Q: How do custom orders work?
A: You can arrange to do a free one on one consultation with Jennifer either by email/over the phone/FaceTime/Skype/or if you're in NYC, in person at our UWS Atelier. Jennifer will go through your jewelry and craft a vision of what type of piece could be made from your treasure. We will give you a price estimate and if you're ready to move forward, Jennifer begins to work her magic turning your pieces into an instant heirloom. It takes roughly 3 - 4 weeks to complete a custom order.
Q: How much do custom pieces cost?
A: In general, pricing is determined by the complexity of the piece, plus the cost of added elements from my own collection that I'll mix with yours.
Full necklaces start at $1500.
Full bracelets start at $1200.
Bolos start at $595.
Lavalieres start at $295.

Q: What DEFINES AND INSPIRES Jennifer George?
A: "In design, the past always seems to inform the future. I can look through a selection of old jewelry, long forgotten -- perhaps belonging to someone's grandmother, and I am constantly surprised and amazed by the level of detail, from design to execution, that was involved. I find this, along with color, scale, and theme, very inspiring -- and all of it is at play when I'm working on a piece." -Jennifer George
Q: How many items are produced of a certain style or print? Are all the items limited editions and one-of-a-kind pieces?
