How to start a custom design

The process easily begins with an inquiry to Diamonds On The Key!  By sending an email to Christina, and providing any initial details, idea photos or special requests, this helps set expectations for the custom piece. 

After receipt of images and details, a consultation via email, phone or Zoom video call, will give the client and Diamonds On The Key owner, Christina Termine, the opportunity to thoroughly review the scope of the project, such as design goals, inspirations, budget, and timeline. This is also the point where the client can ask questions, express concerns, and discuss any special requests.

Prior to creation of the custom piece, the client will receive and approve a quotation, which outlines the specifics of the design project, including all design details, estimated costs, and completion timeline. If applicable, the client will receive a CADD (Computer-aided design) as well for approval.

Once approved by the client, Diamonds On The Key will require a 50% deposit to begin production. Once a deposit is received, production of CADD renderings will commence, if necessary, and a final design of the custom piece is confirmed.

Finally, The client receives their custom designed piece of jewelry upon pick up in person at the showroom, or by return shipping and insurance, with final balance due upon receipt.

Diamonds On The Key was honored to create this “one-of-a-kind” Diamond Half Band as a “Push Present”, to celebrate this first time Mom! The new Dad requested a special personalization and that a singular Lime Green August Birthstone (Peridot) be added into the diamond band, as a subtle nod to their baby’s birth month. The timeless band ring is durable enough to wear every day.
