Before we begin, we encourage you to look at everything we have in-store to gather ideas about your personal style. Then, we sit down and discuss the vision for your unique piece of jewelry. This is one of the most important steps as we explore what you've been envisioning and make sure we know every detail.
This step also occurs during the initial consultation. For the gemstones we keep in-store, we like to have various grades, from low to high because some customers prefer lower grades as they have more character. We also have magnification available so you can look deeper into the stone and see its intricate characteristics. If you'd like help sourcing a particular gemstone, we will order it with specific preferences for shape, cut and grade.
After we fully understand your vision, we create several hand-drawn designs and continue to create more concepts until the design is exactly how you want it. Sometimes, customers will even take the pen into their own hands and draw something, which we will just adjust and redraw! Once the drawing is perfect, we replicate it in CAD to get exact geometric dimensions and provide you with the most accurate representation of your piece.
Finally, we arrive at the most exciting part of the process - creation. We will use a design favorite, the Grace Signature Solitaire, as an example. This ring is a single stone in a bezel setting. First, we solder the shank, which is the band of the ring, to the bezel, which holds the gemstone. Once the foundation is complete, we set the stone. We then place the stone in the bezel, and hammer in a circle around the bezel until it is flush tightly against the stone.
