It’s always fun to find unique and sentimental ways to mark your destination wedding or honeymoon. Whether that involves wedding photos displayed on canvases in your home or a guest book idea, which doubles as décor. We recently came across another unique way to mark the moment of your wedding away or honeymoon. Coordinates Collection is a customizable jewelry line where you can engrave your own custom coordinates to signify an important place in your life – i.e. Maui where you said “I do” or Paris where you honeymooned. If you want to commemorate a popular destination, Coordinates also has stock jewelry already engraved with places like Los Angeles, New York, Paris or San Francisco.
If you’re looking for alternatives to traditional wedding bands, Coordinates also might be a good fit for you. In addition to necklaces, pendants and bracelets, they also have rings. You can pick a ring style to have coordinates and a personalized message engraved. If gifting is your aim, you might also consider a necklace or bracelet for your bridesmaids. You could customize the coordinates for each bridesmaid i.e. the place where she met her husband, her hometown…the options are endless. Aside from the customization, Coordinates Collection is also great because it fits all price points. Every piece is made using high quality materials such as semi-precious to precious metals, stones and ceramic coatings.
Every piece is handmade in Coordinates facility in Los Angeles. To design your own Coordinates jewelry, there are five simple steps.
- Select your style (bracelet, necklace, ring, etc.)
- Select your base metal (plated, sterling silver, 14K gold, etc,)
- Select your finish (silver, antique gold, 22K gold, etc.)
- Select your stone (diamond, garnet, sapphire, etc.)
- Select your coordinates and engrave (latitude, longitude and a message or date)
Once you’ve designed your Coordinates piece and placed your order, it takes 24 hours to process. After that, it takes roughly 21 days for your piece to be made, inspected and shipped. Prices for pieces range from roughly $125 all the way up to $6,000, depending on your choices. For example, a 14K gold metal with a 22K gold finish and diamond accents will be more expensive than most designs.
