Custom Designs

 Many people come to me with ideas for engagement rings or other custom jewelry projects. This is my favorite part of my job. Whether you have a stone, a family heirloom you’d like to update, or just an idea, I’d love to help you turn your inspiration into the jewelry piece of your dreams.


“My Porter Gulch wedding band is perfect. It is exactly what I envisioned.” - MacKenzie  “Brooke's work is wonderful and her talent beyond words. She is a pleasure to work with and I will continue to purchase her art again and again!” - Nancy  “Brooke created a custom brushed gold engagement ring for my fiancé. She communicated throughout the whole process and was very sweet and helpful.” - Grace 




My Process


Working on a custom project is my favorite thing to do. Here’s how we’ll work together:

1 | To start, we brainstorm. You share with me your ideas, photos, and materials (if you have them). We can do this online via email, in person at my showroom in downtown San Francisco, or over the phone.

2 | Next, I sketch some ideas based on our brainstorm and share them with you. We refine the idea until you love it.

3 | After we have a final design, I create a CAD (computer-aided design) image of the piece so you can see exactly what it will look like in real life. Looking at the CAD image, you let me know if there are any changes you want to make. 

4 | Then I get to work with my team—casting, stone setting, polishing. And, voila! Your custom piece of jewelry is born. 

* Custom pieces take about three weeks to complete once we have a finalized CAD design.

Responsibly-Sourced Materials  


Porter Gulch jewelry is made with responsibly-sourced gemstones. I’ve built relationships with gem cutters, diamond wholesalers, and natural gemstone sellers to procure high-quality, responsibly-sourced gems on your behalf. And for the environmentally-conscious client, I work with recycled and antique diamond sellers.
We'll discuss your stone preferences in our brainstorm meeting.
