Custom Jewelry Design Frequently Asked Questions

The custom design process can be complex and confusing, especially if you’ve never commissioned jewelry before. As a result, we receive many questions about the subject. Here is a list of the most common questions we hear. If you have any that aren’t listed, don’t hesitate to contact us to learn the answers to all your queries.

Do I Need to Know a Lot About Jewelry?

To get the most out of the custom design experience, it is recommended to research your options before the consultation, such as reading about precious metal types and diamond shapes, so as to help you get a better idea of what you have in mind. Still, you can head to the appointment without knowing exactly what you want and work with our experts to design a piece that suits your needs and aesthetic preferences.

What’s The Custom Design Process?

The custom design adventure begins with a phone call. After we reserve an appointment, you’ll meet with our goldsmiths and design experts to design jewelry using CAD software. Our team will create a wax model of the piece and begin the creation process once we work out all the details.

How Long Does It Take?

The time it takes to create jewelry depends on the current number of requested items, the design's complexity, and the materials' rarity. Allot at least eight weeks if you need the jewelry by a specific time, such as a wedding band. While it probably won’t take this long, it’s best to be cautious.

Is Custom Design More Expensive?

It varies quite a bit, depending on your specifications. A large round cut diamond in a designer setting with a halo and accent stones may be more expensive than a custom solitaire, for example. Consult with us to learn more about pricing.

What Jewelry Can I Make?

You can buy most any jewelry item. Most opt for bridal jewelry, such as wedding bands and engagement rings. Our goldsmiths can also create pendants, bracelets, fashion rings, earrings, and more. You can even remake old heirloom jewelry to fit contemporary style sensibilities. We can do so in all precious metals, such as gold, sterling silver, and platinum. Really, the sky's the limit with custom design.
