in the shape of a Pear

The pear-shaped cut is a cross between the marquise and oval cuts. It resembles a teardrop and is revered for its ability to showcase a stone’s colour and brilliance. While not the most common choice, the pear-shaped cut has gained popularity in recent years and has become more prevalent in engagement rings and pendants alike. The non-traditional shape is eye-catching and will offer a truly unique piece to add to your bespoke jewellery collection.

Vibrant coloured gemstones:

Vibrant coloured gemstones are taking centre stage and have proven to be an excellent choice for custom made jewellery. The possibilities are limitless with gems from captivating engagement rings to an elegant, awe-inspiring pendant and necklace. With such a vast selection of gemstones available, choosing the perfect colour that suits you has never been easier. Birthstones have gained popularity for their vivid colours and reasonable price tag – making them an exceptional centrepiece for your next piece of fine jewellery.

Gradient gemstones:

Gradient gemstone designs have revolutionised bespoke jewellery. There are two types of gradation. The first is a single colour gradation where the gemstones are the same colour but seamlessly decrease in saturation from one gem to the next. The second variety is a stone that beautifully transitions from one colour to another when put into direct light. The gradient design has loads of appeal and adds a unique, stylish element to your look.

Investing in Custom Made Jewellery

2022 is proving to be a fantastic year filled with many opportunities to define your style and enhance your look. Opting for a custom made piece of jewellery is a great choice to ensure that it meets your expectations and has more sentimental value. Current trends indicate a bright, colourful year ahead with vibrant gemstones and multi-coloured jewellery. An elegant pair of earrings would significantly augment your look too.
