At Rick Terry Jewelry Design, we turn those dreams into reality and we are experts customizing Your Jewelry.

Feeling lost on where to start? Don’t worry! This article gives you important questions to ask our designers to make your custom experience smooth and successful.

Step 1: Know Your Style

Before getting into design details, take a moment to figure out your style. Do you love classic elegance or prefer modern, edgy designs? Maybe you like vintage vibes or bold statement pieces.

Step 2: Find Inspiration

Look at your current jewelry and see what design elements you like. Browse online resources like Pinterest or check out Rick Terry Jewelry Design’s past creations for inspiration. Think about historical jewelry styles, cool building designs, or even your favorite paintings. The possibilities are endless!

Step 3: Mood Boards

Once you have some inspiration, consider making a mood board. This is a collage of images that helps show our design team what you have in mind. Use online tools, magazine clippings, or even hand-drawn sketches to create a mood board that captures the essence of your dream piece.

Step 4: Bringing Your Vision to Life

The custom design process is a team effort. At Rick Terry Jewelry Design, clear communication matters to getting exactly what you want. Here are some important questions to ask our team to make sure your design experience is collaborative and successful:

  • What are the different ways to cut gemstones, and how does this affect the final look? (e.g., round for sparkle, emerald for a vintage feel)
  • Can you explain the different types of settings (prong, bezel, halo) and which ones work best with different gemstones?
  • How durable are different metals when choosing a setting?
  • Can we add custom touches like engravings or a special border design?
  • How will the metal you choose interact with the gemstone?
  • Do you offer unique or ethically sourced gemstones for my piece?

Setting Expectations and Feeling Comfortable:

  • How long does the custom design process typically take, from the first meeting to getting the finished piece?
  • Can I give feedback and make changes throughout the design process?
  • How do you make sure the gemstones used in my piece are ethically sourced and secure?

We know that deciding to create a custom piece is a big deal. The Rick Terry Jewelry Design team is committed to providing a comfortable and collaborative environment, so you feel involved throughout the process.
