How to Buy Custom Jewelry in 3 Steps

At Brent L. Miller, we believe that custom made jewelry should be as unique as the moments, memories, and people that inspire it... and, the process doesn't have to be complicated, costly, or time consuming. Whether you're designing her dream engagement ring, updating an heirloom piece using your grandmother's gemstones, or want to create something inspired by your favorite fashion designer, we'll create an extraordinary work of art especially for you!
Here, we will guide you through the 3 easy steps that bring your idea to life.

STEP 1 is to Talk About It. Whether you already have an idea or need help finding inspiration, the jewelry experts at Brent L. Miller will get you started. You can call to make an appointment or simply walk-in to discuss your design ideas, options, and budget. If you are seeking inspiration, guiding you through our wide selection of jewelry will help you define your likes and dislikes. If you already have an idea, our experts can explain gemstones, how they are set, and the elements of a design.


*Tip: Explore information about buying an engagement ring, shop ideas on our site or gain inspiration on Pinterest. Take a moment to view our Design Portfolio.

STEP 2: Visualize It. Our designers will create high resolution, photorealistic images and can show you a 360' animation of your idea! We can adjust every detail until you tell us it's absolutely perfect. Below are some examples of the photorealistic images based on ideas that our customers dreamed up! And check out that spectacular animation...



STEP 3: Skilled Jewelers Craft Your Design. At Brent L. Miller, we have 5 in house jewelers with experience totaling over 120 years! Pictured below is Belinda Timmins, one of our master goldsmiths, who has 34 years of experience. Rest assured that your piece will be crafted to the highest quality standards, with every detail given the utmost attention. Once complete, your piece will be inspected and appraised by one of our in house gemologists.

And don't forget (maybe there's a fourth step)...

TREASURE IT. You've just created a truly unique piece of heirloom-to-be jewelry! Handled with precision, knowledge, and care, it is now ready to be worn and enjoyed. We'll send you home with a velvety blue jewelry box for storage and jewelry cleaner for at home care. And guess what? Brent L. Miller will continue to take care of your masterpiece well after it leaves our design studio. We invite you to come visit for complimentary cleaning and inspection to maintain its beauty or if you'd like to keep it looking like new.
