Can’t find the perfect piece? Let’s design it together!
Custom design is probably the most exciting way of giving and receiving jewelry! It is an expression of your commitment, your love, your dreams and your unique creativity.
And custom design is one of the things that we love to do. If you do not find what you’ve envisioned in our stock, we can design it for you and bring your vision to life.
Getting started with custom jewelry design
Our jewelers are artists. They are talented, skilled, and experienced craftsmen. Most of all, they are able to listen carefully to your needs and wants and interpret your vision into a jewelry design to fit you perfectly.
Your design should suit your personal style, your lifestyle, your budget, and your time frame. If we can’t do that, we will tell you from the beginning. No need to waste everyone’s time!
We also won’t reduce the quality or weight of the materials to suit a budget if doing so will affect the integrity and beauty of the piece. Although we hate to admit it, there is a limit to the magic that we make. We are limited by the market costs of precious metals and fine gemstones. But we do our best to work within your budget and accept various forms of payment, even working out staged delivery if needed.
Your initial design draft
We will meet with you during working hours or by private appointment to begin to define your design. First on paper, then by way of CAD technology (Computer Aided Design). There is a non-refundable design fee of $250 for this service. It will be applied to the final cost of creating your piece once approval is given.
We will produce shaded/line style engineering drawings, as well as full-color renderings of your piece. We can even show you what a ring will look like on a virtual hand, so you can get a sense of the real proportions!
Price quote & approval
After you approve your design, we will be able to quote you an exact metal weight and the number/size of gemstones and diamonds, if any. The labor for finishing, assembling and detailing the mounting and setting any stones will also be included.
All of this translates into a final estimate that is within a $150.00 margin, depending on the market price on the day you make your deposit. We require 50% down on deposit, with the balance paid on delivery.
If you have a piece of jewelry that you love and want to modify slightly, our expert jewelers will work with you to redesign it and make it look like a brand new piece!. If you have an old wedding set and want to reset your diamonds in a new mounting, we can do that too.
Our jewelers take pride in their craftsmanship, ensuring that the results will be above and beyond your expectations.
