Custom Design Process

1st Meeting: Design

We will meet to go over your project ideas in detail and decide if we would both like to go forward with working together to complete the design. There is no charge for this meeting. At this time we would decide on a general budget and time frame. I will also do any measuring or sizing I need, assess and document condition size and quality of existing stones to be used and/or scrap metal value. This metal can be used as credit towards your project, however I cannot re-use the metal in a new piece for you.

2nd Meeting: Approval of Sketches or Waxes

At this meeting I will present to you sketches, waxes or metal models to finalize the design. All details and final edits will de determined during the course of this meeting. After this meeting, the only adjustments will be for fit. A final budget will be established at this time, and a 50% deposit will be due.

Third Meeting: Pick up your piece

At this last meeting we will make any final sizing adjustments and I look forward to seeing you very happy with your finished piece. I will photograph your piece, and provide an approximate value that can be used for insurance purposes.

How long does this take?

The length of time for this process will vary depending on the complexity of the project and the season. Our busiest seasons are around Valentines Day, Mothers Day and December Holidays. Generally speaking I spend 2-3 weeks on the initial design concepts and 2-6 weeks completing the piece. A 3-12 week time frame is required for any one of a kind piece. I am always happy to work with my customer to meet a specific deadline when needed.

 Other Frequently asked Questions about Custom Work:

Can I reuse my gold or stones?

Yes, I can credit you for the scrap value of your precious metals. Depending on the condition of diamonds or gemstones we can use or integrate your stones into a new piece.

How much will this cost?

Average project costs range from $1000 for simple designs to $3000 for very complex pieces. Cost is determined by many factors including the amount of time spent in the design process, number os stones to be set, complexity and degree of difficulty in executing design, metals used, and other factors. I can work toward a specific budget when necessary.
