Whether you are looking for a unique engagement ring, a beautiful keepsake, or a thoughtful gift for a loved one, there’s nothing as special as custom jewelry. Rather than picking jewelry from the display case, designing a custom piece can give you the satisfaction of creating something one of a kind. It takes a bit more time and thought, but the result is worth it. Here is how to get started:
Firstly, start off by visiting a few local Utah jewelry stores and make a note of all of the things you like. If you’re looking for rings, for example, write down all of the settings, stone cuts, metals, and band styles that appeal to you. Creating a Pinterest board or taking photos of rings you like at the stores you visit can be helpful too.
Next, look at your list and narrow things down to one or two specific ideas. For example, one idea might be an engagement ring with a pear-cut yellow diamond set on a diamond-studded gold band. It will help if you can find a picture of something close to what you are looking for. If you cannot find one, try to find a few pictures that show different elements of the custom piece you are hoping to create, such as one that shows the correct band, and one that shows the right stone.
Thirdly, start looking for Utah custom jewelry stores near you. Look for reviews online and thoroughly review their websites. Make sure that they have the capabilities to make what you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for a specific stone, be sure that the store carries or can order that stone. If the information you need isn’t available on the website, don’t be afraid to call the jewelry store. They’ll be happy to answer any questions you have. This will help you narrow down your search to two to four stores that can create the custom jewelry you are looking for.
Fourth, make appointments and sit down with the jewelers at the Utah-based stores you have selected. Describe the custom piece you want and show them the picture or pictures that you have gathered. They will likely have some helpful input as well and can help you envision the best of what you are looking for. Based on your discussion, they will create a digital rendering of the custom piece for you to review and give you a price quote.
Finally, look over the digital renderings and price quotes from the different Utah jewelers you visited and make your final decision. Then call the jewelry store you’ve chosen and they’ll get started creating your custom jewlery.
