Sometimes, a piece of jewelry seems the only way to mark an occasion properly. We all know that engagements and anniversaries are opportune times, but many others also exist in between those events. Perhaps you’re celebrating an exceptional accomplishment or want to include a sentimental detail within the piece. Trabert Goldsmiths is here to provide the best quality custom jewelry San Francisco has to offer.

In moments like this, finding the perfect ring, bracelet, earrings, or necklace isn’t always a simple task. Often you go into a store with a specific idea in mind and can’t find something that matches your vision. It’s in this situation that creating custom jewelry is the best route to take.

For custom jewelry, San Francisco residents can find excellent craftsmanship at Trabert Goldsmiths. Their creation process brings unique custom jewelry that bay area customers have loved for decades with the highest quality possible.

Our Process

When it comes to custom jewelry, we take steps to achieve the perfect piece seriously. Working hand in hand with our clients, we get all the details of your vision and include you in every step to ensure it turns out exactly the way you want.

The meeting will begin with a few initial questions to gain insight into the piece and circumstances. Some of the questions that we will ask during the first portion of our conversation include the following:

  • What is the occasion you are honoring or the purpose for seeking out the consultation?
  • Please give us some information about the person receiving the jewelry.
  • Why is custom jewelry the best route to achieving the jewelry of choice?

These questions are asked informally and intend to get background information on the recipient and the motivation behind this unique gift. Done in a conversational tone, we aim to establish a relationship with you in order to work together in the best way possible. 

With this information, we can also gather the depth you are looking for in customization. One can take various routes, of which only one is a fully customized piece of jewelry. 

  • Different Structure: Sometimes, individuals look at a piece of jewelry, and there are one or two things they would like to be different. This change is considered simple customization.
  • Specific Stone: For custom jewelry, bay area residents often prefer a particular stone or gem. These items aren’t always easy to find, so they seek assistance to make the dream a reality.
  • Heirloom Reconstruction: It’s common to see individuals bring in a piece of jewelry that has been in their family for years but needs a facelift. Expert jewelers and artisans can do this with all the tender care necessary to retain the piece’s meaning.
  • Custom Jewelry: While we regularly see the above options at Trabert Goldsmiths, we also have many who come with their own design and vision that is unlike anything else. We work to create the exact look they desire.

As you can see from the different options above, not all custom items start entirely from scratch. Many just need alterations or the inclusion of a specific design element. Knowing this information ahead of time helps to paint a clearer picture of the piece.


Detailed Design Elements

The second half of our consultation will be diving in to get intricate details about the design that you are aiming for in your vision. Knowing that achieving the exact look you are after is critical, we will draw up plans and incorporate the elements that are most important to you.

As we have learned through our experience in custom jewelry, San Francisco turns out products that are the best of the best. We have learned from the highly creative individuals residing throughout the bay area and the talent the community has when it comes to jewelry design.

In what is perhaps the lengthiest part of the process for custom jewelry, bay area artisans will go to work to further refine design sketches for your review. These images will undergo extensive edits until we have a plan that meets all your expectations and includes all the pertinent details and elements. 

Following that, we will begin the construction phase. Initially, we will develop a mold or 3D image that resembles the jewelry to show the overall base. Our jewelers will then intricately carve each piece and etch out all details to your specifications. We can provide updates throughout the process so you can see the progress that has taken place over time.

Once the construction is complete, we will prepare the jewelry for its final presentation. We use a top polish to refine the jewel’s exterior to get the best shine. We want the wow factor just as much as you do, and after putting our hearts and souls into the piece, we want you to have nothing but happiness and shocked surprise as you open the box to see the final product.
