The Process of Crafting Fancy Colored Diamond Jewelry

Each piece of fancy colored diamond jewelry is extremely rare and will hold a unique and important value to its owner. A great deal of thought is applied in the design and an enormous amount of heart is invested in the whole manufacturing process. The aim is to create an alluring piece of jewelry that is designed exactly according to the customer's needs.


Crafting the jewelry is incredibly comprehensive and extremely detail oriented. While all diamond jewelry requires applied thinking and immaculate design, the design of fancy colored diamond jewelry is far more complex. In fact, center stone jewelry manufactured by Leibish & Co., is custom made for each stone; unlike pave pieces, where the jewelry is first designed and only then are the stones applied.


From the moment the customer orders a specific jewelry piece, a meticulous process is followed until the finished product is ready. Manufacturing, designing, and crafting fancy colored diamond jewelry requires a delicate 9 - step procedure. Below are all the different stages of design through the process of manufacturing fancy colored diamond jewelry.
