Design Your Own Custom Jewelry

custom-ring-design

Whether you’re thinking of popping the question, searching for the perfect wedding band or anniversary ring to complement your engagement ring, or looking for a meaningful gift for that special someone, you are a candidate for custom jewelry.

Custom jewelry is completely unique, designed from scratch, and each design is used only once. When you can’t find exactly what you want (like an updated version of a family heirloom), or you want to transform your diamond or gemstone pieces with a fresh new design, that’s where we come in. We specialize in custom jewelry design and we can bring your idea to life.

Design Process
Our custom design process takes place on-site in our showroom. You’ll work with our in-house jewelry designer who can help you create a one-of-kind piece with an heirloom or new stone. Search our loose diamond collection by diamond shape and carat weight to find a beautiful stone for your custom piece, or bring in a photo of your dream ring or pendant to get started.

After an initial conversation to talk through your custom design and establish your goals and budget, one of our staff will create a full scale design of your custom piece. Once you approve the design, we can create a wax model for you to experience the design in 3D—the wax model is an exact replica of the finished product. With approval, your design is cast in gold or platinum, stones are set by hand, and you’ll get to see the gorgeous final product.

Allow about six to eight weeks from the time you first consult with our designer to the time the finished jewelry is placed in your hand. That timeline includes multiple consultations to arrive at the final design, creation of the final model, and time to handcraft the final piece of jewelry.

Custom Bridal Designs
for custom rings is at an all-time high, and more soon-to-be-engaged couples are shopping for rings together. We can help you design your own custom engagement ring or wedding set to reflect your style and personalize your wedding day. Complete your wedding look with a custom diamond necklace or bracelet, and consider thanking each member of your bridal party with a custom jewelry gift. Diamond initial pendants or a gemstone pendant in one of your wedding colors make a meaningful gift and will remind them of all that you share.

Custom Gifts
For special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, or holidays, choose a gift that will last. Custom necklaces, pendants, and earrings all make great presents for life’s celebrations. We can help you create a custom colored gemstone piece, or update bridal jewelry with a larger stone or new setting. A piece of custom jewelry will create lasting memories and be cherished for years to come.

Spring is in the air, and now is an ideal time to deep clean your diamond rings and jewelry to ensure that your pieces remain spotless and sparkling. Our tips for cleaning, maintenance, and storage will help you preserve and protect your diamonds, gemstones, and jewelry.

Professional Cleaning
Your wedding ring is with you most of the time, and therefore exposed to elements such as garden dirt, hand soap, lotion, and harsh cleaning chemicals. We recommend a professional cleaning of your wedding ring every six months, and a professional cleaning for other pieces every 12 months.

Online or In-Store? Where to Buy Your Diamond

Online or In-Store? Where to Buy Your Diamond

When you purchase a diamond online, you’re essentially buying an image from an anonymous seller. Many online retailers act as a middleman for diamond brokers, with no physical inventory of their own. Shopping online means you’re not seeing the stone in person, and a diamond in isolation always looks flawless.

To discover the beauty of a diamond, it must be compared and contrasted to other stones to help you see subtle differences that impact value. For example, two diamonds with the cut grade of Excellent may reflect light very differently, even though their certificates appear identical. A local diamond expert, someone who has looked at thousands of diamonds and understands the skill required to cut a diamond to ideal proportions, can distinguish a great stone from an average stone.
