Capturing stories through custom design
There is nothing more meaningful than turning memories into wearable pieces of art. Designing a custom piece of jewelry with Elaine B Jewelry is an intimate and creative process that you’ll carry with you for a lifetime. Although we have many in-stock jewelry designs that also have stories , we know there’s something truly special about going custom. With your voice heard in every detail, there’s nothing quite like building your dream design from scratch. Our team understands that each individual has a unique reason for wanting a custom piece. That's why our custom design process is a seamless collaboration that brings these stories to life with your needs met in every detail. From the initial concept to the final creation, the experience is marked by precision, passion, and a commitment to capturing your dream design. Whether it's a symbol of love, a representation of milestones, or a cherished heirloom getting a redesign - our jewelers are ready to hear your story!
Storytelling Through Design
Each custom piece is a story waiting to be told. From the initial spark of inspiration to the final creation, the journey is marked by collaboration and creativity.
EBJ’s approach to storytelling through design is perfect for creating custom pieces that weave tales of love, milestones, and cherished memories.
Here’s one we love from Mirijam & Sam:
"We chose EBJ because from the first time we walked in, we knew that our vision would be understood. Everyone here has always been incredibly kind and excellent at communicating with us. It was such a fun process from start to finish designing our own ring and learning about all of the options that there were."
Congrats to Mirijam & Sam!
And another custom story we were so thankful to be a part of - Ned & Carter!
"Designing our engagement ring with Elaine B was an absolutely ideal process. My fiancée and I had stopped in at multiple other jewelers in SE Michigan and never quite felt comfortable, until we walked into Elaine B. From our very first conversation with them, we felt at ease and knew that we were being listened to. The entire team at Elaine B was a joy to work with – they were thoughtful and clearly listened to our initial design preferences and their suggestions were always great. They created a wonderful option of stones for us to consider and the final design is simply perfect for us. I can’t recommend them enough!"
Exploring Your Personal Style
Explore a spectrum of materials, styles, and inspirations for your custom design! Whether it's an art deco inspired engagement ring or a minimalist family heirloom, we encourage you to really think about what will best suit you and your lifestyle long term. It’s also important to choose a jewelry designer whose work you already love when deciding to go custom! At Elaine B Jewelry, for example, we enjoy working with people who already enjoy our designs and want to use them as a jumping off point. Although we often see inspiration for designs on Pinterest, Instagram, etc - we will simply use them as inspiration for a design more in our aesthetic and never outright copy a ring from another designer. This keeps your project a true one-of-a-kind piece and allows us to explore our artistry together!
Check out this beautiful elongated cushion design for Tricia & Josh.
"My best friend Alea and I went ring shopping for fun back in November of 2022 and that's when I first saw a cushion cut diamond and I fell in love with it. I loved the soft, rounded edges of the cushion cut. I tried on many different styles over the next few months, but I kept coming back to the cushion. Through more research, I found the elongated cushion and knew that was the style that I wanted."
We love how Tricia's sparkling personality also shines through her custom ring!
From revitalizing heirloom pieces to creating entirely new designs inspired by familial roots, custom jewelry design is a bridge between the past and the present. We love when you trust us with a piece of jewelry that means the world to you - we take special care of your heirlooms and treat them with the highest care. Taking a meaningful piece out of the jewelry box and giving it a new reason for everyday wear is one of our favorite things to do at EBJ.
These custom pieces become modern heirlooms, passing down stories and sentiments through generations. They encapsulate the essence of legacy and heritage, that’s why EBJ is dedicated to crafting timeless pieces to last a lifetime.
We were so inspired by this heirloom redesign. We designed two stacking rings created from multiple pieces of jewelry.
