The Custom Design Process
The Idea: Let’s take that custom piece of jewelry you’ve been dreaming of and make it a reality. Fill out the form below and let our team of custom designers and goldsmiths help you design the jewelry of your dreams. JB Hudson works with all precious metals including gold, platinum, and sterling silver.
The Meeting: After you submit an inquiry, one of our custom designers will reach out to you and schedule an initial meeting. You’ll then begin to visually conceptualize your new custom jewelry as an initial sketch is completed. Be sure to bring any gemstones or other pieces of jewelry you’re interested in incorporating into your new piece!
The Wax: While a sketch can tell you a lot, you’ll get a better idea of how your new piece of jewelry will wear with a 3D wax model. Your custom designer will work with our goldsmiths to carve a wax replica of your custom piece for final approval—this is the last step before we cast your new custom piece of jewelry!
The Construction: Once you approve the final wax model of your new custom jewelry, our goldsmiths go to work by casting the metal. The initial casting requires lots of handwork, including polishing and adding texture. After your gemstones are set, the custom jewelry gets examined under a microscope to make sure everything is perfect and ready to be worn.
The Reveal: After your new piece of custom jewelry has been given the final blessing by our goldsmiths and designer, the big moment is here! We invite you to come in, have a glass of champagne, and celebrate the new piece of custom jewelry in your life. It’s that easy!
