If you’ve been dreaming of your one and only piece of jewelry because you haven’t been able to find it anywhere – you’ve come to the right place.
You are one of a kind, and there is no one else quite like you. Your jewelry should also reflect your unique self and story, too. We know that everyone has had their own special journey throughout this life, and part of our passion is to help tell those stories through beautiful jewelry for our customers. Whether you choose to have your jewelry outwardly express your story or instead be a personal reminder of what matters most to you, custom design jewelry is the perfect way to add that sparkle to your story.
Whether you know just what you want or haven't got a clue, our designers will work with you to explore options and develop ideas until the exact concept of your one and only jewelry piece comes to life.
The Custom Design Journey with your Trusted J.F. Kruse Artisan Jeweler
Once you get started with our custom design team, we'll bring your imagination to life through hand-drawn sketches and 3D technology. You'll be able to provide input and feedback throughout this process as our staff guide you in creating a piece that is entirely your own.
After you approve the design, next we’ll build a 3D wax model of your jewelry. You can touch, feel and even try on this modeled version of the final jewelry piece. Not only does this step give us an idea of what it will take to craft a quality custom design, but it also gives you a chance to see and hold the jewelry that was previously just in your head and on paper.
Finally, our goldsmiths will cast and pour the metals into the mold. Then they will assemble each stone, gem and piece into place to ensure preciseness. This is how your jewelry will finally come to life. After a final polish, you will be able to take your jewelry home!
The whole process can be completed in three to six weeks. However, we don’t believe in taking shortcuts, so we strongly recommended that you start the process early if you’d like a custom piece for a specific occasion.
Since 2006, we have been making custom jewelry design dreams come true. Today, we offer our customers all the modern technology with 3D computer modeling and 3D printers, as well as more traditional methods such as sketching and carvings – and we do this all in-house. We’re the only jeweler in Central Minnesota that can design and make your jewelry this way, from start to finish. Further, our custom design services are completely free, and our professional staff is non-commissioned. So, from the moment you walk through our doors until you’re walking back out with your custom jewelry in your hand, you can rest easy knowing that our staff won’t be trying to up-sell anything to you because we don’t have a hidden agenda. Instead, we are completely focused on you, your needs and help tell your story.
Let our team meticulously craft an heirloom-quality piece that reflects your unique personality and style. We’re honored to be a part of your story.
