For decades, we have taken great pride in every IF & Co. piece crafted. Each piece we work on goes through an extensive process from start to finish, all to ensure every piece comes out the best it can possibly be. Over the years, we've created a number of pieces. To some, ordering custom jewelry may seem overwhelming, but you can keep these pointers in mind to simplify the process towards to ordering a custom piece.
Creating a custom jewelry piece can be an exciting process, especially whenever that ingenious, original chain or gold grill idea spontaneously comes to mind. Customization adds a great sentiment to your individuality in the form of an artistic piece of your creative mind. It represents an organic idea which stemmed from your own creative mind and is something that should be crafted to be appreciated for lifetimes.
There are many things to consider when ordering a customized piece of jewelry from IF & Co. the right way. The specifics of each piece will come from you. Our team of experienced craftsman will turn your most creative jewelry ideas into a reality and do it in a fashion which meets our standards. Everything down from hitting pencil-on-sketchbook to gathering the best mix of hand-selected diamonds to preparing the perfect gold blends matter. The process of creating jewelry you imagine is what we continue striving to perfect. Not only do we customize pendants and grills, but just about anything else including engagement rings, bracelets, earrings and watches too (and more). Consider the following when deciding to pull the trigger on a custom jewelry piece.
This is the easy part. One should know exactly what you want before approaching us. You may have already come up with an idea, which is likely a reason why you’re considering a custom piece. Perhaps you've even sketched out how you envision the custom piece to look. The more descriptive you are, the better. If you haven’t, feel free to jot down notes involving your idea that will help our team better understand your vision. You're encouraged to free your mind with your creativity when it comes to custom jewelry.
It's important to consider the size you want the piece to be. For pendants and necklaces, our Size Chart can help you on choosing what's right and best for you. For custom pendants, you'd be asked to specify how big you want the pendant to be. Normally, this can easily be stated by Height and Width. If it's a ring, we suggest you find out the size to make it at. For bracelets, we recommend you know your wrist size. Depending on what is being custom made, there are more factors involved, feel free to reach out to us if you need any help here.
Color comes from personal preference. No matter if it’s Yellow Gold, White Gold, Rose Gold or even Black Gold, it can be done. Yellow Gold is the staple of all golds, and is the most traditional color. White Gold is considered more subtle and modern, while Rose Gold serves a more unique tone. Regardless of choice, each gold color provides a different vibe and statement rooted from self-expression of oneself and should ultimately be decided by the bearer of the piece.
DIAMOND AND STONE STRUCTURE
Considering how you want this piece iced out. Did you want it Fully Iced? Partially Iced? Or just made in solid gold? Having diamonds set on a custom piece would bring the price up higher, but as a result it'll be that much more enjoyable. Mentioning the quality of diamonds you want to purchase along with where you want them set on your design will help you get quoted quicker. As a standard, we use our proprietary mix of VS-SI Diamonds, but other options are available as additional upgrades. When it comes to stones, you are not limited only to white diamonds. Get creative with colors, as there are many different colored diamonds and gemstones available to choose from. If you don't want any stones set on your custom jewelry piece, going stoneless is also an option.
It’s also important to figure out how much you want to spend and have a solid, reasonable budget in mind. There are many jewelers with different minimums which you can choose from for custom jewelry services, however, please understand that our general minimums are currently set at $2000 and up. Factors such as upgrading your gold to a higher karat, the magnitude of the piece, whether or not you want your piece to be fully iced out or partially iced out, as well as upgrading your diamonds to a higher quality mix, all play a role in the final price of your desired, custom jewelry piece. Understand these available options when considering your most comfortable budget.
