By Design Jewelers is a family owned custom jewelry store located in Coral Gables. Visit our studio where we specialize in the custom design and manufacturing of fine jewelry. We also offer expert jewelry repair to the Greater Miami area.


By Design Jewelers invites the customer to view its original creations or work with its designers, Erik Lopez & Gaye Luaces, in designing a piece of fine jewelry. Our jewelry is a product of good design, quality materials and excellent workmanship. Each piece is a labor of love with scrupulous attention given to every element. Hours are spent deciding on the appropriate scale and proportions. Every gem is carefully selected and matched. Every surface is meticulously finished, every stone is perfectly set. Whether you are looking for the perfect diamond for your engagement ring or you wish to redesign an old piece of jewelry, our designers are here to help.


By Design Jewelers specializes in custom designed fine jewelry made in platinum, white, yellow and rose gold. Each piece of jewelry uses the highest quality in diamond, pearl, precious and semi-precious gemstones.


By Design Jewelers began its operation in Coral Gables, Florida in 1985 under the direction of jewelry and interior designer Gaye Luaces. In 2003 Gaye's son, Erik Lopez, with over two decades of design experience, joined the family business, and in 2008, became the Creative Director and Chief Executive Officer. By Design Jewelers opened a second jewelry boutique in Valle Crucis, North Carolina that is run by Gaye and Frank Luaces at the Inn at Little Pond Farm.
