Of course, if you want specific materials, such as precious or precious stones set on your pendant, or a jewel design of your own creation, you will necessarily have to call on a jeweler able to offer you more options in term of design and more choice for materials.

Who can customize your pendant?

For a pendant design of your creation that is a little elaborate, you will necessarily have to call a jeweler.

If you know a jeweler near you, this option will surely be the easiest for you.

If you do not have time to move and want to compare different quotes for your project, then choosing to contact online jewelers will be the most convenient option.

You can do a search via google, and consult online different jewelers who will present their quote.

But to have a quote consistent with your needs, still need to know how to explain your need:

  • What is the design of your pendant?
  • What are its dimensions?
  • What materials do you want?
  • What is your limit budget?

    Pendant created from a drawing

    Whether you are going to see a jeweler in your city, or contacting an online jeweler, you will need to make a sketch of your pendant project.

    And yes !

    Ask 10 people to draw a dog and you will end up with 10 different drawings.

    All will have 4 legs and a head, but there will be small, big, different colors ... it is all these details, which make the difference, which will appear on your drawing.

    Oh I know, you're going to tell me it's complicated because you do not know how to draw.

    But that's not an excuse!

    Here is a drawing of my godchild who served as a basis for the realization of his personalized pendant:

    If you are thinking of creating your own design by taking your inspiration elsewhere, then you can easily edit the photo of a jewel in the pen to show the changes you want.

    This is what made this person who chose an existing pendant model to change the design, dimensions and type of stone, and here is the result:

    Gold or silver, which metal to choose?

    If you want a custom-made pendant, forget about steel and junk!

    Depending on your expectations and your budget, a jeweler can offer you 925 or 950 silver and 18, 14 or 9 carat gold.

    It's up to you to know what you want and to know your budget.

    Why?

    Because it will then be easier for the jeweler contacted to understand your need to offer you options or alternatives to get your project into the envelope of your budget.

    How much does it cost?

    Impossible to give you an answer as the estimate of your project depends on the size of the jewel, the chosen materials, the working time and the hourly rate of your jeweler.

    For a realization of a simple jewel in solid silver, it will be necessary to count at least 150 euros in general.

    Compare the quotes with different jewelers and you will quickly have an idea if your project is feasible for your budget.
