Custom JewelryFor centuries, jewelry was created one piece at a time, for one person at a time. We still like to make jewelry that way. Our designers, artisans, and setters will help you create something that nobody else in this world has – something you can hand down for generations. Custom jewelry is specially designed to fit the specific preferences of a person ordering it or those of the person receiving it as a gift. Because it is one-of-a-kind, a piece of custom jewelry never goes out of style. People prefer custom designs because they enjoy having something unique. Also, some people have an idea in mind of something they want, but they cannot find exactly what they envision already made. At A&J Jewelers, our team works together with you to walk you through every step of the process and make sure the final product is exactly what you want. While some people create custom jewelry from scratch, others prefer to repurpose old jewelry. Perhaps you have an heirloom or another special piece of jewelry that is broken or not your style. If so, the precious metal or gemstone jewelry can be used to create something new and beautiful that is just what you want, or it can be a special gift for a loved one. For example, maybe you inherited a ring that was special to your grandmother but is not quite your style or size. We can use every part of your grandmother’s ring and turn it into something different that is completely you. Our team can also do this with earrings, necklaces, bracelets and more. Many people wonder how the custom design process works with jewelry. A&J Jewelers has a three-step process for jewelry redesign or new designs. The three steps are essential to us to ensure your complete satisfaction. While we work efficiently, we never rush through orders or cut corners. Custom jewelry is meant to be deeply meaningful, and that meaning can span decades or centuries when pieces become heirlooms. Our team recognizes and appreciates this. These are the steps in the design process:
Every piece of jewelry begins with a story. What is the memory, event, or milestone that brought you to this moment? We’ll explore these ideas with you, and that will be the beginning of your journey to create a custom piece of jewelry. From there, we will design a 2D CAD drawing of your idea.
Once you are pleased with the drawing of your idea and the design is clear, we will utilize a 3D printer to create a prototype made from wax and resin for you to approve.
Upon your approval of the final prototype, the artisan work begins. We will cast and form your metals, match and set gemstones, then polish and finish your piece to perfection. You will have a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry like no other.Two key reasons for choosing custom engagement rings or custom wedding rings are to reflect your partner’s personality or show what the person means to you. If your partner has specific preferences, incorporating those into a custom design shows that you care. Even if your partner does not specify any personal preferences, there are ways to capture the things you appreciate about your loved one in design attributes. If the thought of designing a custom wedding band or engagement ring seems daunting, rest assured that we make the process smoother. Our team can help you identify special attributes, convey a message or turn your partner’s preferences into something unique that will be treasured forever. We will help take the nervousness out of the design process for custom engagement rings and will be here with you each step of the way to make your special day even more memorable and to give you peace of mind.
