The journey first begins with a scheduled private consultation with our designer. This is a perfect opportunity for you to discuss designs, stones, and preferences within your specified budget.
The consultation can also take place virtually through online correspondence. Clients who are based outside of LA or overseas often work with us remotely via emails, text messages, google/zoom calls, photos and/or videos.
We pride ourselves on tailoring this process especially to you, and providing valuable advice, guidance, and education to make the journey just as notable as the final piece.
All MAKIKO WAKITA diamonds and gemstones are sourced through a local and global network of suppliers who align with our values on ethical sourcing and practices. Each diamond has a unique beauty, but few meet our high standards. MAKIKO WAKITA diamonds are graded for quality by the Gemological Institute of America,
an independent international organization.
Celebrate your unique love story with our curated collection of jewelry designs and tailor the design to your exact preferences and specifications. We can also explore a custom from the scratch design to fit your ideals, aligning with our aesthetics. Once the design has been finalized and your deposit is received, our development and manufacturing process will require total of 6 to 9 weeks to craft your piece.
CRAFTED FOR YOU
Your piece is now ready to be brought to life by our skilled team of Los Angeles-based gold suppliers and jewelers. As a small team, we are meticulous with the quality and finishing of our pieces. While we always aim to create your piece in a timely manner, please be mindful our craft requires time, precision, and attention to detail at each stage of production.
Throughout production, you will be kept up to date on the progress of your ring. You are welcome to reach out to us to check-in at any time; we will happily provide you with an update and rough timeframe if known.
With your piece now complete, we will be in touch to share professional photos of your ring to ensure you are more than happy with the result. After the final 30% payment is received, we will prepare your ring for collection or arrange couriered delivery to your confirmed address.
Your very own MAKIKO WAKITA piece is now ready for it to be part of your story.
