Owner and in-house jeweler, Alex, is a master of both old-world and innovative, contemporary techniques. Whether you’re drawn to vintage or more modern styles, we’ll work with you to create exactly what you’re imagining. We can work with any budget; we also offer financing to help our clients turn their vision into reality. Some of our clients are looking to celebrate a symbol of personal significance, to match a certain dress, or even to complement the color of their eyes. Others just realize that being involved in the design process makes it far more personal, meaningful and fun.
1. START WITH A SIMPLE CONSULTATION IN OUR STORE
Bring along photos, sketches or whatever inspires you. We’ll review all the possibilities, and even give examples of actual pieces if possible. Next, we’ll advise you on stone quality and sourcing, precious metals, comfort and wear. If you have diamonds or other precious stones you'd like to use, bring them. We will then proceed with any research if need be.
2. NEXT, WE PRESENT AN ESTIMATE FOR YOUR APPROVAL
We will call you with the final details of your piece and how much it will be to create. All our estimates carry no obligation and are completely complimentary. If you approve the estimate, we require 50% deposit before proceeding, unless otherwise noted by Alex.
3. NOW, YOU GET TO SEE A THREE-DIMENSIONAL MODEL OF YOUR DESIGN
It’s a great way for you to see if your idea is translating into what you really want! You will get a chance to see and (carefully!) hold a 3D wax of what could be your new piece of jewelry. This is where the editing process takes place. We can make changes to the design in this stage before we turn it to reality. When all is as you dreamed, everything will be ready to go to work.
4. THE PIECE CAN NOW BE CAST
Translating the design into a precious metal is a pivotal step. Once this step is complete, Alex will be able to set any stones or diamonds into the newly-made piece. Each stone is artfully set by hand to the exact specifications called for in your design, using extreme care to ensure quality and peace.
5. FINALLY, WE HAND-FINISH EVERY DETAIL
Alex will slowly bring out the shine, texture and detail to perfection on any piece. Before presenting you the final product, we carefully carry out a detailed examination to ensure that every step of the process has yielded a design that will far exceed your expectations.
