How much does an initial deposit cost?
We charge $350 to begin custom work beyond the initial consultation and once we need to gather stones or research ideas for your custom piece. We love discussing custom work and spend a lot of time behind the scenes working for you in the beginning before we have even made a piece of jewellery. Thank you for trusting us with our process and compensating us for this time. Additional meetings/communication may need to be billed at a cost of $50/hour or a subsequent charge for additional stone viewing or drawings of $350
The $350 deposit covers the following:
Sourcing stones for your project (up to 5, and pending availability) We may need to ship stones in from a supplier, and take photos and videos for you to select from. Read our FAQ
Drawings of bands/designs (up to 3). If you are buying a focal gemstone, we do this after you have selected and paid for your gemstone, not in advance of the project. If you have any questions, please email us.
This fee is non-refundable and will be credited towards your final piece.
