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 wanted to greatly thank you for assisting me with the purchase of the earrings. I have given them to my wife this week on our 1 year wedding anniversary and she loved them. Based on this purchase and my experience I will certainly be referring businesses your way.
Another good day… crawling out of debt. It pays to shop around even when selling gold! Thanks a bunch to Clinton Beck!
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 …
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…
Thank you for meeting with me on Friday and for your professional approach and kind manner. It was a pleasure doing business with you!
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…
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!
Any jewellery hoarders out there? I was both impressed and amazed by Clinton’s professionalism and honesty when he appraised my gold. I highly recommend Beck Diamonds if you have old gold that is collecting dust or if you are just in need of cash. The value of gold is great, and I was pleasantly …
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…
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…
