Letter bar and heart necklaces from Dylan Oaks.

When jewellery and customisation merge it’s a dream

I love getting a piece of jewellery as a gift whether from someone else or just as a treat to myself to mark a special occasion.

When jewellery and customisation come together then it’s just the absolute dream and I’ve been checking out the fab pieces from jewellery brand Dylan Oaks.

Dylan Oaks was founded in 2020 by jewellers and partners John McAnenly and Laura Sherry.

What started as a team of 2 has now grown into a thriving business, with a passionate and driven team of 28 people servicing customers from all over the world.

Creating contemporary, meaningful jewellery through the customisation of eye- catching, staple pieces is at the heart of their brand; as is their mission to provide an outstanding customer experience and high-quality, made-to-last pieces at an affordable price tag.

The launch of Dylan Oaks’ experiential contemporary store in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre has revolutionised the shopping experience. A dedicated stylist is on hand to help customers select and customise their piece, with bespoke personalisation completed live in store in as little as 20 minutes.

It’s a must if you find yourself in Dublin but you can also find their gorgeous collection via the Dylan Oaks website where you can get your special pieces personalised with a number of engraving options.

Now you may think it’s too early to discuss such things seeming as we are all still working our way towards the end of January but with Cupid’s bow and arrow locked and loaded for Valentine’s Day, Dylan Oaks have the perfect solution to gifting that special someone with their stunning, customisable Amore collection.

Named after the Italian word for its inspiration ‘love’, the Amore collection has been artfully curated to combine sentimental yet modern simplicity with stylish staples that can be effortlessly worn as a wearable expression of your love.

Choose from their timeless, bestselling range of personalised letter bar necklaces, or opt for their chic, heart-shaped selection of carefully crafted sterling silver or gold earrings, rings and necklaces that can be layered for a stylish, textured look. Whatever your choice, just like cupid’s arrow, your gift is bound to capture and captivate the recipient’s heart.

These pieces aren’t just for V-day though. They also make a lovely birthday gift or just a way to mark an occasion.

My bridesmaids got me a disc engraved with my wedding date as a wedding gift and I treasure it.

To make it even more special each piece can be personalised with a name, date, initial or message - anything that celebrates or commemorates a memory or a moment in your romance or a friendship.

Their state of the art machinery, operated by skilled and experienced staff, will ensure your jewellery is engraved with a flawless, striking and everlasting finish. An Amore heart-shaped necklace and matching stud earrings are available to purchase as a luxury giftset, beautifully packaged and ready for gifting.

Let’s not forget the guys which I personally find very hard to buy for.

The man in your life will adore Dylan Oaks’ sophisticated tie pins and cufflink set, guaranteed to add an understated touch of refinement to formal and smart casual wear.

It would make a lovely gift for a groom to be or someone graduating so they have something to remember the special day forever.
