A PIECE of jewelry is not just a piece of metal. Not when it is gifted, passed on, or crafted especially for you. This is where Ruzé, a local line of bespoke jewelry, steps in. Proving that every piece of jewelry must count and must be well-made, Ruzé Collections is a source of metal aret gift ideas and tokens.

Message in a Piece of Metal

Excited to get started?


Picking on designs is an important first step to getting your made-to-order (MTO) jewelry together. If you have made a habit out of drooling from the bits of inspiration all over online style or sartorial spaces for quite some time, you can zero in on designs (typography and plate style) you would prefer and show them to Ruzé for execution. But if you are absolutely clueless in the accessories game, the brand’s online homes will facilitate you in the design process. Browse through Ruzé’s gallery of delivered products and make up your mind.

Thing is, you have the freedom to assemble your own jewelry. Leading designs include pendants emblazoned with the initials or the first names of the wearer. If you are on the hunt for an impressive anniversary gift, personalized jewelry is perfect for the occasion! To commemorate milestones, a few customers have lovingly placed dedications or important dates on their orders. Each order being unique, the prices of each MTO product would vary on the kind of labor and the kind of metal applied. With Ruzé’s online presence, you do not need to get off your desk to get a piece of fine jewelry done.

Minimalist Party

The inspirational style photos in your feed have it: You can pull off wearing a bundle of jewelry in your fingers, arms and neck with élan! But not just any sort of jewelry will do, of course. Styling will be made easy if you stick to dainty things. An arm or neck party consisting of simple jewelry is a guaranteed looker! So, look for thin bands, bangles and simple designs if you want to join the minimalist train. In keeping with the aesthetic harmony, choose your typography well in order to make your message or names easy to read.

SB: How did you decide to create Ruzé?
RT: I just started with the accessory line but my husband has been into the metal arts with his family business for twelve years now. Being a family tradition definitely made it easier for me to make and produce Ruzé.

SB: As a jewelry maker, what’s an insider tip in jewelry care that you can share?
RT: You should have them professionally cleaned once in awhile. You can also do the cleaning yourself with soap and water. Take care not to apply harsh brushing or chemicals as these would scratch off the surface of the material. Refrain from having them sprayed on by perfume.

SB: As a mom of four kids, how has your accessory style evolved?
RT: I must say that I now prefer jewelry and accessories that are not too loud and are incredibly easy to wear
