The Process

Every piece begins with Chris, and every item he designs passes rigorous review by our skilled artisans. As a team, we make sure the design is beautiful and will stand the test of time.


Our engineer ensures the piece will be durable and can be constructed affordably. Our craftspeople make each design to the high-quality standards Chris demands. Our finishing expert brings out the beauty of the material allowing it to radiate from every angle. Our stone setter ensures that all stones are set to bring out the brilliance nature intended.


A quality inspection is the final step, just before the jewelry is shipped to you. In the end, your jewelry is crafted using as many as fifty steps per item. Some pieces take well over five hundred steps!


The team we have assembled at Chris Ploof Designs is comprised of the best of the best—true experts in the field of jewelry making.
