CUSTOM JEWELRY DESIGN

MAKING YOUR CUSTOM JEWELRY DREAMS COME TRUE EVERY TIME

The creation of jewelry is an art form, and the science of it at Medlars is revolutionary. Our imaging technology lets you see exactly how your piece will look in 3D before we even start working on it. We’re one of the most advanced Texas jewelry designers around.

At our first custom jewelry design consultation, we’ll pay careful attention to your ideas and goals and draw a rough sketch of your piece. Then the magic begins. Using virtual reality software, we’ll convert the sketch to a three-dimensional, full-color image of your piece. This detail is just one of the reasons we’re among the top Texas jewelry designers.


You’ll get exactly the custom jewelry design you envision

Your second consultation is all about your take on our virtual representation of your custom jewelry. You will see your design in color from multiple angles, study the setting style and gold work, and have a chance to make any necessary adjustments. No other process gives you this confidence to move forward with your perfect design.

When you’re satisfied that the design is right, we’ll take a deposit and begin crafting your dream into reality.


Our San Antonio jewelers use time-tested artisan techniques to create your custom jewelry

THE TECHNIQUE IS THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD

The technique is thousands of years old: Once your design is created in wax to your precise specifications (using a 3D printer or milling machine), we’ll cast it using the lost wax method. We’ll pour investment (similar to plaster of Paris) around the wax in a metal cylinder, and when dry, place it in a special oven.




As it heats, the wax will melt away, leaving an exact reproduction of your piece inside the plaster. Then we’ll use a centrifuge to force super-heated, liquid precious metals into the plaster cavity. When everything cools, we’ll break open the plaster, exposing the raw casting. It’s now ready to finish, polish, and set the gems.

UNMATCHED PRECISION IN PLACING YOUR GEMS

Finally, we’ll set your gems, using a machine called the Graver-Max. With the aid of magnification,
this technology allows us to do very complicated settings with unparalleled accuracy.

Everything you need to enjoy and appreciate your custom jewelry

When the process is finished, we’ll present you with a one-of-a-kind piece of heirloom quality jewelry that meets
your exact specifications. We’ll also present you with an appraisal for your insurance company.
