We know what it’s like — you know what you want.

Sometimes you know exactly what you want, other times it’s just a sketchy idea. But you can’t find it anywhere, and the “salespeople” aren’t listening to you.

Wouldn’t it be easier to just skip all that?

At Sands Company Jewelers, we’re not just a jewelry store. We do what most stores can’t: we create stunning pieces of art right along with you.

We believe you deserve to sit down with an expert Artisan whose time is yours, who will strive to help you with exactly what you want because they’re not working on commission.

Whether it’s a custom engagement ring you’ve been thinking of for years, or a family heirloom you’d like recreated with a bit more sparkle, our in-house team of professional artists can help you create a wide variety of gifts for every special occasion!

Step One: The Drawing

Getting your ideas on paper is the first step toward bringing your custom piece to life. With years of experience in fine art design, we can work with you to put the idea together.

Step Two: 3D Modeling

From there, the design moves to our modeling software, giving us the freedom to change a variety of elements and continue to perfect the piece until it matches your imagination.

Step Three: Wax Carving

Before your design is poured in precious metal, an exact replica is first carved from wax, which will serve as the base for the plaster mold.

Step Four: Casting

The plaster mold is created around the wax carving and is then used to pour the precious metal of your choice. This form of making jewelry, called lost-wax casting, has been used since 4500 BC.

Step Five: Setting Stones and Final Styling

Setting the stones, adding the fine details, and polishing the metal are the final tasks. The finished product puts your ideas right in your hand.
