Custom jeweler and designer Aaron Lelah has been creating custom-made, fine jewelry for over 42 years. Along with his master jewelers and associates, he has created thousands of unique and one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry and has a large selection of finished rings, pendants, earrings, watches and more in stock. If you have always wanted a unique piece of custom-made jewelry, Aaron and his associates can expertly design and make it to your specifications. Please come in, call or e-mail us with any of your custom jewelry questions or ideas. All custom jewelry is made on the premises and price quotes are free. Custom-made jewelry is usually designed on paper and then carved from wax which is destroyed by extreme heat in the casting process, known as lost-wax casting. Visit our store to view a step-by-step demonstration of the jewelry making process. Our jewelry designers custom carve each wax model individually, making each piece as unique as the person receiving it. If you have a picture or sketch of a design, this would be beneficial to us in creating your custom jewelry. We can also provide sketches or wax patterns of our designs for your approval. You can even take pictures of the process of your custom jewelry being made. This close, personal service helps to ensure that you get a very special one-of-a-kind treasure to enjoy for many years to come. Your creation could be almost any type of jewelry including engagement rings, wedding bands, company logo jewelry, unique pendants, bracelets, pins, money clips, or cuff links. Aaron Lelah Jewelers can cast your custom-made jewelry in white or yellow gold, sterling silver, or platinum. We can also use or give you trade-in value for any scrap gold you supply to make your custom jewelry piece. Any gemstones you desire can be set into your custom jewelry, including your own stones. If you can dream it, we can make it!

A well cut diamond beautifully reflects rays of light through its facets. The way the rays of light bounce from the facet defines the stone's fire and brilliance. The cut of the diamond is often confused with the shape of the diamond.
The Gemological Institute of America ranks diamonds on a 23-grade scale, D through Z. The highest rating, D, indicates a perfectly colorless stone. The colors range within a scale from colorless to near colorless, very light yellow and light yellow.
Clarity is defined by number, color, nature, size and natural marks in the diamond called inclusions. The fewer and smaller the inclusions, the greater the value of the stone. Optimal clarity means light is able to pass uninterrupted through the stone. The GIA determines clarity on an 11-part grading scale that ranges from FL to I3.
Carat weight is the easiest of the 4 C's to determine. Diamonds are measured in carats. One carat is divided into 100 "points."
