01 Consultation

Your Ideas

We’ll go over a range of topics like gemstone cut, color, and clarity; your desires and design preferences; and ring styles and shapes. We’ll explore how such options relate to and help make decisions in apportioning your budget

Pictures

Photos really help. They give us a sense of your personality, preferences, and tastes in establishing a direction for conceptualizing ideas to fit your lifestyle. Need some inspiration? You can also take a look at a selection of our work or our catalogs.

Swatches

Choose from our palette of precious metal alloys and finishes for an additional layer of customization. For rings, try on and experience the effect different ring shank profiles, shapes, widths and depths can have on comfort.

Rough Cost

By this point, we’ll be ready to give you a rough idea of what it might cost so you can decide if custom made jewelry is right for you.

02 Design Conception

Sketches

Based on information gathered from the consultative meetings, we will distill the ideas into two sketches. We’ll discuss changes and make revisions to the sketches as needed to capture that idea from your mind’s eye.

Gemstones

Together, we’ll narrow down the characteristics important to you in a gemstone – whether it be a diamond, sapphire, ruby, or tourmaline, among others.

After the selection of your design, materials, finishes, and your preferred diamond or colored gemstone grades, we will respond within 24 hours with a quote.

A deposit will be collected should you choose to proceed.

Stone Viewing

Certifications

Today’s overreliance on the diamond certificate in making purchasing decisions can lead to false perceptions of value. At this step, experience why you should evaluate a diamond or gemstone on beauty, not solely on a spec sheet. Discover how to best achieve a balance of these characteristics within the bounds of your budget.

Compare 

Here’s where customers experience the importance of viewing their chosen diamond. See how cut, proportions, faceting, and polish, together with the 4 C’s color one’s perception of a diamond apart from what’s stated on the certification.

The last step, but also the most impactful. Ideas and images that emerged during the initial stages are shaped into form as the engagement ring, wedding band, or commemorative gift to a loved one, symbolic of your journey toward this emotional milestone.
