Jewelry Design and Fabrication: This is
obviously our first love, which is why we
call ourselves Agha Designs Custom Jewelry
Studio. However, we do perform a magnitude
of other tasks, and are very good at performing
them as the other links below will show.
Jewelry can be made from the simplest
methods, to the most complicated with an associated
"sliding-scale" on price.
simplest custom piece, or what we would call
"semi-custom" is where you select
a gemstone - assuming you want a gemstone
as part of your design - (from our huge collection),
pick a "setting" from a catalog,
or something you like at our website, and
we build the piece for you. This selection
is the most reasonably priced option.
next level up is where you do the same thing
as above, but ask us to modify the selected
setting by adding more "heads" or
converting a pin to a brooch or vise versa.
This selection obviously adds some more cost
to your piece, and further up the "semi-custom"
truly custom piece, is where you come in with
an idea in your head, and nothing in our vast
supply of settings or findings catalogs fulfills
your "vision." This is where we
design a piece "from scratch" for
you. The creation of design is a journey we
take together. The customer starts the process
with an idea ("I like this color",
"I want this shape," "I've
always wanted a Tanzanite ring") - the
start-up thoughts are endless. At this point
we get involved and provide our expertise.
We guide the customer through both the aesthetic
and technical bits so that they end up with
a piece that's not only wearable, but also
obeys the laws of physics, and will be around
for future generations of the customer's family.
actual creation of the agreed design can then
take many forms. The piece could be
or any combination of the two.
Old Jewelry into New: This selection by
the customer involves many of the elements
of both semi-custom
, or custom
jewelry. Here the customer brings us several
pieces of jewelry, usually heirlooms, that
they really like but don't want to wear as
they exist. This could be because they're
either out of fashion, or they're too large,
or the list goes on. We can take elements
of these pieces and combine them to make a
finished piece that fits the customer's lifestyle.
In the most extreme case we might totally
disassemble the piece and using the gemstones
and the gold from the piece - create a completely
Welding: This very Hi-Tech device enables
us to wok on some of the most delicate jewelry

very precious antiques to creating new and

Yes we sell gemstones. We have collected gemstones
for over 20 years, and have over 7,000 (one
of these days we'll actually count them!)
in our collection. Besides the standard "big-four"
Diamonds, Rubies, Sapphires, and Emeralds
we have the semi-precious and unusual names
like Heliodor, Sunstone & Padparadcha.
Gemstones: If you are a collector, and
have a special need for a particular stone
of collector quality, please write or call
us. We have a large network of suppliers that
we can access, if we don't have the gemstone
in our inventory.
Jewelry: Sometimes customers, having lost
a loved one, ask if we can build them a piece
to help them remember and cope during a difficult
period. The piece we build can range from
simple lockets with pictures or a lock of
hair to a more complex piece that actually
holds a small portion of their loved one's
ashes. Let us know your needs, we would be
happy to work with you.
Jewelry: Is your spouse or child a sports
nut? Do they have a "Team Number?"
We can make a custom piece with their team
number, cast specially for them. Contact
us with your requirements, and let us
