The Custom Jewelry Process
The Initial Meeting
The first step in the custom jewelry process involves meeting with a designer to identify your personal style, share your ideas, and pin down your likes and dislikes. Bring in your family stones, outdated jewelry or pictures of pieces you’ve already seen and we’ll make sure we have a clear idea of your vision.
Once we’ve met with you and made our initial sketches, we’ll give those illustrations to our jeweler, who will create a Computer Aided Design rendering of your piece. This CAD technology analyzes and modifies your design, shape, detail and texture. Adjustments are simple to make, so please speak up!
Once you’re completely satisfied with your customized design, our jeweler will create a wax model. This 3D wax model allows you see and feel your piece before we finalize and cast it.
