In order to find the best pieces of jewelry for special occasions, you need to make sure you know what you want and need. One of the best ways to get the perfect piece for any occasion is to have custom jewelry pieces made for your special occasion. Here is some information to help you make the best choice and secure the best quality jewelry. Keep these things in mind and you will be off to a good start in your search for custom pieces of jewelry.

Gold Jewelry
Gold is one of the most common and the most malleable of all the precious metals used in jewelry pieces. It is perhaps the most popular choice for metal in rings, necklaces, brooches, and other pieces of fine jewelry. The higher the carat rating of the gold, the better quality it is and the higher quality it is. A quality piece of fine jewelry is made from the purest gold, so make sure you check the purity of the gold when making a choice.

Platinum
Platinum is a pricy but very precious metal that is growing in popularity in the fine jewelry market. It is a great option for jewelry for special occasions. It is preferred by many over other silver colored metals because of its value and strength. It can be used on its own in jewelry, or it can be mixed with other alloys to make platinum mix metals that include iridium, palladium, ruthenium, rhodium, and osmium.

Silver
Sterling silver is a tried and true metal that is very commonly used in making customized jewelry pieces. All high quality silver is required to be marked with a purity rating. Many people love the look and feel of silver and prefer it over gold or some of the other metals out there.

Gemstones
Fine gemstone jewelry can use gemstones that occur naturally or ones that have been manufactured. The natural occurring stones are often rare and more expensive, but offer a higher value. Some gemstones take many years to mine, polish, shape, cut, and prepare for jewelry, so man made gemstones are an option that some fine jewelers do offer.

With these basic tips in mind, you can begin your search for custom jewelry pieces, now that you know the basics of what to look for. Finding jewelry for special occasions is an adventure and should be an enjoyable experience, not a stressful and aggravating one.
