Gift giving for someone special can be a daunting experience. It can be difficult to think of what will be the perfect gift, what will convey the desired meaning, and what will stand out among any other gift received. Whether the gift is for him or for her, it may be helpful to consult an expert for advice, ideas, and education regarding custom designer jewelry. It is not the only choice for a one-of-a-kind gift, but it is versatile, can suit any budget, and will last a lifetime. Options include necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, cuff links, keepsakes, and watches, among other options.

A necklace, for example, can be designed to reflect the personality of the recipient, signify a special event, commemorate a milestone birthday or anniversary, or add to a collection of favored items. The sister who collects turtles will be delighted to receive a custom designed tortoise with a mosaic shell hanging from a silver chain. The husband who enjoys Nascar racing can be presented with a tie tack that resembles his favorite car. The child graduating college would be thrilled to have a gold cap engraved with the date. The possibilities are only limited by the imagination. A naturalist will appreciate a braided leather band in favorite colors, or a wooden tree dangling from a jute rope.

A bracelet that contains the birthstones of children or grandchildren is a gift that will be cherished for years to come. It can even be passed down from generation to generation, much like a traditional signet is passed from father to son. Earrings in a favorite gemstone or color, rings that are unique, and engraved mirrors or cases also make special gifts.
