Your custom ring journey will start with ideas and inspiration.

When you contact your Krikawa designer, they'll start putting your ideas into sketches, mockups, and illustrations. 

As your dream ring develops, you'll receive pricing and budget options.

At last, your dream ring is in the hands of the goldsmiths who will sculpt your ring out of precious metals and gems; a treasure to last a lifetime.


Placing Your Order

Order Online for Priority Service

What's priority service? Your special order is handled by a single design consultant who will review your details and connect with you immediately.  They'll put the order through our workshop and carefully watch over it to make sure it gets made perfectly.  Priority service can take a week or two off of the turnaround time of your ring!  

Concierge Design Service

If you don't see exactly what you want in our portfolio, create your dream ring with the help of our designers and stone experts, led by the design talent of Lisa Krikawa.
