CUSTOM JEWELRY

We are custom jewelers by trade. That’s how we have built our business from the ground up, so that is what we had in mind when we built our shop. We are equipped with all of the latest technology to bring your dream jewelry design to life and follow a process that ensures our clients’ total satisfaction.

STEP 1 | CAD RENDERING

We begin with the concept. Using Computer Aided Design software, we create a set of 3D images (called renders) that allow our clients to visualize what the final product will look like. Here any changes can be easily made in the computer program before moving on to the next step.

STEP 2 | WAX MOLDING

Once the final computer design is approved, the design file is plugged into a 3D printing machine. Using a wax resin material, the machine “grows” a wax mold of the piece. This mold can be physically inspected and tried on before being approved for the next step of production.

STEP 3 | CASTING

The wax mold is placed into our oven and then casted into the desired metal. Upon cooling, the raw casting is then thoroughly polished and prepped for the final stage of production. Here the client can see what the piece what will look like before any stones are set.

STEP 4 | FINISHING

In this final phase, stones are measured and selected to be set into the metal piece using a microscope to establish perfect positioning. Once all stones are set and tightened, any special textures are then added to the metal, such as engraving or milgrain. Lastly, the finished piece gets a final polishing and cleaning to bring it to its pristine final form.
