Custom Jewelry 101: How It  Works And What You Can Get Custom-Made

There’s nothing more exclusive than having something custom-made just for you. Combine that level of exclusivity with the lavishness of jewelry, and you've got one of the most luxurious things you can get: a bespoke, one-of-a-kind jewelry piece designed especially for you.

With the help of an expert jeweler, you can create the jewelry piece of your dreams - and it’s simpler than you think! Whether it’s a custom engagement ring, one-of-a-kind earrings, a bespoke necklace, or a unique bracelet, nothing will reflect your taste and personal style better than a custom jewelry piece.


How does custom jewelry design work?
The process of designing custom jewelry is a lot simpler than it sounds - and, it’s super fun! Here’s a quick breakdown of the straightforward process and rewarding journey to creating the jewelry of your dreams.

Step one


First, you tell us everything about the piece you want to get. Then, we create an in-scale rendering, which can be modified until you’re completely satisfied with the design.


Step two


Once the design is approved, you’ll receive a  quote based on the design concept, precious metals, and diamonds or gemstones of your choice.

Step three


Now, we begin to create the piece of your dreams. Your custom piece is completely handcrafted with the utmost care and attention to detail by our expert jewelry makers.

Step Four

Your stunning jewelry piece is complete! Now, thoroughly inspected by our quality control team, and voilà - you can bring your one-of-a-kind piece home with you.

How long does custom jewelry take?

The process of having a piece of jewelry custom-made for you is exciting and enjoyable but, at the same time, our master artisans take this process very seriously. After all, they know a custom piece will be treasured like no other, and will likely be cherished for generations to come.

That’s why they don’t rush the delicate jewelry-making process, rather they focus on creating a piece of unparalleled quality and stunning craftsmanship. That being said, depending on the complexity of the design, you can expect your piece to be ready to join your jewelry collection in about 30 days after you’ve given your final approval on the design concept.

What types of custom jewelry can I get?

Essentially, if you can think of it, we can create it. So, whether you’re after a simple customization - such as having your wedding ring engraved - or you want to create a unique piece of jewelry from scratch, don’t be afraid to let your creativity run wild!
Here are some of the options you have with custom jewelry:
  • Engrave a sweet message on a ready-made piece of jewelry to mark a special occasion.
  • Upgrade the diamonds on your favorite diamond stud earrings.
  • Make a pair of earrings extra-personal by replacing their gemstones with your birthstone.
  • Re-style a family heirloom by turning it into a brand-new jewelry piece which reflects your personal style like no other piece in your collection.
  • Create a bespoke, one-of-a-kind engagement ring to propose to your soulmate.
  • Design wedding bands which are as unique as the love you and your partner share.


Is custom-made jewelry worth it?


Absolutely! In our day and age, everything is mass-produced, so having a unique jewelry piece custom-made for you is priceless.

Not only that, but you have the creative freedom to design a piece which reflects your own unique style and expresses your personality better than any other ready-made accessory.

And, if you’re looking to get a jewelry piece custom-made for a loved one, just know there’s no better gift you could get them. After all, when you put time and effort into creating a one-of-a-kind piece for someone you love, it shows just how special that person is to you. And, you can be sure they’ll cherish their gift forever!
