The wide variety of styles for custom necklaces allows you to choose the one best suited for you. When creating a custom necklace, it is important that you find one that complements your style. The questions below are ones we commonly receive regarding custom necklaces and pendants:
What are the most common types of metal for custom bracelets?
Gold bracelets are made with gold that is mixed with other metals. Gold is commonly made in jewelry from 14 karat (70% pure gold) to 24 karat (91.6% pure gold). The higher the purity of the gold, the softer it becomes when heated. If your jewelry was 24 karat, it would be so soft that you could not wear it without damaging it. There are also variants in color, in the forms of yellow gold, white gold, or even rose gold.
Silver and stainless steel bracelets are made of multiple silver types. Silver tarnishes, but it can be removed with a cleaning solution. Stainless steel is also resilient, durable, and won’t tarnish.
Using platinum in a custom bracelet is fantastic because platinum is a very elegant metal, and as a result, it is also one of the most expensive. It’s incredibly durable, high-quality, and resistant to tarnishing and corrosion. This will last you a lifetime.
What is a tennis bracelet?
Tennis bracelets are made from a series of small gemstone beads that are linked together in a narrow chain. A famous tennis player, Chris Evert, wore a diamond bracelet while playing a tennis match. She paused the game and shouted, “I’ve dropped my tennis bracelet” — thus changing its name forever.
What is a chain bracelet?
Chain bracelets are composed of small ovals or loops that are linked together. The design of a bracelet is based on the number of links in its chain. Often called a bangle, or bangles, it can be worn alone or you can attach charms to make it a little more personalized. The chain bracelets for women are smaller and thinner than those for men and commonly worn for formal occasions.
