Custom jewelry – how it works
Work that goes into the creation of a single piece of custom jewelry is immense, and client input is essential throughout the process. We, as jewelers, can’t just create an ornament and expect you to purchase it. Well, we can, but custom pieces can be expensive, and almost every client wants to be a part of the process. If you contact us, then you will be an essential part of the process, and that will ensure that your custom ornament is the same as you imagined it.
Now, here is a whole process of design and creation of custom jewelry, from your idea to the finished product.
The process starts with you
The idea in your head is the starting point of the whole process. You shouldn’t think about 3D design at the outset. The first thing you should do is to think about the type of the ornament as well as the general shape. Take a pen and a piece of paper and start drawing rough sketches of the item. Those sketches don’t have to be precise as they are only there for you to see how an article might turn out.
The next step is to consider fine details of the item. This includes everything from choosing materials and gemstones to the style of the jewelry. This also includes checking whether there are elements of the piece that would make it uncomfortable to wear.
The final step of this part of the process is to approach us with the rough sketch. We will review it and make a list of possible mistakes and how to correct them. This is a part where we will discuss details of the item and whether it is possible to make it. We will start with our work once we agree that the item looks as it should.
3D design and printing of the ornament
This is a moment where our 3D designers start with their portion of work. They will take the final sketch with measures and the list of materials and create a 3D model of the piece we agreed on. We will contact you to check whether there is any need to change aspects of the 3D piece. This is a significant step as the ornament will look the same as a 3D model our designers make.
We will print a 3D model of the design in resin to check whether there are any inconsistencies with your request. We can set up a video call for you to review it or send you it via email. You will have to send it back once you check it.
You will get the estimate of the total price before the work starts. The work on the custom made jewelry you helped design will then start.
The creation of custom jewelry isn’t simple
The whole process of manufacturing of the custom jewelry isn’t simple as you can see from this article. It will take a long time and a lot of resources to create one. But at the end, you will get an item you designed, and that is the point of custom ornaments.
