I came to John with a very odd request. I wanted a ring that looked like a pizza made with 18k gold and rubies for the pepperoni. I honestly thought I would be laughed away since John is a designer of high end jewelry and I was asking for pizza made out of gold. Sort of a high/low piece. Instead of laughing me off John told me a brief personal story and said he would love to make the ring for me and expressed excitement about the project. I was not disappointed. The entire process which was really quite quick was an absolute pleasure. John was responsive, professional, friendly and genuinely interested in making the ring. The final product is 100 times better than what I even imagined. I have definitely found my jewelry designer for life. I can’t wait for whatever project lies ahead for us to work on together!

Details: Ring • Custom design and fabrication • Gold • Gemstones (e.g., Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby) • At the pro’s location

John was great to work with. He responded promptly from the very first communication, and stayed in touch throughout the entire process. His work alone speaks for itself, but he backs it up with his great communication. If you're looking for custom jewelry, stick with him.

Impossible to overstate the quality of service I received from John at Alithea Design. My wife had a single heirloom diamond stud earring that she wanted converted into a pendant necklace. I had previously taken it into multiple jewelers and was unsatisfied with the quotes i had received. With my wife's birthday fast-approaching, I was nervous I wouldn't have it ready for her. John put me at ease with his punctuality and quick responsiveness. In a few short weeks I received the finished product in the mail and the quality is phenomenal. I'd recommend Alithea Design to anyone.

John Vardis designed my jewelry with expertise that was beyond my expectations. The pieces are just beautiful. He made sure that I knew the process and he was very responsive to my questions and thoughts related to the designs. I’m thankful to him for capturing just what I wanted. I will definitely request him for my next custom jewelry.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The price of your design is custom-tailored to ensure you are free to fully explore your vision. As part of our transparent and personalized experience, I make sure the price you pay matches your exact design.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    With Alithea Design, my process is tailored to fit your purpose and vision. To start off we will discuss and explore your design to ensure you are getting the perfect piece for your loved one. Once we have identified your vision, I provide an immediate estimate of the cost and time that will be needed to create your one-of-a-kind piece. This is so we can stay aligned on the time and resources needed throughout the design process. Once we determine the project timeline, I provide you with a quote that we stick by and a 3D rendering of the design for your review and approval. Once we receive approval, we kindly request a 50% deposit in order to start and the balance is settled upon completion.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Master Diamond Cutter (AIDC) Diamonds Graduate (GIA) Masters in Business (MBA) Bachelors of Arts (BA)
