The Hyde Park in-house design team has over 150 years of combined experience creating and designing one of a kind pieces for our clients. Our five step process takes roughly 4-6 weeks after the concept is finalized. From beginning to end, Hyde Park's design team will be your trusted advisors while creating your uniquely special piece.
Step one | Consultation
Schedule an appointment with our in-house design team to begin the custom design process. We offer both in-store and virtual appointments for clients who do not have a Hyde Park location nearby or prefer to work with us remotely.
Step two | Design
Once an appointment has been scheduled it is time to brainstorm design concepts. Our designers are happy to assist with recomendations to begin this process. After completing a design concept, our team will utilize three dimensional design software to construct a photo-realistic rendering. Our design team will make adjustments until the rendering is exactly what our clients dream of!
Step three | Wax Creation
After approving your custom rendering, our team will produce a wax model of your unique piece. Once you approve the wax model, we will move onto casting. Wax creation is the final step of the process where changes can be made to the design.
Step four | Casting
Once the wax creation is complete our expert team of jewelers will supervise casting your piece. Our preferred white metal is 19KT white gold, which will maintain a superior appearance without the need of rhodium plating. Learn more about our preferred precious metals here.
Step Five | Finishing & Diamond Setting
After casting, the Master Craftsman will polish the cast piece to glow. Custom finishes may be added to create a unique appearance. A Master Diamond Setter will then set the diamond and gemstones into your piece. Each Hyde Park Master Diamond Setter is certified by Jewelers of America, with over 70 years combined experience.
