Kian Design is a custom design jewellery studio owned and operated by Kian Dastyar. Born in Iran, Kian brings 32 years’ experience to the work of a custom designed jewellery and manufacturing. He has worked in many of Australia’s top jewellery houses and enjoys building his own loyal personal clientele.
Kian is passionate about creating bespoke pieces of jewellery and custom re-modelling; he is ready to assist with suggestions and ideas on style and suitability.
The custom design experience
Customers bring their ideas, picture or inspirations to an initial appointment at Kian Design’s studio.
A member of the jewellery design team discusses the concept – preferred metal, gemstones, budget, etc. After discussion, a quotation is prepared outlining a complete description of the piece and its final price. A down payment of approximately 20% of the total price is then required.
Upon receiving the down payment, the gemstones are purchased and the unique design is created. Kian Design has access to a wide range of precious metals, diamonds and gemstones at a price and quality to suit all customers.
Kian takes great pride in forging quality relationships and in creating beautiful jewellery designed to be treasured over a long time.
Kian Design commences the manufacture of each piece after the final custom design is approved and it will usually be ready in approximately three weeks.
Technology and design
Kian Design uses 3-D (CAD) programs to create a wire frame model with state-of-art NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines) technology. NURBS is a mathematical representation for creating smooth curves and surfaces, giving an exact photographic rendering of each jewellery piece before it is actually cast. The design is easily viewed by email and easy to alter along the way. The customer is part of every stage of the creative process from 2-D to 3-D.
Kian Design was highly commended in the Nationwide Jewellers Design Award in 2015.
Kian Design has an online storefront at 1stdibs.
