The Process

Every story begins with an idea. So does every piece of custom jewelry.

Let the designers at Chipper’s Jewelry hear your ideas and use them to create a one-of-a-kind piece just for you. We can modify an existing piece of jewelry, set new stones into an existing mounting, or design a completely unique piece from scratch.

It’s important to remember, however, that custom doesn’t necessarily mean expensive. We will always work to give you the best value within your budget.

Creating a custom piece of jewelry begins with hearing you – what you want, what you need, and what you love. We listen to your likes and dislikes and offer suggestions to ensure each piece is a beautiful original.

From that information, we sketch different designs, incorporating your favorite stones, type of setting, and other design elements. We’ll also talk about metal. Deciding which type of metal will suit your likes, your lifestyle, and your budget are critical to both the look and durability your piece.

Once the major design decisions are made, you can relax while we get to work. If drawn by hand a wax will be carved. Your feedback at this stage is critical. If you’re unsure about any part of the design, we can change it. We want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your custom piece before we move ahead. If designed on our CAD CAM program we will get your approval in our live renders before machine cutting or printing your wax model.

Upon your approval, we cast and finish your new piece of jewelry to brilliant perfection. Then comes our favorite part of the process: seeing your delight in the completed custom piece of jewelry.
