Custom Jewelry Process
Is there a unique fine jewelry idea that you want to bring to life for yourself or a loved one? Whether it's a unique engagement ring that symbolizes your love story, a statement necklace that showcases your personality, or a sentimental piece for a special occasion, we are happy to works together to create a piece that is truly unique to you. Anastassia works with fine metals including 10K, 14K, 18K, and Platinum, as well as precious and semi-precious gemstones.
Step 1: Custom Inquiry Email & Estimate
When you are ready to create your custom jewelry piece, please send us an email with your visual inspiration and any other detail that will help us provide you with a rough estimate. Below is a list of factors to consider:
- metal (10K, 14K, 18K, Platinum)
- stone type and shape
- ring size (if applicable)
- chain length (if applicable)
Once your email is received, we will respond within 2–3 working days with follow up questions regarding your request and an estimate. You can also schedule a 30 min Zoom consultation call here.
Step 2: Custom Design Mockups
Once the estimate is received and you’d like to move forward with the design mockups, there is a $100 CAD design mockup deposit that is put towards the cost of the project. You will receive 3 design directions, available stone options and their associated quotes.
Once the design direction and stone is chosen, we begin working on the digital design model. To begin we require 75% deposit on all projects over $5,000 CAD, and full payment for all projects under $5,000 CAD.
Step 4: Finalize Design
Once we receive your payment, we will work together to finalize your design and provide you with a digital design (CAD) model. You will have two iterations to finalize the design direction before moving into production.
Step 5: Production
Upon approval of the digital design, we will proceed to the production phase of the project. Lead time is approximately 4–7 weeks from the time the payment is received. In many cases, you will receive progress updates along the way, but please reach out if you have any further questions.
Step 6: Shipping
Your custom jewelry is ready for delivery. Various courier options are available for shipping and delivery. Once all outstanding payments are made (shipping, design upgrades, etc), we ship the piece(s) to you.
