Dream to Design: The EBJ Custom Process

At Elaine B Jewelry, we believe that jewelry is more than just an accessory, it’s a way to tell your story. Each custom design is truly made with you in mind. From dream to design, it’s a collaborative process that you’ll carry with you for a lifetime. With your voice heard in every detail, there’s nothing quite like building your dream design from scratch.

The Beginning of Your Story

Every custom project starts with a conversation. We take the time to listen to your story, understanding the emotions and memories you wish to capture. Whether it’s a family heirloom, a milestone celebration, or a token of love, these narratives become the heart of our designs. Next, we’ll talk about all those fun design details you’ve been dreaming about - stone shape, material, width, and more!

Sketching Your Vision

With your story in mind, our skilled designers begin the creative process. Initial sketches are drawn, reflecting the essence of your vision. This stage is a blend of artistry and imagination, where your ideas start to take shape on paper. You’ll receive a custom project proposal with all the details!

Bringing Ideas to Life

Once the designs  are refined and approved, we move to the next phase: sourcing the perfect materials. Whether it’s the timeless elegance of gold, choosing from the vibrant range of gemstones, or exploring the sentimental value of repurposed materials, each element is chosen with care to align with your narrative.

Crafting with Precision

Our jewelers then bring these designs to life! Combining traditional techniques with modern design, they make sure every detail is not only beautiful but also of the highest quality. This craftsmanship transforms raw materials into jewelry that embodies your unique story. Handmade with care in our Detroit studio, these projects take about 8 weeks to complete.

A Piece of Your Heart

The final result is a jewelry design that is truly one-of-a-kind, reflecting your individuality and the moments that matter most to you. It’s more than just a piece of jewelry; it’s a wearable piece of your heart, crafted with love and precision. Your custom design will come wrapped up in beautifully detailed packaging, complete with a hand tied ribbon.

Looking to start your own custom project?

We are honored to be a part of your journey, creating pieces that celebrate life's most precious moments. The first step is to think about design, explore our in stock jewelry, custom gallery, and Instagram - think about what elements are most meaningful.

Next, you can officially begin the process by filling out a Custom Inquiry form. This will tell us more about your project and help our designers bring your ideas to life. Once you submit your Custom Inquiry form our communication manager will send you an email with next steps including scheduling an appointment with your designer. 

If you are local to Detroit or Cincinnati stop in one of our stores to try on our stock designs, get to know our aesthetic and meet our team.
