[a custom-made piece of jewelry] or [a custom-made jewelry item]

I have made up an example below.

(ex) John and his wife are planning to celebrate the golden jubilee of their marriage next month. He wants to go to a local store and order a custom-made jewelry item for her.

My non-native English speaking friends think the phrase in orange is wrong. They suggest changing it to "a custom-made piece of jewelry".

Is my phrase in orange really wrong? Thank you very much for your help.

    Listen to your friends - their suggestion is somewhat more idiomatic. However, I would say "a piece of custom-made jewelry".
