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.

“I went in pretty clueless about jewelry but you made be feel comfortable from start to finish. No sales pitch, they just want to work with you to make a great piece.” – Jeremy V Denver, Colorado

DESIGNS

Determine design. Through an Initial Consultation and the use of inspiration images, one of our elite custom jewelers will walk you through our design process and work with you to create a design that fits your vision.

Choosing Your Stones… As your jewelry designer in Denver, we will work with you to repurpose your heirloom jewelry or source the highest quality diamonds and gemstones for your engagement ring, handmade wedding ring, or other custom piece while maintaining your pre-established budget. Through a Stone Showing Meeting you will have the opportunity to view and compare a unique selection of diamonds and / or gemstones curated with your specific needs in mind. We are committed to functioning in a jewelry ecosystem that honors our customers, our employees, our community and our Earth. For that reason, our jewelry designers in Denver utilize conflict free diamonds and gemstones and 100% recycled metals whenever possible to create eco friendly jewelry.

Receive and Review Design Doc. Following your Initial Consultation, you will receive several unique jewelry designs (in the form of sketches) for your jewelry piece. Your proposed designs will be sent to you approximately one week following your Initial Consultation. After you have reviewed the designs for your handmade engagement ring, unique wedding ring, or other custom piece, we will make any additional adjustments and work with you until we have captured the exact design you’re looking for! We will stay in the design stage until you are completely satisfied with your unique jewelry design because we want you to be comfortable and confident before proceeding.

PRODUCTION

The Modeling Process. Once a design has been chosen and solidified, your piece will move into the modeling process. Depending on the nature of your design, our custom jewelers will either grow a wax model or create a CAD (Computer-Aided Design). You will be presented with your model and any final adjustments will be applied.

Production! Following approval, your custom jewelry piece will go into production. Depending on the time of year, the production process will last anywhere from 5 – 8 weeks.

COMPLETION

Voila! Picking up the final product. Once your jewelry piece has been completed, we’ll organize a pick up time and get your handmade engagement ring, unique wedding ring, men’s jewelry, or other custom piece to you!

ABBY SPARKS JEWELRY STRIVES FOR EXCELLENCE, QUALITY, AND SUPREME CRAFTSMANSHIP
IN BOTH THE DESIGN AND PRODUCTION PROCESSES.

We are committed to our product and our community by utilizing socially and environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. In an attempt to protect the environment, we choose both eco-friendly production processes and the most ethically sourced gems.

SUSTAINABILITY
To diminish our environmental and social impact, Abby Sparks Jewelry does its best to purchase from suppliers that source ethically refined precious metals and stones. We believe it is our ethical duty to not use conflict diamonds or gemstones in our creations, and we are strongly committed to that goal. We operate in compliance with resolutions set forth by the United Nations as well as the Kimberley Process certification. That said, we fully realize the limitations of the Kimberley Process and upon client request, we have the ability to take more extreme care in sourcing stones. We respect and value our clients’ values, so we do our best to go above and beyond to meet our clients’ sustainability needs.

MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION
Abby Sparks Jewelry aims to use sustainably sourced materials that reflect our commitment to the environment. We utilizes the finest fair-trade gems and recycled metals in all of our creations. We can repurpose stones from your heirloom pieces or you may choose from the wide array of stone that we’re happy to source.

We also love repurposing “old” fine jewelry into a “new” piece because recycling & reclaiming truly minimizes the demand for mining, thus preserving the land and doing our part to sustain our Earth. We encourage clients to bring in gemstones and metals from their own jewelry collections to be recreated into one of our unique designs. We love working with heirloom pieces and doing jewelry remodels for both the sentimental aspect as well as environmental.  Also, we will happily give you a Metal Credit applied to the cost of your custom jewelry piece for recycling your gold, platinum, sterling silver, and palladium.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT STONES
During our Stone Sourcing process, we bring your favorite stones to you so you can experience each diamond’s unique properties. We make diamond selection an easy process by only showing you the finest selection of stones, so there is no bad choice. We only use high grade, quality of diamonds and gemstones in all our pieces…after all, our name is on the jewelry as well!

We love to make alternative engagement rings too, so we’re great at using gemstones instead of the more traditional diamond options. To ensure you have the perfect piece we will talk about some of the different stone options for stones: sapphire, yellow sapphire, blue-green sapphire, peach sapphire, ruby, emerald, pink morganite, iolite, etc. and answer any question you might have.
