Redesign

Recreate a family heirloom or famous engagement ring

Redesign an existing ring or wedding set

This is a great starting point if you already have a solid idea of a design with specific photos of inspiration pieces from online, magazines, or sketches. We have created heirloom pieces and wedding sets so that they incorporated a specific previous design, but also included elements of the wearer's personal style. We can create any design, and it always helps to send us inspiration photos. Through our custom design process, you’ll be able to see mockups from our designers, view detailed 3D models, and receive the final piece brought to life in metal and gemstones by our expert artists. To begin, fill out our custom design form, and a designer will be in touch with follow up questions within one business day.

Custom Design Process

 

 

Custom Jewelry Design Process - Design Stage

Design

To start a new design, choose from our large selection of samples or browse our site and add styles you like to your "Favorites" list. You can also upload images or drawings from your computer to your design page. more info

Once your choice of design, gemstones, and metal, we will be able to provide you with an estimate for the finished product. In most cases we can work within your budget by manipulating the grade of material.

Custom Jewelry Design Process - CAD

CAD

After the down payment is received, a Joseph Jewelry artisan will begin creating a 3D model of the design we started in step one. During this step you can still make any changes or modifications to your design – having the 3D model allows us to visually confirm any changes made at this point. It doesn’t matter how many changes you make, there will be no change to the original estimate as long as we are working on the original project without adding gemstones or materials - if we are adding any material or gemstones then an adjustment to the original price will be made accordingly.

Custom Jewelry Design Process - Render

Render

Rendered images of your 3D model can be emailed directly to you, posted to your online design account, or can be viewed in person by visiting the store. The computer-rendered images allow us to show you realistic views of your design as it will look when finished in the exact metal and gemstones (if any) you have chosen.

After you have made all your design adjustments and have viewed the rendered images of your design we will ask for your final approval of the 3D model.

Custom Jewelry Design Process - Wax

Wax

On approval we will then use stereo lithography technology to “print” a full-size wax version of your design. This technology allows us to create the most intricate and complex details possible in the jewelry industry, within an accuracy of two hundredths of a millimeter; this means you can literally expect perfection from our workmanship.

If you would like to see the wax prototype, you are welcome to stop by for viewing or we can mail it to you anywhere in the world. This prototype is full-scale and will show you the exact detail and dimensions of your project.

Custom Jewelry Design Process - Production

Production

Joseph Jewelry uses a state-of-the-art computerized casting machine that negatively vacuums all oxygen out of the casting chamber and replaces it with released argon gas to purify the environment for casting. This closed environment eliminates all porosity that would otherwise occur naturally due to oxidization. Porosity (tiny air bubbles in the metal) is a sign of an inferior casting and is normally seen on the surface of high-polished metal and will always occur during open-air casting. This is why our argon-gas vacuum chamber is so important.
