Dream big. Pull together your sketches, mood boards, images and editorials torn from the pages of your favorite fashion magazine—anything to help us bring your vision to life. You can then build a quick digital Sketchbook from the Get Started menu, sending us your favorite images and Wishlist items all at once.
CREATING THE SKETCH.
Once we gather your needs, wants and must-haves, we'll work with you personally to transform your ideas into a cohesive design plan based on your style, material preferences, and budget.
COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN.
We'll then develop a 3D rendering of your design using Computer Aided Design (CAD) for you to review. You’ll get to see your piece from all angles before it is cast in metal in a form that is quick and easy to modify to exactly what you envision (or better).
TO THE MINES.
We travel directly to the mines to acquire the gemstones we need from our miners and cutters. We hand-select each stone for our pieces for color, clarity, and overall quality.
GET A WAX MODEL.
This is our favorite part: the rendering brought to life! After you have approved your CAD model, we create the piece in wax. This model is great to show the final fit, size, and style of the design before the final piece is made.
MOLDING & CASTING.
We take that very wax model and cast the final piece using what is called lost wax casting, “precision” casting or cire-perdue. This ensures that the final mold retains the piece’s fine detailing, down to the hand carving and smallest micro-pave prongs.
The newly created fine metal piece is then hand-set with your gemstones and finished with plating, fine polishing, and any other final embellishments you desire. We take great care to ensure our craftsmanship lives up to your expectations.
MEET YOUR NEW FAVORITE PIECE.
Once the piece is completed, we ship or hand-deliver it to you ready to gift or present in our luxurious suede-lined packaging. We’ll provide you with a full appraisal of the piece and all original laboratory certifications as well as complimentary storage and care items.
