KNAR JEWELLERY PROCESS

Experience a custom jewellery design process tailored just for you.

Creating custom jewellery should be enjoyable and exciting. That’s why we believe in providing full transparency, expert support, and ongoing communication every step of the way.

From the initial consultation to the final unveiling, our experienced team patiently guides you throughout the entire journey. Whether it takes two weeks or several months, you’ll never feel rushed, pressured, or unpleasantly surprised.

1. Meet with us for a free inspiration session

The journey of crafting your custom-made jewellery begins with inspiration and evolves over the weeks to come. Whether you have a specific vision, photo, or other design requirements in mind, or need help clarifying your ideas, our knowledgeable and experienced team works closely with you to capture your unique desires and preferences. Then, we draw on our deep knowledge and years of experience to recommend sizes, shapes, and thicknesses that look best on specific hands, wrists, and necklines. Our collaborative approach ensures we cover every detail to express your ideal creation in the best possible way.

2. Review your no-obligation jewellery quote

We can often provide a general cost estimate during our initial consultation. But if your dream design is more intricate, or we need to source just the right gemstone, it will take a little time for our team to provide you with the most precise pricing. Once we’ve settled on these details, we kindly ask for a deposit of 30% to begin the conceptualization and design process. This upfront payment helps secure the necessary materials and allows our dedicated artisans to start their work.

3. Put us to work to conceptualize your design

Once we thoroughly understand your vision, our expert designers transform your ideas into stunning jewellery concepts. By combining the latest technology with traditional craftsmanship, we often create detailed sketches and 3D (CAD) renderings that allow you to visualize the final piece. Then, we collaborate with you closely to refine the design until it perfectly aligns with your expectations.

4. Choose high-quality materials for your exclusive jewellery piece

It’s no secret that the right materials are essential for creating standout pieces. We offer an extensive range of high-quality materials, including precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, and a wide variety of exquisite gemstones sourced from trusted suppliers. Whether you desire a rare diamond or a vibrant-coloured gemstone, we guide you through the selection process, ensuring every element is of the utmost quality and beauty.

5. Allow our expert jewellers to craft your custom jewellery design

We take immense pride in our exceptional attention to detail, unparalleled craftsmanship, and commitment to excellence. To bring your customized jewellery design to fruition, we create a wax mold, casted in the metal of your choice. Then, we meticulously handcraft your piece using traditional techniques combined with modern technology. Our artisans pour their passion and expertise into every step of the process, ensuring your jewellery is a true work of art.

6. Unleash your excitement as we reveal your final piece

The moment we unveil your custom jewellery is truly magical. We’re as excited as you are to reveal the final culmination of your vision and our craftsmanship. After all, a piece of jewellery exclusively designed for you or a loved one evokes a profound sense of pride and satisfaction. And we know it will serve as an ongoing reminder of your personal journey and the special moments you shared along the way.

7. Enjoy the benefits of a lasting relationship

Since we opened our doors to our first jewellery store in 1978, our commitment to excellence has extended far beyond the completion of your custom piece. We value the relationships we’ve built with our clients and remain dedicated to providing exceptional service and care for years to come. From professional cleanings and repairs to future customizations, we’re here to ensure your jewellery continues to shine with the same brilliance and love that went into its creation.

Get answers to common questions about our custom jewellery design service.

Deciding to create custom jewellery is a deeply personal and rewarding experience. To ensure you have all the information you need before taking the next step, we’ve put together our responses to the most common questions we receive. If you require additional information, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Custom jewellery costs vary depending on a variety of factors. The intricacy of your desired design, the type of metals and gemstones selected, and the required level of detail and craftsmanship all influence the final price. However, after our initial consultation, we’ll provide you with a quote that considers all these details.

While many assume custom jewellery costs more than ready-made pieces, this isn’t necessarily true. When you opt for a bespoke product, you have the freedom to select materials and designs that fit within your budget. The jeweller may also have specific gemstones or metals on hand, which can make it less costly to design a custom piece than to purchase a pre-crafted, finished item. In many cases, this means you can create a customized piece that is both distinctive and affordable.

Depending on the complexity of your envisioned design and the materials chosen, creating custom jewellery can take a few weeks to several months. Our thoughtful design process ensures we spend the necessary time to create a piece that truly reflects your vision and is a testament to our exceptional craftsmanship.

While we relish the personal connection and understanding that comes from in-store consultations, we completely understand that sometimes, it just isn’t feasible for Canadians who live out of province or life is simply just too busy. If it is impossible to visit us in person at either of our Guelph, Oakville or Toronto locations, we can offer a virtual consultation process. However, be mindful that finalizing your jewellery’s look is just as important as ensuring you will enjoy wearing it. Unfortunately, comfort and fit can only be affirmed in person.

Yes, a deposit is required. After working through the design process, we provide an upfront, no-obligation quote outlining the costs of crafting your unique piece. Upon acceptance of this quote, we require a deposit to initiate your project. This initial payment secures your commitment and enables us to invest in the high-quality materials necessary to complete your bespoke jewellery design.

Absolutely! Your selected diamond comes with its very own certification. We take pride in offering diamonds certified by the American Gem Society (AGS) and the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), which have now merged. These certifications not only underscore the quality and authenticity of your diamond but also provide a detailed account of its unique characteristics. As well, from time to time other laboratory certificates may be provided.

If you would like an appraisal, we’re happy to provide one. Upon your request, we’ll complete a thorough and expert inspection that meticulously describes your jewellery’s exact value and specifications for insurance or personal use. Specifically, our appraisal includes:

  • A detailed description of the piece, including type/grade of metal, manufacturing, number, and quality of gems (clarity, colour, cut, carat weight, grade proportions)
  • A digital photograph of the item
  • Appraiser’s signature
  • Date
  • Appropriate Value (at time of appraisal)

Since we opened our first store in 1978, we’ve meticulously selected the highest quality diamonds, gemstones, and metals from some of the finest jewellers around the globe. We only partner with reputable suppliers who share our commitment to quality, ethics, and sustainability, ensuring that every piece you receive is crafted with the highest standards and unmatched expertise.

Absolutely! Ethics and integrity are foundational to our operations. Our diamonds comply with the Kimberley Process established in 2003, designed to prevent the financing of civil wars through diamond purchases. This stringent process ensures that every diamond is certified conflict free with a supplier guarantee and a government-validated Kimberley Process Certificate upon international export. However, if you want added assurance regarding wages and working conditions, we suggest considering our lab-created diamonds.

Of course! Our selection is as diverse as our clientele, encompassing lab-grown, synthetic, and genuine options. We respect and appreciate your choices, whether driven by budget, environmental concerns, or personal preference. Our job is to bring your vision to life with the materials that align with your values and expectations, crafting a piece that’s truly yours.
