About Us

Fine jewellery pieces are an investment. They are also weighted with emotions, meaning, and messages. It is my mission to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy a custom jewellery design experience. The journey to create a completely customized, one-of-a-kind piece that tells a story, imparts a feeling, and lasts a lifetime is not reserved only for the elite. Anyone with any budget can benefit from the skill, knowledge, insight and experience of a custom jeweller. This opportunity is yours with Refined Custom Jewellers.

Luxury Service, Accessible For Everyone

I am Carey Spanbauer-Wilde, GIA and CJA-certified jeweller, diamond appraiser/grader, and gemology student. Jewellery is my passion and I am committed to providing an elevated level of service and a unique custom jewellery design experience to everyone that is seeking beautiful, high-quality engagement and wedding rings, necklaces, bracelets, precious stones, earrings, and more.

My background is in art history and interior design, but I have leveraged my appreciation for art and design into more than a decade of custom jewellery creation. My trade is in luxury stones and metals, but I promise service that is approachable, comfortable, and down-to-earth. It is my goal to become your partner, your collaborator, and your trusted expert in the creation of the jewellery pieces that mark every occasion in your life.

I believe that LOVE IS LOVE and I am committed to providing 
a safe, supportive, inclusive, and dynamic space 
for everyone to create a beautiful custom jewellery piece for anyone they choose to love.


A Custom Jeweller For All

You may think that only the famous and uber-wealthy have their own custom jewellers, but this is simply not true. Working with a custom jeweller is not about the price, it is about a trusted relationship and the confidence that every piece in your jewellery collection is made with top-quality materials, beautifully designed, and maintained meticulously over time. Having a custom jeweller for your most treasured pieces does not have to cost more than buying jewellery from a national chain retailer.

Let’s Get Started!

Is it time to ask your love to spend their life with you? Do you want to design a completely unique custom jewellery piece to mark an anniversary or other special occasion? Do you have quality jewellery that feels outdated or no longer reflects who you are?

Do you have pieces that might be more valuable than you think? Book a FREE CONSULTATION at Refined Custom Jewellers and let’s get started on a journey to create beautiful jewellery that will make a statement today and for years to come.

The Refined Custom Jewellers Difference

I am not your typical jeweller. Do you hate the experience of walking into a jewellery store only to feel diminished by a jeweller or sales associate who is snooty, pretentious, and only concerned with your budget? The Refined Custom Jewellers client experience promises to be different from what you have come to expect with other jewellery stores. Here’s how:

  1. A Different Buying And Design Experience: For the most part, I am a one-woman-show. My design studio is private and you will deal only with me every step of the way. I am available and responsive, so you will never feel ignored or relegated to the back of the line. I can work within any budget to create a piece you will love.
  2. A Thorough, Informative Journey: I am passionate and knowledgeable about diamonds, precious stones, and quality metals. I promise to share my experience and insight with you so that you can make the most informed choices and decisions as we collaborate on your unique, customized jewellery.
  3. A Lasting Partnership: Our relationship does not end when I present you with your completed piece. I offer a five-year warranty, digital and hard copies of your appraisal, and all documentation necessary for insurance. I will help you keep a regular schedule of maintenance, repair, and cleaning so that your treasured custom design lasts a lifetime and beyond.

I am really good at what I do and I value the relationships I foster with each and every client. I promise high-quality materials, exquisite craftsmanship, and elevated service. I want to be your custom jeweller, the person you trust with your most-treasured pieces today and for generations to come!

Deposit And Creation

Deposit And Creation

This is the part when our collaboration begins to come to life. You can handpick your diamonds, stones, and metals. I will create 3D renderings and wax models so you can see exactly how your piece will look and fit.



This final step is a 4-part process in itself. After perfecting the design during the creation phase, I will craft the completed version of your piece. This includes casting, setting, polishing and buffing and delivering a custom, quality piece that encompasses everything you dreamed of.

It is my goal to be your personal jewellery expert. Your go-to for every jewellery need. My services include jewellery analysis, appraisals, inspections, maintenance and repair, ready-to-purchase, previously-loved jewellery upcycling and re-imagining, and custom engagement and jewellery design.
