At TEA, we don’t take existing designs and recreate them. All our pieces are unique creations of TEA and can be found nowhere else.

Once we have gathered enough information and have had a discussion clarifying the concept of the custom work, we will create a ballpark estimate for your jewelry.  As a first step to lock in the project, we require major gemstones and luxury watches to be paid for in full.  

Our team is happy to source conflict-free diamonds, gemstones, or luxury timepieces if needed, but we are also open to using clients’ gemstones or watches at our discretion. Additionally, we require a 50% deposit on orders over $5000. Any orders under $5000 must be paid in full before any work begins.   

Our jewelry designers will take your ideas, drawings, and images and work with you to create a design concept. Our staff at Third Eye Assembly can help you select the perfect conflict-free diamonds and sapphires for your design.

Hand Drawn Rendering

Once your design concept has been finalized and an order placed, we will create a hand-drawn design utilizing a professional graphic editor to display multi-angled renderings of your piece.  This will be shared with you for your approval or any requests you may have for modifications. 

Once your design concept has been finalized and an order placed, we will create a wax or computerized (CAD) model that displays your piece’s multi-angled renderings. We’ll share images and your wax or CAD model with you for your approval or requests for modifications.

Finished Piece

Upon your final approval, our production team will engrave, cast or fabricate the design in the precious metal of your choice. Your gemstones are then meticulously set by our expert craftsmen. Lastly, your beautifully finished piece is thoroughly inspected by our Quality Assurance Team, aka Buddy.  The final balance is due before the jewelry is shipped to you.
