Perhaps what we enjoy the most at Diamonds by Raymond Lee and Raymond Lee Jewelers is our custom jewelry design service. Nothing compares to creating beautiful pieces for generations of love, admiration and cherish. The best part of our job is sitting down to create an imaginative work of art that is both meaningful and highly functional. We listen to the wants of our clients and guide with the utmost sensitivity and expert experience in order to make dreams come to life.
Our process begins first with a consultation. We discuss exactly what you’re looking for, what you want the essence of your custom jewelry piece to be, and how you want it to function for your lifestyle. This consultation is the beginning of a true partnership, where we listen, give our input, and collaborate with you to create the very first sketches and illustrations of your piece. It’s pulling your dream from thin air into its first form.
The next step involves you relaxing – here in our gorgeous, state-of-the-art showroom with one of our local craft beers on tap, or on your own while you live your life and entrust your dream to our experts. Our jewelry designer will polish the rough sketch and submit to you for changes, questions, comments, and approval. Once we’ve finalized the design together, our team of experts will start sourcing the finest materials. We use nothing but the best platinum and gold, the finest gemstones, and expertly selected conflict-free diamonds. Once we know the amount of raw materials, we can give you a quote that falls within your budget. Upon your approval, we move on to the next design phase.
CAD stands for Computer Aided Design. This is a digital 3D model that our master jeweler will review with you to make sure the piece meets your exacting standards. It also gives him a guide to place every detail exactly where it should be. After that, we’ll create a physical wax model so you can see the size, shape, and structure of your piece. This will allow us to test for fitting and functionality, and give you and our jeweler one last opportunity for necessary changes.
Finally our master jeweler casts your custom jewelry design (or designs), working meticulously to polish and place every detail exactly how you envisioned. Our showroom is more than just stunning, it also houses our state of the art jewelry workshop, fully loaded with the best in jewelry design and repair technology. Our master jewelers are by far the most important influence on the quality of our custom and private label design, but we ensure that they have the best tools at hand to create their artwork.
Upon completion it undergoes our rigorous quality control, polish and inspection by our team of jewelers and diamond experts, before our final presentation to you.
Our process is highly regimented and successful and it’s what we love doing most. We encourage our clients to be involved and vocal every step of the way. We want to hear your opinions and make your vision come to life. We offer a supportive, educated and comfortable environment for clients to freely express their artistic ideas and vision.
Depending on the intricacy of your design, the entire custom jewelry design process takes between 2-6 weeks. And no matter your budget, our team of designers, experts, and jewelers will work with you to make your dream piece of jewelry a reality.
We make it easy for you to get exactly what you’re looking for, and take great pride in every step of the process. We believe each piece of jewelry tells a unique story – and we provide a beautiful place to facilitate its creation. Contact us today to see your custom jewelry design come to life.
