The Process

Introductory Meeting

We meet virtually or in person to kick off your project to get an overall vision of the piece you’d like to create. We cover metal and stone preferences, budget, and unique features. While we cannot exactly replicate previous designs or jewelry by other designers, we love inspiration imagery and encourage you to come to this meeting with pictures of styles you’d like to approximate to give us an idea of your aesthetic and preferences. After this meeting, we send you a summary report along with next steps.

Stone Sourcing

We work closely with reputable stone vendors all over the world—whether it’s a GIA-certified diamond, a uniquely cut sapphire, or a stunning tourmaline, we help you find your ideal stones. We present photos and videos of stone options with pricing. We are typically able to procure up to three stone options to examine in person. Once you have a selection, we require full payment for the stone.


Our team creates three initial designs for you to review, along with pricing, measurements, and design descriptions. The designs are prepared digitally, and we make them as realistic as possible to give you a full picture of the finished piece. We include two revisions to the initial designs in the base fee; additional changes will incur a $75 fee per revision.

Wax Printing

Once you choose a design, we print a wax model for you to try on. We can have this available in our store or sent directly to you. The wax model is an exact representation of the piece and gives you a sense of scale and fit.


Your vision becomes a reality! We cast your piece from the wax model and work with our trusted stone setters to make sure your piece is finished to perfection.

Hear From Our Custom Customers

“Mallory and her team provided an exceptional experience in making a custom engagement ring that was based on my partner’s mother’s. They were patient and provided a great deal of detail in the process and the design. They were there for every step, but they never pushed an opinion or agenda. Instead, they educated us and happily answered any questions (I had many). They were simply laser focused on making sure we got what we were looking for”
