Behind the Scenes: Making Custom Jewelry
Have you ever wondered how we make custom jewelry? Here is a peek behind the curtain at the process of turning a customer's personal stone into a piece of modern heirloom jewelry.
Step 1: Communicate About the Design
Taking time to learn about our customer and what they have in mind for their custom piece is always where we start. You can call, email, or come into one of our stores to chat with our retail associates, the choice is yours. Then, we'll get more specific and work out the exact details of the design, including a quote for the time and materials we need.
Step 2: Assemble Your Materials
We love to work with customer-owned stones. There's nothing more exciting than taking something old and forgotten and making it fresh and new.
Step 3: Work It
Our expert jewelers form your pieces with great care, lovingly shaping, sanding, and hammering until the jewelry comes to life.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Once the piece is completed and polished to perfection, it is inspected by our Quality Control department who gets up close and personal to make sure it is just right. Next, our photographer gets a few glamour shots of the ring for our archive.
Step 5: The Big Reveal
The final step is to ship or have the piece picked up in our stores. The anticipation is finally over, and the piece is ready to bring you joy. Seeing you happy with our work is far and away the most rewarding part of what we do. And it always brightens our day to see your own photos of your pieces - we love to see how you bring them to life your own way.
