Diamonds Done Your Way
The art of custom jewelry design boasts an illustrious history, dating back to antiquity. From its earliest inception, jewelry crafted from natural materials like stone, wood and feathers were tailor-made to suit the preferences and sensibilities of individual wearers. Ancient civilizations like Egypt lavished their pharaohs with intricate and opulent gold and gemstone pieces. In Greece and Rome, bespoke adornments, ranging from exquisite pendants to charming earrings, graced distinguished patrons. Today, this ancient tradition continues deep in the heart of Houston at Thomas Markle Jewelers.
Indeed, Thomas Markle Jewelers upholds the belief that custom jewelry should be accessible to all, not just pharaohs and queens. Employing state-of-the-art technology and exemplifying pristine customer service, the experts at Thomas Markle Jewelers ensure that the custom design process becomes a seamless and gratifying experience for each customer.
Under the guidance of accomplished designers, custom jewelry is brought to life through a straightforward four-step process. The culmination of this artistic endeavor yields a treasure of unrivaled quality, destined to be cherished for generations to come.
STEP ONE: DREAM
Clients are encouraged to bring sketches, pictures, or show their Pinterest boards to better illustrate their vision. If unsure of how to articulate their preferences, the skilled designers will assist in refining the initial design concept.
STEP TWO: DESIGN
After an initial sketch has been drafted, a Computer Aided Design (CAD) is created. This CAD shows a 3-D rendering of the piece. Once a CAD has been approved, a wax model will be cast and available to try on. Any further refinements will be made with this model.
STEP THREE: CREATE
After the wax model is approved, the artisans will begin casting the design using the finest metals. Once the casting is complete, the gemstones are set and polished to perfection until the entire piece is ready to be unveiled.
STEP FOUR: CHERISH
When the piece is ready, it’s time for the much anticipated reveal of its final form. It will be ready to be held and put on, and for its luminous shine to be enjoyed. With Thomas Markle Jewelers, customers have the opportunity to create a stunning work of art that will be cherished for a lifetime.
