CJ Charles Jewelers has offered jewelry custom orders since establishing our La Jolla location in 1986. Although many people are familiar with the incredible jewelry and timepieces available, the ability to make jewelry custom orders is less well-known. Clients wishing for a special unique item can commission anything from our excellent designers. The master jewelers at CJ Charles take the time to make your dreams come to life with uncompromising quality and attention to detail.
Our latest effort was re-setting a 6 carat radiant cut diamond. The client approved a beautiful platinum setting with full cut micropavé diamonds set in a halo around the center diamond and down the sides. Fiery fancy yellow radiant cut diamonds were to be set in 18k yellow gold on either side of the center, with full cut fancy yellow diamonds accenting the color.
Choosing side diamonds is a process requiring time and effort. A staff Graduate Gemologist
carefully sorts through a large pile of diamonds, rejecting the majority, before assembling a perfectly matched array. Once the diamonds are chosen, the next step of the jewelry custom order begins.
The CJ Charles master jeweler hand makes a setting for the diamonds. Unlike most jewelry which uses calibrated sizes where prongs are bent to fit a diamond, all of our jewelry custom orders are made to fit the exact diamond which will end up gracing you or your loved one. This precision is much more time intensive but allows for a higher level of engineering, those ugly heavy prongs are necessary to counter the forces trying to move back into the position they were cast. A quality jewelry custom order will have delicate prongs that are less likely to move out of position in the future, keeping your diamond safe.
We are so pleased with the outcome of this jewelry custom order. If you would like us to help you realize one of your dreams, please contact us today.
