2 Sketching & Design
Based on your consultation we can bring your design to life on paper while keeping in mind your budget and structural durability. After viewing the sketch, you give feedback and revisions until we get exactly what you envisioned.
Once you’re Satisfied with your custom design, you’ll put down a deposit and continue to the next step of the design process
3 Diamonds & Gemstones
Based on your design, desired quality and budget we find options for your perfect gem or diamond. At this meeting, you’ll get to see, feel, and hand select each stone that goes into your ring.
Our in-house design can engineer a 3D CAD model and send you a digital rendering of all angles of your design. We take the 3D concept to metal perfecting the metal weight, structural integrity, and potential carat weight. After your approval of the rendering, we send it to our 3D printer to “grow” a wax model!
5 Casting, Setting, Finishing
Behind the scenes, we begin the production process! We use the “grown” wax model and “invest” it to make a casting of your ring. From there, our master jewelers handsets the stones, add any handcrafted details. The final step of the production process includes adding texture and polishing your piece to perfection.
Finally, your design is complete and you can pick it up! We’ll talk about care and maintenance, provide an appraisal and documentation on stones. We look forward to seeing you again for your regular cleanings and maintenance!
