our custom process

co-creating customized jewelry

imagine curating a jewelry collection perfectly tailored to your taste and lifestyle

Whether you are looking for the perfect engagement ring, updating your heirloom jewelry, or creating a brand-new statement piece, custom design means creating exactly what you’re looking for. Everyone who commissions a custom piece with llyn strong works with her team several times throughout the process to make sure the piece is a perfect fit artistically, technically, and personally. Allow the team to take you on a journey from initial consultation to 3D rendering, castings, and finally a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry appraised by our Graduate Gemologist. Use stones you already have or allow our gemologist to source high quality diamonds and colored gemstones perfectly suited to your style and budget. Each piece is thoughtfully and artistically crafted to your taste culminating in a piece that is sentimental as well as long-lasting.

1. Consultation

During your consultation with llyn strong, you’ll discuss your vision for your custom jewelry and whether existing gemstones will be incorporated into the piece. If your piece is a gift, we’ll also discuss the style and personality of the individual wearer. After making a few thumbnail sketches of your design, llyn will provide you with an estimate.

Contact us or walk in our store on N. Main Street to set up your complimentary consultation.

2. Get Started

Once you’re comfortable with the direction your custom piece is heading, you’ll put down a deposit. Our team will begin the technical design phase, taking your piece from concept to 3-D rendering.

3. Rendering

The details of your piece are fine-tuned in CAD drafting software. You’ll be shown a hyper-realistic, color rendering of your jewelry, so you can clearly visualize what the final piece will look like (and determine if there are any changes necessary before the mold is made).

4. Wax or Metal Modeling

If needed, you can view the wax or metal model of your piece. This step is not always necessary but may be preferred if you’d like to review the piece’s true size or a design is particularly intricate.

5. Presentation & Appraisal

Depending on the intricacy of the piece, the custom process takes between 3 to 12 weeks from approval to finish. As an added value, you’ll receive an appraisal and photograph of your finished piece. Pick up your piece from our office or have it securely shipped. Wear, repeat, and enjoy for many years to come!
