Looking For Custom? Look No Further!

If you’re looking for a custom piece of jewelry, you needn’t look any further. You can walk into The Jewelers Center with a dream in your head and one of our many talented jewelers can create it exactly to your specifications. Our building houses every type of jewelry design business required to create a completely custom piece of jewelry. We have wax carvers, high tech CAD rendering and 3D printing, casting houses, stone setters, loose gemstone dealers and importers and polishers. Your custom piece of jewelry can be created completely within The Jewelers Center.

The process of creating a piece of jewelry goes from the drawing board (ie – your dream) to creating a wax model of the idea, to then casting the piece in your desired metal, and then finishing it and setting in any stones.

Depending on what you’re looking to create, there is a jeweler who can do what you want. Some concepts are more sculptural in nature. In that case, you’d want to find one of our jewelers who specializes in hand carved waxes. This requires a steady hand and a very artistic touch to be able to sculpt and form the wax into the desired shape.

Other concepts are more exacting, with precise measurements that will allow the piece to hold gemstones of specific sizes. A design concept like this is better suited to a CAD (Computer Aided Design) rendering. Some of our jewelers have software that allows them to create a 3D model of your idea. This way, you can visualize what the piece will look like and see it from all angles before it gets cast.

Once approved, the jeweler will then use a 3D printer that creates the wax model. Then the piece is cast, finished, stones set and delivered to you!

An entirely unique, custom designed by you piece of jewelry created in Chicago. What a gift!
