Custom Jewelry Guide

 

Why Custom Jewelry Design Is Vibrant, Exclusive, And Risk-Free


Imagine having a jewelry piece that has no equal! It's challenging to decide on the perfect jewelry piece when you have a picture of the perfect design in mind. Well, now you can make that dream a reality and create a unique jewelry piece to reflect your preferences or those of the person you love.
 
Customized jewelry holds sweet memories and lasting emotions  to those who craft it and those who receive it, adding extra appeal to a surprise that’s already very touching.
 
Jewelry has the power to make our personality show, and that’s one of the many reasons to own stylish jewelry tailored especially for you. So, let’s explore how you can order custom jewelry or remodel old jewelry to match your fashion style or gift to your loved ones.

 

 


How to get custom jewelry made?

Modern people want practicality and unique ways to show their identity. Whether you’re looking to uplift your wardrobe
or surprise a special someone, adding a personal touch to customized jewelry pieces only takes a few easy and straightforward steps.
 
Process
How it works

Step 1
 
This is a collaborative process where we exchange drawings, ideas, inspiration photos, and the details you want to be included in the design.
 

Step 2
 
Our designer composes a CAD (Computer-Aided Design)- detailing the fine elements of your jewelry piece, such as design, metals, and precious stones, for example.
 

Step 3
 
You have the chance to review what the final design will look like with a 3D model. Our jewelers only proceed once you’re satisfied with all details.
 

Step 4
 
Our artisans craft it, run your piece through meticulous quality control, and you enjoy a beautiful jewelry piece made to order for yourself or someone you love!
 
 

If you aren’t sure about the design, we show you what is available (possibilities truly are endless here) to get you inspired.

 
Jewelry Designer

Pick out the design

If you want custom-made jewelry such as earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, inspiration from social media and celebrities whose style you admire are great starting points. 

In case you want to surprise someone with a necklace, earrings, or a bracelet, look into this person’s style and chat with our designer about ideas.
 
On the other hand, if you want to design a fashion or custom engagement ring, you might enjoy browsing the style options before deciding on the one you want. Here are the most common engagement ring styles:

• Solitaire   • Halo   • Double halo   • Three-stone   • Bypass
• Split-shank

Jewelry gemstone



Pick out the gemstone

If you’re customizing jewelry, chances are you wish to enhance it with beautiful gems. 

And whether you want custom jewelry rings, pendants, earrings, or even custom baby jewelry, start by picking out the center stone (or side stone) to add even more life to your jewelry piece. Here are some options and why to choose them:




 

Round cut diamond
Round
This is a classic cut that maximizes the brilliance of diamonds because of its many facets, making it one of the favorite diamond cuts of all time.
Oval cut diamond

If you wish to add an extra touch to the round-shaped diamond, consider the oval cut. It’s modern and fresh without letting go of extra sparkles.
Emerald cut diamond

The emerald cut offers clear and sharp facets that look fabulous on diamonds of high clarity grading.


 
 
Radiant cut diamond

Due to extra facets, the radiant cut can scatter more light than most cuts, giving unrivaled brilliance to the square or rectangular shape of the diamond.
Cushion cut diamond

The cushion cut is popular for enhancing the reflection of a diamond. If you enjoy the final look of round and princess-cut diamonds, this cut deserves your attention.
Pear cut diamond
Pear
A mixture of the marquise and round cuts, the pear cut offers a well-defined design which appeals to modern women.


 
Marquise cut diamond
Marquise
This diamond cut originated in France, impresses with flawless symmetry, and can result in unusual customized pieces.
Princess cut diamond

Princess cut diamonds are very romantic and delicate. The sharp edges in this cut make it a brilliant option that never goes unnoticed.
Princess cut diamond
Heart
Few cuts will convey the idea of romance as much as a heart-cut diamond. The facets in this cut take meticulous work and result in eye-catching pendants and earrings.

• Yellow gold
• Rose gold
• White gold
• Platinum

And don’t worry, once you share your preferences, we provide you with custom design ideas to help you choose the one which speaks most to you. Only then will our artisans sketch it up with everything you wanted.
