We Make Your Vison Come True
Here at Hendrickson’s, our staff can help with making your dream ring. We create each piece unique to the individual. Jewelry is an extension of the wearer, and we want to make sure it shows.
We do use other technology also. Over the years, CAD (Computer-aided design) and 3-D Printing has upgraded and sped up the process. The CAD process is the only part we do not do onsite. We use the President-CEO of The Jewelry CAD Institute for our CAD work. We are involved with every step to make sure that the computer-generated pictures are going to be the reality that you have pictured in your mind.
When you hire us to create a custom design, you can expect it to be done in 4-6 weeks (on average).
We start out with a meeting with you to talk about what you want to design. If you have examples of what you like, we are able to take different components of other rings and combine them for you.
Then once we get an idea of your style, we will look at the stones we will be using. We deal in natural diamonds, lab diamonds, and other gemstones. You can choose the one you love.
Once we have the basic design and stones picked, we will have a CAD image made up of computerized images of what your piece will look like. The image is merely that, an image. In the picture, the stones shown will not be the stones you picked; they are just place holders so you can see the design. Another part is the prongs will look very high. This is so that we can fold and shape the prongs over the stone once it has been cast. We can edit and tweak the design before it is printed if it is not what you were thinking.
We understand the emotional aspect of personalized jewelry. If you have a piece you don’t wear, a mother’s ring, or jewelry that has been passed down and isn’t your style, we can use the metal and stones to make something new and even more sentimental. We understand the love and history of a particular piece of jewelry may be why you have held onto something. We can take the jewelry that you don’t wear and use it in the custom jewelry. Bring in those pieces so we can sit down and design your perfect ring. This will help lower the cost plus you can now enjoy it.
Custom designing is an art unto itself. Our jewelers are extremely talented and fun to work with. They will help you with the jewelry project you have been dreaming about.
In House Custom Designs
Talent With Experience
Here at Hendrickson’s we have 4 in-house Goldsmiths that have done miracles with jewelry. This allows us to do our own repairs and not have to send things out. It also allows us to size rings and other jewelry right when you buy it. You can also view the goldsmiths work on projects through the windows. Even with in house repairs we are about 2 weeks out on repairs once they are dropped off.
Yes, we have many vendors that we use. You can look at our top vendors on our vendor page. We are also part of a Group of Jewelers that are spread across USA that help each other find designs and products.
We promise most jewelry repairs to be finished in 2 weeks at Hendrickson’s. This is due to the number of repairs we receive each day. Also, we need to do a deep clean on all the jewelry so we do not stain or damage your jewelry when repairing. We check the repairs to make sure that everything is done right, and no issues are found with them. You can get your repair moved to the front of the line with a *Rush fee. But even with a Rush fee you would be looking at a minimum of *48 hours for repairs to be done.
*Rush fee charge and time frame depends on the repair that is needed.
We mainly deal with Gold (Yellow, White, or Rose) and Platinum. We have two lasers that allow us to do repairs to platinum jewelry that the standard torch jeweler can’t do. Sterling silver is another metal we are able to work on but we cannot always repair silver pieces due to the strength vs. brittleness of it.
Yes, any Member of our team is educated enough to both inspect and clean your jewelry. We recommend you bring your jewelry in at least twice a year to be cleaned and looked at. The best months to remember to clean them are April and October… the scary months (Taxes and Halloween). With that in mind we never charge for any cleaning and would love to clean any jewelry, any time you bring it in. We will also inspect the jewelry as we clean it.
When it comes to your older jewelry you no longer wear, or just keep in a jewelry box, we have a few options to help. We can examine it to see if it is something that we can sell for you in our estate jewelry area. You can also reuse your gold and stone to make a new custom piece of jewelry that you would enjoy wearing. This adds a sentimental aspect to your new jewelry by having the same stones or gold from an older piece in your new design. The last option is we can buy the gold (even broken jewelry), or trade the gold for a new piece of jewelry.
