A Jeweler's Hands

Jewelers work in an artisan tradition that goes back thousands of years. In fact, many of the tools they use today are similar to those used by craftspeople 800 years ago!

Modes of Design

Jewelers design doing either countersketching - sketching with pencils or ink - or using Computer Aided Design (CAD). But these are far more than pictures! A jewelry designer typically sketches multiple perspectives of a piece, to imagine not only how the item will look, but how it will be made.

Design Tools

A jewelry designer's tools are like any other artist's tools: charcoal, colored pencils, paints, fine paper for those who sketch, or a tablet or computer terminal for CAD. And when the inspiration hits them (or you ask for a sketch and there's nothing else handy) a napkin or the back of a receipt will do!

Jewelry Design

A Service from A&J Jewelers

We believe that you should never have to settle with anything ordinary, off-the-shelf, and mass produced in a factory overseas. Our designers, artisans, and setters will help you create something that nobody else in this world has - your own personal expression in jewelry.

Inspiration

We begin by discussing the special piece you would like to create. We learn about your ideas and inspirations and we’ll craft a custom design that expresses your vision.

Design

After we have designed your special piece, we’ll develop a 3D virtual CAD drawing of your work of art and present you with a full sized wax model for your approval.

Production

Next, A&J Jewelers will cast your item with precious metal, carefully hand-set each stone, and finalize the crafting by polishing and finishing the piece to perfection. Voila! A new, beautiful family heirloom.
