Custom designed Burmese ruby and diamond ring in 18kt gold.
A beautiful custom designed jewel is an expression of the wearer's passions,  lifestyle and tastes.  Creating such a jewel requires a close collaboration between client and the designer to develop a striking design and translate it into a beautiful jewel.

At Bijoux Extraordinaire,  we specialize in helping clients create custom jewels.  We believe that beautiful custom jewelry must bring together three critical elements:

  • An imaginative, personal design,
  • Beautiful gemstones, and
  • Uncompromising craftsmanship.
