Custom Jewelry for Men

If You Can Dream it, We Can Design it at Bremer

Custom designed jewelry is a luxurious vehicle for sentimental meaning, unique style and personality. While jewelry might often be associated with bridal styles or women’s fashion, men’s jewelry is not to be overlooked. Men are increasingly embracing the idea of adorning themselves with carefully curated pieces that reflect their individuality. Enter the world of custom jewelry for men, a realm where craftsmanship, personalization and style converge to create timeless, meaningful pieces. Read along with us to explore custom jewelry for men, including reasons to design your own custom jewelry, some ideas for custom jewelry pieces and the steps you can expect from the design process at Bremer. 

Why Choose Custom Jewelry for Men?

One of the most compelling reasons for men to choose custom jewelry is the ability to personalize each piece to match their distinct taste. Custom jewelry allows men to choose everything from the type of metal used to the gemstones incorporated, ensuring that each piece is a true reflection of their personality.


Custom jewelry for men serves as a tangible representation of personal stories and milestones. Whether your piece is created to commemorate a significant achievement, celebrate a special bond, or immortalize an important memory, custom pieces symbolize a man's journey and experiences. This storytelling aspect adds depth and sentiment to the jewelry and imbues it with special meaning. For this reason, custom pieces make wonderful gifts that will be cherished for a lifetime.


Investing in custom jewelry guarantees a level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Each piece is meticulously crafted by the skilled artisans at Bremer, who ensure that it meets the highest standards of quality. The result is a durable, well-crafted accessory that stands the test of time. You will even be involved in the design process, with the ability to select metals and gemstones and weigh in on the design.

3 Examples of Custom Jewelry for Men

Custom jewelry can span any number of items and styles, but some of our favorite items for men include signet rings, bracelets and necklaces.


Signet rings have a rich history dating back centuries and were once a symbol of status and lineage, typically designed with initials or a unique family emblem. Today, these timeless pieces are enjoying a resurgence in popularity. A custom signet ring allows individuals to choose the shape, size and design of the initials or emblem engraved on the ring, turning it into a personal, meaningful accessory. Whether opting for a classic oval shape or a more contemporary square design, a custom signet ring is a versatile and stylish addition to any man's jewelry collection.


Another jewelry piece to consider is a bracelet. Custom bracelets are versatile accessories that add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. A personalized bracelet offers a unique way to express individuality. From leather bands with engraved coordinates of a special place to beaded bracelets with custom initials, the options are endless. Bracelets not only serve as eye-catching accessories but also carry a personal touch that sets them apart.


You can also create a special statement piece with a custom necklace tailored to suit a man's style and preferences. Whether opting for a simple pendant or an elaborate design, a bespoke necklace allows for the selection of materials, gemstones and engravings that hold personal significance. For example, a custom dog tag necklace with important dates or coordinates can be a subtle yet powerful way to carry a meaningful reminder wherever one goes. You can also choose a meaningful pendant shape, or a stone that holds special symbolism. The ability to infuse personal elements into the design makes a custom necklace a cherished accessory.

How to Customize Your Jewelry

At Bremer, we’re honored to handcraft a special piece of jewelry just for you. We can help you get started in three easy steps:

1. Make an Appointment

2. Wax CAD

Using a combination of the latest technology and skilled artisanship, we will create a model of your special jewelry piece from wax. You’ll have the ability to review the model and request changes before the final piece is created.

3. Handcrafting Process

Once the design is approved, we’ll begin the handcrafting process. This involves selecting the chosen materials, shaping the metal, setting gemstones and meticulously bringing the design to life. Our skilled artisans work with precision and attention to detail, ensuring that the final product matches your vision in terms of both aesthetics and quality.

A Guide to Stacking Your Jewelry

A Guide to Stacking Your Jewelry

Jewelry stacking is all the rage these days, but it actually goes all the way back to the 16th and 17th centuries in Europe. During this time, interconnected wedding bands, called gimmel rings, constructed of two or three hoops were wildly popular. The bride and groom-to-be would each take one hoop from the ring and wear it. Then, on their wedding day, the groom would take his hoop and transfer it to his beloved’s, locking the two parts of the ring together. The completed ring – a stack of hoops – symbolized the couple’s everlasting relationship and love.
