Design your Jewellery

In order to begin the design process, we need to see your vision. With the visual references and product specifications collected in your request form, we will create a digital illustration using computer aided design (CAD). The CAD is then sent to you for review and approval via email. At this stage, you’ll have the opportunity to make adjustments to the design before it is handcrafted. Any major design changes are subject to additional fees and assessed on a case-by-case basis.
