Made to Order Jewelry
Your unique handmade piece
Atelier Shinji Ginza offer you the opportunity to have pieces designed individually for yourself or as a special gift or to mark a special occasion. With our expert guidance, you can create a piece which is completely personal and original, either with your own ideas or by collaborating with us. If you have your own idea of something you would like made, or if you just want a piece that is completely unique to you, we can help you to realize your one-of-a-kind piece with a custom made order. We work together with our clients through the whole design process. Our clients are able to verify the design at each stage to make sure they get exactly what they want. We can create pieces in your preferred material, such as gold, silver, platinum, white gold, palladium, etc.
Pricing of one-off pieces
Unique pieces can vary greatly in price, according to the intricacy and size of the design, your choice of material, etc. We generally start with a ¥40,000 prototype fee which covers the design in wax form, and then an additional amount for the piece realized in your choice of material, for example ¥10,000 for a Britannia Silver 958 pendant. To get a better idea of how much your ideas might cost to create, please contact us with your initial ideas and we will get back to you.
If you would like any existing Atelier Shinji Ginza design modified to suit your personal tastes, for example the incorporation of an extra element, adjusting a texture, etc. we are happy to be flexible with our existing designs.
Jewel resetting & reform
Give a new life to your unworn stones or pearls. Perhaps the stones are currently set in a mount which is outdated, or in a style that you don't like anymore. We can separate the stones from the old piece and incorporate them into our existing pieces at a reasonable price.
To get a better idea of how we can modify an existing design to reset your stone or pearl, please contact us.
Pricing of semi-custom-made, resetting & reform
The prices of our custom-made jewelry and jewel resetting service vary depending on your choice of material, any stones to be inset, and the intricacy of the design. Our resetting service starts from ¥1000 (for example, to incorporate one small pearl) plus the cost of the piece. To get a better idea of how much your ideas might cost to create, please contact us with your initial ideas and we will get back to you. From design to completion, our custom-made pieces can usually take between two and four weeks to craft. It is worth bearing this in mind if purchasing custom-made jewelry as a special gift.
Silver Baby Spoon (Semi-custom-made)
Silver baby spoons are a traditional gift for a newborn baby. We can personalize this keepsake gift with the baby’s first name on the front side, and the baby’s date of birth and weight on the back side. The spoon is approximately 97mm in length. A personalized Britannia Silver 958 baby spoon is ¥14,000+tax and our handmade process takes approximately 1-3 weeks. Please contact us for a consultation.
Sitting Dog Series (Semi-custom-made)
Viewed from behind, a sitting dog accessory can represent your loved furry family member, or make an interesting gift. A personalized Britannia Silver 958 Sitting Dog is ¥9,000 and the handmade process takes approximately 1-3 weeks.
1. Choose your dog (we can slightly modify these existing designs for example, to have a longer tail or smaller ears, etc. for ¥1,000 extra)
2. Choose the type of accessory: pendant head, pin brooch, or key chain (can also be used to attach to the dogs collar).
3. Write the name of the dog on paper, clear enough for us to replicate, and we will engrave it on the back of the piece. Please also indicate where you would like the name positioned.
The sizes of the pieces vary - 25mm for the smaller sitting dogs, 35mm for the larger sitting dogs.
In our collection (from left to right):
Corgi, Japanese Shiba, West Highland Terrier, Maltese Terrier, Chiwawa, Dalmatian, Cocker Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Dachshund.
Some of the sitting dogs look like other breeds, so please use your imagination! We also have sitting cats. Please contact us for any further information.
