Custom jewelry design puts you in charge! You are the designer and you are at the front wheel of your creation. With the help of our team, we work with you to provide guidance, while you let your creativity take flight in order to create your very own, unique jewelry piece.
As exciting as it may be to have complete creative control over your design, constructing a jewelry design from scratch could be overwhelming, and you might not know where to start.
Thankfully, GB Jewelry is here to help! Here are the 6 things you need to know in order to create your own one-of-a-kind piece:
1. Book A Free Consultation
The first stop on your custom design journey is to book a free consultation with an experienced designer. This appointment will allow you to explain your vision so your expert jewelry designer can gather what they need in order to create the piece of your dreams. Bring photos, drawings, screenshots, anything that can help your designer grasp the look and feel you are trying to accomplish. Another good place to start is our website, anything you see can be customized.
2. Be Honest
Once you have approved your renders, it’s time for our expert jewelers to bring your design to life. We will take your renders and transform them into a 3D wax model for you to try on. The coolest part? We can even place your ideal stones on top of the wax model to give you the ultimate look and feel of the piece. It’s important to use this 3D wax model to gain perspective on how your jewelry piece will look once it is created.
You will want to pay attention during this process and be certain about your likes and dislikes. Use the 3D-model as an opportunity to voice your opinions about your design. We don’t want to be stuck in a situation where you dislike your design, so be honest!
3. Trust Your Expert Jewelry Designer
Our expert jewelry designers initiate the use of our custom jewelry design 3D wax model, which lets you try on and preview your new jewelry. With this technology, it’s evident that they know what they are doing! Use their knowledge, expertise and 3D wax model to make any final changes before you finally get your GB Jewelry Creation.
It’s also important to make sure you like the look and feel of your piece in this wax model. If there is something you would like to change, now is your chance to speak up. Trust your designer to accept your feedback and take your thoughts into consideration when finishing the piece.
4. Get Ready To See Your Piece Firsthand
The final step! Your ring is printed in a 3D printer which is then cast into gold . The metal is then shined, textured, and detailed to match your design requests. Our master gem-setter will then set each stone flawlessly into the setting and a final inspection of accuracy and quality will be taken. At last, you will be presented with the custom design jewelry of your dreams… are you ready?
5. Ask Questions!
As enticing as this process may sound, we know you may still have some questions. Here are some common FAQs that will help before, during and after your custom design process:
How much does custom jewelry cost?
No matter whether you want to redesign your grandmother’s necklace, or you want to start from scratch to make the perfect bracelet, the budget is up to you! You have the option to pick the stones, materials and complexity that match your style and what works for your wallet!
What is possible?
Anything is possible! You can create your own engagement rings, necklaces, earrings, hairpins, cufflinks… if you desire it then we will make it! Go crazy with colors, gems or diamonds and we will work with you to make your vision happen.
Can a jeweler copy a ring?
The answer is both yes and no. We are able to recreate universal styles to your liking in the color you wish. What we cannot do is produce an exact copy of a specific ring that you saw in another store previously. If you bring in a few ideas of the rings you like, then our designer will work with you to personalize them and truly tie in your style and your personal story.
