By now, you probably have an idea of what you want your dream ring to look like. Whether you just started looking, have some ideas pinned on Pinterest or want to create something completely from scratch – we’re here to help you every step of the way! (if you want to set up a consultation appointment click here) Although the designing process is different for everyone, the creation of the ring typically takes 4 - 6 weeks. 4 - 6 weeks may feel like a long time, especially in a world where we have access to next day, and even same day delivery; however there are a lot of steps in which your dream ring has to go through before it comes out all sparkly and ready for your hand!
The first step your design goes through, after it is approved by you, is a validation process, where the 3-D design is looked over for anything that may not meet our production standards. After the design file is examined, we have the option to make a wax model of the ring for you to view before it gets cast in your metal of choice. Now the wax may be a dark green and not as pretty as the real deal, but it gives you a great idea of the proportions of the ring and how it will fit. If anything doesn’t meet your expectations, we are able to make minor adjustments to the design and create the wax again.
Next in the process, the ring gets cast in the metal of your choice - whether it’s in white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, white gold/palladium, palladium, or platinum. After the ring is cast from the wax model, it is then polished, and the stones are set. Our jeweler, with over 40 years of experience, then looks over each piece with extreme scrutiny and makes sure that it leaves our hands in perfect condition. We also make sure your ring was created in the correct metal quality and made in your exact size.
The last and final step your ring goes through after we’re done gawky over how beautiful it is, is a small photo session that we then post on our social media (when it is safe) and email to you upon request.
So it may be difficult to have to wait for your custom designed creation, but it’s definitely worth it!
