Custom Design Process
Book a jewelry consultation with us to begin creating the perfect piece of jewelry. This initial meeting can be in-person (located in central Fort Worth) or via phone call/Zoom. Don't stress—you do not need to know anything about jewelry, diamonds, or design- you can rely on us to bridge any knowledge gaps along the way. We will talk about who the piece is for, what makes them special, and all of your ideas. Bring your Instagram inspirations, doodle/sketches, or that not-so-subtle text from your significant other spelling out exactly what they want!
We responsibly source stones just for you based on your design, ethics, desired quality, and budget. If you have any heirloom stones that you would like to use, bring them! We love incorporating sentimental elements into our custom designs whenever possible. At this meeting, you will hand-select the stone(s) that go into your design. (Out of town clientele will receive 4k quality videos and microscopic imaging of all of their stone options.)
We will combine your inspirations and specifications, with a critical eye towards durability, timelessness, and structural integrity. We draw an initial 3D CAD rendering and go through feedback/revisions until you see exactly what you have envisioned!
We fully render your CAD design into a lifelike model and send you a digital copy of all the angles. Final design adjustments are made at this stage and once we have your final approval, the design is sent to be cast!
Upon request, a 3D wax replica of your design can be printed. This allows you to see, feel, and try on your design, prior to metal casting. It is a great way for us to make sure everything is exactly to your liking! (Example of a different design)
Casting and Setting
After the design is finalized, it is cast in the fine metal of your choosing. Our master bench jewelers set each diamond and gemstone by hand and add any handcrafted details. The piece is thoroughly cleaned and polished and then your design is complete!
Upon completion, we will schedule a quick meeting for you to pick up your finished piece! We will talk about jewelry care and cleaning, provide recommendations for appraisals, and discuss insuring your pieces. Now, you or the recipient can enjoy wearing the beautifully crafted, one-of-a-kind piece!
(If you are not available to meet in person for pick up, we will schedule a phone call to discuss these topics and coordinate fully-insured and discreet shipping.)
