    Custom Concept

    Our jewelry designers will take your ideas, drawings and images and work together with you to create a design concept. Using sophisticated design software, we first create a precise 3D model of the custom designed jewelry piece. These models are used to create strikingly realistic renderings of the piece, allowing you to verify the design’s accuracy with confidence.

    Computer Rendering

    Jewelry is not flat. It has dimensions and textures that vary based upon perspective. Evaluating a custom made jewelry design can be difficult unless these qualities are represented. For this reason, our graphic artists work from the 3D model to create a life-like sample image. You can review the design with confidence and gain a realistic impression of your finished piece. Any desired changes may be discussed and implemented to your complete satisfaction. No other technique has proven to be more effective in capturing your vision than the Custom Jewelry Design Process.

  • Jewelry Approval

    Final Approval

    Upon your final approval, our production team will cast your design in the recycled precious metal of your choice. Your gemstones are then meticulously set by our expert craftsmen. Your beautifully finished piece is then thoroughly inspected by our Quality Assurance team and shipped in our distinctive, eco-friendly packaging.
