Your creativity, ideas, and thoughts are what makes jewelry yours and only yours. There is something to be said when you can say “Yeah, I designed that.”

Yes, custom jewelry can cost 15%-60% more than commodity jewelry, but the feelings and status that go with it are insurmountable.

After decades of being in the business of making memories, all of the designers at Robert Tucker’s have seen what it means to give or receive a custom made piece of jewelry – it’s unforgettable.

Don’t have an idea for a design… that’s okay. We have many ways to find inspiration to design your custom made jewelry.

Already have a stone or gem, platinum or gold?

Whether you bought your stone somewhere else, dug it up out of the ground, or inherited your stone, it deserves to be shown off to the world. We are happy to create something around it.

You’re never going to be told “We can’t work on anything you didn’t buy from us.” You’ll hear something closer to “Yeah, we can do that.” There is little reason to turn you away simply because you didn’t buy the stone from Tucker’s. When you have been creating jewelry for as long as we have we know folks collect jewelry from a variety of methods; some is inherited,  a gift during travels, or its purchased while living in other communities.  Heck, we need the work anyway and are glad to help.

The cost.

There is little we cannot make. It comes down to how much you want to spend?

We’ve made things from wedding rings to tiaras, pendants to broaches, ranging in price from $300 to $180,000.

Three ways to look at the cost of custom made jewelry:

  1. Your time: Figuring out what design elements you want takes time. The best way to do that is by observing various things in life. Once you have an idea – little or highly detailed ideas – meet with our designers to translate your thoughts into a wearable work of art.
  2. Emotions: Is the jewelry for you or someone else? Either way, when you wear it or give it to someone else, a rare feeling overcomes you letting you know how special you are – it’s a remarkable feeling.
  3. Financial: Making jewelry costs money, but you already knew that. With Tucker’s Honest Value Pricing, you always get the most for your hard-earned dollar. If we think you can find something similar to what you want to keep the cost down, we’ll tell you. And, if the metal market goes down your price goes down. It all comes down to what we stand for.

Three primary factors are taken into account when figuring price:

  1. Metals used: Common materials are available but each one has its own price based on the market value.
  2. Quantity of material needed: Considering the size and design of your jewelry, a specific amount of metal will need to be used. Naturally, the more material used, the more expensive it will be.
  3. Complexity of the piece: Is the piece of jewelry a simple design with easy lines or does it have multiple line, intricacies, and other features that take longer to create?

Set up an appointment with our designers to pinpoint the cost of your jewelry.

After we meet, you’ll walk away with a Honest Value Price that’s good for 30-days. If the design is a bit out of your budget, we’ll help modify it to see if we can lower the cost.

Schedule an appointment to talk with a designer to better understand the custom jewelry making process and how much your custom made piece of art will cost.


Half of the cost is due when the project begins and the remaining amount is due upon completion.

Accepted payment includes debit, credit or cash.  Loaning money is one thing we’re not good at. We’ve left financing to the banks. However, we do offer layaway.

It takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to craft custom jewelry

The 5-step process to craft custom jewelry is about 2 to 4 weeks. However, more complex designs may take up to 6 weeks.

When you talk with one of our designers, they’ll provide you a completion date that is based on your design.

Because we’re helping to create a little piece of art, rush services are typically not available, but you can be confident when a completion date is given, your jewelry will be ready.

In the case when your jewelry is finished we’ll give you a call, send you a text or an email; whichever is your preferred method of contact.

Ready to start?

Time is one of the most valuable asset we have as people. While you’re not obligated to set up an appointment, you’re welcome to if it helps schedule the day. When you do, plan for about 50-minutes of your time to discuss your design, discuss any special requests, and to review the process. To speed up the process, consider bringing pictures of items that help demonstrate the elements you want included in the design or any notes you may have.

Contact us with any question. We’re always happy to help.
