UNIQUE & INTRICATE DESIGN
Every custom jewelry piece reflects the true essence of the wearer. State of the art diamonds, unique and intricate design, and unparalleled craftsmanship are the signum of A.P. Shaps and we will work closely with you to create the jewelry piece of your dreams. Meet our in-house designers and gemologist and soon your dream will become a reality.
Choose your gemstone
The house of A.P Shaps carries the largest in-house inventory of Diamonds and Colored Gemstones in Scandinavia. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to sit down and compare different diamond sizes and qualities after your own preference. Our gemologists and designers will guide you forward and suggest stones that may be extra suitable for the type of jewelry and wear that you’re after.
Design your jewelry
A diamond from A.P. Shaps is always selected for its impeccable quality and personal character. Completely free of visible inclusions and blemishes, each diamond is cut to reveal its innate brilliance, magical qualities and spectacular fire within. A diamond that is well cut, with facets subtly angled och symmetrical, will ensure that the light refracts through the diamond to optimize and enhance its beauty and overall sparkle.
Get a quotation and finalize the design
Most often, we will finalize the design during your consultation and get back with a quotation with you at the same time. In some cases, for example if the design is more complex, we may draw up a design rendering to give you a better idea what your piece would look like. We will send you a quotation as soon as possible and you are always welcome to make changes as many times as you wish before going ahead with the design.
Your jewelry piece will be crafted totally by hand in the A.P. Shaps atelier en Stockholm by our skilled goldsmiths. The process to create a new piece takes from 2-4 weeks depending on the complexity of your design. Your sales representative will keep you informed during each phase of the process. For some designs, a personal fitting will be needed just before the diamonds are being set. This is to assure the right size and design before finalizing the piece.
Your new jewelry piece will come with an A.P. Shaps Certificate, verifying that your stones are real and free of conflict. If you’re purchasing a diamond that’s above 0.30ct, you will receive a GIA certificate for your diamond(s). If your piece is a part of our High Jewelry, we will also give you a complimentary valuation made from a third-party company verifying the market value and (new) retail value.
