How We Create Custom Jewelry

Why Design Jewelry with Us?


There's nothing like the knowledge that your jewelry is a one-of-a-kind creation—that you helped design! It's not only a conversation piece, but piece of personal fulfillment. Whether you're looking to design a custom engagement ring, bring new life to old jewelry, or simply create custom jewelry for the fun of it, we're here to guide you.

Simply Unique has four metalsmiths and jewelry designers on site. We can create jewelry from scratch or use inherited jewelry that you never wear. We've created custom jewelry pieces for customers in 23 states and 9 countries.  All have been extremely happy with their custom-made jewelry designs.

We have partnered with local businesses who aid us with stone cutting and diamond re-cutting, and we have a large inventory of diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and many other stones and rocks less often found in fine jewelry stores.

The Custom Jewelry Process

  1. Start the project. Tell us what you have in mind! You can fill out our custom jewelry design form or call us to talk with a jewelry artist and set up an appointment.  
     

  2. Share your design inspiration. This might be as simple as showing us a photo of a similar piece, sketching out your custom jewelry idea for us, showing us an object (such as an antique table leg) that the piece can be based on, or describing your custom jewelry idea to the metalsmith. 
     

  3. Bring us any stones you'd like us to use, such as the diamond from your grandmother's engagement ring. Otherwise, we can help you choose stones from our vast collection!
     

  4. Collaborate with your jewelry artist. We will be in touch with you during the entire process to ensure your satisfaction.
     

  5. Review a computer rendering of your design. CAD jewelry designs are developed on computer screens using state-of-the-art equipment and software that translates your thoughts and vision into works of art. Simply Unique proudly offers CAD CAM jewelry design services using Counter Sketch to create and modify your custom jewelry desires.
     

  6. Try on a 3D prototype of your design. When you have approved the custom jewelry design,  a rendering of the work is then sent to a mill, printer or growing machine where it will be generated into a 3D wax or resin form that you can touch and feel before it is cast into your  metal of choice. While CAD jewelry design does not replace the need for jewelers and the uniqueness of hand-fabricated jewelry, it does provide you with a visual prototype of your piece before it is created.
     

  7. Take home your jewelry! We'll call you when it's ready, and you can start wearing your one-of-a-kind creation—and hopefully pass it down someday.
