Call us, email, or simply stop into our retail store in Mill Valley. We offer private appointments in store and online. During the appointment we work with you to design what you want within your budget. Our approach to jewelry is two prong: creativity and customer service.
We have thousands of loose gemstones to choose from in our inventory and if we don't have it; don't fret, we can get it! Once you've chosen 'your' gemstone or diamond then you will design the setting. We design in 14K, 18K gold, and platinum. We rhodium plate our white gold to ensure it remains highly polished for as long as possible. Our diamonds are colorless (F color) with VVS/VS clarity and full-cut (57 facets each for all .01 carat+ diamonds). Using near flawless diamonds makes a huge difference!
Now that we have the gemstone and setting design, we will do a [rough] photoshop of your custom piece to give you a visual of what it will look like finished.
After you approve the design, we then calculate the price. Once price is approved, we send you and invoice. Once payment is received, we send you a CAD (Computer Aided Drawing: a technical rendering.) Your CAD shows the exact proportions of the gemstone in the setting. Any *minor* tweaks can be made at this point. Once the CAD is approved, we make your setting.
We never charge "Design Fees" to make a custom piece of jewelry as we manufacture our own fine jewelry collection.
We offer free shipping and free gift wrapping!
