Custom Design (CAD/CAM)

Today jewelry making is very exciting! We can make almost anything we can think of using new technology now available to us. We use a process called CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Modeling). We can create lifelike pictures of your jewelry before it is made. The computer then models the wax into your ring using a 3D printer. This wax is used for casting the actual ring using the lost wax casting method. It is all very fascinating. YOU can be part of the process if you like to make your special piece of jewelry.

Just Three Steps

1. The Idea

Think of the ring that you always wanted or imagined owning. If you need help, we can show you samples of CADs and rings that we have made and rings that we are in the process of creating. This can get your creative ideas going that you never knew you had!

2. Refine and Design

Bring in pictures and ideas to discuss with us. You can also email them to us. We are here to help you create your special piece of jewelry. We do not expect you to control everything. Sometimes pieces turn out better if you let us join you in the creative process.

3. Create into Reality

Know that custom takes time. We sometimes need 2 to 3 weeks just to make a CAD picture. This is the hardest part. The computer takes 48 hours to generate a 3D wax model. Then casting, finishing, setting and polishing can take another 2 weeks. If you want the ring hand engraved, that can take 2 weeks. So the total process can take 4 to 6 weeks to complete, sometimes longer if changes are made along the way.

Walk Through the Process

Upcycle Your Estate Jewelry and Gemstones

We can custom make jewelry to reset family diamonds and other stones. Custom pieces are a great way to reuse older stones. If your gold is solid and does not have solder on it we can usually reuse your gold to cast a new piece. This works well with re-purposing old wedding bands made of gold from relatives who have passed on. Your new custom jewelry is a way to remember them everyday in your present lives. If we cannot use the gold, we can also offer you credit towards your purchase. If you have any other jewelry that you are not interested in, you can trade it in to help pay for new jewelry. Trading and selling is a good way to recycle gold, platinum and silver.

The Finer Details

Schedule an Appointment

An appointment would be greatly appreciated, either virtual or in person. Give yourself about an hour for the appointment. If a center stone is needed, the choice will need to be made before the design can be started. We require a down payment of 20% in order to get the project started. The total price will be discussed in the initial appointment. CAD price, stone price, metal price, setting and finishing will all be broken down to give you an idea of the total price. This may change as the process evolves and we can reprice it once the CAD is approved. Once the ring is casted and finished, the labor charge (CAD, setting, and engraving) is non refundable. The stones and metal are refundable for 30 days. Usually if you like the wax model, you will love the ring!
