Being a longtime jewelry designer in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana region is an honor for the team at Brad’s Designs & Jewelry. We have had the opportunity to be a special part of so many stories of love and celebration. For more than 30 years, we have had a hand in putting together unique, one-of-a-kind rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings to help mark the momentous moments in our clients’ lives. From anniversary and milestone occasions to engagement and birthdays, we are ready to be a part of your special event and help you put together a piece of jewelry that will shine and sparkle for years to come.
When you think of a custom ring, the first thing that comes to mind is surely an engagement and wedding. But a customized ring can be a wonderful way to show someone that you love them just because of when it is their birthday, as a graduation gift or to mark a milestone anniversary. While it can be intimidating to think about creating a piece of jewelry, our experts will guide you throughout the whole process to ensure that you have a ring that will be that gift that you have dreamed of. We launch your piece with a conversation to uncover all of the details from why you are celebrating to what you have in mind for style and material. This consultation is at the root of what inspires us and allows us to bring to life your vision.
Next, we sketch out the initial design and here, you can have a lot of input by offering your own sketches, pictures of examples and any jewelry that you are looking at as your own inspiration. We will not move on to the wax carving until you are completely satisfied with the design and have given it your stamp of approval. Next, casting in the material of your choice is completed. This could be silver, gold, platinum or a mix of these three. We fabricate and set your stones by hand in order to truly create your tailored jewelry.
After you have gifted your jewelry, make sure that it stays at its best by maintaining it and keeping it clean and sparkly. Our team can assist with this as well as any repairs that may pop up to keep it at heirloom quality. Unfortunately, daily wear can take a toll on your jewelry pieces. We can help replace broken clasps, fix your watch, resize any rings that do not fit anymore, replace lost stones or retip your prongs that hold in stones. We also can clean and polish up your jewelry.
