We're limiting attendance to make sure everyone is comfortable in our cozy space AND there's a chance for everyone to ask questions of Betsy and Barrie who wants to. We love being cozy, but not TOO cozy, y'know? This means RSVP is required!! (RSVP link above!) You'll get a confirmation email once you reserve your spot.

Join us for a relaxed and fun evening of discovery as we walk through the custom design process. What you'll learn:

- How the custom design process works from start to finish. We'll review the phases of design, expected timelines (how/why they could deviate), plus get a better understanding of the time commitment needed from you as the buyer.

- What to expect when working with a designer: how much influence you could have, how much the designer could have, and where the ideas for the design come from.

- Overview of materials. Find out what matters when we're talking diamonds, karats of gold, alternative stones and more.

- Costs transparency. Get a better understanding of how the price of a custom project is calculated and the factors involved.

- How to create a realistic budget. We'll break down past projects and discuss common ways to arrive at a budget that feels good.

- What it's like working with our Designer, Betsy Cross. (spoiler: she's awesome.)

We'll have a little wine and snacks to nibble, a chance to ask Betsy and her Design Assistant, Barrie, your most pressing questions, plus get up close and personal with diamonds, metal casting, and more.
