Custom Jewelry Process
Our custom is your creation!
What does the process entail?
First, sitting down or consulting over the phone with a staff member to discuss the elements you are looking to incorporate into the design. Once we have established all of the major to minute details a hand sketch is supplied in multiple views to give a true visual of the design before moving forward to the creation process.
Second, different design styles or jewelry pieces can require different methods of creation. Something sleek and modern is typically best produced in a CAD (Computer Assisted Design) program which allows us to create truly perfect pieces. For example, a customer requesting a matching wedding band is then made simple because we have the original engagement ring file to ensure a perfect match. In other scenarios, designs that are mimicking vintage jewelry styles of the past are best created by hand carving. The immense amount of detail, engraving styles, and piercing work require the human touch to bring it to life. Our designers will guide you in making the best decision to achieve the desired finish piece.
Third, be a part of the process! We offer each customer the opportunity to see their design work in person! Showing the CAD renderings of the design in an e-mail, printing the 3-D CAD design for viewing in store, or viewing the hand carved wax that our hand carver has brought to life from a solid wax block. Once the design has been approved by you and only you, our staff gets to work moving through the required steps of casting, picking matching quality stones, setting and finishing the truly one-of-a-kind item.
