Let’s walk through how the custom jewelry design process typically goes:
Step 1: Getting Started
You can either contact us to schedule an appointment or stop by our store for a design consultation. We will talk about your ideas with you and decide the best way to bring your custom work to life. We will also provide you with several design, material, and stone options for you to choose from.
For your consultation, please bring (if applicable):
- Any images or sketches you may have of designs that describe your ideas.
- The piece of jewelry you would like to replicate.
- Any items you plan on using in your design (e.g. diamonds or gemstones).
Step 2: Cost Estimate
After our consultation we will provide you with detailed estimates based on the design, materials, and stone options we discussed. Upon agreement, we will move forward with the CAD design.
Step 3: CAD Design & Countersketch
In this step, we will work on the design right in front of you and you can make any changes you need in the
We will create a CAD rendering of your design for you to view. The renderings will show your design in a few different angles similar to the images below. If the CAD is in line with expectations of your custom jewelry design, it will be pushed to production.
Step 4: Bringing Your Design To Life
Once the design is finalized, it usually takes an average of 2-5 weeks depending on the complexity of the design. Once we receive the item from production we will add the stones at our location.
Step 5: Your Design Is Complete!
Once your custom jewelry design is complete, we will contact you to come and pick it up from our store. See below for a few examples of our work.
