Craftd London Review & Recommendations (2022)

Adding jewelry and other accessories to my overall style can be a challenge for me and other men. We cannot buy jewelry in the same way women can. There is a stigma that men must own real, authentic, and expensive jewelry. In this review, I will discuss how I believe Craftd London breaks that stigma. They provide quality and authentic jewelry for men at affordable prices.

About Craftd London

Craftd London is a premium jewelry brand for men. They sell pendants, chains, bracelets, and rings. Founded by both Alex Cannon and Danny Buck, they are based in the United Kingdom and sell to over 100 countries worldwide.

Vision

According to their website, Craftd’s vision is to bridge the gap between quality and the high markups that plague the men’s jewelry industry. Also, they make jewelry for people who value self-belief and know who they are. This is because their pieces, specifically their pendants, have meanings that customers can relate to.

Craftd London Experience

It is Craftd’s vision that secured my support for them. First, their pieces prove that they do bridge the gap between quality and affordable prices. Although pieces are as cheap as $34, the quality of the design and material, no matter the price, is superb. Craftd’s pieces are truly sweat and waterproof. So far, I have worn my pieces while exercising and in a pool and they have not rusted, fade, or turn a different color yet.

Second, Craftd is indeed all about self-belief. Their pendants and rings have meanings behind them. These meanings are meant to be relatable to customers and align with who they are. Certainly, reading the meanings behind their pendants helped me make my final decision.

First Purchase

My very first purchase from Craftd London includes their Rope Gold Chain, the matching bracelet, and the St. Christopher Gold Pendant. I purchased the Rope Gold Chain in a size 50cm and the bracelet in size 19cm. Both pieces come in 18K Gold and Premium 316L Stainless Steel.

I purchased the rope gold chain because part of me wants to hold off on the Cuban link chain. Yes, Craftd’s Cuban links range from $67 to $107. However, my instincts keep telling me to wait. On the other hand, I’ve always wanted a rope chain. I believe they are more stylish and are better suited for my first gold chain.

I could not resist the matching Rope Gold Bracelet and its $34 price. Usually, I do not wear bracelets or any wrist jewelry, even watches. However, so far, I am impressed. My only issue with this bracelet is its small and slippery lock. It is tricky and sometimes time-consuming to put on. However, the more I wear the bracelet, the easier it gets to secure on my wrist.

St. Christopher Gold Pendant

It did not take long to decide on the rope chain with its matching bracelet. However, Craftd does suggest pairing them with a pendant. Choosing a pendant took some time because I did want to pick one I can relate to best, as Craftd intended. Ultimately, I chose the St. Christopher Gold Pendant.

Craftd London describes the St. Christopher Gold Pendant as a protector for wearers while on their journey, whatever or wherever it may be. It is meant to provide faith that no matter how crazy a journey gets, everything will work out. I chose this pendant because I am always on a journey. Either I am always traveling somewhere or working towards personal and professional goals. For example, this blog, my modeling, and overall entrepreneur endeavors are journeys I am currently on. This pendant serves its purpose by reminding me to never give up as I work towards them every day.

Story of St. Christopher

This pendant is inspired by the story of St. Christopher, the patron of safe travels. According to Silas Henderson on Aleteia, St. Christopher was a big and strong man. Once a thief and robber, he was looking for someone powerful to serve. At first, he served the devil. However, he later serves Jesus Christ when he learns how powerful he is.

Learning the Christian faith from a hermit, St. Christopher is instructed to carry travelers across a dangerous local river. One traveler he carries grows heavy as they cross the river. Upon reaching the other side, the child is now a grown man. That child reveals himself as Jesus Christ. Jesus explains to St. Christopher that he was carrying the weight of the world on his shoulder.

Shipping

Prior to purchasing from Craftd London, I came across positive shipping reviews. So many customers around the world said their orders arrived within a week. I did end up paying extra for faster 2-day shipping. This is to ensure the pieces arrived in time for an approaching photoshoot. However, given the overall positive reviews, I think my pieces would have arrived on time if I paid for standard shipping.

Final Thoughts

Ever since I began improving my personal style, I wanted to increase my jewelry collection. I want to own more than the diamond tennis chain given to me. Despite not having hundreds of dollars to spend on expensive jewelry, I do not want to settle for average quality in exchange for better prices. Craftd London is exactly the jewelry store I have been looking for.

Craftd’s prices are great for me and the quality is amazing. I can go about my active lifestyle and not have to worry about wear and tear. Also, their pieces have meaning to them, so I am not just buying anything simply because of the look.

I certainly plan on buying more Craftd pieces in the future. Check out my official list of Craftd London recommendations below to see the pieces I like and recommend to you. Also, leave a comment below or send me a message with any thoughts.
