Custom Jewelry Design

Jewelry exists outside of time. Artisans craft a piece using techniques honed over hundreds of years. Often, these pieces hold a treasured, intrinsic value and are passed on for generations.

D&H Jewelers is a design house that revels in the opportunity to blend these old-world techniques with modern technologies. We’ve created hundreds of custom jewelry pieces, collaborating with our clients through each stage of the project from conception to delivery. The meaningful process of creating one’s custom engagement ring, wedding band, or personal treasured item, is our specialty and something we delight in.

The Process

The custom jewelry design process starts with a one-on-one design consultation with our jewelry experts, after which, we hand-select the perfect conflict free gemstones and recycled metals for each tailor-made project. We work with:

    • GIA certified diamonds, including Botswana and Canadian origins
    • Up-cycled diamonds, including vintage and antique Old Mine Cut and European Cut diamonds with third party SCS Global ethical origin certification
    • Sapphires and colored stones from American and small artisan mines with clear chains of custody and Fair Trade certification
    • Rose-cut, unique shaped, and fancy colored diamonds

After the materials are chosen, the custom jewelry creation starts to take life through a process of sketching, wax modeling, and Computer Aided Design (CAD). We encourage client feedback at this stage, and once the design is finalized, each piece is individually hand-crafted by our team of jewelers.

We offer additional specialty design services such as resetting/redesigning your existing gemstones and jewelry, gemstone re-polishing, and hand engraving. All D&H custom-made jewelry includes a complimentary appraisal for insurance purposes.
