Looking for a one-of-a-kind engagement ring, necklace, pendant, pair of earrings, bracelet or a fun cocktail ring? Are you inspired by a picture of a unique piece of jewelry you would like customized with additional details or would like duplicated for yourself? Have you fallen in love with the top part of one setting and the bottom or sides of another and want to combine the designs? Come see us!
Let our experienced and talented jewelry consultants work with you to design a piece of jewelry that's as unique as your individual style. Even if you're still in the thinking process of figuring out exactly what you want, or if you haven't a clue, it's our pleasure to sit down with you to brainstorm and shape design ideas into a finished creation — at no additional charge!
We'll start from a sketch, transform it into a digital image, then work our way to a 3-D model and finish up with a gorgeous, polished creation you'll treasure forever. And to top it off — your custom creation comes with our Free Lifetime Limited Diamond Warranty to ensure that your piece of jewelry is constantly brilliant and for you to have peace of mind knowing your custom jewelry creation is backed by a jeweler you can trust.
How long does the process take?
The majority of custom designs can be completed within 3-4 weeks. However, we don't cut corners and attention to detail is our #1 priority! Some custom projects may take longer, depending on the number of items or work involved. If your custom-design project is for a special occasion or event, we recommend starting the project very early to ensure the custom piece is ready by the desired date.
Do I need to know the type of jewelry or design I want before coming to visit you?
That's our job! We're to here to help you get the creative process started and turn that design into a beautifully finished piece of jewelry you'll be proud to wear or give for a special occasion. Many of our customers visit us with an idea in mind, but if you haven't the slightest clue, our jewelry designers will happily work with you to create a one-of-a-kind heirloom.
Can you use gold, platinum or silver from some of my old jewelry?
Dependant upon the quality and age of the jewelry you would like re-purposed into a new piece, we can typically use some of the metal from your existing items in a new piece. However, to ensure a well-built and well-structured piece of jewelry, we recommend that new and refined metals are used in the creation of the newly designed piece.
Can you use diamonds and/or gemstones from some of my old jewelry?
Yes! Since custom designing your own piece of jewelry has virtually no limits, we can custom-make settings specific to the size and shape of your diamonds and gemstones that hold sentimental value and family history, so those memories can be handed down to future generations.
Are custom pieces expensive?
No. Typically, custom-designed jewelry is not more expensive than already-designed-and-made jewelry in our showcases. The price of a custom-design project is based on many factors: the current metal market and type of metal used, the size/shape/quality and number of diamonds or gemstones used, and the degree of labor complexity involved.
