Steps of Custom Design
Create unique one of a kind jewelry pieces, designed specifically for you.
Transform your existing inherited jewelry into pieces you will wear and hand down for generations to come. Jewelry is personal and often symbolic of special chapters in our lives. It's an honor to guide clients through the process of custom design, by styling and customizing jewelry for each individual and their personal style.
Jewelry is meant to be worn and should feel like a part of you.
Meet Kyla for a Private Consultation
It all begins with a private consultation with Kyla, where you can discuss your wishes, inspirations and price range. During this meeting, Kyla will answer any questions you may have, while also educating you about the precious metals, diamonds, and gemstones you can choose from. Kyla enjoys getting to know each client to discuss your personality and style. Then the jewelry piece is designed with your individual style in mind.
For both international or domestic customers, the gift of technology allows for fluid video call consultations.
After brainstorming with you to understand your ideas and inspirations, Kyla will use her expertise to source the finest diamonds and gemstones to fit your specific style, design and budget. The design will then be created - this design may vary from a rough sketch up to a 3D render on the computer according to your needs. After you review and approve the design details, Kyla will give you a final price estimate, after which there will be a 50%-100% deposit due in order to secure the one of a kind gemstone.
Now it is time to create your bespoke jewelry piece. Kyla will normally need around 3-8 weeks to create your piece, but the timing for each piece is different. Each jewelry piece is handcrafted with the greatest attention for detail. For certain custom pieces, a wax model is created allowing the client to literally see the creation coming to life. This step is not always necessary but may be preferred if a design is particularly intricate or the clients wants more assurance that the piece is what they envisioned.
Once your bespoke jewelry piece is finished, the official gold hallmark is stamped inside the piece and there can also be a personal engraving added which we will discuss and plan in the very first consultation.
A final check and polish will be done to make sure everything is perfect. Your piece will be securely packed in our packaging ready for you to collect or for us to insured ship to you. As an added value, we provide an appraisal and photograph of each piece for your personal jewelry insurance and safekeeping.
You are part of each step in the process so that your expectations are met.
