Whats Good To Do have been extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity to review the fantastic new business DIWAH. This is an online design your own jewellery website based at www.DIWAH.com where everything is handmade and unique!
The concept is brilliantly flexible for customers, with four main ways to shop depending on how creative you are.
Firstly, and I would say for the most creative way to use the website, you can completely design your own necklaces or bracelets from scratch using a desktop computer or laptop. There are 6 necklace templates ranging from a simple princess pendant to a dramatic collar template as well as a bracelet template. You then choose your components of beads which have already been subcategorised for ease into colours or designs such as tribal, urban, bold, traditional etc. to make designing even easier for the customer. Within these components you can choose everything from link and clasp type, to types of beads (fashion, semi-precious etc.). It is then a case of clicking and dragging it into place using the template.
Secondly you can use already made up bracelet and necklace templates and simply change a few components to suit your style such as the pendant size and type.
Thirdly, if you want a unique piece of jewellery without any of your own designing, you can buy items that the team have already fully designed and created, all of which are still handmade by the team at DIWAH and you won’t find these designs on any other website.
And lastly, which I feel gives this business the uniqueness, is you can use the bespoke design service. This is how I choose my DIWAH bracelet! I simply filled in a few questions such as colour preferences, my fashion style, bead preferences, personality etc. then the team designed 2 options for me. I really loved both designed but picked a wonderful charm bracelet. I further emailed the team and asked to replace some of the beads with semi-precious stones, this was no problem and my bracelet was quickly altered with the new design sent for approval.
The bracelet I received is amazing! It arrived at my door beautifully wrapped with a personalised message. Every stone is semi-precious (as requested) including jade, turquoise, sea green agate and lilac agate. And the links are a beautiful patterned link making this even more unusual. I cannot believe this handmade bracelet cost only £53 with free delivery, an absolute bargain. The photos do not do this bracelet justice!
Another thing I love about this website is that it can suit anyone’s budget. You can design a £10 fashion piece to match a specific outfit or design an elaborate luxury piece using precious gemstones.
I cannot think of another company where you would get British handmade jewellery of this quality made to this high standard. The whole process from starting the design to delivery of the bracelet was quick, fun and completely professional. I even received an update midway showing the bracelet being made, a lovely little personal touch.
I cannot wait to take advantage of the gift cards they have available for Christmas this year!
I would highly recommend DIWAH and look forward to the next piece I will be creating.
