Inquire at your nearest location for the expected timeline, from the first design to the finished product. If you need a piece by a certain date, whether it be your wedding or a special anniversary, this can help you plan ahead of time.
Can this happen at any location or only certain stores?
All of our stores are able to create custom items for clients. Many people come in with specific ideas in mind, while others show us a pre-existing piece they would like updated—and we’re happy to oblige and create a memorable, new jewelry design every time! Anything, from matching a diamond to a side stone to creating a brilliant piece from scratch, is within our realm.
What are the steps to creating a customized piece of jewelry?
The first step will always be brainstorming design ideas, which are either brought in by clients or created during consultations with our experts. We then work with our design studio to come up with a quote for the piece. After approval, we move on to computer rendering to scale and make adjustments where needed and requested. From there, we are able to show a life-size wax model with 3D printing before proceeding to the final metal casting steps. After the design is sent off, it takes around 3 weeks to complete, give or take a few, depending on the complexity of the piece.
