When you’re looking for the unique, a piece of jewelry that no one else will be wearing or updating a family heirloom or outdated piece of jewelry, then consider creating something one-of-a-kind.
The first step in the custom jewelry process is by far the easiest. We simply need to chat to discuss your ideas and perhaps create some quick sketches together, to get a clear idea of your vision. We’ll discuss your personal style and pin down your likes and dislikes. You may have seen some things you love in magazines or on social media and we can incorporate those as well.
The second step of the process is to have our jewelry designers create a Computer Aided Design (CAD) rendering of your piece. A CAD design closely resembles the real thing, so it is at this stage that adjustments can be easily made. Rendered images of your 3D model can be emailed directly to you or can be viewed in person by visiting the store.
The computer-rendered images allow us to show you realistic views of your design as it will look when finished in the exact metal and gemstones (if any) you have chosen. After you have made all your design adjustments and have viewed the rendered images of your design, we will ask for your final approval of the 3D model.
Once you approve the CAD rendering, the designer will create an actual model using stereo Lithography technology to 'print' a full-size wax version of your design. This technology allows us to create the most intricate and complex details possible in the jewelry industry.
If you would like to see the wax prototype, just let us know and we can make it available for viewing. This prototype is full-scale and will show you the exact detail and dimensions of your project. This 3D model will allow you to see and feel your piece before we finalize and cast it.
