What is the Process to Custom Make Jewelry?

The journey to custom make jewelry varies depending on the design and intricacy. The custom design process typically takes 4-6 weeks and will include a combination of sketches, CAD images, waxes, casting, setting and cleaning. The result is a beautiful piece of jewelry that you’ve personalized to express your love and devotion.

Steven Singer Jewelers has over 1000 styles of engagement rings, wedding bands, and other jewelry. That sounds like a lot right? It is! Engagement rings range from classic and timeless, vintage and art deco, contemporary and modern to all fashions in between. With that being said, if you still can’t find the perfect piece of jewelry, it can be custom made! Custom making an engagement ring or piece of jewelry can seem a little daunting with its intricate process but it’s well worth it in the end. Plus, it’s a lot of fun!

When starting the customization process for a piece of jewelry, it is best to have inspiration photos of styles and designs that are similar to what you are looking to achieve. Rough sketches are then drawn to start bringing your vision to life. Communication is key when custom making a piece of jewelry. Both you and your jeweler need to visually understand what the outcome will look like. After nailing down the details, CAD images are created and approved by you. The CAD images are then used to create a wax mold. After the wax is approved it is then cast in either gold, platinum or any other preferred metal type. The casting then needs to be cleaned, polished and have any diamonds set. Finishing touches are now done, resulting in your dream ring or piece of jewelry!
