The Process

The Ballard family has always prided itself on being real jewelers that design and make real jewelry, not just sell it.  Here is the process of custom jewelry design.  

It all starts at the discovery level, one on one, with each client. Using existing pieces, along with the dreams and the imagination of the client, our designers will work as a team to help you to visualize your creation. Sometimes this is simply done with a counter sketch to get things going.  

Next we use latest technology to bring the design to life. 3D modeling and Computer aided jewelry design software has made it possible to design more accurately, and faster than before. The exacting detail and creative talent of Ballard & Ballard has no limits. What ever can be imagined, can now be created. And what’s best of all, you can sit back relax and view your finished design in the comfort of your own home or office and we can email deliver a full color rendering of your design before work begins.

After any changes are made and upon final approval, the custom piece is created using the latest in modern manufacturing techniques combined with old fashioned hand craftsmanship and truly unique one of a kind is created.
