We specialize in custom design and have our own collection of handmade pieces. Whether you want to repurpose what you have or make something from scratch we have the experience to bring your vision to life. We start with a consultation and once we come up with a design we will have a cad rendering done within 10 days and can have a wax model produced for you to see in person. We can alter the design at no cost until we get it perfect and then, once approved, we go to production and your one of a kind piece will be complete in approximately 4 weeks.
When you hear the words "custom design," you may think the cost will be extreme, but that's not the case at all. At Philip Alexander Jewelers you will actually pay less for creating your own custom design because your custom piece of jewelry is made exclusively for you and bypasses the "designer-to-retailer mark-up."
With your jewelry design idea and our expertise, creating and capturing your very own family heirloom is such a rewarding experience! So give us a call and make an appointment for a free consultation.
- We'll start with an in-store consultation and discuss what you have in mind and get those creative juices flowing! You're welcome to bring along any drawings, photos, or Pinterest boards or even share an actual piece of jewelry that excites you! We'll chat about all of the possibilities including stone and metal choices. Once we confirm the design ideas, we're ready to move forward.
- Then we'll create a wax mold and/or a CAD, (computer-aided design), depending on the design, within days of consultation. Upon your inspection, we'll then fine tune your custom design until you're happy and ready to continue.
- The next step is casting your design, which can be done using our metal or yours. It's your preference. You may then opt to see the raw casting or the metal polished before the final step.
- Our master jewelers will then finish your custom design by using their stone setting expertise for your diamonds and/or gemstones and highlight the shine, texture, and detail to your perfected custom piece of jewelry.
