Turn Old Jewelry into Something New and Fashionable
Our custom jewelry design can take your old, unwanted or outdated jewelry and turn it into something uniquely your own. We don’t skimp on quality and we certainly don’t shortcut on style.
How We Design Custom Jewelry
In fact, we’re proud to say that we’ve never created a piece that wasn’t absolutely LOVED by its recipient.
So take your old jewelry — that ring from your divorce, heirloom jewelry that’s long past its prime, your mom’s old earrings that aren’t your style at all — and transform them into beautiful pieces that get compliments and get noticed.
We Work with All Materials!

The Process Is Easy
1. Start with a sample in our boutique
Bring along photos, sketches or whatever inspires you. We’ll reveal all the possibilities and review examples of actual pieces. Next, we’ll advise you on stone quality and sourcing, precious metals, comfort and wear, all while sharing options for recycled materials and sustainability, too.
2. Next, we present designs for your approval
We will create your piece and render it as a photo- realistic image by using computer-aided design (CAD). We want to get it right, so with your input we will alter a rendering, until it meets your exact expectations.
3. Three-dimensional model of your design
It’s great way for you to see if the rendering is translating to what you really want in your piece of jewelry in reality. When all is as you dreamed, our fine craftsmen are ready to go to work.
4. The piece can now be cast
Translating the design into a precious metal is a pivotal step. Most often, we use recycled gold and silver and pure platinum and palladium.
5. Next, we hand-set your stones
Our gem setters are masters of all diamond setting techniques: micro-pave, pave, channel, bead, gypsy and prong. Each stone is artfully set by hand to the exact specifications called for in your design, using extreme care to ensure quality and peace.
6. Finally, we hand-finish every detail
We slowly bring out the shine, texture and detail to perfection. But before presenting you the finished piece, we carefully carry out a detailed examination to ensure that every step of the process has yielded a design that will far exceed your expectations.
