Let's Create Something Special

Do you have a design in mind that you don’t see in our showcases? Then you’re just the kind of person the jewelry artists at Ray-Ward Fine Jewelers love to talk to!

Whether you want a completely new piece of jewelry or you’d like to have us give your heirlooms a new look, we can bring your dreams and ideas to life. And in most cases, we can create a one-of-a-kind, custom jewelry design for about the same price as a comparable, ready-made piece.

Here’s how we’ll do it:

First, a Bit of Brainstorming

Bring us your thoughts, your ideas, and your desires, because every beautiful piece of custom jewelry begins with a conversation. We’ll sit down and discuss what you want, what you need, and what you love. We’ll talk gemstones and metals – and lifestyle and budget – and start setting the stage for an amazing, personal custom jewelry project.

Then Some Model Magic

After our meeting, we’ll take that rough sketch, along with all of the notes, and begin forming your custom creation. We’ll create a computer model of your design on our state-of-the-art CAD system. Then you can examine the design and make any necessary changes. When your 2D design is ready, we’ll bring it to life by creating a wax model. This model will be used for the final cast.

The Casting Call

Once we’ve cast your custom jewelry in the precious metal you requested, it is expertly filed and sanded before our artisans set the stones. From our initial meeting until now, the process may take four to six weeks. But your patience will soon pay off!

As soon as we’ve given it a final inspection and polish, we’ll call you down for the final step in the custom-jewelry process.

And Finally...

The Reveal. It’s our favorite part of the process. We love to see your face light up when you see all your ideas and dreams transformed into the jewelry you’ll love to wear today and pass down from generations to come.
