How does the creation of a tailor-made jewel take place at BenGems ?
Benjamin Mizrahi, our jeweler and designer, welcomes you to his workshop in the heart of Geneva for the manufacture of tailor-made jewelry adapted to your expectations. Depending on the maturity of your project, Benjamin will advise you and meet your needs. Thanks to his recognized expertise on the Geneva scene, our designer will create the tailor-made jewel of your dreams.
For this, Benjamin will take the time to get to know you to get an idea of what you imagine. After a moment of listening and exchange, he will put himself at the service of your desire to make it come true.
Beyond the manufacture of tailor-made jewelry, Benjamin will take you behind the scenes of his workshop. You can also take the opportunity to learn more about all the precious stones present in his workshop.
Imagination and modelling
1-Make an appointment with Benjamin Mizrahi so that he can identify your project. He will ask you all the necessary questions to fully understand your needs, desires, expectations and personal history.
2-After establishing the specifications, we can start to imagine several models for the project in the form of sketches.
3-Imagination is the first step in creation. The designer is inspired by precious stones from BenGems to let his creativity speak for itself by making drawings in gouache. Check out some of our jewelry designs below. The design selected from the sketch can then be modelled in 3D. This allows you to have an overview and to be able to visualize the jewel (earrings, bracelet, wedding ring, ring, necklace, pendant, etc.) from all its angles and in its real dimensions.
4-After obtaining the 3D modelling, we can proceed to the printing stage. To do this, the jeweller uses a specific wax that can be modelled by hand or using a 3D printer. This wax model will be used to make the mould.

Creation of a unique piece
5-Once the mold is made, comes the manufacturing step. The 18-karat gold is heated to high temperature to make it liquid and is poured into the plaster mold. This is then immersed into a bath to be cooled and then broken. Finally, the craftsman removes the raw gold jewel which will be reworked (cut, filed and adjusted …)
6-The stone.s selected for your future jewel can now be set in several ways: bezel-set, prong-set, rail-set, grain-set, etc. Each setting adapts to the shape of the stone as well as to the design of the jewel so that the rendering is as aesthetic as possible.
7-Polishing is the last step in the creation of the piece of jewelry in order to make it smooth and shiny. To achieve this, the polisher has many tools available depending on the part and the type of metal. Finally, the jewel can be immersed in an ultrasonic bath to remove any last traces and make the stones as shiny as possible.
8-Hand delivery of the finished part.
Once the creation of the piece of jewelry is complete, delivery is done by hand directly at Benjamin Mizrahi’s workshop.
The engagement ring is the perfect example of a tailor-made, unique creation that will accompany you for the rest of your life.
Making a unique, tailor-made piece of jewelry requires highly precise know-how and the skills of craftsmen who are experts in their field.
