Alorann Hand model

What makes your customization process so unique?

We have approximately 1000 different styles that can be used as a starting point, all of which can be modified to your specifications to produce a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art just for you. This process of picking a basic style and then morph it to your likes saves you money because a large percent of the design is already done. Why keep reinventing the wheel? All of the unique modifying work is done while you watch. We even show the ring on a realistic 3D movable hand. You pick the appropriate finger to show your ring and even pick your favorite nail polish.

I can't come into your office; can you still make a custom design for me?

Certainly!  We are happy to work with you by email, or over the web using an internet screen sharing site. See our Remote Design page for more information. We follow up with phone calls and send you drawings, pictures, and computer generated renderings.

Can I use my own gold?

We will recycle your old gold by turning it in to our refiner, and give you credit towards your custom in effect we ARE using your gold.

Can I use my own gemstones?

Absolutely! We are more than happy to set your heirloom diamonds or gemstones in a new piece. Let's take those old pieces of jewelry that are broken or you no longer wear and make them into something new and exciting!

How can I be sure I’m getting my gems back when I leave them to be set in my new piece of jewelry?

This is always on a person’s mind when they leave gems. If you are close to the Capital District of upstate NY (Albany/Schenectady/Troy), you can stop at our office and we will show you the identifying characteristics (inclusions/fingerprint) of your gem(s). We do this while you watch on our video microscope. We will also take a photomicrograph of the gem(s) showing the identifying marks, for your records and for future reference when we deliver your new custom made jewelry. At time of delivery we show you the inclusions again in the video microscope to compare with your copy of the photomicrograph picture. Give us a call to set up an appointment. 518-356-3219.

How much does it cost?

This is an important question that is not so easy to answer. A custom made lady’s 3mm wide, size 5 ½, 14 karat gold wedding band with no gems will start around $400 with gold at $1650 per ounce. Your cost depends on several factors: the current metal market cost, type of metal (18K will increase price 10K will lower price), amount of metal (the more the piece weighs the more it will cost) and whether or not you use your own gems or need to purchase new ones.
