The first step is to come in for an appointment, or e-mail us. Bring in or send your idea, picture or whatever
inspiration you have.
Discuss with us in regards of you prefer metal, What gemstone(s) you’d like, your finger size, the date you’d like
to receive it by and our approximate budget. Once we’ve had this conversation, we can give you an estimate.
There’s usually some minor changes made in the project. When these are decided, you’ll receive a quotation
containing a complete description of your jewellery, with all characteristics listed, and its final price. Once the
details of the quotation are agreed upon, there’s a down payment of approximately 20% of the total.
Upon receipt of your down payment, we purchase your gemstones and create your design. Your computer-
generated design is easily viewed by e-mail. At this time, the design is still quite easy to alter; just let us know
what you want changed and we’ll send the new, modified version. We use 3-D programs to create a wireframe
model with state-of-the-art NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B–Splines) technology. NURBS is a mathematical
representation for creating smooth curves and surfaces. The wireframe looks like an exact photographic
rendering of your jewellery and because you examine the actual computer-created model before it is cast, you’re
part of every stage of the creative process from 2-D to 3-D.
We begin to make your jewellery only after you approve the final design. Making your jewellery takes
approximately 3 weeks.
