You may feel lost, but chances are she has a Pinterest board or Instagram account that is full of Easter eggs.

In the end, you have helped draw from these interests to create something that they will cherish forever!
From finding the perfect center stone to sketching up design ideas, we're the experts so you don't have to be.
We do this everyday, from helping you decide which metal color works well with a teal sapphire, to how to choose a diamond for the love of your life.
We begin every design with a discussion of your needs, budget, and time-frame, either in one of our Seattle area design centers or online.
Whether you share a Pinterest board, know what you want, or save favorites from our site, you will be designing with experienced, artistic professionals.
By designing and manufacturing everything in house, we ensure extraordinary craftsmanship, unique, nuanced designs and great value.
Realistic renderings and physical models help transform sketched ideas into reality in an interplay between the client, the designer and the CAD team, all of whose input and ideas help create something that both looks right and fits perfectly.
The entire Kent Jewelry team collaborates on each piece, adding nuanced details and subtle improvements to the design, all while making sure that design cohesiveness, stability on the finger, and stone security are perfected.
If the piece is to be cast, and most are, we then create a wax or Resin master model. We have our own 3-D printers and growers as well as hand wax carvers onsite, to create the perfect blend of artistry and detailed perfection.
Once the design has been approved, the model is now set for casting. Our in-house casting facility is state of the art, with world class equipment and a custom casters' attention to detail.
Our Galloni platinum and gold casting equipment, one of the finest machines made, allows us to cast each piece perfectly for the best quality control & cost efficiency.
Most jewelers don't make their own jewelry. Even fewer cast in house, but we do to control each step and keep costs low.
Many of our designs have hand Forged elements. Forging hardens the metal and makes even fine elements durable enough to last a lifetime. We hand fabricate crucial elements for the finest detail and long life.
Hand made filigree is nothing like cast filigree. This incredibly intricate art form takes many years to master, and the fine details show. We are fortunate to have Several Master Filigree Artists, more than any other shop we know of.
We always hand set each gemstone, detailing all areas to perfection. We sharpen our gravers more often, work under bench microscopes and do all work in house. You are invited to visit and wath our artists work live here in our Studios. Compare the pictures in our Gallery to see the attention to fine detail & Craftsmanship.
Hand engraving is the art of hand cutting designs directly into the metal with highly polished specialty gravers. This is the hallmark of a true jewelry artist, and, like much of our work, is performed under a bench microscope for intricate detail.
The final stage of the production process includes adding textures & finishes. Before quality marking, we double and triple check all details of the design to ensure all instructions have been meticulously followed, the design is well executed and all craftsmanship is top notch.
Most projects take about 2-3 weeks from design approval. Design time varies, but give yourself enough time to enjoy the process, we are confident you'll enjoy it!
