Custom Designs: 7 Reasons It Could Be Right for You

Custom designs allow you to create a unique piece of custom jewellery you’ll cherish for years to come. 

Seven Reasons Custom Jewellery Could Be Right For You

1. Custom Designs Help You Create Exactly What You Want

Have you always dreamed of a particular design, but you can’t seem to find jewellery that fits your ideal? Maybe you’ve found a gemstone you adore but can’t find a setting to fit the gem because of its unique shape. That’s where custom designs come in.


With custom designs, you’re involved in creating your jewellery from beginning to end. You get to choose every detail and the custom design process which helps you create exactly what you want. 


Our Bespoke by ADX custom design service can help you bring your dream jewellery to life. If you love a particular style but don’t see it in our house collection, or want a combination of two different rings made into one ring, talk to us about a custom design.


Generally there’s three steps for creating a custom jewellery piece:

  1. Approve the estimated cost/quote
  2. Finalize the design through 3D CAD designs and/or sketches
  3. Fabricate your custom jewellery

Before fabricating your custom piece, we will show you 3D CAD designs and/or sketches to ensure it’s exactly what you envisioned. 

2. You Can Transform Family Heirlooms with Custom Designs

It’s common to inherit heirloom jewellery that has sentimental value but doesn’t fit your style. You shouldn’t feel bad if you don’t really want to wear your grandmother’s bracelet yet can’t bear to part with it, either. Instead, consider transforming your family heirlooms with a custom design.


Custom designs allow you to place stones from heirloom jewellery into a new piece with a style you love. You can keep your cherished heirlooms and feel wonderful wearing them. 


Sometimes, heirloom pieces also become broken or chipped over time. In that case, custom designs can help you preserve elements from your heirloom jewellery and give them new life. Plus, we will buy back the remainder of the gold and diamonds that were not used in the design process and that amount can be credited towards your custom design. 

3. Custom Designs Give You a Completely Unique Piece

Who doesn’t like the idea of being the only one to have a gorgeous piece of jewellery? It’s always fun to have something unique. After all, with custom designs, you never have to worry about showing up to an event wearing the same jewellery as someone else.


Custom designs are also a wonderful way to show off your unique style and personality. Since you choose every element of the design, your personality really shines through. 


No one in the world is exactly like you. Thanks to custom designs, no one in the world will have a piece exactly like yours.

4. Custom Designs Allow You to Personalize Your Jewellery

Adding a personal touch to your jewellery always makes it more special. Custom designs allow you to do exactly that.


Engrave a sweet message on the inside of your rings or add a sentimental note to the back of your husband’s watch. There’s something incredibly endearing about having a secret message meant only for you.


Alternatively, choose meaningful stones, designs, or initials to personalize your jewellery. Anything that makes your jewellery personal to you or a loved one helps you create a cherished piece. 

5. Custom Designs Make Custom Jewellery a Meaningful Gift

If you’re searching for a meaningful gift for your loved one, custom designs are an excellent choice. They’re a perfect way to show your love.


As part of the design process, you can incorporate stones, metals, symbols, or messages that are meaningful to your loved one. The recipient of your gift is sure to appreciate the thought you put into it.


Indeed, the time and effort you put into creating custom designs makes custom jewellery a highly personal gift. As a result, you can be certain the custom designs you create will be cherished for years to come.

6. You’re Happy to Wait for the Perfect Custom Designs

It’s important to remember that custom designs take time and shouldn’t be rushed. After all, you want your piece to be perfect!


Understanding how long the process takes to create custom designs is crucial. That way,  you have a realistic idea of when your piece will be ready.


Custom designs typically take 45 to 60 days to complete, but it’s worth the wait. Your patience is rewarded with the perfect custom design for you or your loved one.

7. You Want Flexibility in Pricing

Custom jewellery comes in a range of prices, depending on factors like the type of stone, metal, and settings you choose. Since you choose every element in your custom jewellery, you have more control over the final cost.


Don’t be deterred by the perception that custom designs are too expensive for you. In reality, there is a lot of flexibility in pricing. We can help you choose a design that fits both your style and your budget. 


At Alberta Diamond Exchange, we can buy old jewellery pieces you no longer wear and that amount can be credited towards your new design. Learn more about selling your jewellery with us.
