Questions? We have answers.
How does custom design work?
A custom design starts with ideas, images, or anything that helps convey your vision. Our design experts will then transform your idea into a Computer Aided Design (CAD) file which allows you to see what your jewelry will look like in real life. From there, we cast, set, polish and inspect your ring to ensure it’s perfect in every way and ready to deliver to your door. Our team helps you through every step to make sure you feel confident and stress-free throughout the process.
How much does it cost to design a custom piece?
The cost truly depends on your design. But, our experienced design consultants would love to learn more about the custom design of your dreams and provide you with a free estimate- just call or email us! While your choice of stone will impact the final price, one thing is for certain: any of our man made stone options will end up saving you thousands when compared to mined diamonds.
What stones can I design with?
We only offer man made stones in our custom pieces. We offer the Nexus Diamond™ alternative which is a lab created diamond simulant that most closely simulates the look, weight and wear of a perfect diamond, but costs up to 80% less than its mined counterpart, Nexus Color Stones which are perfect for those who like the look of colored diamonds but want a more affordable option, and lab grown diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies that are chemically identical to their mined counterparts but cost significantly less. Additionally, we are happy to set any stone that you already own in a custom piece.
With all of these options, you are sure to find the perfect stone that fits in your price range.
Do I need to make a deposit?
We only ask for a $150 down payment to begin the design process and create a Computer Aided Design file, or CAD. You do not need to make a deposit to get an estimate. This deposit is applied to the final price, should you choose to complete the process.
How long does it take to create a custom piece?
Although design times vary based on the complexity of each piece, you'll be able to see a digital representation of your design in as little as 72 hours after getting started. A custom design generally takes 4-8 weeks from concept to completion, although we can work in a shorter timeframe if needed. If you have a set deadline, let your design consultant know. We'll work with you to make sure everything is perfect for the big moment.
Do you offer a warranty?
Every purchase comes with a Manufacturing Warranty. For the lifetime of your ring, if there is a manufacturing defect with your setting, we will repair or replace your ring free of charge. Any damage caused by accidents or normal wear and tear can be repaired for a nominal fee.
*Some limitations apply: Void if another jeweler works on the item. Does not cover lost rings or missing ring components. If components are missing, repairs may incur a cost to replace those missing components. Added services such as soldering rings together or adding bishop bumps are not included.
Additionally, all Nexus Diamond™ alternatives are covered under a Lifetime Stone Guarantee. With normal wear and proper care, your Nexus Diamond alternative will never chip, crack or discolor. If there is ever a problem with your stone, we'll fix it or replace it for free. Period.
We always advise that you purchase an insurance plan for your piece, and we’re happy to help you find the right one. *If another jeweler works on your piece, this warranty is void.

And, of course, if there is a mistake on our end, we will make it right.
