Design Process

Step 1 : Consultation and Concepts

Each new piece starts with an initial consultation.  (This can be in many forms from: face-to-face, a phone call, an email, or a virtual call) During this process Michael utilizes a questionnaire to break down the clients wants and needs, expectations, budget, and timeline.  As you are going over these key elements, he will be translating the information into conceptual sketches and discussing your building options.

Step 2 : Design and Stone Selection

Michael hand selects and curates a special selection of stones for you to choose from.  If you are not familiar with gemstone or diamond purchasing, Michael has extensive knowledge as a Graduate Gemologist and will walk you through making an informed choice on what suits you and the project best.  After your stone is chosen, Michael will finalize the design with a 3d model in either CAD or wax so that you can visualize your new piece.

Step 3 : Production and Delivery

Once this model is approved our skilled artisan gold and platinum smiths will start on your hand-crafted piece.  After each piece is complete, Michael inspects for quality control, photographs it, and documenting all necessary information for an insurance appraisal.  Upon approval, he will contact the client to schedule a delivery date and method.
