At Calvin’s we offer the best custom jewelry in Austin, Texas. We specialize in creating unique and beautiful designs personalized for you. Whether you want to design a wedding ring, anniversary band, or a special gift, we would love to help you.
The best way to start is to make an appointment with one of our custom specialists. Our jewelry experts have years of experience working with custom design and can help guide you through the process. You are welcome to bring in any designs you have along with any gems you would like to incorporate in your new jewelry.
If you are “starting from scratch” we have many styles of rings, pendants, and earrings in stock for inspiration. Once you decide on a style, we will combine your favorite elements in a new design. We are happy to provide the metal and gems needed to create your vision; however, most designs can be customized around your own gems. You can also bring some of your own precious metal for credit towards your custom jewelry.
When we’ve worked out the design of your new piece of jewelry we can then work on an estimate for price. When you have materials of your own, the process requires a more calculated approach. If you are supplying gemstones, we will carefully count and measure all your gems to develop an accurate quote. We will begin working on your custom design as soon as payment is received.
Most custom orders will include a CAD rendering this is a 3D model generated to give you a rough preview of what your piece of jewelry will look like. We use CAD for complex designs or parts involved with finished jewelry. If there are any potential areas of structural instability or changes that need to be made we can edit them in this model before the piece is made. Once the CAD rendering is accepted the wax will be formed with a special 3D printer and cast. Finishing work and preparation is done by hand before being handed to a skilled stone setter to complete your work of art.
The most exciting part of the custom process is receiving the call that your jewelry has arrived and trying on your new design for the first time. A beautiful, personalized creation is something you will always cherish; in time it might become a family heirloom.
At Calvin’s, we understand that custom is an exciting and emotional adventure, and we are experienced tour guides! Stop by our store, and let’s work together to create a unique, meaningful piece of wearable art that will be enjoyed for generations.
