Custom Opal Jewelry Design
Although The Hileman Collection consists of hundreds of Australian opal jewelry designs, sometimes our customers have a specific design in mind that is not available without creating a custom handmade piece of jewelry. Mark welcomes the opportunity to work with clients to create a unique custom opal jewelry design that will be treasured for generations. He will listen to your needs, your likes and dislikes, work within your budget and guide you through the process of creating a handmade work of art uniquely for you. Every custom jewelry design exhibits Mark's 43 years of experience in jewelry design, material and gemstone expertise, and unsurpassed craftsmanship. Designing and building a custom piece of opal jewelry requires a great deal of communication and time to ensure that client and artist are in agreement on every detail. Sketches or renderings, custom wax carving and procuring that special stone all take additional time and factor into the cost of your new custom jewelry.
If you are short on time or on a limited budget, semi-custom opal jewelry is a great option. You get involved in the design process of your jewelry by selecting the color of the inlay stones used, as well as the arrangement of the stones, to create a semi-custom piece of jewelry just for you at no additional charge, assuming there are no upgrades. Mark will guide you through the customization process and advise you on which stones are appropriate for your chosen casting style and if any of the stones selected are an upgrade.
Hileman opal jewelry is easily customized to our customer’s inlay color choices or arrangement. Every style ring, pendant, bracelet or earring casting is a blank canvas with almost unlimited choices of colored stones to inlay in the combination of your choice. Most of the faceted gemstones used to accent the opal inlay may be changed to match the color scheme of the inlay. Additional charges are only charged if the accent stone or the inlay material is an upgrade to a more expensive stone.
Whether you choose a custom or semi-custom Hileman opal jewelry design you are sure to receive a well made piece of jewelry tailored to your unique style. Contact us for details on how to get started!
