Interested in a commissioned piece?
Many pieces in our jewelry collection can be customized. For example, making a certain style in a different metal, with a different stone, in a different length or width, or even with initials stamped in the back of a pendant. These are alterations to an existing style in the line, and don’t require the same amount of additional design work and consultation as custom projects. We can work with sterling silver, 14k and 18k yellow, white and rose gold to tailor a piece in the line for you. We currently work with diamonds, opals, turquoise, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and moonstone, but may be able to source additional stones. Email us or fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you.
We love working on custom design projects and commitment rings! Get in touch with your project idea using the form below, or send us an email.
About Custom Design Projects:
Custom designed pieces of jewelry are really special. However, they do tend to cost a bit more than purchasing a piece from our current jewelry collection. This is because of the time required to design and create a new style. If you have a budget range in mind for your project, please let us know so that we can work with you to create something special within that range.
Custom projects take between 3-9 weeks to create once the final design has been decided upon. This timeframe depends on what is involved in the design process and how busy our season is. However, some pieces can be turned around faster: if you need your piece by a specific date, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Once the design has been decided upon, a 50% deposit is required to begin work on a piece, with the balance due upon completion and before the piece is shipped.
We don’t have a public storefront or showroom, but we still want to work with you to create your dream custom piece. Since our clients live all over the world, we offer free 15-20 minute phone, skype, or email consultations to discuss working on a custom design project. This is a good way to go over the process and answer some initial questions about design possibilities.
Some projects require more preparation and in-depth conversations, so we also offer a one-hour design consultation via phone, skype, or (sometimes) in person. These longer design consultations are $200, which will go towards the cost of whatever your custom design project may be.
We occasionally work with heirloom stones, but will need to inspect the stones before we can begin work on the project. Sometimes this will require custom settings, so while this might cut down on the cost of the stone itself, there is added labor involved. You should have your jewelry insured by your private insurance agent. We do not insure jewelry but will provide invoices upon request. All loose, heirloom stones shipped to us for custom work, need to be insured prior to shipping.
Depending on the piece, we can sometimes work with your gold. If we can’t use your gold in the exact piece, we can recycle it and give you a credit towards your piece. However, we can only accept karat-stamped solid gold. We don’t work with any plated metals.
Let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing about your custom ideas! Email us or send us all the details below:
