Custom Design

With two in-house master jewelers with over 60 years of combined experience, Tenenbaum has the craftsmanship and expertise to bring your dream jewelry to life. We offer a full range of design services, including creating custom jewelry, replicating existing pieces and resetting existing stones.

We are also adept at reimagining older or family pieces, updating them to reflect your current style. Sometimes a treasured piece remains unworn, languishing in the bottom of your jewelry box. Resetting the stones or completely redesigning the piece allows you to extend the life of your heirloom and transform it into something wearable, while adding your own chapter to its story.

Our talented team will work with you through each step of the process, to create a personal and one-of-a-kind design.

 

Our Process

 

Inspiration

We start your design process by scheduling a meeting with one of our specialists to discuss your options. If you have a picture or drawing of what you want, we ask that you bring it with you. If you don’t quite know what you want, don’t worry! We have an inspiration binder full of pictures, and you can look to our collection of finished jewelry for ideas. If you are interested in resetting your stone, you can browse our inventory of mountings.

 

Estimate

Once you have settled on a design, our jewelers will put together an estimate for you. This will include an estimate on the cost as well as the time frame. The entire process usually takes 4-6 weeks, depending on the complexity of the job. Once you have approved the estimate, we ask for a 10% deposit.

 

Design

This is where our jewelers start to bring your design to life! We will provide a 3D CAD rendering or wax carving of the design. This step gives us the opportunity to make adjustments to the design before we move on to crafting your piece of jewelry.

 

Creation

Our master jewelers are experts in design, fabrication, gemstone setting and finishing…and they will put all of these skills to work on your special piece. Your completed piece of custom jewelry will be inspected to ensure that it meets our standards of quality. Once it has passed inspection, your specialist will contact you to let you know your dream jewelry is ready to be worn home!
