CUSTOM JEWELRY DESIGN
Fine jewelry is the perfect expression of your individuality. Sometimes you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for in our showcases. You might have a vision of something that will be uniquely you. Custom designed jewelry is the ultimate luxury and fashion statement. When it comes to designing one-of-a-kind rings, necklaces, bracelets or earrings, there are no limits to your imagination and our creativity.
A custom designed piece does not necessarily come from scratch. It can be a family heirloom from your grandmother’s antique pin, pearls worn at your mother’s wedding, diamond stud earrings; all to be reimagined and repurposed into a new custom pendant, ring or necklace, you’ll wear and enjoy each and every day.
Ready for custom?
You’ve luckily found the right place.
It starts with a little brainstorming.
What we love most about custom design is the collaboration we can do together. Bring us your thoughts, your ideas, your dreams, and your desires, because every beautiful piece of custom jewelry begins with a conversation. We’ll sit down with you and discuss what you want, what you need, and what you love. We’ll talk about everything from gemstones and metal to lifestyle and budget. All of this sets the stage for an amazing, personal custom jewelry project. We might even sketch some ideas alongside you. Once we’re confident we understand exactly what you want, we’ll provide you with a cost so there’s no surprises! Then we’re on to the next step. Not all custom design projects necessarily follow each step below, but many do!
The second part of the custom jewelry design is transforming your ideas using a CAD system. CAD is a state-of-the-art computer-aided design software that brings your piece to life on our computer, detailing its form, shape, gemstone position, and texture. At this stage, you’ll have the opportunity to view several perspectives of your custom piece, and adjustments can easily be made at this stage of development.
Once we receive some of your input after you view the CAD design, we’ll produce a model using our 3D printer or our mill. At this stage you will be able to see an actual scale model prior to it going to the next phase, casting. In addition, after the CAD and modeling work is complete, we have a pretty good idea of what it will take to create.
Cast. Set. Finish!
Your custom piece is now ready to be cast in the precious metal of your choice. Once cast, one of our professional stone setters carefully assembles and sets each stone. Your custom design is then inspected and prepared with your desired finish, be that high polish, brushed, satin or one of the varieties of finishes available for your unique piece. Your jewelry is inspected once again upon finishing, to ensure that every detail will exceed your expectations.
This is our favorite part! Presenting the piece and seeing your reaction is the reason we do what we do. The custom design process may follow a similar path for every project, but it is never the same. Every piece has a story, a history, a future. And every single piece is worth the attention to detail to make it absolutely perfect. More importantly, we hope we made the process easy and fun.
