Custom Jewelry Designs
We specialize in unique custom designs
Whether you have a general or specific idea in mind you need a jewelry designer and a goldsmith.
A designer who can define your idea and sketch it on paper, engineer it to be durable and secure, then the goldsmith to bring the design skillfully to life.
Do you have an idea for an original new custom design? We have two ways to create the perfect
piece of jewelry for you.
First, New Custom Design. We can create you a new custom design from scratch using your materials or we can provide the gemstones, platinum, gold or silver for your new creation.
Second, Restyled Jewelry. We specialize in this type of work. Using your gemstones we can customize jewelry from our vendor catalogs. This type of restyling is often more economical than starting a job from scratch. Do you want to change to white gold or rose gold from yellow? We can choose from literally thousands of pre-made jewelry mountings without stones. We then take your diamonds or colored gemstones and set them together and end up with a very creative & exciting piece of new jewelry.
Take the picture below for example. You may have a loose pearl that you picked up while on a vacation in Hawaii 5 years ago. This pearl has been in the bottom of your jewelry box all this time. Choose a ring mounting from our catalog, add a ruby from that piece of jewelry your Grandmother left you. Now you have a great new piece of jewelry to enjoy. One that has very special meaning to you.
