Custom Jewelry Design in Fort Wayne

From Dream to Reality: Premier Custom Jewelry Design

Custom Design Sketch

Custom jewelry design is so much more than a sparkling gemstone or diamond set in a band of gold. Far beyond its dazzling appearance, a custom jewelry design brings with it a unique story of you and the significant moments in your life shared with loved ones. This personal story attached to your jewelry can't be replicated, let alone communicated, through a new piece of jewelry selected out of a case. This is why our team at Bradley Gough Diamonds takes great pride in our custom jewelry design, allowing you to make your dream jewelry a reality and tell your personal story.

Here at Bradley Gough Diamonds, we’re honored to be your locally owned jewelry store in Fort Wayne. Beyond carrying a wide selection of top designer brands, loose diamonds, and more, our dedicated and knowledgeable custom jewelry designers create custom rings for women, custom wedding bands, custom engagement rings, and so much more. We want to help you celebrate life’s special moments and the people you hold dear to your heart with a custom jewelry design that tells your story.

Custom Designing for You!

Custom designing your dream piece involves a significant time commitment in concept, design, and execution. But at the end of this process, the results speak for themselves. Imagine owning a high-quality, finely crafted design made just for you – a composite of your desires and your ideas, along with our advice, design abilities, and technical execution.

By working with our custom jewelry designers, you can take the meaning and memories from those jewelry pieces that you cherish but aren’t quite your style and transform them into a new piece of jewelry you’ll be excited to wear for years to come. Or yet again, start from scratch and bring us your ideas! Our design team will handle it from there, helping you through the entire creation process!

Custom-Designed Jewelry Process 

Our custom jewelry design process is all about YOU and YOUR JEWELRY, beginning with your ideas and continually building and executing with your input. Our designers will listen to you so that your final piece is everything that you could have wanted, and more! 

The best place to start is simply by bringing an idea to us here at Bradley Gough! Bring in a story, a sketch, a photo, or choose a few of your favorite pieces on our website for inspiration. This will help our designers get an idea of what you’d like your dream design to look like. We’ll then take that idea and move to initial sketches, CAD designs, wax molds, further one-on-one consultations, and finally delivering to you your dream custom jewelry design with your input and assistance throughout the entire process.

Custom Redesign Jewelry 

Re-designing your jewelry is also a great way to bring new life to an older piece. Often we inherit vintage, antique, or estate jewelry heirlooms. Although sentimental, it may not be something you’d choose to wear on a daily basis. Allow us to take an out-of-date design and customize it into something that you'll be proud to wear often! Start a new chapter in that piece's life with assistance from Bradley Gough’s custom jewelry design team. Now you can have the ability to wear a meaningful piece of jewelry that is equal parts sentimental and fashionable! 





Frequently asked Questions (FAQ):


What kinds of custom jewelry can I make? 

The possibilities for custom jewelry design are practically endless! Any type of jewelry piece can be customized. That's the beauty of customization. Whether you’re starting from scratch, referencing a picture found online, or upgrading and customizing an unworn jewelry item from your jewelry box, bring whatever you have into Bradley Gough Diamonds, and let’s work together to create the custom jewelry design of a lifetime!  

What does “CAD” mean? 

CAD or Computer-Aided Design is when computers are used for the creation, modification, analysis, and optimization of a design. CAD improves the quality of design. The software program helps complete a great visual of the prospective design. From these CAD designs, we can begin to make Wax Molds and initial mockups of your final jewelry design for text fitting and further modifications to your liking.

How long does it take to create a piece of custom jewelry?

The time it takes to deliver you the custom jewelry design of your dreams depends on a few factors. First of which is how complex the overall custom jewelry design will be, and how many custom orders are ahead of yours on our scheduled calendar. After the consultation, it can take up to one to three weeks for rendering and CAD designs to be completed, one to two weeks for the wax molds to be finished, and two to three weeks for your finished custom jewelry design to be finalized. As always, our team works as hard as possible to get your dream design turned around, exactly as you had envisioned, in a manner as quickly as possible!
