Creating Your Custom Vision
Vandenbergs specializes in the custom design and crafting of fine jewellery. Working in all forms of precious stones and metals, our goldsmiths create pieces that are destined to become treasured family heirlooms.
Whether it’s a classic solitaire engagement ring meant to show your diamond in all it’s beauty or an intricate creation showcasing an exquisite ruby or emerald, our goal is to craft a unique and personal symbol of your love.
Unique to Vandenbergs is our non-commissioned team approach.
This approach allows the input from an amazing team of experienced designers, goldsmiths, and gemologists, all focused on making your dream a reality. The process begins with a consultation with one of our designers. Our focus is on listening. What are your personal tastes? What is the occasion? What statement would you like to make? Our designers will then take those inspirations and turn them into several designs.
In our next consultation, we will review the scale sketches, watercolour renderings (done on translucent velum so that you can see the item on your hand) or CAD concepts and decide on the final design. From there, we will take your dream and turn it into reality
On your first visit, we will talk about all the aspects of your potential creation, it’s purpose, style, construction, materials and gems. We’ll view our extensive collection of gems and metals and do sketches on the spot to clarify the design.
2. Gem Search
We search the world for the gemstones to complete your item! Through our extensive contacts in the gem world, we are able to source the best product for your perfect piece – beautiful, vibrant gemstones that meet the specifications of any design.
3. Follow Up
When everything is in place, we will have a consultation where you view the scale drawings, paintings or CAD concepts of the designs and choose from the exquisite selection of stones we’ve collected just for you. It’s at this point in the process that we can fine tune the components and make this design uniquely yours.
At Vandenbergs, we have the unique advantage of having three accomplished Master Goldsmiths with skills covering all forms of jewellery crafting, all done on site. Our goldsmiths take the materials we have selected and create your unique piece.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed! When your piece is complete, we invite you to come in to inspect and confirm that all of your expectations are met. Where it doesn’t meet your desires, we are happy to make the changes.
And finally… the fun part, where you get to take it home and create a memory –
get engaged, say your vows, celebrate Christmas or a special anniversary. Enjoy!
