Many customers prefer creating their own jewelry piece. They are surprised at how easy and economical Custom Design can be. I sell finished jewelry, but Custom is my specialty. For internet customers you have the option of purchasing a ring from the website as shown or starting the design process via GoToMeeting and email. In both cases your ring is built from scratch to your specifications.
I host my local customers at Terra Bella Bakery-Cafe 601 E. Dimond Blvd in Anchorage, Alaska or world-wide customers online with GoToMeeting. The design session takes about 1 hour. You should bring ideas, pictures, or sketches to the meeting. I need to know what you like and just as importantly what you dislike. It’s helpful to have a budget. I will design for that budget. We need to get a ring size. I will size you if we meet in person or you can have a jewelry professional size you prior to an online meeting.
After our meeting the design process begins. I will turn your ideas into a scale model. You will receive photo-real pictures of the design and prices via email. We will exchange emails during the design process. When we are done you will know how much the piece will cost and how long it will take to build.
For local customer to start construction I accept 1/2 the total price as a deposit. The balance is due on delivery. Internet customers please pay the amount shown on the listing to begin construction. If there is a balance full payment is required prior to delivery.
All rings are made from scratch to your specifications. They are not mass-produced. I don't have rings in inventory. Your ring begins as raw gold, platinum, diamond, and gemstones. Construction begins when you are satisfied with the design specifications and the price for the ring.
Limited Edition or Custom Design.
The real difference is the starting point. With Limited Edition we will start with a finished design and customize that design. This can shorten up delivery time considerably. A Limited Edition can be purchased as shown in the listing. In many cases I can deliver in 14 business days. Some Limited Edition will require 4 weeks to build and deliver. Remember they are all built from scratch. Email for build times. Most designs are delivered in 4 weeks.
If you don’t see what you want email me and I will send you other ideas. A design from my website can also serve as a starting place. You can customize any part of the design. All designs on my website can be customized. Email your ideas and I will let you know what is possible, what it would cost, and how long it would take to build.
