For three decades, we have created masterpieces in 14K, 18K, and platinum.  Although we use the latest technology to ensure quality we also use the old-world charm of hand-polishing and setting.

We care about your jewelry and keep you informed along the way to make sure your vision is beyond your expectations. Use your old diamonds or ours.

With our 3D software and unlimited imagination your jewelry dream can come true.   

Almost everything begins as a simple idea before it becomes an object we can see and touch.  Even if you are not an artist you still can present your idea in a way to make your vision understood and come alive.  

All our jewelry is created from the purest 24-karat gold and is blended with the finest alloys.  Nothing is wasted.  The remaining gold sprues that remain after casting is refined and recycled into new jewelry.  

Creating your own custom piece of jewelry is a special and unique way to express yourself and commemorate a special occasion. Whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind engagement ring, a personalized necklace, or a custom-designed pair of earrings, the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating your own piece of jewelry.

One of the biggest benefits of creating your own custom jewelry is the ability to choose the exact design that you want. You can select from a wide variety of precious and semi-precious stones, as well as different types of metal, such as gold, silver, or platinum.

Another benefit of creating your own custom jewelry is the opportunity to work with a skilled jeweler who can help bring your vision to life. We guide you through the process and make suggestions based on our expertise, ensuring that your piece is exactly what you want.

When creating your own custom piece of jewelry, you can also choose to incorporate sentimental elements, such as using a family heirloom stone or incorporating a special symbol or design that holds special meaning to you. This can make your piece even more special and meaningful.

With Gallery of Diamonds jewelers, you can create a piece of jewelry that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Since ancient times humans have scribbled their imagination in caves and the sand.  Today it is as simple as doodling on paper.  Since 1991, Gallery of Diamonds has transformed thousands of these doodles into lifetime jewelry. 

How to Create Your Own Custom Jewelry Design

Many jewelry ideas are sparked from other ideas.  Some people may see a picture of a piece of jewelry but would prefer it was bigger, more dainty, less swirly, etc.  Unfortunately, to keep production costs down, many jewelry companies make a select amount of jewelry designs and sell the same ones over and over.  It is not uncommon to see the exact piece of jewelry in different jewelry stores because they many times use the same manufacturers. 

If seven is your favorite number you might want seven diamonds in a ring.  If blue is your favorite color you may want to add a few sapphires in your necklace. If you are celebrating a ten-year anniversary or the birth of a child you may want a piece of jewelry to symbolize these cherished milestones of life. You can even add a name or a geometric design that has special meaning to you or your loved one. 

If you want to reset or redesign your old jewelry, send it to us by registered mail.  You may scribble your thoughts or email a picture of a jewelry piece that sparks your imagination.  It is helpful if we can see at least two views of the piece (like top view and side view.)

Ring Size

Although most rings can be sized, we like to get it right the first time. You may have to send us a ring that fits you perfectly or you can determine your finger size from a local fine jeweler.  An established jeweler will cheerfully do this for you. 

Necklace Length

Chain lengths usually come in increments of two inches. The most popular lengths are 16, 18, 20 and 24 inches. Remember that for every two inches of chain length will add one inch of length from your neckline. 

You can circle parts of your photo to identify areas that you want to modify.  We love helping customers and are always here to talk to you in person or on the phone.  

Once we determine what you desire we tell you the cost to make it and the estimated time of completion. The current completion date is 21 days.  We communicate with you often along the journey of your one-of-kind custom jewelry design with illustrations or photos to make sure the finished result matches your dream.  

Before we begin work on your custom jewelry design, we make sure you approve and that we have a clear understanding of the finished result.
