Custom Design

Custom Jewelry at an Affordable Price

Jewelry Store, Jewelry Appraisal & Jewelry Shop Albany, NY

There is no limit to designing your own custom piece of jewelry. We specialize in custom jewelry design and we enjoy designing and creating exclusive pieces for our clients. You may choose to use your heirloom or existing pieces of jewelry to create a fresh new piece that fits your style. Or you may choose to start from scratch. If so, we’ll collaborate with you on a custom design suited to your taste and budget.

When you hear the words “custom design,” you may think the cost will be extreme, but that’s not the case at all. At Philip Alexander Jewelers you will actually pay less for creating your own custom design because your custom piece of jewelry is made exclusively for you and bypasses the “designer-to-retailer mark-up.”

With your jewelry design idea and our expertise, creating and capturing your very own family heirloom is such a rewarding experience! So give us a call and make an appointment for a free consultation.

How It Works

1) We’ll start with an in-store consultation and discuss what you have in mind and get those creative juices flowing! You’re welcome to bring along any drawings, photos, or Pinterest boards or even share an actual piece of jewelry that excites you! 

We’ll chat about all of the possibilities including stone and metal choices. Once we confirm the design ideas, we’re ready to move forward.
2) Then we’ll create a wax mold and/or a CAD, (computer-aided design), depending on the design, within days of consultation. Upon your inspection, we’ll then fine tune your custom design until you’re happy and ready to continue.

3) The next step is casting your design, which can be done using our metal or yours. It’s your preference. You may then opt to see the raw casting or the metal polished before the final step.

4) Our master jewelers will then finish your custom design by using their stone setting expertise for your diamonds and/or gemstones and highlight the shine, texture, and detail to your perfected custom piece of jewelry.
