We meet and talk about the rough ideas for what you would like to see in your piece. Preliminary sketches are usually done to fully communicate the concept. Here we figure out the basic framework and guidelines for your design.
Next we look over images of jewelry and figure out what the inspiration is for your piece.
We discus what type of gemstone you’re dreaming of, now you get to pick out the best one. We speak to our suppliers and bring in the best selection of gemstones suited to your needs. They are all priced and tagged describing what makes each unique. We discuss the characteristics of each stone and help choose the perfect one for you.
After we have outlined a basic style, our designer will create a 3D model of your concept and email you renders. Please advise us of any changes or questions as we want to create the perfect design for you. After the design is approved we move onto the next step.
After we get the design perfect, we send the design to a 3D printer. This will give us an idea of exactly how the piece will look and we use that exact wax to mold your piece in our casting process.
Once you come in and see the wax and approve it, we can move on to casting.
We cast the wax into metal, precisely set your stones and bring the custom design to life. We also include a complimentary polish on any jewelry provided.
This is all handled by our Calgary office, and takes about two week’s time.
Once the piece is ready, we present it to you (with a box of course) and an insurance appraisal. Any jewellery that was given for ispiration is returned.
We also provide an optional customer survey that we use to improve so we can serve you better in the future.
