Custom jewelry is so very popular these days…. and I can see why?  Why settle for a generic piece of jewelry when you can have your loved ones’ names on it?  And it would be even more special to add special charms and have it made of metals of your choice!  I just don’t see any downside to custom jewelry, especially when it’s this affordable!
