Discuss Your Ideas

1. Discuss Your Ideas

Whether you have a photo of exactly what you would like or you’ve never stepped foot in a jewelry store before, we’re here to tailor your experience based on you.  Bruce, with his design and gemology expertise, will discuss any ideas you have and make some suggestions of his own until a design begins to take shape.  You would be amazed at how the vaguest of ideas can bloom into a beautiful design!

2. Choose Your Gemstone

Bruce’s trained eye is here to find your perfect gemstone. More often than not, this means you’ll be picking out a diamond. We narrow down a selection according to your specifications and then provide a range of options for you to examine firsthand.  Bruce will be right by your side to inform you about the characteristics of each stone so that you’re confident in your choice.

Finalize Your Design

3. Finalize Your Design

Now that you have your gemstone(s) and design, you’ll receive CADs within a few days. Let us know if any aspect of the design needs to be altered; we can resend new CADs until you’re thrilled with what you see.  A wax version of your design will be 3D printed so that you can hold it in your hands and examine every angle.  Once we have your approval, we will begin handcrafting your custom piece in our workshop!
