Custom Design

French Quarter Elegance

Let our design experts help create your fantasy piece from drawing to completion. Our experienced team will assist you through the custom design process beginning with collaboration on design ideas to a beautifully finished keepsake piece.

Phase 1 Consultation & Quote

Every custom design and jewelry restyling begins with a conversation. During the consultation process, you will share your ideas and expectations with our jewelry designers.

Phase 2 Drawings & CAD

Our design studio will work with you to create an initial design concept. We either create a sketch on paper or generate the design using a CAD program.

Phase 3 Wax Models

Once the design has been approved we create a wax model.  In some cases, the model is created by hand cutting the wax. 

Phase 4 Approval & Casting

Once the wax model is approved by you, it is now set for casting – a process in which the wax model is placed inside plaster, melted out of
the mold to form a cavity and molten metal of your choice is poured into to create your piece.

Phase 5 Finish & Detailing

Diamonds or gemstones will be set during this step. Your crafted piece is then polished resulting in a beautifully finished creation. Before delivering to you, your custom designed jewelry is thoroughly inspected by our Quality Control Department.


Depending on the design, your personal creation normally takes anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks from consultation to completion.
