Steps to Creating Custom Jewelry

According to us, the first step to making custom jewelry is always love. We enjoy the experience of creating luxury milestones in people's lives through a medium that we all love, jewelry!
During our consultation, whether online or in-store, we'll discuss the ideal piece of jewelry that you are looking for. We will go over the specific style, metals, and gems you want and then send the request to our jewelers who will create the ideal piece of jewelry you desire.Often pieces are made by hand from start to finish. Otherwise, molds are used.

How Your Jewelry Is Made When Using a Mold

  1. First, our jeweler will create a handmade mold for the custom design you desire.
  2. Next, the jeweler will take the desired precious metal, whether gold, silver, platinum, or mixed metal, liquify it, and add it to the mold.
  3. After the metal is cooled, the jeweler then cleans, files, sands, and polishes the metal. For pieces that require multiple molds such as; pendants, necklaces, bracelets, or other complex jewelry, the pieces are assembled before the cleaning process.
  4. If any gemstones are in the design, such as diamonds, rubies, sapphires, or other gems, they are then placed and fastened into the piece.
  5. The custom jewelry is then given a final polish and any plating is then added to the metal. Also, If any laser engraving or stamping is requested, this step would be completed last.
