Custom Jewelry Design & Fabrication

Bring in an inspiration photo or just an idea and we’ll guide you the rest of the way. Our large selection of certified stones are conflict-free and responsibly sourced.

Get Inspired

Choose a piece from our in store collections or bring us photos or sketches of what you like. For extra personalization we invite you to co design your dream piece from scratch with your budget and taste.

The Design Process

Create a piece of unique brilliance. Cookie cutter jewelry simply doesn’t compare to a custom piece that serves as a physical representation of your style and taste.

1 | Your Vision

Do you possess a photograph for inspiration or a vision of what you desire? While that’s an excellent starting point, we also offer a thoughtfully selected array of conflict-free and ethically sourced jewels in our store for you to peruse. Additionally, we’ll assist you through a distinctive design journey that encourages your creative instincts to flourish.

2 | Choosing Stones

We firmly believe that there exists a special piece meant exclusively for you. While two stones might seem identical on paper, each possesses a distinct energy that only you can discern. We encourage you to rely on your intuition for the selection. This step is often the most crucial, and we’re committed to tirelessly searching our vast inventory until you discover the one that resonates with you. If you have a previously selected stone or family heirloom, we can consider any option as part of the design process.

3 | Drawings

Your piece begins to take shape once we produce 3D renderings. This phase is crucial for refining the details. A CAD drawing serves as the digital portrayal of your jewelry, encompassing every aspect, from the setting and metal band type to the arrangement and dimensions of each component. We won’t advance until you’re fully satisfied.


4 | Wax Molds

Certain clients find it fulfilling to witness a prototype of their piece. For those desiring a preview of their creation before the final product, we craft wax and metal moldings. These interim models secure the stone(s) you’ve selected, aiding in visualizing the ultimate design and facilitating any final adjustments.

5 | The Big Reveal

The Big Reveal” marks the eagerly anticipated moment when we unveil your custom-crafted jewelry masterpiece. It’s a culmination of meticulous design, expert craftsmanship, and your unique vision coming to fruition. With bated breath, you’ll witness the unveiling of your personalized creation, whether it’s an engagement ring, a pendant, or a pair of earrings. This moment is not just about seeing the physical manifestation of your imagination; it’s about feeling the joy and satisfaction that comes from bringing your dream piece to life. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that this reveal exceeds your expectations, leaving you in awe of the beauty and craftsmanship before you.

Ask our jeweler

There are many questions to consider before investing in a piece as important as an engagement ring. We understand your concerns and we won’t shy away from any questions you may have. In fact, we’re offering our 40+ years experience to your decision-making process. Book an appoinment with our master jeweler for an educational overview.

I am a born and raised Palisadian and went to Mr. Tishby for a very important piece of jewelry. He was so kind and accommodating with my request and was extremely communicative throughout the whole process. The ring came out better than had ever hoped for and I’m so glad I met him! Tishby is the epitome of why you should “shop local”!
