Custom Designs

Creating custom Jewelry is our passion.Caffray Jewellers is recognized as one of the premier custom jewelry designers in our area. The process begins with a free consultation where you describe (your jewelry vision) what you would like us to make. Bring all your gems and jewelry that you would like to incorporate it into your design. We will then take an idea and bring it from your imagination to reality.

CJ will make you a drawing or two. From the drawing a wax model is carved. This wax model (lost wax) will be used to cast your jewelry in the metal of your choice. After casting, it will be polished and the stones are set. Any finishing details are added and then a final polishing. Your original design is ready to wear. Please call us with any questions you have about the process. We look forward to working with you. We can also supply everything needed. We have diamonds and an unbelievable collection of rare and beautiful colored gem stones that are one of a kind by themselves. Caffray has the knowledge, experience and desire to make your custom jewelry experience one to remember.
