We’re with you every step of the way.
The custom design process…The Custom Design process begins with your idea. Whether you have found an idea elsewhere, drawn up one or just want to describe your perfect piece of jewelry, we can sketch it for you. All you need to do is make an appointment with Noel or stop in and we’d be happy to help you get the process going.
The second step…Many men have found the option of custom design very helpful because he can design an engagement just as unique as she is. The next step in the process is carving a wax model (lost wax casting) or use CAD (computer aided design) to create the ring or pendant.
The finished product…These processes are done in-house from start to finish. Once the ring is cast into the metal of your choice then our jewelers set the stones and polish it. The custom design process is approximately one month start-to-finish. When we finish, we include a complimentary appraisal and call you to pick up your new custom jewelry.
