WHY CUSTOM?

The beauty of custom jewelry design is its ability to reflect your unique perspective in a wearable piece of art made specifically for you. And that is truly special.

THE CUSTOM DESIGN PROCESS


It can be the most personal expression of your individuality. It tells your story. It can combine vintage and contemporary in a piece with sentimental value and fashion-forward style. At Schmitt Jewelers, we can create one-of-a-kind custom jewelry using gemstones and pieces that you already own, or craft original designs based on your imagination and our creativity.

DISCOVERY

From the first time you meet with us to discuss your jewelry ideas until the moment you hold your finished piece in your hand, we’re here to listen and guide your custom experience. The first step in the custom design process is Discovery; our initial consultation to share ideas, identify your style, and determine the kind of jewelry you’ll love wearing. During this time, it’s common to change direction. And that’s okay! Often, we’ll sketch some of those ideas right along with you. Once you’re confident we understand your mindset, we will move on to the next phase. At this point, we can provide you an approximate cost for the entire project so there are no surprises! At Schmitt Jewelers, we have one goal and only one goal: To deliver a piece of jewelry that reflects exactly what you had in mind.

THE PROCESS


The CAD

The second part of the custom jewelry design experience is when Schmitt Jewelers transforms your ideas using our CAD system; a state-of-the-art computer-aided design software that brings your piece to life on our computer, detailing its form, shape, gemstone position, and texture. Based on our discovery phase, our in-house CAD designer will develop a series of renderings of the finished product. You’ll have the opportunity to view several perspectives of your custom piece, and adjustments can easily be made at this stage of development.

The Model

Once we receive some of your input, we’ll produce a model using our 3D printer or our mill. At this stage you will be able to see an actual scale model prior to it going to the next phase, casting. In addition, after the CAD and Modeling work is complete, we have a pretty good idea of what it will take to create.

Cast. Set. Finish!

Like all the other steps in the process, our casting work is done right here in our store. Your custom piece is now ready to be cast in the precious metal of your choice. Once cast, one of our professional stone setters carefully assembles and sets each stone. This phase can be simple or extremely complex based on the design. As an example, our AGTA Spectrum Award ring we created in 2018 included 268 gemstones plus the center gem. Now that’s complicated! Your custom design is then inspected and prepared with your desired finish, be that high polish, brushed, satin or one of the varieties of finishes available for your unique piece. Your jewelry is inspected once again upon finishing, to ensure that every detail will exceed your expectations.

The Delivery

The Delivery is why we come to work every day. That’s the best part! Your smile and your satisfaction is the reason we do what we do. The custom design process may follow a similar path for every project, but it is never the same. Every piece has a story, a history, a future. And every single piece is worth the time, worth the effort and worth the attention to detail to make it absolutely perfect. More importantly, we hope we made the process easy. Because the outcome is always worth it!

CUSTOM JEWELRY

Jewelry is an expression of your personal style, and few things are as exciting as creating a custom piece of jewelry. Custom designed jewelry is the ultimate luxury and fashion statement. When it comes to designing one-of-a-kind rings, necklaces, bracelets or earrings, there are no limits to your imagination and our creativity. 

Inspiration can come from anywhere. A grandmother’s antique pin, pearls worn at your mother’s wedding, diamond stud earrings; all to be reimagined and repurposed into a new custom pendant, ring or necklace, bringing new life to cherished pieces.
