I’m in MN and I used Joseph Schubach in AZ. LOVE my ring. They made it just how I asked for. Does Rosado’s Box do custom? I kinda thought they had a brick and mortar in Chicago? People on here also love David Klass and he’s in Cali, I think.

I am getting my ring custom made by Designs By Kamni (NYC). I am out of Boston (so about 4 hour drive). It is currently in the works, but so far everything has been smooth sailing.

Lauren B! GAH.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  And honestly, they’re really not that expensive compared to other places.  They produce quality rings and they can make you anything you want in your budget.  They worked with us within our price range, granted our budget was $15,000+, we had choices.  They’re definitely amazing though.  Good luck!

I’m working with The Gemstone Project in Washington state, I’m in the Boston area. She’s a wonderful designer and patient. She works on paper via email until you a r both happy for the initial CAD to be made. Can’t recommend her enough. I’m anxiously awaiting the cast of a custom ring. She made another Bees stunner..

RedHeadKel :  is correct, Rosados Box has a brick & mortar in Chicago. It’s called Love & Promises and I believe they do custom work.  At least I thought they did–I don’t see anything about it on their website. https://www.loveandpromisejewelers.com/ 

Other than that, David Klass, Joseph Jewelry, and Greenlake Jewelry are three well-respected custom jewelers that work long distance. The latter two are fairly pricey, but less than Lauren B, I believe.

If you want some inspiration or just general ring porn, I highly recommend checking out Joseph Jewelry’s website. (https://www.josephjewelry.com/custom-engagement-rings) They post a ton of custom stuff and their work is to die for. And they have high quality 360 videos of actual rings, not just CADs!

I recommend Ken and Dana designs based in NYC. Fiance and I worked with them and had a wonderful experience. We are local so went in person, but they do remote work and have wonderful reviews from people all over.

Try checking local jewelers. That’s how I had my bridal set made. I just told them what I wanted, gave them my designs and I had it 4 weeks later.

Victor Canera in LA made my rings; I’m on the East Coast. The process was smooth and easy. I don’t know how his prices compare to Lauren B though.

I second (third? fourth?) David Klass. I have two rings he created, and I would love to work with him again one of these days. Communication sometimes lags, but I found the process to be fairly smooth both times. And I love both of the designs he created for me.

I also love Greenlake Jewelry. I browse their website frequently, and am always floored by how exquisite and creative their work is. I wanted to go with them for my first custom project, but they were more than twice the price I got from David Klass.

I had awesome experience working via email with Wexford Jewelers in Cadillac MI. They have a storefront there that I went to for pickup, as I am about 90 miles away.
