Designed with intention and love. Made 100% just for you.


Whether you want to start from scratch or add heirloom stones to a pre-existing Salt Grass design, we're here to help. Salt Grass has been creating unique custom work for over four years. We have two custom options.

Our basic level of customization allows you to add diamonds or gems to any of our pre-existing designs. The customization fee is $199 and usually takes about 3-6 weeks to complete. Your fee includes two meetings with Kristi to discuss your design plan and go over any stones you'd like to use. Then we add the jewelry price and the type of stone setting to get your final invoice. Don't have heirloom stones? No problem. We're here to help source the best natural stone options for you. Stone setting options start at $125 per stone and go up based on the size of the gem, the setting type, and the metal.

Our fully custom option is open for fine engagement rings only and starts at $1999. It does not include the price of your stones or diamonds. Most engagement rings take 5-6 months to create and extensive communication. We offer design options and mood boards and look at samples of work along the way to ensure you are over the moon with your one-of-a-kind engagement ring. The average price of our custom engagement ring ranges between $3500 - $5000. Payment plans are available.

client testimonial

“Following my divorce, I didn't know what to do with my wedding band. I had this unique piece, made by Kristi, that I felt so connected to but no longer felt comfortable wearing. It didn't seem right to just sell it so I reached out to Kristi to see if there might be ways we could salvage the material and transform the ring into something new-- something that could symbolize my own transformation. I asked Kristi if we could melt the ring and turn pieces of it into beads that could be threaded onto a bracelet my grandmother made and into earrings I could give my partner. It felt like just the right way to upcycle my old piece.

Kristi helped guide me through a transformation process that was mindful and intentional. She suggested that on the day the ring was melted that I conduct my own sort of ceremony to honor myself and the transformation that was taking place. I gathered with my partner and family and held a fire ceremony. I was nervous and vulnerable but was held and seen by the people I love most. Each person shared a poem and spoke to the beauty they saw in me. It was a chance for others to see, feel, and share my grief. I wrote on a piece of paper all the ways my marriage did not serve me and about the symbolism that melting down a beautiful ring and transforming its beauty into something new was a reflection of my own journey. I cast that sheet of paper in the fire and moved on.

Working with Kristi has been nothing less than graceful. I'm grateful to know and work with an artist who can support the sort of vision I had and do so with such thoughtfulness. I hope others out there feel empowered to transform and integrate their mementos, and experiences, into something new and beautiful.

Thank you for everything, Kristi.”
