Why Custom Jewelry

A piece of custom jewelry is far more than a commodity. Custom fine jewelry is an heirloom that doubles as an experience that helps you communicate your story, milestones, and celebrations.


Working with a skilled designer not only results in a beautiful work of art, but it also provides an opportunity to reflect on meaningful elements, aesthetics, and expressions that are unique to adornment.


Today, when we are experiencing #socialdistancing and quarantine as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we are in the perfect position to press pause and reflect on who we are, where we have been, and what we want to communicate through the items we wear. This is the moment to consider Custom Jewelry that fits and reflects YOU.

Below are 6 Benefits of Custom Jewelry


1) Tailored to YOU


When you work with an expert jeweler to create a unique item, you are in the drivers seat. Whatever your tastes or needs may be, a jeweler can work with you to create a personalized and exclusive piece of art.


Your needs are at the heart of every discussion and decision. Do you have a strict budget? Do you have an image in your head of a dream item? Do you have a unique color preference, symbol you want to integrate, or unique problem that needs to be solved by the jewelry?


Your innovative vision and desires come to life through the experienced jeweler who is working for and with you to make your dreams come true.

2) Value for Money


A custom design allows for the creation of a unique item that is catered to and maximizes your budget.

You will be working with an expert who can temper your options to your expressed budget. This means you don’t have to worry about hidden fees, up-sells, cross-sells, or various other techniques used to get more of your money—We work within your defined budget and tell you what can be expected upfront.


The money you spend is put to its best use with a custom design. Working with Original Eve Designs means that your money is not going to retail overhead. We operate a lean business and that means your dollars go directly towards the materials that compose your finished piece of jewelry.

3) Focus On Quality Not Quantity


Making a one-off design involves a level of care and focus that is sometimes missed with mass-produced jewelry. Each piece of custom jewelry is a unique work of art that receives the care and attention that is deserved of an heirloom quality item of jewelry you will wear daily.


A jeweler will spend days designing and perfecting your unique piece of jewelry. Every step of the creation process is closely monitored with the highest expectations for craftsmanship and attention to detail, resulting in a piece of jewelry that is worthy of your story.

4) Great Customer Service


At Original Eve, we believe transparency and trust are paramount. The jewelry industry has a terrible reputation for being shady and slimy. Through the process of creating a custom piece of jewelry, you will work alongside a skilled jeweler and will gain unique insight into the process and value of such detailed work.


We are here to answer any questions you have and are happy to share our expertise with you.

With years of experience as a jeweler after having received a Master’s in Fine Art in Jewelry and a Graduate Gemological degree, our founder, Eve Streicker, worked as an education specialist at Tiffany & Co., where she taught Tiffany employees about diamonds, gemstones, and jewelry craftsmanship. Eve is an encyclopedia of jewelry knowledge and will teach you about the design, manufacturing, and history of this unique world. Eve can answer any questions you have about jewelry and the creation process.


Spending time with each customer in order to create meaningful jewelry is an incredibly intimate experience. We cherish the opportunity to become a part of your story. In the end, you receive a beautiful work of art and a friend for life.

5) Creating an Emotional Connection


When it comes to customized jewelry, the value is even greater than the sum of its parts. The sentimental and emotional process of creating the jewelry creates emotional value that is hard to quantify.


A custom piece of jewelry is an excellent way to commemorate an important event or milestone. When creating something for a specific person, symbols of the relationship and milestone can be incorporated into the design resulting in jewelry that is unique to you and your story.


Starting with a complimentary consultation online, on the phone, or in person, we will discuss your hopes and wants. Elements of every relationship and story can be expressed through custom design. Together, we will discover elements that we can incorporate into the design, resulting in a piece of jewelry that is as unique as you.


You will have a part in shaping the design, selecting the gemstones used, and learning about the nuanced aesthetic elements that compose your piece. Your custom jewelry becomes an investment and story that can be passed through generations.

6) Lasts a Lifetime (and beyond)


The attention and meaning imbedded in every detail or your custom jewelry item will make your jewelry an heirloom your family will cherish for generations to come.


The jewelry you make with a custom jewelry designer results in an item that is full of symbols of your story. There is unrivaled thought and care put into every detail, not only in the selections you make, but also in the personalized oversight of an expert creating the jewelry and managing every step of the process.


The experience you had making the jewelry is something you will be excited to share with your loved ones. Your custom jewelry will be more than an item: Your custom jewelry is an experience, an expression, and an opportunity to connect with your story, your loved ones, and milestones in a tangible way.

In Conclusion


Being involved in the creation of a piece of fine jewelry will result in having an item that you will cherish, not only for what it represents, but also because you oversaw and fine-tuned every detail of its creation from the moment the idea was conceived. The piece will be unique to you, your life, your story. It will be the greatest value for your dollar as the focus of creation will be on the quality, experience, education, and service gained through true creative partnership with an expert and expressing your emotional reasons for having jewelry in the first place.


The jewelry you make through the custom jewelry process will not only be jewelry that you will love, but the attention and meaning embedded in every detail will make your jewelry item an heirloom your family will cherish for generations to come.
