OUR CUSTOM PROCESS

Design Consultation 

Book a consultation o design the perfect piece for you. We’ll discuss your vision and budget. Want to re-purpose unworn jewelry, Great! Don’t worry— our expert jewelry design staff can guide through each step of the process. We consider a lot of information for your design: who the jewelry is for, why you are making, and any of your ideas. Our goal is to create jewelry that the recipient has been dreaming of!

Sketching & Design

Based on your consultation we can bring your design to life on paper while keeping in mind your budget and structural durability. After viewing the sketch, you give feedback and revisions until we get exactly what you envisioned. 

Once you’re Satisfied with your custom design, you’ll put down a deposit and continue to the next step of the design process

Diamonds & Gemstones

Based on your design, desired quality and budget we find options for your perfect gem or diamond. At this meeting, you’ll get to see, feel, and hand select each stone that goes into your ring. 

CAD

Our in-house design can engineer a 3D CAD model and send you a digital rendering of all angles of your design.  We take the 3D concept to metal perfecting the metal weight, structural integrity, and potential carat weight. After your approval of the rendering, we send it to our 3D printer to “grow” a wax model!

Casting, Setting, Finishing

Behind the scenes, we begin the production process! We use the “grown” wax model and “invest” it to make a casting of your ring. From there, our master jewelers handsets the stones, add any handcrafted details. The final step of the production process includes adding texture and polishing your piece to perfection. 

Delivery

Finally, your design is complete and you can pick it up! We’ll talk about care and maintenance, provide an appraisal and documentation on stones. We look forward to seeing you again for your regular cleanings and maintenance!
