Why Use a Custom Cufflinks Designer?
Jewelry and the wearing of jewelry can be a very personal choice. You might not only want to decorate your cuffs but also make a statement. Maybe you are celebrating a wedding or an anniversary. Perhaps you want to display allegiance to a group or club, a religion or even a political group. Often that will require a unique design. This is when a custom cufflinks designer can help.
We have enjoyed making custom and personalized cufflinks for over a decade. We love to work with you to make a unique and meaningful piece of jewelry. However there are some practicalities that we have to take into account.
Things to consider before completing the Custom Cufflinks Designer form
First and foremost – have you actually thought closely about your design? Will it work?
Do you have enough space for the designs?
These designs are engraved to the face of the Cufflinks? The overall size of your custom cufflinks design must take into account how it will work when attached to your cuffs. If there is enough room on the cufflinks to engrave the design will they be too big when worn? Customers are often tempted to design cufflinks that would need to be too big to wear comfortably. This is where our experience can be a big help. We can make cufflinks from around 14mm to 29mm or even more if required. Shapes include oval, square, rectangular, round and even shield shapes. We make Lozenges and Cylinders but it might not be possible to engrave these shapes.
It is also possible to include sculpted shapes such as a frog or a completely custom and random design. We like to say that we will have a go at just about anything but we have to consider what size of cufflinks is suitable both for the design and the wearer.
What materials have you chosen for your custom cufflinks?
We specialize in engraving to various stones both intaglio, into the stone, and sculpted from the stone. However not all stones are the same. As you will see in section on our custom cufflinks designer page, some stones are harder and can take more intricate engraving. These are all natural stones so they have natural cracks and inclusions in them. That is what makes every piece unique but not every design will work with every stone.
Gold or Gold Plated Silver?
Did you choose gold for your cufflinks? Of course gold has been the favourite choice for jewelry designs for centuries. However not all gold is the same. The higher the Karat value the purer the gold but also the softer the metal. Many custom cufflinks will become heirloom jewelry that will be handed down through the generations. A 14 kt gold piece will have a much better chance of surviving.
Of course we all love gold. However when we create with gold we acknowledge that it will require a serious increase in our budget. In our custom cufflinks designer we have included gold plating as an option. This really helps save on costs and has the exact same look as gold. We plate to sterling silver .925 and this makes long lasting and strong cufflinks. However if the links are worn under harsh conditions the gold will eventually wear off.
You can re-plate the cufflinks but your local jeweler might be nervous of offering that service for fear of breaking the stone. If you do get stuck you can always get in touch with us. We can rebuild and re-plate the cufflinks. Maybe it won’t be necessary. Sometimes worn cufflinks develop quite a new and unique character over the years.
You might also want to consider matching the color of the metal with the stone. Sterling Silver will look great with a number of stones. Of course choosing sterling silver can save on costs but it can also enhance some designs. Never rule out solid sterling silver for your custom cufflinks.
How to choose the best custom cufflinks designer?
In a word reviews. There is nothing better than seeing what other customers have to say about a custom cufflinks designer. Did they take the time to get your design correct? Did they give you a realistic time frame to complete the job? Was the communication easy and fast? Did they explain all the possibilities as well as the problems with your design?
