3. Finalize Your Design

Now that you have your gemstone(s) and design, you’ll receive CADs within a few days. Let us know if any aspect of the design needs to be altered; we can resend new CADs until you’re thrilled with what you see.  A wax version of your design will be 3D printed so that you can hold it in your hands and examine every angle.  Once we have your approval, we will begin handcrafting your custom piece in our workshop!
