How we create One-Of-A-Kind Design

From Inception to Completion Our step-by-step process allows you to be a part of every design Step 1 Collaboration The process begins with a one-on-one meeting to discuss your idea or vision based on your taste or personal style. Together, we will collaborate on a design based on your budget.
Step:2 Renders Our professional designing team will convert our jewelry visions with the Computer Aided Jewelry Design program to a remarkably life like renders of what the piece will ultimately look like. You will receive four to size views of the custom creation.
Step 3: Design Approval After you receive you renders via email we wait for your approval. If we need to make any changes we can tweek the design at this time. Once the design is approved we move on to 3D printing of the wax. This advanced technology is improving every year. We are so excited that this year we were able to purchase our own machine to grow waxes in-house.
“ They’re lovely. Please proceed.”  Ema “That looks Fabulous!” Lisa “That looks beautiful!” Mitzi “Amazing! Please move forward.” Stacey
Step 4: Wax Model We use our in house 3D wax printing machine to grow the wax model for casting the custom piece of jewelry. 
Step 5: Preparation Once the casting specialists turn the wax into metal through a lost wax process, we take it from there again. All the pieces are hand cleaned, filed, and polished. Step 6: The Setting After the castings are carefully detailed it’s time for the stone setting. All diamonds and gem stone no matter how small are set by hand. We use the aid of jewelry microscopes to see the tiny detail.

What you need to know.

TeLayne Designs has you covered. If you are diamond shopping and don’t want to pay retail store prices, we are the solution for you. We are a diamond broker that does not caring inventory, therefore, we have low overheads and bring you the best most competitive prices.  With multiple, local diamond sources, we will find the perfect diamond for your budget and quality requirements.

Diamond Carat Weight

Diamond carat weight is one of the four C’s, measures how much a diamond weighs. As the size and carat weight increases, so does the price and rarity. One-carat is equal to 2.0 grams, about the same weight as a paper clip. A one-carat solid diamond is worth more than a total weight of one-carat from several smaller diamonds. My favorite way to help people think of carat weight is like a dollar bill. There are one- hundred points in a carat. While the size of a diamond is related to it’s carat weight, it’s important not to confuse carat weight with millimeter size. A one-carat diamond ranges from 6.3 to 6.7mm.

Diamond Cut

The diamond cut is also know as proportion or symmetry of the diamond. The cut speaks to how well you diamond was shaped and polished by the diamond cutter. A very important factor of a diamond’s cut is the relation of the diamond diameter to the depth. This determines the diamonds overall weight while ideally still holding an excellent to very good cut. The  light enters the top of the diamond and bounces around on the inside of the diamond and then is reflected back by the facets. A well cut diamond has the light bounce back out the top of the stone. A poorly cut stone will loose light out the sides or bottom of the stone. Even two proper cut diamonds can have different brilliance than one another thanks to Mother Nature. These details can’t be shown on a diamond report, and has nothing to do with Clarity and Color.

Diamond Color

Color is usually the first thing someone is sensitive to when viewing loose diamonds next to each other. You will be able to choose which color will fit you budget and taste boundaries. One of your diamonds values is determined by the color. A white or near white diamond is more valuable than a slightly off color diamond is. Fancy yellows, natural pink and blue can be very rare.

Diamond Clarity

Clarity refers to the natural inclusion or impurities from Mother Nature that are found in a diamond. The clarity affects the value of a diamond. The larger the diamond with higher cut, clarity and color, the more valuable it is FL-IF  rating means Internally flawless. To qualify for this grade a 20 power loop may be used. This can not be seen with the human eye VVS1-VVS2  rating means very, very slightly included. These grades is qualified with a 10 power loop. VS1-VS2  rating means very slightly included. Again the use os a 10 power loop is acceptable. SI1-SI2  rating means slightly included, and is graded with a 10 power loop. I1  rating mean included, which you can see with the bare eye. Don’t be too quick to rule out a diamond with an inclusion you can see. If the spot is one spot off to the side is can be a good bang-for –the-buck.  I will not sell I2-3 rated stones.
