Proposing with a custom designed engagement ring will take your proposal to a whole new level. Choosing to design a ring with a local custom jewelry designer is a fun process that can add a lot of sentimental value to the ring.
Step 1 – Initial Consultation
At the initial consultation you will meet with the designer to review your initial design ideas, budget and timeline. It is at this initial meeting that you provide us with styles and designs you might like. We will review metal selection and stone ideas. We will ask you a lot of questions and help you uncover the answers that will ensure a ring that will wow.
Step 2 – Diamond/Stone Selection
Based on your budget and stone requirements, we will review some stone options with you. In many cases, we will then order the stone(s).
Step 3 – Ring Drawing
We will present you with concept drawings based on our initial consultation. When you see a drawing, you will be able to share what you like or might like changed.
Step 4 – Ring Creation
Once we have an approved drawing we begin creating the ring. We start with creating the band from the chosen metal.
Step 5 – Finishing Touches and Stone Is Set
Once the band is created, we apply all the finishing touches and set the stones. This is where the ring really begins to shine.
Step 6 – Pick Up and Appraisal
When you pick up your one-of-a-kind masterpiece we review the ring with you and send you home with an appraisal of the ring as well.
The entire process of creating a ring is smooth; however as it is all custom created, it does take time. Generally, a ring can take 3 to 4 weeks from start to finish.
