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.
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 …
As per our conversation earlier today and the successful sale of my gold, I would like to inform you that I did a price comparison regarding the 18k gold ring I sold you today. There is a gold buyer in Sherwood Park who goes by “Aaron Buys Gold” he claims to buy gold for the highest value in the …
Thanks for your help as well, I was very comfortable selling my gold items to you and am very glad that I chose your company instead of someone else that would not have been so personable. I would definitely recommend you to family friends and business associates. Thanks again and I will more than l…
As expected, my second visit and transaction with you has been nothing but stellar. As you know, the first time I shopped around to get the best possible value for my gold/diamonds. Your offer was, by far, the best. The second time, I wasted no time shopping knowing that nobody in this city can prov…
Thanks Beck Diamonds, Friendly and honest service. Upfront and helpful. Thanks for the tour as well. Lots of neat stuff, like a mini museum.
My wife Lisa Nelson introduced me to your services this week with an appointment with one of your sons, I think Nicholas. It was my first experience in trading in old, and unwanted gold and I found the experience so simple, friendly and it went off without a hitch. We went to your residence, or it a…
I had a couple of pieces of unwanted old gold jewellery. Recent news reports talked about the current high value of gold on the market and explained that local jewelers will buy unwanted jewellery. I used the internet to find a few alternative jewelers and found that Beck Diamonds gave an accurate w…
It was a pleasure to meet you today and I want to thank you for your very generous donation to Jessica’s Wish for our major fundraiser to be held on Sept. 4th, 2011. I know it will be a wonderful auction item and will help us to raise more money this year
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!
Mr. Beck came to my house to view a diamond ring that I was trying to sell. I had taken it to a few jewelers who offered me $150.00 and $225.00. A local pawn shop offered me $75.00. I knew that this was a complete rip off. Mr. Beck came to my house and paid me $700.00 for the ring. I was hoping for …
