If you're a member of the LGBT community, you may feel a sense of pride. Many people who belong to this community use bumper stickers on their vehicles and clothing to represent themselves. Another option to consider is custom jewelry. If you enjoy wearing jewelry and you've come up with a few ideas for pieces that appeal to you, locate a custom jeweler in your community and present these ideas to them. You can either share some sketches or simply explain your ideas to the best of your ability. Your jeweler can then work on creating one or more pieces that you can wear with pride. Here are some ideas that you might wish to suggest.
Ring With Rainbow Stones
One option to think about is having your custom jeweler produce a ring that has several colors of stones on it, forming a rainbow. Many people in the LGBT community use the rainbow image as a source of pride, so this type of ring might be one that you're excited to wear daily. Your budget can dictate how the jeweler proceeds. If you have a large budget, actual gemstones such as emeralds and rubies may be appealing. If your budget is smaller, colored glass can be a good alternative.
While rainbow colors have a close bond with the LGBT community, some people also use a pink triangle as a symbol. There are many different ways that you can incorporate this idea into jewelry, but one option is a pink triangle pendant. Rose gold has a pinkish hue, so a triangular-shaped pendant made from this metal can be a good choice. You may wish to have the jeweler engrave something onto the front or back of the pendant. One option is the date on which you came out to family and friends.
Gender Symbol Bracelet
If you favor a custom bracelet, you have a number of options to consider. While you could certainly opt for a bracelet with colored stones, another option is to choose a design that features gender symbols. Some members of the LGBT community favor items that feature two male symbols or two female symbols, for example. If this idea appeals to you, a chain-style bracelet that has gender symbol charms hanging off it might be enticing. Or, you might favor a thicker bracelet that has these symbols engraved on its surface.
