CUSTOM SPECIAL ORDER

ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECES FOR YOU

PROCESS

At our initial complimentary consultation, we will discuss your personal style, your way of life, and what makes this piece important. Of course you can also request a custom version of the design you see already on our website. We will go over all the details as well — timeline, budget, materials, sizing.

Next, we will draw out a few sketches based on our first meeting. Once you have selected a design, we will send you a completed rendering for your approval. Then we will begin working with our favorite artisans and stone setters in Los Angeles to bring your perfect piece to life. After 4-6 weeks, your jewels will be ready to head out the door to you.

STONES

We have access to the best of the global gem trade, not only diamonds but also color gems. We look for stones that are full of character, with unique cuts, unusual colors, or simply a special glow that lets us know that "this is the one." We want our stones, like our designs, to be one-of-a-kind.  We typically work with non-conflict natural stones, but we can also work with lab grown (ethical eco-friendly) sustainable option. 

 

FAQS:

Consultation fee?

We do not charge a consultation fee. Once a design has been selected, we require a 50% deposit to begin production. The remainder is due before delivery.

Will you work with my stones? 

We are more than happy to work with heirloom stones! However, we can also source special stones to suit your needs, including vintage, antique, and custom cut creations.

Do you make men’s bands?

YES! We can customize a classic look, or create something non-traditional. 

What is your timeline for custom pieces?

We typically require 4-6 weeks of production time after final design approval. If your timeline requires special attention, just let us know!

 

Do I need to be LA based?

Not at all. Though we love to meet our clients in person, we realize it is not always possible. We can work via email or video chat (i.e. Zoom or Google Hangout) to work through the initial design phase.  

Where can we meet?

We currently do not have physical showroom space, so just email info@makikowakita.com to start the conversation!
