It's never been easier to create the ring of her dreams, so why not create something one of a kind. Whether it's choosing a unique gemstone, drawing inspiration from a beautiful setting, or looking to put together pieces you love from many different rings, at Inter-Continental Jewelers we love helping you design the most important rings she will ever wear.

Why Custom?

At Inter-Continental Jewelers we do an extensive amount of custom pieces right here in our show room in Houston, Texas. Many people are interested in designing their own ring but aren't sure where to start. Below are some common topics that arise before starting the process of custom designing your fine jewelry.

Isn't custom designing more expensive?

There is a common misconception that custom designing jewelry with a fine jeweler is very expensive and probably out of most shoppers budgets. On the contrary there is typically a small mold fee added to what you would pay for a comparable piece right out of the case. In some cases customizing your piece can actually help you spend your budget on the things that are most important to you. For some people the size of the diamonds are more important than the color, and in other cases using a colored gemstone like a sapphire is the most important part of finding the perfect ring. Customization allows you to decide how you want to spend your jewelry budget.

I don't know how to draw what I want.

No problem! That is what we are here for. Most people don't have the exact piece drawn out when they come to our showroom, but rather pictures of rings they love. Some choose to pull inspiration from many places and others choose to do an exact copy of a piece they already love but can't find any where else.

What if I waited too long and I want to propose soon?

In many cases we complete custom orders between 2-4 weeks. If you need it even faster call us about a rush order. We try to accommodate all of our custom design needs.

I think I know what I want but I'm afraid I won't like the design when it's finished.

We know somethings have to be tried on to be understood or some design ideas can go from daring to dud. For this reason we create a mold from our 3D CAD design and let you try on the wax figure before we move forward in diamonds, gold, platinum, or gemstone setting.
