Custom Jewelry Designs
The Custom Process
Lee Dorn Jewelers will work with you to develop a unique jewelry design specific to your tastes and personality. Whether it be from a concept, photo or idea that you already have or a design that is developed here with us in-house. The objective is to deliver to you a distinctive and original design that is tailored to your individuality.
We can begin the process by looking through our many in-store designs or browsing through any of our design portfolios. We will provide a working sketch, a full rendering, a wax model, and then move on to the finished piece. Our team carefully and deliberately follows this process, ensuring full communication and understanding throughout the custom design process. You should expect no surprises, except for the delight you will feel once we bring your project to completion.
We use only new, high-quality metals and gemstones or incorporate pre-owned and family heirloom jewelry. We employ processes such as hand-crafted metalwork, model wax carvings, lost wax casting, and CAD-CAM technology.
Our workmanship is refined and precise producing Custom Jewelry Designs that are artisan crafted.
From sketch to the finished piece
Lee Dorn is a true artist. He has the ability to talk to you about your vision for a unique piece of jewelry & then turn it into reality. I had a beautiful diamond in a traditional setting that had been sitting in a safe deposit box, unworn for a number of years. Lee asked me to describe the ideal setting as he sketched my description. I fell in love, first with the sketch and then when I saw the ring! Lee Dorn Jewelers had transformed my ordinary ring into an extraordinarily beautiful work of art!?Susan H., Middleton, WI
