Where is Band Jewelry made?
Band Jewelry is designed on the West Coast and made in the United States.
Can I purchase a piece of Band Jewelry if I’m not on the West Coast?
Yes, we can easily work with any client via email. Reach out to us at: Info@BandJewelry.com.
Can I gift the design process to someone I love?
Absolutely. We have a knack for assessing a recipient’s taste. That said we’ve had great success providing our first round of sketches as a placeholder. Let your loved one take over where you left off.
What materials do you use?
Band Jewelry specializes in fine jewelry. We typically work with recycled 14kt, 18kt, and 22kt gold or platinum. Other metals may be available upon request.
We work with reputable stone dealers to ensure that our stones are traceable and fairly mined and cut. Repurposed stones whether we seek them out or they are already in the family are welcome (as long as they pass inspection)!
How many rounds of designs are normal?
We work hard to get to your essence from the beginning. Typically we include two rounds of design. If further rounds are desired, they will be billed at an hourly rate of $100/hr.
How does custom payment work?
The pieces you purchase from Band Jewelry are tailored specifically to you and the price points reflect their individuality and craft. To begin the design process, we require a $500 non-refundable deposit. Your deposit includes your consultation, two rounds of designs, and placement on our studio's schedule. Your deposit will be applied to the final price of your piece. Band Jewelry works with carefully selected fine materials and master workshops; because of this, custom pricing begins at $1000.
Why is it still expensive to make a piece if I’m supplying heirloom jewelry materials?
The customization cost covers the design, development, and production of your piece. Often additional materials will also be required. Many hours will be spent: consulting, researching, designing, carving, modeling, casting, finishing, setting, and engraving. We value both our crafts-people’s training and efforts as well as our own.
