There is something very special about a gift that has been personalised and nothing is more so than giving the gift of personalised jewellery to someone you love.
Types of personalised jewellery really do vary. One of the most popular styles is dog tag style jewellery. Dog tags were first used in World War Two in order for soldiers to be identified. How they have come full circle to becoming a popular style of loved jewellery! One of the reasons for this is that they are simplistic in style and appeal to men and teenage boys but also to women who don´t like a lot of fuss when it comes to jewellery.Usually made from high quality sterling silver but seen more and more crafted from a material called PMC - Precious Metal Clay. This is a true eco friendly product used more and more for crafting high quality jewellery.PMC is an exciting material developed and patented in the 1990s by Mitsubishi Materials of Japan.It was a by product of photographic film but is now used by jewellery designers all over the world to offer unique, organic ,silver jewellery. Combined with the stylistic forms of a dog tag this works very well. Dog tags can then be hand stamped by the jewellery maker with names, dates and words that are sentimental and personalised and so will appeal to a wide market of people looking to give their loved ones a special memento or keepsake.
Using PMC has also become extremely popular for the design and craft of another type of personalised jewellery and it doesn´t come much more personalised than fingerprint jewellery! Fingerprints are captured in a specially designed kit and then the jewellery designer uses the fingerprint impression to create a piece of jewellery. Fingerprints can be captured from any age from 6 months onwards so cufflinks, pendants, rings, charm bracelets and key rings can all be given to keep baby close to your heart forever. Imagine when baby is all grown up and mum or dad still treasures the jewellery that has immortalised their little baby! Fingerprint jewellery is also perfect to give as a wedding gift. The bride and groom can have fingerprints captured and made into cufflinks for the groom to wear on the big day. Make them even more symbolic by having the wedding date engraved on them.
Charms have always been popular in all jewellery trends and indeed their popularity never seems to wane but have you thought of buying a loved one a personalised charm necklace? Gorgeous hallmarked silver tags, textured hearts and pebble charms, hearts of gold tags and semi precious birthstones all collected together on lovely necklace chains.Customised with names, dates, words or messages making a truly unique and individual piece of jewellery that will make it´s mark forever with the gift recipient. A heirloom in the making, possibly.
