About Their Custom Jeweler

Jewelry designer and maker Tony Payne has been creating custom made jewelry for over 26 years.  For the past 15 years this has included online handcrafted jewelry sales.  If you would like a unique custom made ring or pendant, he can expertly manufacture it according to your specifications.  Email Tony at with your jewelry design ideas or custom jewelry questions.  All price quotes on custom jewelry projects are free.



How to Create Your Own Unique Jewelry

First, you decide on a unique design you want to have made into jewelry. Then send Tony an email with the description of what you want. If you have a picture or sketch of the design, it would help in giving you a price quote for your handmade ring or pendant.  If needed, he can send you a sketch of your design for your approval.

Tony will provide you a price quote based on the details of your design and the metal used. If you decide to proceed you make a down payment. A model of your design is then hand carved using special wax.  This wax model is destroyed, or burned out, by the extreme heat in the casting process.  This ancient jewelry making technique is known as "lost wax casting".  Visit the How custom jewelry is made page to view a step by step discussion, including pictures, of this jewelry making process.  The jewelry maker hand carves each wax model individually, making each custom ring or pendant as unique as the person receiving it.

During the process you will receive emails with pictures of how your custom jewelry is being made.  This includes photos of the hand carved wax model of your ring, charm or broach before it is cast in sterling silver or gold. You will also receive pictures of your finished jewerly. This close personal service and attention to detail helps to ensure that you get a special piece of custom jewelry that will be treasured for many years to come.

Your unique creation could be almost any type of jewelry including custom made sports championship rings, company logo jewelry,  unique pendants or pins, custom designed engagement rings and wedding rings, handmade sterling silver rings and pendants and unique custom class rings.

If you would like additional copies of your unique piece a rubber mold is made using the original. The labor charge for the additional pieces is much less than the labor charge for the original. This saves a great deal on the labor cost of the additional pieces you have made.


Your handmade jewelry can be created in yellow gold, white gold or sterling silver.  The gold can be either 10 or 14 karat. They can even use your scrap gold to make the unique jewelry you want.  Or, you can receive an allowance for gold you supply that is not used to make your custom ring or pendant.

Diamonds and any other natural gemstones can be supplied and set in your custom made charm, bracelet or broach at a reasonable price. Any gemstones you desire can be used including your own stones.  Synthetic gemstones, such as CZs and birthstones, can also be set in your one-of-a-kind custom jewelry.

All the jewelry pictures on this site are examples of the craftsmanship you can expect from Payne's Custom Jewelry. To view some more pictures of their completed custom made jewelry, wax models and sketches you can go to this Picasa Albums page.

The Cost of Your Custom Made Jewelry

The price for your unique custom jewelry depends on the complexity of the design, the precious metal used and whether any  gemstones are included in the piece. For a simple ring the labor charge to carve, cast and finish begins at $250.  The labor charge for a simple handmade pendant starts at $150.  The labor charge for a custom made sports championship or class ring begins at $1,200. 

The cost of the precious metal (sterling silver or gold) will depend upon the type (10 or 14 karat gold), it's weight in grams and current market conditions. If gemstones are used the price will depend on whether the stones are natural or synthetic, their size and the quality if natural. For multiple copies of your original piece the rubber mold will generally cost $100.
