What if I'm not a jewelry designer?
That's ok, we are the jewelry designers so you don't have to be. You supply the vision and we'll take it from there. You don't have to know a thing about jewelry to get the ring of your dreams. Of course, once we have the first version of your design finished we'll show it to you and make any changes or corrections that you want.
Doesn't custom design cost a lot?
Not really, this is one of the biggest misconceptions about custom design jewelry. Using high tech computer technology, we can keep costs down and quality up. The cost is really determined by the design and what gems and metals it calls for. In fact, one of the major reasons for using custom design is to make similar or modified designer jewelry. This actually costs than less, in most cases, than if you were to go the traditional route buying it from the store.
I'm not really sure what I want, is that ok?
That's fine. Many of our clients start with nothing more than a fuzzy idea of what they want, and that's why custom design is so perfect. Our designers will work with you and help you discover what you really want. That's part of the fun of custom design; we can help you get what you've been dreaming of even if you don't know what it is. If you just want us to make you a creative piece of jewelry to fit your budget than you might want to try our Single Step Order Form. All you need to know is how much you want to pay!
What if I don't like something about the design after I see it?
No problem, one of the benefits of our high tech design process is that you can see the design before it's made into a wax. At this stage, just tell us what changes you want to make and we'll do it. Only after all the fine tuning is done and you ok the design do we move on to actually making the design.
What is "Personalization" in custom designed jewelry?
Personalization is basically putting a piece of yourself in your design. If you really like baseball, why not put a home plate shaped cut out on the side of your ring? The possibilities are endless. Just let us know your passion and we'll work it into your design.
I saw a design I liked but it was too expensive, can custom design help?
Yes it can. Just show us a picture or describe the design you liked and we'll do the rest. If you only liked a part of the design or had an idea to make it better for you, let us know and we'll incorporate it into your design to make it uniquely yours. The best part is the finished product will be cheaper than the designer piece that it emulates!
How does the process work?

What about jewelry other than rings?
Custom design is not limited just to rings. We can make all sorts of jewelry pieces like pendants and earrings. Custom design is a blank page; you can fill it with your dreams and desires, whatever shape they may take.
Can you make my design in Platinum?
Yes, in fact, we can make your design in almost any metal. 14k, 18k, 24k, yellow, white, green, red gold, platinum, you name it. We aren't tied to any one metal, we're here to work with you to create the jewelry you want.
What about the gemstones?
At Angelo's Creations our designers work with a trained and certified gemologist to make sure that the design compliments each gemstone's unique characteristics. Some gems are softer than others, some have color issues that need special attention, if the designer doesn't know this he can get into trouble. By tapping into the wealth of knowledge our on staff gemologist has, our designers can understand all these subtleties and nuances from the beginning of the design. Bottom line, we have the training and skill to make your gems shine.
Can you use my old gold and gems?
Absolutely, it's one of our favorite projects to take an old piece and transform it into something new and greater than the sum of its parts. We will gladly take your old gems and incorporate them into your new design. As for the metal, we will give you credit for it, but we use all new gold (or platinum) to make the design, for maximum quality.
