Custom Jewelry Design Frequently Asked Questions
Traditionally, custom jewelry design required a significant amount of faith that inspiration could be accurately translated into a unique piece of custom made jewelry. By combining the latest design technology with over 40 years experience crafting exquisite jewelry, Andrews Jewelers's Custom Jewelry Design Team brings your inspiration to life. There are no limitations to the custom handcrafted jewelry we can create; whether the design is a unique piece for women or custom men's jewelry. In fact, we are even able to expertly replicate designs, as long as they are not copyrighted.
Each step of the custom jewelry design process is mindful of remaining true to your vision. We capture that inspiration using the precision of technology and create each piece with unsurpassed craftsmanship.
3D Computer Aided Design - Precise & Realistic
Using sophisticated design software, we first create a precise 3D model of the custom designed jewelry piece. These models are used to create strikingly realistic renderings of the piece, allowing you to verify the design's accuracy with confidence.
Computer Rendering - Capturing Your Ideas
Jewelry is not flat. It has dimensions and textures that vary based upon perspective. Evaluating a custom made jewelry design can be difficult unless these qualities are represented. For this reason, our graphic artists work from the 3D model to create a life-like sample image. You can review the design with confidence and gain a realistic impression of your finished piece. Any desired changes may be discussed and implemented to your complete satisfaction. No other technique has proven to be more effective in capturing your vision than the Andrews Jewelers Custom Jewelry Design Process.
Wax Prototype - Highest Resolution Standards
Once the rendering of your custom designed jewelry has been approved, the 3D model is sent to the wax growing machines. The machines create the prototype to the highest resolution standards possible, resulting in a precise final piece. So precise, in fact, that Andrews Jewelers provides a Custom Design Warranty.
A mold is then created from the prototype. The desired precious metal is injected into the mold to create a jewelry casting.
Final Assembly - Beauty and Quality Craftsmanship
The final step involves the art and skill of craftsmanship. A master-craftsman prepares the casting for parts and assembly. Precious gems and/or diamonds to be used in the piece of custom handcrafted jewelry are hand-selected and carefully mounted.
The jeweler next brings the piece of custom made jewelry to a bright polish before no less than three Andrews Jewelers jewelers carefully inspect all work.
We're so confident in the quality of our custom jewelry designs that we offer a 1-year warranty against manufacturing defects; including diamond and gemstone loss.
