Yes. A one of a kind piece made here in town with our craftsmanship and expertise tends to be more expensive than stock, mass-manufactured pieces.
Custom pieces usually start around $1,800 - $2,000 for a typical engagement ring, slightly less for a pendant or pair of earrings.
The best metal for a custom ring depends on lifestyle as well as what is most visually appealing to each individual. Softer metals, like rose gold and silver, tend to be less durable than white gold. Luckily, we're pretty good at finding the perfect balance between design elements and structural integrity regardless of the desired metal(s).
We guarantee our work for the life of the piece with the exception of normal/expected wear and tear.
The best way to care for your jewelry at home is by soaking it in warm water with dawn dish soap, and then softly scrubbing it with a toothbrush. We also recommend bringing pieces in to an official, trusted jeweler once or twice a year to check stones and give a complimentary thorough deep cleaning. The only exception to this rule is pearl strands. The stringing cord must be kept dry as it will slowly soften and deteriorate.
Payment options are most certainly available! Clients can come in and make incremental payments throughout the custom process, however we do not deliver the finished piece until the balance is 100% paid in full.
The custom process can take anywhere from 4 weeks to 3-4 months. We like our clients to be involved in the design and casting process, therefore we tend to base our schedule around theirs.
