One of the coolest and more personal gifts you can give someone is a piece of custom made jewelry. These gifts are great because they are thoughtful and they show the person who receives the gift that you truly care about them and put in thought. Instead of picking out a random set of earrings or a necklace from under the glass, you can choose something that is specifically tailored to the person's own aesthetic. And the great thing about custom jewelry is that there are so many different options to choose from. So, you can find something that is perfectly suited to the person and means a great deal to them. Here are a few of the unique custom designs to consider:

Celtic Inspired Knotwork Designs

If the person you are giving the gift to is someone who has an interest in Celtic artwork, then a really great necklace design is one that incorporates Celtic knot-work. This sort of design is beautiful and can be incorporated any number of ways. A knotwork design in the shape of a triangle (a common motif in celtic designs) can be hung as a pendant, or you might even choose a necklace that is made of a material such as velvet with a teardrop pendant with celtic knotwork adorning the teardrop.

Religious Motifs

For people who are religious, you could always get a religious symbol. You might choose from a subtle silver crucifix, a Celtic cross, or a St. Andrews cross. For Jewish people, you could find a Star of David design or even a symbol such as the chai which is a well known good luck symbol. The chai is a Hebrew phrase which turns up on amulets, scrolls, and pendants. Another consideration is the Hamsa, which is a design that looks like a hand. It's popular among both Christians, Jewish people, and Muslims. It is a great pendant design for people who are spiritual and also into ethnography as the hamsa shows up across so many cultures.

Singular Stone Pendants

You don't have to go religious if you don't feel comfortable with that. You can also get a necklace that features a single pendant stone that will stand out and be beautiful. You can pick a stone that isn't even an expensive precious stone, something such as polished rose quartz, or polished agate. These would be an affordable alternative to a ruby or diamond which would be prohibitively expensive for most people.
