Buying Custom Jewelry Scholarship

CustomMade is a marketplace for creating custom items in cooperation with North American-based production shops. Consumers come to CustomMade in search of fine custom jewelry including custom rings, custom bracelets, and many other types of custom creations.

At CustomMade.com, we believe in the production and purchase of locally-made products. An increasing challenge faced by local jewelers is that of overcoming the competitive prices offered by companies that manufacture overseas. Many local jewelers, like those on CustomMade.com, compete by offering a higher quality and one-of-a-kind product that will last for generations - delivering better value to the consumer.
