The Custom Process
Design Your Piece
Whether you want to redesign an heirloom piece or create something brand new and completely unique, the first step to custom design is sitting down with one of our expert jewelers. During an appointment with one of our custom designers, you will be guided through the design process starting with a sketch of your ideas and ending with a piece uniquely your own. Because we create every piece in house, your custom design will be available for review at every step. In addition to the piece itself, your design consultant will be available throughout the creation of your piece and will routinely check in to provide updates, gain approvals, and answer any questions you may have.
Wax Carving and Metal Casting
Creating a custom piece requires a very personal touch with extreme attention to detail. The goldsmiths here at Skeie's Jewelers use only the best methods to achieve the look you desire with all the exact details of your design. To accomplish this precise art, our jewelers take the time to hand carve a wax model to best grasp the exact design of your piece. After the wax is molded and approved by you, the jeweler then makes a casting out of your preferred metal right here in house. Once the rough casting is complete the jeweler then smoothes out the metal, sets any gemstones in the design, and completes the process with a thorough clean and polish.
Once the piece is finished our certified gemologists complete a complimentary appraisal and prepare your item for pick up. Each and every hand crafted piece is created with care and produced to the highest standard with you in mind.
