Custom designs are my specialty, please read through our custom policies and contact me prior to purchasing a design reservation listing.
Once a budget and general idea of the project have been established in the initial consultation, a deposit to cover time spent designing and/or sourcing stones is requested. This is a $250 fee (priced increased from $226 on Feb 1, 2020) and it covers the following time services associated with your project:
If you are shopping for the perfect stone:
– The designers time to source gemstones appropriate to your request, limited to 5. These are reviewed by you in photos or videos if you are out of town, or in person if you are local**
If you are creating a ring that requires designing around your stones, or a wedding band, this fee covers:
– Up to 5 layouts or sketches of ring designs – one of these designs will become the finished design.
A digital work order outlining the details of your custom project will be sent to you. A custom listing will be made for you and placed in our custom listings page where you can check out and pay with a major credit card. If you are in Canada and wish to pay with an Interac e-transfer, you may send your deposit amount to firstname.lastname@example.org
* Design fee is non-refundable in case of non-completion of the project.
**Please note that stones of significant value may not be available for viewing due to restrictions from suppliers. I will do my best to show photos and videos to capture their integrity and beauty. Not every stone can be taken out on loan from a supplier. Please only request stone viewings if you are serious about making a purchase.
