Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Custom Design & Jewelry Restyling


Jewelry reminds us of special moments and beautiful memories. It can make us think of a person, a place, or a day that’s forever in our hearts thanks to it. And some of these pieces can be made even more meaningful with custom-design.
Custom design is the perfect opportunity to participate in jewelry making from beginning to end. Whether you want to design something for yourself or surprise a special someone, today, we’ll explore ways of creating your own signature piece.



How to get custom jewelry made?

Let’s have a chat so that we can learn your inspiration for the piece. The smallest details are important to us. Here’s what you should expect from custom design: 

Step 1 - This is a creative process where we exchange ideas, inspiration, photos, or any other details you might want in the design.

Step 2 - Our designers create a CAD or wax model detailing the subtler elements of your jewelry piece—from metals to precious stones or engravings.

Step 3 - You can review what the final design will look like. Our jewelers only proceed once you’re satisfied with all details.

Step 4 - Our artisans get to work, and you can enjoy a beautiful jewelry piece made to order for yourself or someone you love!


When to consider custom design?

For the past decade, the jewelry industry has seen a surge of people looking to invest in jewelry pieces that are super exclusive and far from mass-produced. What makes custom jewelry so uniquely special is the personal touch that is stamped into each piece. Here are different scenarios where you won’t regret customizing jewelry:

  • You have a family heirloom you love, but it doesn’t match your style.
  • You’d like to add your personal touch to something you liked in our showcase.
  • You have something specific in mind for a special someone.
  • You want an exclusive engagement ring or wedding band.
  • You’d like to have a matching set for your favorite jewelry piece.
  • You’d like to redesign a jewelry piece you don’t like.
  • This is a creative process where we exchange ideas, inspiration, photos, or any other details you might want in the design.


Jewelry Restyling

Now, if you have a family heirloom which has been damaged or is accumulating dust, you might be surprised at how many remodeling possibilities are available to you.
You can refresh and update old pieces to craft engagement rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and much more! When you opt for this type of service, you are the only person who will have that piece in the entire world.
Bring old pieces back to life by redesigning them entirely. Here are just some of the many possibilities you can do with jewelry redesign:


  • Make a pendant out of a ring.
  • Reset diamonds or gemstones from old rings to make a new engagement ring.
  • Use a pearl string to create a unique jewelry set.
  • Add a pop of color by replacing gemstones with old jewelry pieces.
  • Boost the center stone in your engagement ring with a halo of diamonds.
  • Transform the look of old jewelry with new gemstones.
  • Craft twin pendants for best friends with a pair of earrings.
  • Make bracelets out of broken necklaces.
  • Upgrade your engagement ring.
  • Make bracelets out of chain necklaces.
  • Replate white gold jewelry to bring it to a new shine.

These are just some of the many ideas you can use to make old jewelry pieces look new. Visit us for a personalized evaluation of what you can do about an old piece.
Whether you want to custom design bridal jewelry or fashion jewelry, the result is always something rare that no other person in the world will ever wear. If you’re customizing a gift, you’ll impress someone you love with something they can’t get anywhere else in the world. How special is that?
