CUSTOM DESIGN

Is your jewelry box full of out-of-date or broken jewelry?
Is the family heirloom your grandmother cherished not quite your style?
Whatever your dilemma, we can design something you will actually wear, keeping the original gemstones or metal or just the concept of the piece by re-creating it from scratch.

 

Below are a few of our Custom Designs, showing the Before and After photos and a brief description.

 

Bring in your ideas or a sketch along with your jewelry piece and we will create something beautiful Just For You!

BEFORE: Our Customer's Filigree Diamond Ring
was worn in the shoulders beyond repair.
We found an 18K Antique Ring mounting
(with original engraving from 1914) that she loved.


AFTER: We re-mounted her Diamond complete
with bezel into the Antique Ring,
retaining most of the engraving
which gives it some extra character.
Lastly it was cleaned and polished . . . beautiful!
What do you think?

Turn a Signet Ring into a
recognition of years of service
for an organization or business.
This can become a tradition
as it has for our local hospital.
Diamonds or other gemstones can be added
to the shoulders as well as
personalized engraving inside the ring.

Before: Customer's 14K two-tone Wedding Set
was very worn and broken with missing diamonds.


After: We replaced the illusion head, re-tipped all prongs, built up the underside of the Engagement Ring and soldered the rings together, making a heavier shank. Lastly, a clean and polish and her set is better than new!

 

What can we do to brighten your jewelry and broaden your smile?

Our Customer's white gold filigree Ring was very worn and broken. We repaired the shank where it was broken, built up the bottom of the shank to make it heavier, re-tipped the prongs and deep cleaned/polished and rhodium plated it.

Quite a difference, don't you think?


We can make your jewelry beautiful again.
