One-On-One Consultation

At Nelson Coleman Jewelers it’s important to us that we understand exactly what you want in your custom made jewelry. You’ll sit down with a designer to collaborate and discuss all of the possibilities. Reviewing photos, sketches and actual pieces. Through this process we can develop a basic sketch, advise you on stone quality, precious metals, comfort and wear.

Custom Jewelry Design Approval

We will create computer-aided design (CAD) drawings and render it as a photo-realistic image. We want your custom made jewelry to be perfect, so we will alter the rendering until it meets your expectations. If we are providing a center stone for you, we will also have you select your favorite from a few different options.

Custom Jewelry 3D Wax Model

Once you have approved the sketches, a three-dimensional wax model of your design will be made. This is an extremely accurate preview of the final product. At this stage of the custom jewelry design process we want to make sure the rendering is translating into the piece of jewelry of your dreams.

Casting and Finishing Your Custom Made Jewelry

We carefully bring out the shine, texture and details in creating the metal version of the product. Our master gem setters artfully set each stone by hand, using extreme care to ensure quality. Before presenting you with the finished piece, we carefully carry out a detailed examination to ensure that every step of the process has yielded a design that will far exceed your expectations.
