Custom Jewelry Design
With Custom Design, there's no limit to designing your own piece. We specialize in custom jewelry design and enjoy crafting exclusive pieces for our clients. You may choose to use your heirloom or existing pieces of jewelry to create a fresh new piece that fits your style. Or you may choose to start from scratch. If so, we'll collaborate with you on a custom design suited to your taste and budget.
When you hear the words, Custom Design, you may think the cost will be extreme, but that's not the case at all. At AVANT GARDE Jewelers you will actually pay less for creating your own custom design because your custom piece of jewelry is made exclusively for you, and bypasses the "designer-to-retailer mark-up".
- 1. We'll start with an in-store consultation and discuss what you have in mind and get those creative juices flowing! You're welcome to bring along any drawings, photos, Pinterest boards, or even share an actual piece of jewelry that excites you! We'll chat about all of the possibilities including stone and metal choices. Next we'll do as many sketches with you until we obtain the look and confirm your special design idea.
- 2. Then we'll create a wax mold and/or a CAD, (computer-aided design), depending on the design within days of consultation. Upon your inspection we'll then fine tune your custom design until you're happy and ready to continue.
- 3. Next step is casting your design, which can be done by using our metal or yours. It's your preference. You may then opt to see the raw casting or the metal polished before the final step.
- 4. Our master jewelers will then finish your custom design by using their stone setting expertise for your diamonds and/or gemstones, and highlight the shine, texture and detail to your perfected custom piece of jewelry.
With your jewelry design idea and our expertise, creating and capturing your very own family heirloom is such a rewarding experience! So give us a call and make an appointment for a free consultation.
