Christmas is a special time of year, and often people wish to give something unique as a gift. Nothing is as unique like a custom made piece of jewellery. Creating a custom made piece does take time – from the design process to fabricating the entire timeline can take 8-10 weeks. Below we will provide some examples of pieces you might want to consider having made in time for Christmas.
An Engagement Ring
Did you know that nearly 40% of couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day? And within that period Christmas Eve is the most popular day to get engaged. At Odyssey Jewellery you have a plethora of styles to choose from. We have traditional diamond engagement rings to something more unique. Many of our clients in recent years choose to design something themselves and work with us to make that vision a reality. To get started we recommend people start 8-10 weeks before Christmas. You can book an appointment with us or pop in to talk to one of our experts. Please feel free to bring any photos or drawings as inspiration, and you can work with our designers to perfect the design of your ring. Some couples like to design a ring together which is always special. We will work to produce final design sketches for you to approve, we will review materials including which center stone you wish to use. After your final sign off the ring will be created right here on site – our experts will finish your ring in time for Christmas!
Christmas Themed Jewellery
Jewellery designed specifically for the Christmas season began decades ago during WWII when women would pin Christmas themed corsages to their coats – something cheery during the harsh war years. Since the 1940’s this trend shifted to more permanent Christmas broaches often being added to coats and outfits during December. We enjoy working with clients to design memorable broaches that are often handed down to subsequent generations. More recently we’ve found people wanting ‘winter’ themed jewellery in the form of necklaces or earrings they can wear throughout the season. A Christmas themed gift set of jewellery makes a wonderful and memorable gift. One of our clients had a different themed broach designed every year providing their loved one a lovely collection that are quickly becoming family heirlooms.
At Odyssey Jewellery we have created every item of jewellery and often we design complete sets which can be worn together or separately. If this interests you for a Christmas gift we recommend popping into our store in October to view what we have to offer. Many of our sets include matching necklace, earrings and bracelet pieces. Our jewellery is made with the highest quality precious metals and stones. If you don’t see anything you like we highly encourage you to talk to one of our jewellers about creating a custom set for your loved one this Christmas. A custom made jewellery set, perhaps incorporating the person’s birthstone or other sentimental element, is sure to be a winner Christmas morning! Make sure to bring with you the person’s ring size and an idea of the length of necklace – we like to start these sets in October so that they design process is stress free and you have your finished set in plenty of time for Christmas.
