Custom Engagement Rings
Please note: our custom orders are created from scratch just for you and take 6 - 8 weeks to complete after stone sourcing.
We would love to help you create your dream ring! Our skilled design team will help you blend Valerie’s simple, minimalist aesthetic with your ideas and design a truly unique and well-crafted piece meant to be worn forever and passed down as an heirloom. We can also help with customizing an existing Valerie Madison design to make changes to the gemstone type, dimensions of the design, gold color, etc. Please note that at this time we are unable to take on custom wedding band, necklace, bracelet, or earring projects.
Our custom work starts at $2,500 and generally ranges in the $3,000 - $5,000 range. If this is not within your budget we have an amazing array of ready to ship rings and moissanite rings that may be a better fit. If you’re interested in taking matters into your own hands, we also offer a Design Your Own Ring feature. Currently we offer limited heirloom reworks with client-provided diamonds, which you can read about here.
To get started please get acquainted with the following steps and schedule a consultation or send us a message below. Before you schedule your appointment we recommend reading our preparation guide to get the most out of your time with us. We’re excited to work with you!
You can join us virtually or in our Madrona, Seattle studio. During your 30 minute appointment we’ll help with any questions, show you ring settings that match your lifestyle and aesthetic, and show you in-stock diamonds and gemstones that meet your preferences. If we don’t have the perfect stone for you we can also discuss custom sourcing. You'll leave the consultation with a firm design direction based on your requests and information on next steps via email.
*We ask for a $250 non-refundable custom sourcing deposit to begin custom sourcing requests from our trusted network of gemstone and diamond dealers. This deposit will be applied as a credit toward your custom order.
2. Stone Selection & Deposit
Our team will present you with stone options and you will choose one for your custom ring! We will draft your Deposit Invoice and send you our Custom Order Contract.
*At this point that we will request 50% nonrefundable deposit* via an online invoice (which can be paid for with a debit/credit card or Paypal) to start producing your custom ring. This deposit will take into account any previous sourcing deposits you have paid.
3. CAD Review & Approval
We will share with you digital mock-ups (called CAD renderings) of your ring to review and approve via email within about 7-10 business days. Over the next few weeks we will be casting, polishing, and setting stones by our master stonesetter here in Seattle. We will send you an update when the ring is completely finished.
4. Final payment & shipment
The last and most exciting step! After your final payment we will have your ring shipped or ready for in-store pickup.
We will provide you with a lovely ring box, ring material documentation, information on our warranty, care and cleaning. We are happy to offer complimentary cleanings and check-ups on your ring for a lifetime.
