In custom jewelry design you are involved in every step of the creative process. By providing your ideas and critiques, you create your own unique heirloom piece, statement design, bridal or engagement ring for you or your special someone.
To begin, you’ll meet with our experienced fine jewelry designer, Nina, for a free consultation. You’ll discuss your ideas, style, materials, and budget, which will all be incorporated into your one-of-a-kind jewelry design. From the consultation comes inspiration and design that begin to breathe life into your custom jewelry. Providing hand-selected stones, you will have the opportunity to choose your favorites from in house or sourced through our associates. We also enjoy working with family heirlooms and antique jewelry. Through our jewelry rendering service, the initial concepts are used to create a photo realistic image using CAD- Computer-Aided Design. This image will be presented to you for alterations, making sure it meets every expectation before moving forward.
After the CAD design is finalized and approved, your design goes into production. From here, your jewelry is 3D printed, cast, refined and set by hand. Metal smiths will handcraft the physical version- polishing, adding texture, and details. It is then handed off to the master gem-setter, who sets each stone with quality and care. We then inspect the piece ourselves, making sure it is constructed to perfection, before presenting you with your custom designed jewelry you only ever dreamed of.
