In a world of every changing trends and fast fashion, and with so many people wearing the same trend items on repeat, I always get excited to find a company, particularly a jewelry company, that is unique and allows you to put your own stamp on their products. I was therefore so excited to learn about Capsul Jewelry, which allows you to do just that. They create customizable jewelry for any occasion with one of a kind pieces created just for you or the one you love. Using 3D printing technology, Capsul Jewelry can create necklaces, rings, cuffs, dog tags and bracelets made out of your own handwriting or even record a sound wave of the one you love and have it printed on a piece of jewelry.
Everything is truly customizable, including their ready-to-wear pieces with necklaces and bracelets available to spell out a message or a name in block letters. They even have rings that are stackable to create special initials.
Made with sterling silver or brass and available in gold, rose gold and silver finishes, Capsul Jewelry is a stunningly modern and unique company, that is both manufacturing products in an environmentally responsible factory, and donating portions of certain collections to non-profits, making Capsul Jewelry a company that is also spreading an important social message.
I sat down with the incredible founder and CEO of Capsul Jewelry, Tina Cheng, to discuss all the pieces in her beautiful collection and find out what gave her the idea to start up such a unique company.
Despite this being Cheng’s first foray into the fashion world, it’s one of the most exciting and unique ideas I’ve heard in a while. I ask Cheng what made her come up with the idea? "I started this brand, as I saw a need and a demand from the new millenniums to have personalized jewelry that is not only fashionable and modern, but is also meaningful, so I created Capsul Jewelry.” Helping her customers capture their memories Cheng says, “You can encapsulate a joyous moment of your life, and each piece can be customized with your own handwriting.” Pointing to a piece of jewelry Cheng is wearing, a sound wave of her daughter saying, 'I love you Mommy,' Cheng says, "Every time I look down at it, I literally hear her voice in my head.”
One of their most popular pieces is a little envelope necklace with a little letter that pulls out that you can handwrite a word in your own handwriting, “that a loved one can keep close to their heart” Cheng says.
The Cut Out Custom Collection is one of their more modern collections, with rings that show peoples favorite cities on there such as, La La Land (Los Angeles), or can be cut out to show a word or another city that means something to their customer. The Cut Out Collection also includes Roman numerals showing a date that is important to you, like your child’s birthday, or an anniversary or first date.
The pieces have all been designed to be stackable and as more important moments happen in your life, you can simply add them to your collection.
All a customer has to do to get their personalized piece is write something on a piece of paper, or record a voice clip on their phone and screenshot or upload it to the website, then pick their style color, and material. The company will then go on to make a 3D mold of the piece, just for the customer and then use that mold to cast it in sterling silver or brass. The pieces are literally cast just for that particular customer and within 3-4 weeks they will have their piece.
“We love making pieces in foreign languages, or your own unique handwriting, even if it’s just a scribble from you kid, it’s a really elegant way to preserve your kids handwriting!”
With Christmas coming up, Cheng has just added a holiday collection, with cute words on necklaces such as, Sparkle, Merry and Joy.
Perfect for both the holidays, or to commemorate a special moment in your life, Capsul is a company you can turn to help immortalize those moments, and carry them with you everyday.
