We understand that such a large purchase can feel intimidating at first, and we are here to help guide you through. One of the main things to remember here is that no matter what you decide, my goal as a member of Jewelers of America, is to provide you with professionalism and adherence to high ethical, social and environmental standards. I am happy to educate you on your options, so you can make the best decision for you.
Here are some of the steps we go through when we start a custom project, just to give you an idea of how the process goes at our free consultations...
We ask if you have a timeline.
Custom projects vary in the amount of time it will take to complete them. We ask that you plan for 5-6 weeks from start to finish, to allow room for the project to be completed.
We talk about design inspiration.
Through custom design, we can take pieces of one jewelry piece, and add details of another, or design something totally unique to create your perfect piece of custom fine jewelry. If you have photos available of examples of fine jewelry that you like, please bring these with you to the consultation!
We discuss your budget.
This one can be tricky, a lot of times, people don't have a gauge for how much something may cost, and that's totally normal! To help make it easier, at this point, we invite you to meet with us during a consultation to discuss details, and narrow down options. We are experts at determining the best way to make a dream come true and stay in budget.
Many times, our clients have an idea of stylistic elements they would like to see influence the finished product. This helps ensure that our first 3D CAD render hits the nail on the head in terms of their dream piece of jewelry.
Once we have chosen a general design, and gemstones (if applicable), and have the ring size, we align your values, what fits in your budget, and our design knowledge together. After specifically determining what we are designing, we officially move forward with our custom project.

We take a $550 deposit, which is non-refundable and will be applied to the total cost of your custom piece jewelry, and create a 3D rendering in CAD. This gives you an accurate idea of what the finished jewelry piece will look like, and shows the piece from several different angles. The $550 CAD deposit covers the one of a kind design in CAD, and two minor design edits. While rare, sometimes the client has a change of heart on their dream piece at this point.
In order to best serve our clients and honor our fair pricing, we charge at a rate of $200 an hour for design revisions past the inital and 2 edits, or for a completely new design revision.
We make your jewelry!
After approval of the rendering, we begin building you your dream piece of jewelry! The CAD is made physical by carving a wax model, which then is used to create a mold, and hot metal is poured in and takes the shape of your ring! The ring is then sent to the La OM Studio, where we set the stones by hand.
Please note, the custom piece will not move into production until a payment option has been finalized. See our policies page for more information on this.
