Design With Us

Design an Instant Heirloom

We don't sell antiques. We design and create rings inspired by the styles of every era, including the beauty and glamour of the Roaring Twenties, when Art Deco was at its peak. So what is an Art Deco ring? Scroll down to see some of the defining elements of the style and get inspired to create your own ring.

A classic Art Deco engagement ring design surrounds an heirloom emerald with round diamonds and trillion emeralds. A diamond lattice on the side of the setting and on the inside of the band to bring in the Deco geometry.
A bright blend of colors (blue sapphire, emerald, amethyst and diamond). The form arching from the center amethyst to the emerald accents instantly calls to mind Deco architecture.
The angular step cut emerald center stone and the round emeralds set in kite shaped shoulder details bring in the geometry in this design.
Parallel lines and chevron shapes make the band in this sketch instantly Deco, with a beautiful and literal twist: a swirling octagonal halo.
A minimal, chunky band style engagement ring. Octagonal bezel settings for the emerald cut diamonds to reinforce the shapes.
A bold ring with wide open Maltese Cross arms lined with diamonds and a repeating Deco pattern on the band.
This look is all contemporary styling (delicate, straight band in rose gold), but the shape of the half-halo brings just a touch of Art Deco styling to the design.
A sleek white gold engagement ring with round diamonds in a shield-shaped setting and stylized prong setting for the center diamond.
The bright emerald and dense symmetry of the scrollwork in this ring are all Deco, while the rose gold and moissanite are 21st century choices.
A unique setting frames the round center stone in prongs that give it a cushion shape, echoed in the surrounding cushion-shaped backdrop.
Repeating chevrons on this band give this engagement ring sketch a classic Art Deco feel, with a bright ruby center and densely set diamond halo reinforcing the theme.
Milgrain-edged diamond shapes on the shoulder are set with round diamonds, and contrast with the princess cut center stone.

Symmetry and Geometry

Art Deco design makes heavy use of symmetry and repeating geometric patterns. The style is influenced by the advent of machine manufacturing and a reaction to the hand-crafted, organic aesthetic of Art Nouveau design. In our designs inspired by this style, you'll often see straight lines, repeating geometric shapes. And when you see more ornate, flowing lines, they'll typically be dense, highly symmetrical patterns of filigree.

Custom Cut Gem Arrangements

Setting gems in the often intricate geometry of Art Deco rings requires tightly spaced gems and shapes purpose-cut for that exact arrangement. Not all designs require calibré cut gems, but dense arrangements of accent stones in halos and around center settings are typical of Deco ring design.

Bright Colors and Modern Gem Cuts

While antique cuts like the Old European and Old Mine cut remained popular, Art Deco saw increased use of newer cuts made possible by advances in technology. And, while the popular metals of the day were white gold and platinum, designs embraced bright pops of color in the gems. We draw on this inspiration, often selecting geometric gem cuts and colored gemstones for our Deco-influenced designs.

What Our Customers Say

What else can I say other than FANTASTIC! This was the best experience that I could have had to get the perfect ring for my fiancée! Everyone on the team did an amazing job and Dwayne was by far the best. He was able to answer every question that I had, they were able to work with our schedules when it came to the timeline. The ring came out better than I could have imagined. My fiancée is so in love with her ring that she cannot stop talking about it. It fits her style perfectly. They were able to make a ring that embodies her completely. We will be using them again to make an amazing band to go with this amazing engagement ring.

Thank you CustomMade for everything!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a project take?

Typically, your custom piece will be in your hands 2-3 weeks after we've finalized your design. However, because each project is different, the time it takes to complete your project may vary. Here's a rough breakdown of how long each part of our process takes:

Design: As long as it takes for you to tell us it's perfect

When it comes to creating your design, we'll work at your pace. Some customers only need to exchange a few messages with us - we'll often be ready to make their piece within a few days. Others may prefer to design and iterate with us over many weeks, or even months.

Production: Approximately 2 weeks

Once you've approved a design, we'll manufacture your piece, finishing all the details by hand. When it's ready, we'll send you photographs of your finished piece so you can give us your seal of approval before we ship it to you.

Shipping: 1-3 days (domestic), Approximately 1 week (international)

We offer free shipping within the US via FedEx or USPS, and we ship international packages via DHL Worldwide Express, one of the fastest services available. Depending on location, international shipments can sometimes be delayed by local customs for inspection, which can extend the delivery time.

How much will my ring cost?

In general, our custom rings are the same price as similar rings off-the-shelf ('similar' meaning a comparable selection of metals and gemstones used, which are the biggest factors in price). Our aim is to make high-quality custom designs accessible to everyone.

Each ring we produce starts off as a brand new concept. Because of that, it’s difficult to know how much a piece is going to cost without knowing a bit more about the idea you have in mind.

The easiest way to figure out how much your ring will cost is to start a consultation with us and let our team know what you're looking for - we can provide an estimate with only a few details.

When do I get to see a design? Do I have to pay first?

There's no charge to discuss your design, and price out options with our team. In many cases, our jewelry designers will also create artistic sketches of our design concepts for your piece. We request a deposit prior to producing 3D models and renderings of your design and that deposit goes toward the final cost of producing your piece.

Where do your gems come from? Can I browse your inventory?

Unlike most jewelers, we don't keep a huge inventory of gems. Since every piece we make is custom, we prefer to source each stone individually, to suit the design and the specific needs of each customer.

As with the rest of our design process, our team will guide you through the gem selection process. We start by figuring out what's important to you in a gemstone, whether it's budget, origin, size, color, or simply the overall look. With that in mind, we research and prepare a set of options that we think would work for you. Some come from our curated collection, others from a network of trusted suppliers, and in some cases, we may opt to have an expert lapidary custom cut your gem. You'll make the final decision on the option that best meets your needs, and we'll make sure you have everything you need to make the best choice.

Our primary goal with gemstones is transparency. The center stone is an essential part of the look of your ring and it can be a big financial decision. Trust is built on honest communication, so we work hard to give you all the information you need to make a confident choice.

Do you offer a warranty?

We stand behind our jewelry 100% and we offer a comprehensive set of warranties so that you can purchase with confidence.

Lifetime Manufacturer Warranty

We guarantee our workmanship and take responsibility for any structural defects.

Certificate of Authenticity

All the materials (metals, diamonds, and gemstones) we sell are authentic and properly specified in your proposal agreement.

Accent Stone Loss Warranty

If any small accent gems (<$100 value) break or fall out of their settings in the first year after we create the ring or within a year of us performing maintenance on the ring, we’ll replace them free of charge.
