Since our inception, we have dreamed of a day where we could offer custom made rings to our clients. With this dream in mind, we are honored to welcome Kelsey Merkeley to our team!
Kelsey is an internationally-recognized and award-winning designer and goldsmith, who has studied in Mumbai, Bangkok, London, Los Angeles, Florence, New Zealand, Kenya, and Canada, just to name a few.
Inspired by nature and the vibrant world around her, Kelsey's incredible talent is matched only by her kindness and compassion. The intimate relationship that Kelsey builds with her clients through her work is one of the many reasons she loves what she does.
You may have been dreaming of a special ring for many moons or, perhaps, you have an upcoming celebration in need of commemoration. Between the combined talents of one of our founders, Donna Scheven, and talented goldsmith, Kelsey, we can help bring your creation to life.
As with any custom piece of jewelry, it starts with your idea! Please fill out the online questionnaire found here, which will give us a sense of what you're looking to create.
Once we have received your completed questionnaire, we will reach out via email to set up an initial consultation. The consultation will be virtual, either by phone or video.
Following the consultation, we will begin sketching out the initial design for your ring. We will refine the design through our conversations and (up to) three design iterations.
Once the design is approved, we can begin creating!
The timeline to create a bespoke ring is as unique as the piece of jewelry itself.
Once a design sketch has been approved, the creation of your one of a kind ring will typically take 4-8 weeks. Your finished ring will then be shipped to you and a tracking number will be provided via email.
Please note that the 4-8 week estimate is for the production of your ring and does not include the initial consultation, sketching of design or shipping time.
If you are having a ring created for a special occasion, please be sure to mention this in the online questionnaire and during our initial consultation.
Our entry price point for bespoke rings is $1,500.00 CAD + tax.
The initial consultation is complimentary.
A 25% payment is required prior to the sketching phase, and another 25% once a design has been chosen and before work begins.
The balance is due once the piece has been finished, prior to shipment.
We offer complimentary expedited shipping for all bespoke rings within Canada.
If you have a special piece of jewelry that you'd like redesigned into something that feels more modern and you, we'd love to explore that with you!
Please note that not all heirloom jewelry can be repurposed and it is dependent on the state the piece is in. Clients should consider this option purely for its sentimental value and not as a cost cutting option.
