Our Process

The allure of a completely custom piece is like no other. Most of the custom jewelry created at Jonathan’s Jewelers are one-of-a-kind pieces created exclusively for our customers, from start to finish, right on the premises. We take their ideas and make them into a reality

With over 50 years of combined experience designing and creating jewelry, owner Jonathan Crary and award winning designer Thomas Buonomo take pride in working with our clients to create original designs.

The process

The custom design process is a fun experience, from the main idea to the final piece of art. We take great care that your budget, lifestyle, and personal preferences are met. You choose the metals and the stones that you prefer we work with you to determine the proportions of the piece. The goal is to create a piece that will align with your lifestyle.

We start off with a design consultation we discuss budget, stones and metals. We then will have some design options prepared for you, some by hand and some via CAD. We speak to you about the details of the design and the changes you would like to see made. When you are satisfied with your design we produce a wax model that resembles the finished piece. You can make any last minute changes you’d like before the final step of casting. We turn the wax model into precious metal, set stones, and finish the piece into a one of a kind piece of art.

We are sensitive to your input and keep you involved to ensure that your piece matches what you had in mind. All of our pieces come with an appraisal including photographs, and our work is guaranteed for one year.

We look forward to working with you to create a custom piece that you will cherish for a lifetime.
