Custom Design Process
Let's create a special piece of jewelry together.
Below is what to expect during the design process with Elisha Marie
Custom Jewelry Design starts at $1,000.
This price includes consultation meeting, CAD (computer aided design) 3D printing resin prototype, production, casting, gemstone setting, polishing, and hand-finishing each piece.
If at any time you are unhappy with the design, you will be responsible only for the phases of the design that have been completed.
Custom designs are final sales and non-refundable.
From start to finish the entire process should take 6-12 weeks, subject to the specifications and/or changes in design.
Let's discuss your timeline, budget and why you'd like to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
This will allow us to get a chance to know you better and get an idea of exactly what you are looking for.
What jewelry type, metal preference, and overall design aesthetic are you looking for? (clean and modern, vintage, classic, etc.)
If you are using your own gemstones, please send a photo before so it can be approved.
( I may need to see them in person for exact measurements )
Feel free to send me pictures of what inspires you for your custom design project. This can be anything from a piece of jewelry you saw online or something interesting you found on Pinterest.
- Discuss sizing for finger/wrist/neck
We will need to get you exact sizing before starting the design process.
If you are ordering a ring, get a ring sizer here.
If you are ordering a necklace or bracelet, here are some tips to finding your size.
Most items can be custom engraved with your choice of fonts and colors
Choose what type of packaging you would like for your custom piece.
Once we are ready to begin, a $400 deposit non-refundable custom design consultation fee is required. This is to cover the time involved in the design process and will be absorbed into the overall budget for the design. An invoice will be emailed to you which can be paid by credit card or debit card.
4. Design Stage
-EM Jewelry will sketch two drawings/CAD images based on your information and a budget range. The images will be emailed to you for approval.
-This stage is a critical element to clearly outline the design concept and budget for the project.
-We will allow up to three changes for the design. Additional changes are $25 each
- All change requests are done by email.
3. Bringing your design to life with a prototype
This is the stage where EM Jewelry starts to create your jewelry design.
Your final CAD jewelry design is 3D printed to make a resin ( like plastic ) prototype that you can try on at home.
( Gemstones not included in the prototype)
4. Project Completion
Once your Custom design is completed, it will be shipped to your address on file with an email confirmation including tracking number and insurance.
Orders are shipped using standard USPS Priority Mail Express 1 day delivery, insurance and signature requirement unless otherwise noted by the customer.
5. Lifetime Guarantee
You will get a lifetime guarantee on all custom designs within normal wear and tear. If a stone falls out or a chain breaks, I got you.
Plus, you'll get free polishing and cleanings to keep your jewelry sparkling.
