8 Reasons For Custom Jewelry

January 26th, 2018 by James L. Sweaney, CGA, FGA. GG

People have many reasons for wanting custom jewelry.  Sometimes, they want something new and exciting, sometimes they need a problem fixed, sometimes it’s to replace or recreate a special piece. The artisans of Mardon solve all sorts of design requests and challenges– in addition to our in-house design services, we work with the best crafts people in the business for expert hand engraving, stone repair, and enameling.

Custom Hand Engraved Wedding Bands

Owning unique one-of-a-kind jewelry sets us apart. This couple wanted easy to wear wedding bands with a vintage style. Designer Jenny Sweaney created this original floral design reminiscent of the Art Deco style. The open work is perfect for hand engraving. These beautiful wedding bands will make this couple’s ceremony memorable and will draw admiration for their marriage in the years that follow.

Perfectly matched GIA graded Diamonds

This gentleman wanted a simple elegant ring with a matched pair of high quality diamonds to celebrate his 40th anniversary. We found the perfect diamonds and followed his suggestions for the design.

Old Mine Cut Diamond in a Modern Style

After many years of marriage, this lady wanted a new wedding ring. She  had a good idea what the design should be- We adapted her idea to her gems. Along the way, we recut her chipped Old Mine cut family diamond. We like the combination of an antique diamond with this modern look– it really works.

Men’s Lost Wedding Band Recreated in Platinum and Rose Gold

This man lost his unusual wedding band– we recreated it in platinum and rose gold with princess cut diamonds.

Sapphire and Diamond Ring, redesigned

This client kept losing sapphires from her ring. It was a design flaw that wasn’t repairable. We re-engineered the design with more secure settings for her stones while keeping a similar look. Now her new ring is problem free.

Gorgeous Natural Jadeite in 14K Gold

This lady received a wonderful natural Jadeite from friends on one of her many trips to China. Our custom setting shows off her gorgeous gemstone and suits her lifestyle to a T- She was ecstatic with the result!

Imperial Topaz and Baguette Tsavorites in Rose Gold

This shopper bought a fine Imperial Topaz in Brazil and wanted an unique setting. We matched it up with a perfect pair of rare Tsavorite baguettes. The step cutting, the colors of the gems and the rose gold work together in beautiful harmony.

Pallasite Peridot from the Stars!

This pair of custom earrings features gems that are literally out of this world! This couple waited for two years for a specialty lapidary firm to locate and cut this matching pair of Pallasite gems. Pallasite is an unique variety of peridot– the Pallasite crystals form within meteorites and fall from the heavens! CAD whiz Jenny Sweaney worked for several weeks developing the perfect design to show off these ultra rare gems and to express the couples’ feelings for each other.

Custom made jewelry is a Mardon specialty. It’s one of the special parts of our skill base that keeps us looking forward to our work each day.

Our state of the art CAD jewelry design software allows our clients to participate in the design process and to see precisely what their jewelry will look like before it’s made. We produce castable models with a 3-d printer, a computer controlled milling machine, as well as by hand carving. You can see from these examples how versatile custom jewelry can be.

If you have need for custom jewelry or just want to ask questions, stop by our shop anytime during business hours, Tuesday thru Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm. We’ll be happy to show you how it works. You can call 951 682-2325 or email customerservice@mardonjewelers.com
