Choosing the Right Gemstone for Your Jewelry Gift
Anytime you give jewelry as a gift, you can expect smiles and hugs for sure! If you are hoping to not only create a custom piece, but also put some real thought into your stone selection, check out some of our ideas as a way to inspire your next gift.
Sparkle matches everything: Diamonds are always a top choice that will surely cause squeals of happiness to whoever receives your gift. These white and clear stones are set off by their consistent shine, sparkle and ability to match anything in your loved one’s wardrobe. Diamonds are always a classic option that will be a great selection for your jewelry’s stone.
A favorite color: If you are hoping to go beyond just sparkle and want some color, blue can be a fabulous choice and it continues to be a favorite color for precious stones. Lighter colors as seen in topaz and aquamarine can offer a subtle touch of color that will be a complement to any of your settings, whether it is in a ring, bracelet or necklace.
Feminine touch: If you are hoping to add a touch of femininity, we suggest purple stones over pink selections. Your younger family members will cherish a piece of jewelry that shines with the power of purple. Amethyst is a great way to add the punch of color to any type of jewelry.
Dark and light: When you want to bring a sense of sophistication to your earrings, necklace, ring or bracelet, then you can opt for a more matte stone. Two great choices that are on the opposite sides of the color spectrum are pearls and blank onyx. Both add a unique sense of style that any loved one will love.
Custom is The Best Way to Celebrate
At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, we have decades of hands-on experience creating custom jewelry that has brought joy to countless community members in our region. We strive to make the process painless and personal as we will guide you the whole way. We begin with a consultation to learn more about you and what you are celebrating. We will sketch out any design and work with you directly to bring your own personal gift to life with our innovation and craftsmanship. We can help you decide on material and stone selection if you are on the fence on any decisions. You will see your sketch come to life through a wax carving all before we fabricate your piece and put in your stones by hand. Your piece will tell your story.
As time goes by, we are ready to keep your jewelry maintained and clean through our additional services. If something happens or issues pop up, bring your jewelry to us for an inspection and repair services.
