What is Semi-Custom jewellery?


Semi-custom means creating a new ring, necklace or earrings based on an existing design in the Tsarina Gems collection.

For example, if you see a ring, necklace or earrings in our Ready-to-Wear collection or on our Instagram page that you like but you would prefer to choose a different centre stone or metal colour, that is possible!





Notice anything similar between these emerald earrings and this morganite necklace?


It's the same design!



My client made it their own by:

  • choosing earrings instead of a necklace

  • choosing emeralds instead of a morganite

  • choosing white gold instead of rose gold


Voila!


A unique, semi-custom piece is ready!

How do I know if Semi-Custom is right for me?


A piece of Semi-Custom jewellery is for you if:


  • you want to choose the perfect gemstone for your piece from a selection tailored to your taste

  • you don't want to go through the custom process of designing your ring, necklace or earrings from scratch

  • you want to choose your favourite from a collection of existing designs

The beauty of the semi-custom process is that you still get to choose a gemstone you love during the sourcing process and we'll pop it into an existing design!
