The Custom Design Process

Step 0: Pre-visualization

This optional stage is entirely up to you. It will definitely help if you know the basic details of what you're looking for, such as metal color, stone shape, and the type of item... but it's OK if you haven't decided yet!

Step 1: Initial Consultation

In this stage, our designer will sit down with you and hash out all the details. Through this process we can develop a basic sketch of the design, and provide a price estimate.

Step 2: Proofs

If we are providing a center stone for you, we'll start by having you select your favorite from a few different options. We will next produce a 3-D rendering that will give you a detailed preview of the finished product. If you see anything that you'd like to change, we can make the necessary revisions before going ahead.

Step 3: Wax Model

Since we use the "lost wax" casting process, the first stage is a wax model of the final product. If you'd like to see this model before we proceed, it can be an extremely accurate preview. We can still make some minor revisions before we go ahead.

Step 4: Casting and Finishing

You sit back and relax while our expert jewelry artisans create the piece to your specifications.

Step 5: Finished Product

Hooray, your item is ready! It's like a dream come true, all thanks to the marvels of custom design.
