As someone that loves jewelry, I know there are many different places that you can find pieces that you will love. If you are quite keen in wearing unique and statement pieces of jewelry, then there are lots of ways to go about it too. They are a little more fun to create or shop for. They are so different to what anyone else has out on the market. They could even become an heirloom type of piece if they are completely unique. Quite often they will mean more to you in this way, then just a generic mass produced piece. So what are the best ways to get some one of a kind pieces of jewelry? Here are a few tips for you.
Create Your Own
One way to make sure you have a completely unique piece is to create your own. Obviously, that is something that I don’t shy away from! From the design to the actual creation, you are in charge of it all. It can be a complete one of a kind and designed just how you want it. There are kits and things that you can buy to help you. Or you could take a few different materials and just bend and twist until you have something that you want. It is one of the best ways to get a completely unique piece. If you get good at it, you could even give the pieces as gifts; making them just as your recipient would like. Then who knows, you might make a business out of it?
Have Them Made
If you aren’t the most creative person in the world, then you might prefer that someone else made the piece for you. There are many designers online or from stores, that would be able to create a piece for you. You might pay a little more for the privilege, though. There are other ways to have pieces created, though. Somewhere like DNA2Diamonds is a website that you could look at. Places like this create a diamond using the carbon from hair or ashes of a loved one or pet. How about that for a truly unique piece that could become an heirloom?
Shop in Vintage Stores and Markets
Vintage stores and markets can be quite rare to come across. It depends on where you live as to where you will find them. But when you spot one, make sure you have a look. You can find some rare and vintage pieces; that could even be worth quite a lot of money. So it is a good idea to take some time to look through. The good thing about these kind of places is that you can haggle most of the time. So you can get some bargains. Check out fairs and second-hand sales too. They are all good places to find some unique pieces of jewelry.
