Custom Design

The Process

Our custom design process is simple; send us your original design sketch or images of designs that inspire you and provide some basic information on the form below. Our team of designers will discuss the design details, our ethical sourcing and center stone options with you and provide a quote. Engagement style rings start at $1,800, wedding style bands and fine jewelry start at $1,500 in 14K gold. Once the design direction is established, we will start the order and take a non-refundable, 50% deposit on the design. You will receive the initial renderings (CAD) of the design in two to four business days; adjustments or changes 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. If the design is abandoned or significantly changed, the design deposit is retained for work performed. Once the design is approved and the final design balance paid, we begin fabrication. The entire custom design process takes between four and ten weeks to complete.

Your Stone or Ours

Laura Preshong is happy to assist in setting a family heirloom stone. All stones brought to us for use must be secured in a setting or mount. We are unable to work with loose stones, i.e. stones wrapped in paper, boxes, temporary mounts, etc. A  mandatory fee of $400 per center stone under 2.0 carats, $500 for 2.0 carats and up, and/or $50 per melee will be added to the design price to cover working with your stone. A signed Setting Waiver will be required prior to leaving any stones with us for use, including removing stones from old mounts, appraisals or design work. We require that you insure your stone prior to leaving it with us and that all stones have a current appraisal; we do not carry any type of insurance for client stones (stones not purchased through Laura Preshong), and are free from liability for loss, theft or damage. Diamonds purchased through Laura Preshong are insured FREE for one year immediately upon purchase, and are covered during the setting process. Client-owned metals and diamond melee (small diamonds) with measurements less than 2mm cannot be used in custom designs.
