Make Something Special

Get Inspired to Start Your Next Project

Future Heirlooms

Imagine giving or wearing a one-of-a-kind piece that you know will be treasured for generations to come. Fine jewelry — gold, gemstones, diamonds, engraving — is one of the few things that stands the test of time.

We Can Help Brainstorm

We'll make it easy for you to come up with the perfect motif for a special necklace or bracelet. Together, we can collaborate and make creative suggestions. Shown: a sweet diamond olive branch inspired by the name 'Olivia'.

Personalized for Your Price Range

When you have an idea of what you’d like to spend, we’ll propose designs and materials that will work with your budget. Typically, custom without gemstones starts around $1200 and increases depending on design and materials. Simple personalization can cost much less, such as this engraved pendant. SHOP IT NOW

Existing Clients Have it Even Easier

If you worked with us on a wedding or engagement ring, you’re already a step ahead; we can pull up original CAD files, check finger sizes, and generally have a feel for the style you’re going for. Shown: a custom pearl ring to complement her diamond band.

The No-Brainer Route

Rethink Your Old Gems

There’s nothing worse than having a jewelry box full of unworn jewelry. With a little imagination, we can reset many precious and semi-precious gemstones into new designs that you’ll actually want to wear. Shown: red jade reworked from old designs.

Spell It Out

A quick and affordable way to express yourself or keep loved ones close is to create initial necklaces with individual letters of your choice. Or try a tiny heart to wear always. HEART and MAMA pendants

My consultant Eric was fantastic! He helped us design a very special engagement ring to replace one lost many years ago. The new ring was a way to celebrate our 37 years of marriage. Thanks Eric. I love my ring!

I had an incredible experience working with Lauren and her team at Ethan Lord Jewelers. Lauren was very patient, attentive, reassuring, and caring... The proposal went great and seeing my fiancé's face light up when she saw the ring, I know I made the right choice to go with Ethan Lord.

Of all of the other jewelers we had talked with Danny was most insightful, helpful, patient, and took the time to educate us on the elements of diamonds as much as possible...  I would give it 6 stars if I could...

Every interaction we had was stellar from the 1st time we walked in to the moment we received the ring and thereafter. The vibe you get is that they are truly excited to see you and everyone enjoys being there.

Erika is an absolute pleasure to work with! With the help of Erika and my Fiancé, we were able to create the engagement ring of my dreams! Because of our wonderful experience, we are now in the process of designing our wedding bands! We cannot wait to see how they turn out! Thank you Erika and the Ethan Lord team

My fiance got my engagement ring with Eric at ELJ, and we went back for wedding bands. We love Eric! He shoots it straight, is very knowledgeable, and trustworthy. You can go and see Eric without any fear of being talked into nonsense about diamonds and jewelry! I recommend to everyone!

Shopping for wedding rings he was a great and fun experience. The first day we visited we were offered wine as a congratulations for our engagement. After that Lauren was very helpful and friendly through the whole process. We end up with a custom ring and had no issues with sizing or any part of the process.

Recently purchased engagement ring from them. Erika was fantastic and super helpful with putting together the custom design. Her knowledge on diamonds was super help with picking on the perfect stone. She showed me such a great range of stones in my budget, any of which would have been awesome, and I found one that ticked all the boxes... I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for jewelry!

The customer service was excellent from our very first appointment to look at engagement rings. Our wedding rings turned out beautifully and we had the fortune of working with Erika for our wedding band consultation. I would absolutely recommend Ethan Lord to my friends and family.

I came in knowing absolutely nothing about jewelry.. Danny was AWESOME to work with. He walked me through everything I needed to know. They had an unbelievable selection! I would highly recommend this place to anybody feeling a little lost in their ring buying experience.

There's no other place to even look at when it comes to engagement rings. The warm greetings from every employee to the detailed and friendly consultation from Eric, there's nothing I would change about my experience with Ethan Lord.

Engraving is a great option for almost everyone – and it’s pretty quick! We can create and engrave all sorts of classic designs. Shown: a handwritten love note laser engraved onto a simple gold bar pendant. Get Your Own!

If You're Totally Starting From Scratch

If you’re not even sure where to start, we'll create designs to choose from based on your style, price range, and wish list. Design starts at $150 and is applied to the cost of your final piece. Shown: one of 3 design options presented to a client who wanted a birthstone pendant.

A Hands on Approach to Design

Your design will likely go from pencil sketch to 3D CAD/CAM tech and prototypes, and then back into the hands of a master craftsperson. You’ll be able to see — and touch — your design during the various stages before the final piece is complete. See Megan's Experience
