Custom Jewelry made in Denver

Our Custom Jewelry Design Process

Making custom jewelry means that you get to design your own jewelry exactly how you want it. You can design your own necklace, make your own bracelet or build an engagement ring from scratch. Our custom jewelers are designers, engineers, and gemologists all in one and we’re here to bring your vision to life.

01

Design Meeting

Book a meeting with a jewelry designer to plan the perfect engagement ring. We’ll give you a call to talk about your vision and budget (financing available). Next, you’ll come in for a 1 hour meeting. Don’t stress—you don’t need to know anything about jewelry, diamonds, or design (you can rely on us for that). We’ll talk about who the ring is for, what makes them special, and any of your ideas. We’ve got complimentary beer and whiskey to help get your creative process flowing.

Sketching & Designs

We’ll take all of your inspiration, ideas, and specifications and bring them to life on paper, with a critical eye toward durability, timeless design, structural integrity, and staying within your budget. You’ll receive 3-5 sketches initially, and we’ll go through feedback and revisions until you get exactly what you envisioned. We truly want you to love your design.

Diamonds & Gemstones

We responsibly source stones just for you based on your design, ethics, desired quality and budget. At this meeting, you’ll get to see, feel, and hand select each stone that goes into your ring. PS: We’ll never show you stones that are out of your price range.

Engineering

We’ll precisely engineer and architect your design into a 3D CAD model and send you a digital rendering of all angles for your approval. We take the 3D concept to metal and make a casting of your ring. We hand set your stones, add any handcrafted details, polish the ring and your design is complete.

Delivery

You’ll come in for a 30 minute meeting to pick up the ring. We’ll talk about care and cleaning, provide an appraisal, ring insurance info, and documentation on stones. We like to care for our rings for life, and we’ll plan on seeing you once a year to clean the ring and inspect for any wear and tear.
