AMT Jewelry is excited to share our Summer blog that shows you how to create one-of-a kind custom jewelry for your ‘special day.’ Learn more about the do’s and don’ts when it comes to designing your own wedding jewelry …
Summer is synonymous with ‘wedding season’ – what a wonderful season indeed! As a jewelry designer, weddings offer a unique chance to create something beautiful to commemorate the occasion, but also something timeless – a ‘forever’ token – echoing the vows a couple make.
Jewelry plays such an integral role during the stages of a couple’s commitment from the engagement ring to the wedding bands. As jewelry is a focal part of the ceremony, it’s only natural that more and more couples are turning to custom jewelry: they yearn for something original that also reflects their personal style. Another trend is updating, or re-inventing family heirlooms. This is becoming popular because it’s a way for a couple to carry on the family tradition with a ‘new look’ in a budget-conscious fashion.
The Magic of Custom Jewelry
As a recent bride myself, I can relate: designing my own wedding jewelry was a magical experience that I will never forget. I created my own wedding band; melding the desire for a band I feel comfortable traveling the world with, while also standing gracefully on its own. As you can see from the photo, it features oval-shaped diamonds set from east-to-west to match my center, engagement ring-stone, but it’s set in 18-karat gold. I simply love the richness and heft of platinum contrasting with gold.
From my own personal experience, I can tell you how essential it is that the piece reflects the spirit of the couple, as it’s a symbol of their union and is something they wear post-wedding. So if there was one key takeaway – it’s to make sure your jewelry is beautiful but wearable – I love the fact that my bridal jewelry is à propos in a dressed-up or dressed-down setting.
Our Philosophy & Artisanal Approach
It’s an honor for me to be part of a couple’s wedding journey, so it’s my hope and assurance that every piece of jewelry embodies a couple’s vision, aspiration and personal style. As such, I am hands-on throughout the process overseeing each piece from start-to-finish. Using only the best quality-sourced materials with an artisanal approach, my philosophy simply put is: I want each piece to be something that I would be proud to wear myself.
And with Summer in full-swing, I hope this radiant season encourages you to consider creating your own custom jewelry for your ‘special day.’
Happy Wedding Season!
