Are you ready to design your own jewelry? Lee is your guy! Let’s discuss the process.

The Custom Jewelry Process

We will work with you to develop a unique jewelry design specific to your tastes and personality. Whether from a concept, photo, or idea you already have or a design developed here with us in-house, our objective is to deliver to you a distinctive and original design that is tailored to your individuality.

The process can begin by looking through our many in-store designs or browsing through our design portfolios. Once a design idea is established, we provide a working sketch to a complete rendering, wax model, and on to the finished piece. The process is meticulous and deliberate, allowing the thorough communication and understanding necessary during the custom design process. There should be no surprises except for delight once the project is complete.

We supply only new, high-quality metals and gemstones, or we will use pre-owned and family heirloom jewelry. Hand-crafted metalwork, model wax carvings, lost wax casting, and CAD-CAM technology is among the processes we use.

Our artistry is refined and precise, producing a custom artisan-crafted product. Our clients say it best.

“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 had transformed my ordinary ring into an extraordinarily beautiful work of art!”
