Beck Custom Jewellery Design
Custom Jewelry Design, By Nicholas Beck
At Beck Jewelers, we have been creating custom jewelry for 20 years. The company founder Clinton Beck used a pencil and paper to sketch a design and then a goldsmith would carve a wax by hand. As technology has evolved, the tools we utilize to make our custom jewelry has progressed accordingly. We now primarily use the latest design technology to create our one of a kind pieces. However, when the occasion calls for it, we do still hand fabricate jewelry from hand.
At Beck’s we have invested in the latest technology to make designing jewelry fun, perfect and cost effective.
Nicholas Beck, an artist and jewelry designer has studied jewelry design in Toronto, Canada. He has been immersed in the jewelry business his entire life. He has also seen some of the most beautiful antique jewelry which has come into the family antique store. His designs are timeless and beautiful.
We take specific steps following a proven process to create the perfect piece of jewelry designed just for you. The important thing to remember when working with us to make your custom piece of jewelry is that you are every bit as important to the design process as we are; you have just as much to do with the creation of your jewelry as we do.
The first step is to sit down with Nicholas and draw a basic design. Nicholas will sit down and build the piece of jewelry with you. This is fun and very creative.
Once the ring is designed, it is printed using a 3D printer. It is perfect every time. The days of a goldsmith carving by hand are gone. You receive a perfect finished product at a fraction of the price of what a custom piece would have cost.
A custom ring starts at roughly $1500.00 with little diamonds on the sides.
Seeing the CAD image will give you a really good feel for what the final product will look like. At this point in the design process, we encourage our clients to be brutally honest with respect to aspects of the ring they like and those that they dislike. We have the ability to change virtually anything about the ring at anytime, and we take no offense if some aspect of the ring is not liked. After all, this is not for us: this is for you.
The next phase is to carve a wax based on the CAD image. Having a physical model of the custom piece of jewelry is key to creating the most beautiful, as well as the most comfortable, custom piece of jewelry.
After the wax model is approved, following any needed modifications, we perform a lost wax casting. Casting jewelry correctly is an exact science that Beck Jewelers mastered decades ago, and still performs today with the utmost precision.
Upon completion of the casting process, the jewelry is polished and the stones are set by a master diamond setter. Once the item is polished and stones are set, the newly created custom jewelry has the finishing touches applied.
What emerges as a result is a truly one of a kind, wearable piece of art.
Clinton, I am so happy to have met you. You are a true professional. I felt like I was on the antiques road show when you were explaining everything about my jewellery. Thanks for your help. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
I had a great experience with Beck Diamonds. While purchasing bullion silver Clinton gave me exceptional service at a cost lower than my previous suppliers. I am excited for our future dealings and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to invest in precious metals.
I highly recommend doing business with Beck Gold & Diamond Brokers. As I had a rather large quantity of scrap gold jewellery, I did my research. Not interested in the “mail in” approach, I wanted to deal face to face and maximize the price per gram of my gold. After visiting several pawn shops that …
Your professionalism made the process worth telling all my friends and family about your business. I look forward to our many dealings in the future, warmest regards,
Thank you very much for driving all the way out to my house at Isle Lake on a long weekend. Especially in the Terrible Winter weather we were having, it really meant a lot to me!
I’m so happy to have met you yesterday when I came to sell my gold jewellery. I was so confused and had a hard time parting with it and shared with you my reasons for selling. You were so kind, patient, polite. Your advice and good thoughts gave me great confidence that i’m selling it to the right p…
I can’t tell you how thankful I am that you talked me out of selling my great grandmother’s gold coin necklace. It was something that I would never wear but it was very sentimental in value. Your idea of having it mounted in a shadow box frame with a picture of her brought tears to my eyes. My famil…
I was at your place on Monday (I had the silverwear set and loved all your furry friends) I just want to thank you for everything and the advice on where to sell my silverwear set. I have been telling all my girlfriends and we are all very excited to have a party. Thanks again, talk soon.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been dragging around that old jewellery box filled with broken chains, one earring sets, and jewellery that just isn’t to your taste any longer. I saw the loud ads on T.V., but refused to put my valuables into an envelope and send them to who knows where for a vagu…
Thanks Beck Diamonds, Friendly and honest service. Upfront and helpful. Thanks for the tour as well. Lots of neat stuff, like a mini museum.
