What is custom designed jewelry?
Custom designed jewelry is jewelry that is designed for you and with you in mind. Custom designers will ask you what type of jewelry you like and add elements of your favorite designs and incorporate them into your finished jewelry.
Custom designed jewelry is not ordered out of a catalog or mass produced.
Where do you find a custom jeweler?
There are a many jewelers that call themselves custom design jewelers which can be confusing when you first start looking. In truth many jewelers do not make their own jewelry. The large majority of jewelers order jewelry pieces from large suppliers, hence you will often see very similar designs. The jewelry industry will dictate what is fashionable for a season so you’ll see similar designs in every big box jewelry store. These designs are manufactured and are ordered from the same places.
So, where do you find a jeweler that does custom design? It takes a little digging and we alway tell people to ask these questions.
- Do you make your jewelry in house?
- Do you set your own stones? If the answer is yes, ask to see a piece they have worked on.
- Can you make something similar to this design or incorporate your elements into a new jewelry piece?
- Are you a goldsmith or do you have a goldsmith on staff?
- Do you send out your custom design to a second party?
These questions will help to determine whether they are qualified to make your piece. If they aren’t answering yes to these questions they are probably not qualified.
We work with you to make jewelry to your specifications. The most important thing is that your design elements and your story are tied to the jewelry.
