We meet and talk about the rough ideas for what you would like to see in your piece. Rough sketches are usually done to fully communicate the concept. Here we figure out the basic framework and guidelines for your design.
- Type of jewellery (Ring, necklace, brooch, pendant, other).
- Type of metal.
- Type of gemstone used (if any).
- Finger size.
- Pictures of jewellery you’ve liked and would like to draw inspiration from.
- Any jewellery or gemstones you currently own that you wish to incorporate (if any).
Next we look over images of jewelry and figure out what the inspiration is for your piece.
We discussed what type of gemstone you were dreaming of, now you get to pick out the best one! We spoke to our suppliers and brought in the best selection of gemstones suited to your needs. They are all priced and tagged describing what makes each unique. We discuss the characteristics of each stone and help choose the perfect one for you.
Create 3D concept and any necessary changes through standard communication channels.
After we have outlined a basic style, stone and size, our designer will create a 3D model of your concept and email you renders. Please advise us of any changes or questions as we want to create the perfect design for you. After the design is approved we move on to the next step.
After we get the design perfect, we send the design to a 3d printer. This will give an idea of exactly how the piece will look and we use that exact wax in the casting process. Once you come in and see the wax and approve it, we can move on to casting.
Casting, setting and polishing (2 weeks) We cast the wax into metal, set your stones and bring the custom design to life. This is all handled by our Calgary studio and takes about two weeks.
Appraisal, quality assurance survey.
Once the piece is ready, it is presented to you with a box, insurance appraisal , the invoice, and a quick optional customer survey.

We as a professional jewellery company know and have the experience of what can be achieved. Just because you see this inspiration online doesn’t mean that it will be practical in application. We will Always advise you of your best options as we are about creating jewellery pieces that endure for generations.

Steve was looking for a custom engagement ring featuring a Montana Sapphire and in a vintage style ring in rose gold. “My Fiancé really likes Montana Sapphires and I was having a hard time finding one until I found you online. I’m happy that Jeff had some rough Montana Sapphires on hand and that I could chose the perfect one, decide on the shape, and have Jeff expertly cut it. The ring is perfect! The whole process was great. Anyone considering Premier Gems should just do it”.
Trent was in the market for a custom engagement ring, but didn’t want to go with the traditional diamond. He was seeking a cushion shaped Morganite accented with small diamonds and set into rosegold to accent the peachy hue of the gem. After reading online reviews, Trent knew Premier Gems was the right choice. “Premier Gems should be your number one choice when it comes to anything jewellery. I got everything I wanted in the ring and the whole experience was excellent”

Robert was referred by a current client, who raved about their experience with Premier Gems, and had complete confidence that Premier Gems could exceed his request. Robert was looking for something spectacular, one-of-a-kind, and special to commemorate a 25th Wedding Anniversary. Robert had a vague idea of what he wanted to present. A large diamond in a modern design that would really showcase the diamond and communicate his love of his wife. We introduced Robert to the world of natural fancy coloured diamonds, something rarer and sought after than going the traditional colourless route. The result :a 2.25ct Fancy Intense Yellow Cushion Cut Diamond of very high clarity set into a custom made 19Kwhite gold ring with 18K yellow gold setting to showcase the brilliant hue of the diamond. “It’s beautiful, exactly what I had in mind, and it will bring her to tears”. What Robert would tell others: If you’re tired of the big box stores with pushy sales staff, go to Premier Gems where you will get unbelievable service, knowledge, and value and get exactly what you want.
Tom was looking to recreate a spiral ring in 18K yellow gold with diamond accents, that was lost several years ago, for a 25th Wedding Anniversary.
“I did a Google search for Jewellery Makers and you popped up, I like that you responded quickly and with the right information to my queries and you made the whole communication process, through email, very easy. The anniversary ring is fabulous! Exactly as I imagined. You did a fine job and the whole process was very easy”
