Custom Design Events at Day's Jewelers

Maybe you’ve been looking for the perfect engagement or wedding ring, and you’ve found a few designs, but you just can’t decide between them.  Maybe you’ve inherited a special piece of jewelry that needs a few tweaks to bring a more modern look, or it’s not your style but you want to wear it as a way to remember and celebrate the loved one it once belonged to. Maybe you just want to redesign a piece you no longer love!  Whatever your reason is, our custom design events are the perfect opportunity to create a piece of jewelry that you’ll love and cherish!

Events like these can seem daunting and you may be worried that your concerns and questions will get lost in the hustle and bustle of a busy store. While we can tell you that our team will help you, we hope you won’t feel overwhelmed or confused, and you’ll leave happy and excited for a new piece of custom jewelry, that doesn’t help to prepare you for what you’ll be doing or ease the stress that comes with an adventure like this one.  So, I’ll lay out exactly what you can expect during your visit!

1. When you arrive to your appointment, you’ll be greeted by one of Day’s Jewelers’ friendly staff members who can direct you right over to the design team.Design Time!

2. There, you’ll begin your design journey with our talented design team! With our team, you’ll be able to discuss with the ideas you may already have for your piece and work out a general plan for how to go about designing the piece you have in mind.  If you aren't sure exactly what you want to do yet, no worries!  Our team can walk you through the possibilities and process of creating your dream design!  You’ll be able to look through some of the pieces that we have already made to get ideas, inspiration, and an understanding of what you’ll be able to do. Whether you’ve come in with stacks of photos and a limitless imagination, or you’re not sure exactly what you’re looking to create, the Day’s design team is more than happy to assist you in the decision making process!  They will offer suggestions based on their years of jewelry experience, and will discuss with you the options available based on your preferences. There’s truly no limit to what they can do!


3. After you have a design in mind, our jewelry professionals will measure stones to fit your setting design.  Whether these are stones you already have, or you’ll be using stones from our wide variety of in-store options, they’ll be measured (and double checked) by our experienced team to ensure that everything will be exactly how you’ve envisioned it.

4. While the stones are being measured, you’ll be able to see exactly what your design will look like as our talented sketch artist will work personally with you to draw a full color, detailed sketch of your envisioned piece.  During this time, you’ll be able to make any changes you need to and begin to get excited for the beautiful piece you’re creating!  After the design is drawn, you’ll even get a printed copy of it to take home.

5. Finally, you’ll be able to get a price quoted to you on the spot so that you won’t leave wondering how much it may cost.  After you receive your quoted price, you can ask any questions you may have and give our team the go ahead to begin creating your product.  Our goal is to be sure that you can leave with the full understanding of what will be created, when you can expect it, and how our talented team will incorporate the pieces you may have brought into your final, beautiful piece of custom jewelry.

6. Over the next week or so, you can expect to receive a 3D rendering sent to you via email that you can take a look at before the piece is physically designed, just in case you have any lingering questions or concerns.  After you give the final approval, you can expect your piece to be finished in about 14 days, depending on the complexity of the design. 

Now that you know what to expect, what are you waiting for!? Our next custom design event will take place at our Nashua, New Hampshire location on Friday and Saturday, August 20th & 21st, from 10am-7pm.
