Describe your custom design. Get a quote. Have it made especially for you. 

 

We'll will assist you through every phase of your design process, from sketches to 3-D renders to choosing a finish for your one of a kind design.

To start, give us some details about your vision and your budget, and we'll assist in creating a design as special as you.

 

THE PROCESS

Our custom design process is simple; send us your original design sketch or images of designs you like and provide some basic information on the form to the right. Our team of designers will discuss the design details with you and provide a quote. Once the design direction is approved by you, we will start the order, take a 50% deposit on the setting, and create preliminary sketches.  Next, we provide you with 3D mechanical renderings (CAD) of the design from multiple angles; at this point adjustments can still be made to the design and materials if desired. The first two rounds of adjustments are complimentary, after that additional design charges apply. Once the design is approved and the final balance paid, we start fabrication. The entire process takes from four to eight weeks to complete.

Read more about the process in our Custom Design Agreement.

 

CUSTOM-MADE VS CUSTOMIZED

Custom-made is an original design made specifically for you, customized is the modification of an existing Laura Preshong design. Many customizations are completed at no charge, however if a file needs to be built or a render is required there is a 50.00 Customization Fee.
