Make your vision a reality
Custom jewelry from Medlars Jewel Masters blends Old World craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology to create one-of-a-kind designs that are perfectly executed.
The Process of Custom Design
At our first custom design consultation, we’ll focus on your ideas and goals and draw a rough sketch of your piece. Then, using virtual reality software, we’ll convert the sketch to a three-dimensional, full-color image.
The second consultation enables you to see a virtual representation of your custom jewelry. You will see your design in color from multiple angles, study the style and metal work, and have a chance to make any necessary adjustments. When you are satisfied that the design is right, we’ll begin crafting your dream into reality.
Once your design is created in wax to your precise specifications (using a 3D printer or milling machine), we’ll have you view it in person. This will allow you to see your design in its exact scale. Then we’ll pour investment (similar to plaster of Paris) around the wax in a metal cylinder, and when dry, place it in a special oven.
As it heats, the wax will melt away, leaving an exact reproduction of your piece inside the plaster. Afterwards, we’ll use a centrifuge to force super-heated, liquid precious metals into the plaster cavity. Once everything cools, we’ll break open the plaster, exposing the raw casting. It’s now ready to finish, polish, and set the gems using a tool called the Graver-Max that allows us to do very complicated settings with unparalleled accuracy.
The Final Product
When the process is finished, we’ll present you with a one-of-a-kind piece of heirloom-quality jewelry that meets your exact specifications. As a bonus, we’ll also appraise the piece for your insurance company.
