If you are looking for an original or unique piece of jewellery that you are going to give to your wife, I think the best option would be to use the advice and skills of a handmade jeweller.
When a handmade jeweller creates their jewellery, it is not at all like the standard procedure where machines do the cutting and the finishing. He uses his imagination and has a complete dedication and love for the work that brings out beautiful and original designs. The quality of their work is where the value lies.
Within the jewellery industry, there has been a move towards more machine-made jewellery than it is handcrafted. Many jewellers opt for using these tools like this it enables them to create exact copies and accurate measurements that be reproduced quickly. Handmade jewellery production requires thinking out of the box, to come up with original and one-off designs, if you want the best pieces to be made. This is exactly what a handmade jeweller does.
When you watch a handmade jeweller crafting his design you will be stunned by the way he or she does it. There is real love for the work that flows through into their designs. It is more like a potter who uses an ordinary lump of clay and moulds the most ornamental pots out of them and they don't know how it's going to be because it's their hands that ultimately bring out the design.
It is a commonly held belief that says that diamonds are the most precious and beautiful stones. There are several beautiful stones like sapphire, ruby, emeralds, turquoise, tourmaline, peridot and cats' eye which can actually give your jewellery a most ancient and historical look. Every piece of jewellery that the handmade jeweller creates will have a story of its own and this is what you want to see on your wife.
Some people might call it utter stupidity to go about buying handcrafted ornaments because to their eyes it might not have the finish that they witness in the machine crafted ones. It is their rugged nature that adds to the beauty of the handmade ones though. When you consider maintenance, these machine crafted pieces are not what you would consider an investment because repair can be extremely costly and can cause the metal a lot of damage and wear and tear.
If you are looking for a long-lasting piece of jewellery, then a handmade jeweller is who you want. They will provide value for your money and because each piece is so skillfully made it becomes a lot more attractive too. You also need to be careful because you need to find an authentic designer to make sure you get the best results. Look for certified material and a jewellery designer who has a good history of work and plenty of pictures and examples. Giving your wife a truly original piece of work will no doubt make her feel proud of the selection you have made.
