HOW LONG DOES THE CUSTOM PROCESS USUALLY TAKE?
Custom projects can take anywhere from 4 weeks – 6 months from start to finish. Depending on Chaya’s schedule, design consultation time (2-3 weeks) is sometimes booked out 2+ months in advance. In addition to design, material sourcing (1-2 weeks) , and design complexity (3+ weeks) are all factors in timelines. If you are in a pinch, please get in touch about rush options.
HOW MUCH DOES CUSTOM JEWELRY COST?
Custom designs often begin around $1200*. The final cost of your new piece will depend on materials chosen, complexity of the design, and current metal markets.
*For gold commissions. Due to the large time investment for custom works, sterling silver custom commissions are done on a case by case basis and are quoted accordingly.
CAN I USE MY EXISTING MATERIALS?
Utilizing heirloom materials is done on a case by case basis. Chaya currently only re-works 14kt + 18kt rose or yellow gold – white gold tends to become quite brittle when re-worked. We can also re-purpose existing gemstones. Gemstones are reviewed with you to determine their eligibility. Materials such as white gold, mixed metals and platinum can be applied as credit towards the project.
CAN I COME TO YOUR STUDIO TO SEE DESIGNS & DISCUSS?
