Custom & Bespoke Jewellery
We specialize in creating one-of-a-kind pieces from scratch and repurposing preloved jewellery into new treasures. Below is a guide through the six steps of our bespoke process.
The first step in creating custom jewellery is discussing the design. It’s a good idea to think about your preferences, budget, and possible deadlines before your first consultation. Sharing photos of jewellery designs you love will give us a good sense of what appeals to you, but if you’re not sure where to begin, we’re here to help! Ethics and sustainability are at the heart of every piece of jewellery we make, so if you want to upcycle stones or metals, bring them with you. If you’d rather trade in those materials for credit toward your custom piece, that’s an option too.
If needed, we’ll create a sketch of your concept during the consultation so that you can visualize the profile, stone placement and setting style. At this stage, multiple ideas are welcome and alterations can be made easily. Afterwards, we will be able to provide you with an expected timeline and fabrication method for the creation of your piece.
This is where we explore different metal and stone options. If we aren’t using your own preloved gems, we’ll source the perfect stone(s) for you based on quality, budget and origin. We’ll acquire these stones from our own stock, or from our ethical suppliers. By the end of the selection process, we will be able to provide you with a quote and timeline to approve before moving onto our next phase of design.
Next, we will use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to create a 3-dimensional digital rendering of your piece. You will have a chance to review the rendering and make any final adjustments before we begin production.
From casting and fabrication, to stone setting and metal finishing, our goldsmiths will bring your design to life, ensuring every detail is perfect.
When your custom piece is ready, we will contact you with the option to pick up from our Toronto studio, or to have it safely shipped to you via a tracked and insured service.
Creating one-of-a-kind jewellery is a true creative passion for us at Malleable. We strive to create heirloom quality pieces that you will cherish for years to come, and we're grateful to be along for the journey.
