We are very excited about our new online Chimera Showcase - you can design jewelry, insert various size, color, and shape gemstones and diamonds into YOUR choice of metals. Not only will you get instant visualization of your creation, but you will also have an estimated price that will change when you make changes in the piece, (e.g. from 10kt to 14kt gold or by substituting one gem for another).
This is some of the most fun you can have with jewelry online - we guarantee it.
Deb came in with a couple of diamonds and the desire to make a ring with them that would also incorporate her birthstone - Emerald. We went to the Chimera Showcase and looked around. She loved the contemporary look of the half bezel settings in this ring. We tried several shapes for the center lab-created emerald (Princess cut above), and she settled on a round one that would be slightly larger than her two diamonds - the diamonds are 5mm and the emerald is 6mm.
Once Deb settled on a design, we secured a price and placed the order. Her custom-designed ring was delivered about 10 days later for her to inspect before we set the gems. One great aspect - the jewelry from our Showcase is ALL made in the US - by our friends at Stuller in Louisiana.
To give you an idea of how accurate the computer images are, here is a picture of the finished ring with the 6mm center and Deb's diamonds. We LOVE technology!
One more thing about our Showcase - Don't worry, we are not trying to lure you into designing a $10,000 piece and then buying it! You CANNOT purchase your design directly from the website.
What you can do is save the final design(s) you like and then Cliff will be notified and contact you with an accurate price quote - how cool is that?
Please follow this link to our Online Chimera Showcase and have some fun designing rings, pendants, or earrings with the easy-to-use software. If you end up with a design you really love, save it and Cliff will contact you with a quote. Easy peasy!
