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 was very impressed by my experience of meeting you, and how professional you were in the sale of my bracelet. I will definitely refer you to other people who could use your service. All the best in the New Year.
I went to Londonderry Mall where a business was set up to buy gold. Their estimate was much lower than yours and I did not have a good feeling about them. I certainly had a great feeling with you; you were very professional and also very honest. I have already passed your name to a number of my frie…
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 …
After phoning around I decided to set an appointment with you and another gold buyer who was located in a mall on the south side of Edmonton in a jewellery store. Both you and he seemed the most professional businesses I could find. I went to the jewellery store first. When I arrived I took out my b…
I am a student in college and I went to see Mr. Beck about 2 months ago to sell a ring with some small diamonds in it. Mr. Beck advised me that the ring was in excellent condition and I may wish to sell it on Kijiji before selling it for scrap gold as I could possibly get more money for it doing it …
So nice to meet you both today, and thank you so much for spending the time with me to look at some of my gemstones and diamonds. And, for your great suggestions on Diamond Grading ABC. I’ve ordered it from the GIA educational store – they’re offering free shipping and a great price right now. …
Thank you for meeting with me on Friday and for your professional approach and kind manner. It was a pleasure doing business with you!
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 …
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…
