I had Gems of La Costa design a setting for my Tourmaline. They created a perfect piece of jewelry that reflected my wish to showcase the stone. The cost was truly competitive. The diamonds they used were beautiful. They had a vast inventory of gems to augment the Tourmaline. The staff was extremely helpful without being pushy. They sought my approval on every step of the project. I will definitely go back to them to design and set other pieces. I was also impressed with their selection of finished jewelry.

I purchased a stunning blue diamond from Gems of La Costa. Then they were able to help me bring my vision to reality in the creation of a jaw-dropping ring to showcase the stone. Ewa was amazing taking me through each design details and rendering the ring in CAD. And Peter's bench work was absolute perfection - along with his design input. Chad and Steve were nice enough to allow me to drag them into the process, as well. I've hardly taken my new ring off since its dramatic unveiling. And I've already purchased another diamond from them and finalized details for another customer piece - a pendant this time. They have a life-long fan and customer!

Gems of La Costa worked with me closely to custom design a gorgeous and very special pendant for me and my 2 sisters. They used sapphires from 2 pins that were from our mother. We think of each other across the miles and our mother every time we touch or look in the mirror and see our pendants.
Thank you Gems of La Costa. I have gone there for many years for repairs and always felt they did a fantastic job!

What about a custom designed engagement ring?

If you can’t find exactly what you want, our master jeweler can create your own one-of-a-kind engagement ring from scratch for you.

Sometimes, our Oceanside customers have seen a design in a magazine and would like to get a similar – customized version or they want to use diamonds from a heirloom jewelry. If you came up with your own idea or you would like to recreate a lost family piece, we can take your ideas and turn them into reality.

Custom design jewelry usually starts with a good understanding of what you are looking for. Starting with a scan of your existing diamonds or gemstones, you want to integrate is the first step that allows us to create a mockup you. Sketches of designs or Photoshop mock-ups are a good start for us to find out what you are looking for and narrow down details and size considerations.

 

Oceanside Computer Aided Jewelry Design

In most recent years CAD, computer aided design is used to create more intricate designs then what was possible with the traditional wax carving or fabricating custom jewelry from scratch. Furthermore, CAD Jewelry Design can give you a preview of all sides of the piece and adjustments can be made to the piece before it’s has been cast and finished.
