Custom vs. Mass-Produced: What’s the Difference?
Jewelry can be one of the most loving and meaningful gifts to give to a loved one to mark a milestone, occasion, special event or engagement. The type of jewelry matters just as much. By bypassing mass-produced jewelry, for a customized and unique piece, you are truly making a statement to your loved one.
Taking on the Trends
Sure, we all want to be trendy and of-the-moment with our homes, clothes, style and more, but we should move past trends when we are selecting jewelry. Mass-produced pieces embrace the trends as manufacturers are making many, many pieces at one time in the designs that will sell the best. This means that mass-produced bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings are worn by the masses. You can expect to see others wearing the same jewelry as it is the current look that is popular. While this may work for some instances and days, a special event needs to have a customized piece. Your custom jewelry is designed, created and crafted just for you and your gift recipient. You will surely dazzle with a piece that is not just showcasing the trends of today. A one-of-a-kind item will stand the test of time and shine for years and years as an heirloom piece.
An Original that Fits
When you buy mass-produced, it is not sized just for you as it goes by a general guide that is meant to fit anyone and everyone. When our team at Brad’s Designs & Jewelry creates your jewelry, it can be sized just for you or your loved one. These custom details you will not get with a mass-produced item. There is also originality that is specific to a custom item. Our team will take your ideas and bring them to life. If you have older jewelry, it can be transformed into something new that is a blend of your past and future. Repurposing old gold into something that you will love is another wonderful option to customize a new item. The attention to detail will shine through on a unique piece. Our team does many steps of our design process by hand. This is something you cannot get with a mass-produced item.
Our Team Will Tell Your Tale
Our jewelry designers will begin your custom gift with a conversation to uncover why you are purchasing your gift and who it is being given to or if it is for you, the why behind the idea. Our step-by-step process takes you through until the end when you will walk out with a unique jewelry piece that will sparkle for years. We will help you combine value with a design and selection that will be the unique present that you are seeking in a world of mass-produced trendy pieces.
