Design your own jewellery online
StyleRocks is new website that allows you to design your own pieces of jewellery. Priced between $135 and $530 ‒ which is really quite reasonable for solid silver and gold, customised jewellery ‒ the rings, bracelets, cuff-links and necklaces are the perfect way to create your individual look.
According to its creator, Pascale Helyar-Moray, the StyleRocks website can create up to 87 million combinations, so there’s sure to one that will suit your taste, budget and style.
StyleRocks was set up in Australia in 2011 when Pascale returned to her home country and had twins; after years as a financial services marketer she wanted to pursue her dream of becoming a jewellery designer.
“Jewellery design has been my life-long passion of mine, so I was looking for a way to combine that passion with a career that was more conducive to motherhood,” says Pascale. “The idea of setting up my own business from home, doing something I love, seemed the best way to marry those two worlds.”
The idea behind StyleRocks came from Pascale’s need to find personalised jewellery without the hassle of having to visit a jeweller.
“I felt it was important to start StyleRocks because I wanted to be able to create jewellery exactly as I wanted it,” she says. “When purchasing jewellery in-store or online, I always found myself wanting to customise it ‒ change the metal or the gemstones ‒ to make it right for me. I have worked with jewellers previously in designing my own pieces but it’s a time-consuming and expensive process.
“When it came to choosing jewellery as gifts, I wanted to have the ability to create something that completely encapsulated the relationship between me and my special gift recipient. Why should we settle for something that is mass-produced, or simply acceptable; one should be thrilled that their jewellery piece is exactly right for them?”
Using StyleRocks is fairly easy. You can start with the item you want to make, like a ring or bracelet, or you can choose a motif like a rose and then decide what you want to wear it on. You can even add your own words with engraving.
There are various collections to get you started on ideas ‒ Polka Dot Bride, The Sophisticate, Men’s Gift Ideas and Valentine’s Day (of course) ‒ and you can also just browse the site for designs or click the “Lucky Dip” button for the site to “create” a piece for you.
All of the pieces are available in sterling silver, gold and rose gold except for the earrings ‒ since rose gold has copper in it to make it pink, you can’t make pierced earrings from it as it can cause health issues.
The metal and stones, and the jewellery items themselves are all made or sourced in Australia and StyleRocks ships to Singapore for $57, but you’ll need to pay any taxes yourself. Oh, and don’t forget that the prices are all currently in Australian dollars, so you’ll need to convert to Singapore dollars when you’re going through the check-out.
For a totally unique gift for yourself or your loved ones, the StyleRocks website is an amazing option. Imagine what you’ll be able to create for Valentine’s Day next year or even your own wedding?
