Custom Jewelry Design

by Towne Jewelers of Windsor

From Concept to Creation

At Towne Jewelers, custom-designed jewelry is our specialty. We understand the sentimental value jewelry can have in a person’s life. Whether you want to re-imagine unworn jewelry or use a special stone out of a family heirloom, we can design a new piece to help cherish those family memories into a fun new design to last for years to come!

Using the latest in CAD technology, we create designs in 3D that depict every detail as it will appear when your custom design reaches its final finished form, so there are no surprises. This approach also allows us to make changes along the way so that your finished piece will be exactly the way you imagined it.

Maybe you want to use parts of your mother’s or grandmother’s wedding ring and turn it into your own?  Dream of wearing a truly one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry? Here at Towne Jewelers will take you through the custom jewelry process from concept to a completed piece you’ll love to wear for years to come.

Getting to Know Each Other

It’s important that we get to know each other and learn more about your unique wants and needs when it comes to designing your custom jewelry piece.

Sketches & Concept Ideas Coming to Life

Once I have an idea of what you’re looking for in your design, I’ll start sketching out plans and ideas. We will then come up with a preliminary idea to take to the next phase of production.


Select Your Stones & Metals

Let’s get your materials squared away and start selecting which stones and metals you’d like included in your custom piece of jewelry! At this point, we can provide you with an estimate. We can also provide options using different metals and gemstones to create a piece within your budget.

CAD Jewelry Design

CAD Modeling

Once a sketch and materials are finalized, we use a computer assist design (CAD) program to build a 3D image of your ring. The CAD images will show you realistic views of your design and how it will look when it is finished. We’ll review together and make any requested changes. Once the 3D model is approved the piece moves to wax model or hand fabrication. 

3D Printing Jewelry

Wax Carving & 3D Printing

A wax model is created using our 3D printer to print a full-size wax model of your design. This latest technology enables us to create a wax prototype that shows the exact detail and dimensions of your project.

Gem Stone Setting, Polishing & Final Delivery

After the wax model is created the piece is ready for casting. Once cast, our expert craftsmen sand, polish and meticulously set the gemstones. For diamond engagement rings, the center diamond is set last with the utmost care and precision. The jewelry is then brought to a final bright polish and delivered to you!
