Custom designing jewelry may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. Here at Jay F. Jeweler our goal is to provide you with your dream jewelry, world class customer service and a seamless design process. 

There are so many possibilities in the jewelry world that searching for the perfect ring or pendant can be deeply overwhelming. Creating your own custom jewelry may help make the shopping process easier and more satisfying. You know what you like, and we will work with you to create exactly what you have been looking for. 

Our best advice if you are interested in custom design or engagement ring shopping is to gather ideas and visuals about styles you love and styles you dislike. When you come to Jay F. Jeweler armed with information and visuals it will be a smooth process to create a design of the ideal jewelry that is as unique as you are.

One of the benefits of custom designing jewelry is that we will work within your budget to produce your one-of-a-kind jewelry. The four most important pieces of information we need in order to start creating your custom design are:

  1. Type of Jewelry
  2. Styles you love 
  3. Time frame (Are you proposing with this jewelry? Is it for a significant other’s birthday?)
  4. Budget 

The Custom Design Experience at Jay F. Jeweler

Your custom design experience with Jay F. Jeweler begins when you meet with one of our expert jewelers to discuss what style of jewelry you would like to create. If you would like to schedule an appointment with our designers please call us at (952) 432-9595. Scheduling an appointment with us will streamline the design process and ensure that we have the appropriate staff member available to assist you. 

Our jewelry designers will then rough sketch a design concept or show you similar jewelry design options. Once we have your approval we will create a computer-aided design of your new custom jewelry piece and 3D print a resin model of your jewelry. 

These resin models can be worn and help you visualize your new jewelry. When you approve the 3D printed model we will begin crafting your new custom piece of fine jewelry. 

How Long Does the Jewelry Design Process Take?

The length of time it takes to produce a custom designed jewelry item varies based on how many designs we create before receiving your approval. If the first design and prototype are approved, the process from first appointment to picking up your new jewelry takes an average of 4-6 weeks. Additional alterations to the design will add time onto the process to ensure your custom jewelry is perfect.
