Sure, you can slowly award tier-appropriate magic items to your low-level D&D party.
You can give a party of 2nd-level characters an artifact—and a list of powerful creatures that are actively searching for it.

I love doing this. At some point, I’d love to run a campaign where a group of starting characters each manage to get ahold of an artifact, then have to keep them away from everyone looking for them.
