At Redford Jewelers, we understand that having a piece custom made can be scary. We take the guesswork out of it by including our customers throughout the entire process.
Our expertise is custom design. Not only can we create beautiful pieces with stellar craftsmanship, but we know how to engineer a piece so that it lasts a lifetime.
Together with our customers, we decide on a design. This could be from drawings, photos or a combination. We want to know what YOU want! From there, we tweak the design as needed in order to make sure it a functional and stable piece.
We sell diamonds and all types of colored gemstones (we have fantastic sources!) or, our customers are welcome to bring in their own stones to be set in a piece.
After the stones and style are chosen, it's time to create the model!
We use the Lost Wax Casting Method to turn your dreams into a reality! A wax model of your piece will be created by hand by our jeweler, and you are invited back at that point to make sure all the measurements and specifications are correct.
Once the wax is approved, your piece will be cast into metal, stones will be set, and the piece is finished and polished.
Typically, the custom design process takes 2-3 weeks.
We strive to make Custom Design with Redford Jewelers an experience that will keep our clients coming back. We love creating lasting relationships with our clients, and have serviced generations of families across the United States.

Buying a Diamond
At Redford's, we take the guesswork out of buying a diamond. We realize that it's a big decision to make, and we enjoy educating our customers so that they may make the best choice for themselves.
We have an advantage in that we don't stock diamonds. That's right! We prefer to listen to our customer's needs and wants, and then bring diamonds in that fit within those parameters. This enables us to choose from a wide variety of diamonds from several trusted dealers all over the United States.
Diamond certification such as GIA, IGI or EGL is standard with all stones over 1 carat, but it common with smaller stones as well. We would be happy to find a certified stone for you.
Our knowledgeable staff knows just how to request diamonds from our suppliers, and we have many resources to find the perfect stone for you, at very competitive prices.
We also specialize in Canadian diamonds, colored diamonds and black diamonds.

All of our appraisals are completed by an Independent GIA Certified Gemologist.
Typically, appraisals take 48-72 hours to complete, and the client is given 2 hard copies with a photo and itemized breakdown of their piece.
We offer 2 kinds of appraisals:
1. Retail appraisal : this is the typical form for anyone wishing to formally insure their piece. Your piece will be priced on a retail basis, for replacement purposes, should your piece be stolen or lost.
2. Estate Appraisal : For families wishing to divide an estate. These appraisals are much lower in value, because the item is being taken "as is". (This works out better for the customer's end of things)
Appraisals are $65 per item (Wedding sets count as 1 item)
All items over $1500 in our shop come with appraisals, but they may be added to items under $1500 for an additional $65.
We recommend delivering your appraisal to your insurance company as soon as possible. Generally, insurance companies want an appraisal no older than 90 days.
Policies: / FAQ
Our items are one of a kind, and meet high standards for quality, purity and honesty. The majority of our colored gems come out of the Bangkok Market, through honest companies and dealers. Our relationship with our stone sources is based off of years or rapport, and we trust our sources. We strive to price our items fairly from the start. We have no commission salesmen and very few middlemen in our business. Please understand that we bring the best quality products to our customers for the fairest price possible.
The majority of our colored gems do not come certified. This is due to the quality of our dealers, and the standards in the industry. If you would like a colored stone certified by GIA, please send us an email.
Diamonds over 1 carat are almost always certified. Sometimes stones smaller than 1 carat are as well. Please note, that a GIA certified stone will carry a premium price. We always include the Certification in the package to our customers.
