Custom Jewelry

How does the custom jewelry process start?

Undoubtedly, custom jewelry is an intricate and remarkable way to express personality and taste. You can wear not only an item that is exclusively made for you, but also a piece of jewelry with lots of meaning; which makes it the perfect gift for that special someone, or even to celebrate an important date.

With that said, it is important to keep in mind that the process of making these artisanal pieces starts off with a well-thought-out decision. You should try to  come to the custom jewelry professional with a complete idea, so it will be a lot easier for them to work on your item.

The drafting part of the process is a crucial moment, considered by many a vital step towards the big goal. Therefore, you need to be prepared for this moment. No matter the situation, the work you put in the first drafts will make a huge difference in the end.

How to make remarkable custom jewelry 

You might be wondering, how can I start designing my jewelry? Well, it is vital in the making of custom jewelry that the clients get involved. After all, this piece of jewelry should reflect the meaning and emotions you would like to showcase. 

One good idea is to sketch what you have in mind so our Kenny G & Company team of designers can visualize the concept. If drawing is not your forte, you can grab images from magazines or photos on the internet, so the piece can be seen properly.

There are a variety of ways to add your mark to the creating process, and one of them is by gathering references that truly speak to your idea. Is there any famous person or fictional character that wore something similar to what you have in mind? Make sure to play around with different ideas as you prepare for this step of the process, it will definitely pay off.

Follow these steps for creating a custom-made piece 

Whether you are looking for an engagement ring, wedding band, pendant, bracelet, necklace, or a different piece or set, here at Kenny G & Company Fine Jewelers you will be assisted by a team of professionals that are willing to get to know exactly what your heart desires.

One way to ensure that designers can visualize what you have in mind is during the consultation. There, you will be able to put all the tips mentioned above into practice. After that, our team will provide a “CAD,” which means a virtual customized computer-aided design, based on the information gathered. During this step, you will also be able to make changes to the product. 

Then, if requested, we develop a 3-dimensional wax of your piece, so you can touch and feel your creation with real dimensions. If everything goes as expected, then the shape will become the mold for the continuing procedures. Following that, it will go from an unfinished piece to a polished and complete version after going to the finishing department.
