Unique Custom Jewelry
The art of making custom jewelry dates back thousands of years, to a time when ancient civilizations began crafting jewelry for personal wear. Almost all jewelry was custom jewelry as most pieces were commissioned by the well to do. Created to display gemstones, show faith, and signify social or material status, artists made jewelry that ranged from stringed shells to tiaras and crowns worn by the ruling classes.
This custom jewelry creation was made for a lady who loved both skulls and butterflies, yet wanted them in the same piece. This is what we came up with.
Throughout the ages, the continual discovery of new gems, precious metals and ornamental materials, combined with advancement of tools, metallurgy, and introduction of CAD have made it possible for almost everyone to own Custom Jewelry.
Show you’re in the know with this custom Dr Who Tardis Necklace. This one is 1 inch tall and about a half inch wide, but it would benefit from being made slightly larger. This one has been plated in Black Rhodium, but it could also be left in the color of the metal it is cast in.
At Valeria Fine Jewelry, our designers have passionately pursued the art of custom jewelry making for many years now. Creating custom jewelry out of gold, platinum, diamonds and precious stones, our master jewelers create your piece form start to finish. While still rooted in the spirit of old world craftsmen and hand fabrication, the equipment and techniques employed for making jewelry have changed significantly since such times. In fact, jewelry making processes have advanced more in the past 20 years than in all the time preceding it.
This Sapphire 3 Stone Engagement Ring is a stunning take on an old classic. There are diamond accents on both the sides and top of the ring. What we like about this one is how the prongs are formed and they you can see through the ring.
Before CAD, Unique Custom Jewelry was created by carving a wax. Miniature sculptures where carved by artisans in preparation for lost wax casting. Using the lost wax process, models were sculpted and molded in investment, which is kind of like plaster. Then, the precious metal was melted by torch and thrown into the cavity with a manually wound centrifuge. The wax is burned away and the metal piece of remained.
This custom 2 tone diamond wedding ring was cast separately in yellow and white gold and then assembled. Bezel set in each metal is a 4mm diamond. Other, and smaller type of stones could be used as well.
Now, almost all Custom Jewelry is designing and created in using CAD. Through CAD jewelry design, skilled designers can create original models in a 3d world. Once completed, their works are milled from wax or grown in resin with high tech equipment driven by complex software. The casting process is still the same though

In the past, Custom Jewelry designs were preserved using uncured rubber that was vulcanized around finished pieces to form permanent molds that could be reused for an identical copy of the piece. Today, we need only save the computer file containing the design in order to regrow them in the future.
