Designing a custom jewelry can seem daunting. However, our experienced staff we will simplify the entire process. Before you begin creating custom design jewelry, there are plenty of places to go. It is best to look for ideas through jewelry or fashion magazines, different jewelry stores, internet jewelry sites or any other avenue that can offer up ideas. Your ideas start from something already imbedded in your mind. But in reality, you will find your idea in a collection of experiences. Try to bring in your favorite sights, sounds and colors to create a wonderful design.
The first decision, of custom design jewelry is the center of attraction—your stone. It does not matter whether you select a diamond or a color gemstone, you want it be something you love.
Only use one center gemstone at a time. Otherwise, the design will become too busy and will lose its purpose. Same size center stones will not compliment each other, but rather they will cause the ring to have difficulty to establish balance. Select the stone that will bring out brilliance as well as balance, and it will. Our spectacular staff will help assist you one step along the way of your designer jewelry.
For that perfect unique jewelry, a mounting will need to take on the shape of your center stone and your creative tastes. Look for shapes that fit with your center stone, setting your stone either in the center or off center of the mounting. Remember that center stones do not have to fit exactly in the center of a mounting to work. Off center balancing is done all the time with great results, just look at pieces in magazines or books. If your mounting fits both those categories you will have a great design.
Our master jewelers understand that designer jewelry has great materials. These materials include the color of precious metal is somewhat important because certain metal colors go better with certain gemstone colors. A good example is white or blue colored gemstones attain a better radiance in white metals verses yellow metals. Before you start selecting, it is best to consult a professional designer on color combinations and techniques.
One of the most important aspect when creating your own custom jewelry is planning. Planning allows you to control certain steps of the designing process. From the beginning to end, planning will allow you to stop or continue with the design at your pace, not theirs. Keeping the lines of communication open allows you to become comfortable with the design process every step of the way. Always remember, once a design is finished it is very difficult to alter. Therefore, you come to JewelSmiths where we will consult every step of the process.
Communication is important because even if you consult with the jeweler to ensure your designer jewelry is perfect. Therefore, this is very important because some designers like to design pieces they like, not what you like. A good designer can help you develop a design and consult with you on different settings or finishing techniques. It is very important that your designer has the ability to create using the fore mentioned steps.
