The Rise and Rise of Bespoke Jewellery


If years were to be defined by jewellery trends, then 2018 would be the year of bespoke jewellery. So far this year, we have seen more and more commissions for bespoke jewellery and it’s a trend which people really seem to be embracing. Lovers of bespoke jewellery Loughton and Hainault wide have been enjoying the freedom and unique nature of bespoke jewellery this summer, and the trend doesn’t seem to be stopping!

But why is bespoke jewellery so popular? And why is it particularly popular at the moment? Here are just a few reasons why 2018 is the year of the rise and rise of bespoke jewellery:

1.  People want Unique

This has always been, and will always be, the biggest reason why our customers choose a bespoke piece of jewellery. They want something which is different, or they can’t quite find what they’re looking for in the shops. Having something created which is completely bespoke to you guarantees that you’ll not only get the exact design that you’re after, but no one else will have the same piece.

2.  More Trust in Artisan Crafters

Whereas the big chains once ruled the roost, there is more and more focus and trust being placed in smaller, independent shops nowadays.

And with good reason, of course: when it comes to bespoke jewellery, Loughton based customers know that they can trust E.K. Jewellers to carry out our bespoke commissions on the premises (no risk of stones or heirloom pieces, if we’ve been entrusted with remodelling one, being lost in transit!) and to have plenty of time to listen to our customers and consult with them on the design. Oh and we also have over 36 years’ worth of experience, too!

3.  Sentimentality

There seems to be a bigger emphasis at the moment on sentimentality. Of course, this should always be the case when purchasing jewellery as a gift, but bespoke jewellery goes above and beyond the sentiment behind a ready-made piece.

For special occasions such as an engagement, wedding, a present to celebrate a child’s birth or a big birthday, there is nothing more sentimental than a bespoke piece of jewellery.

4.  Value for Money

When weighing up all of the reasons to commission a bespoke piece of jewellery, it suddenly becomes apparent what good value for money bespoke jewellery is. After all, it’s worth paying the extra to know that no one else will have the same piece as you, and you’ve put extra thought and sentiment into the piece.

So why not think about commissioning a piece of bespoke jewellery? Loughton based customers can easily visit E.K. Jewellers – just a short journey away from Loughton – to get involved in the bespoke jewellery trend.
