Step 1. Consultation: This initial meeting typically ranges from a half hour to an hour.
Here you’ll meet with a designer to nail down the design and the budget. Ideas will be fine tuned, numbers will be reviewed and a timeline will be set.
Step 2. Diamond or stone selection: Depending on what you're looking for we will be offering you a variety of diamonds with various options in sizes and Quality.
Step 3. CAD (Computer-Aided Design): A custom CAD can take anywhere from 2-5 business days to complete. Once completed, it can be e-mailed directly to you.
After you’ve selected the center stone, a 3D CAD rendering will be created, giving you an idea of how the finished ring will look. At this point in the design process, you should have the ability to change the design, make tweaks to the piece, or simply go ahead with the next step.
Step 4. Wax: Approximately 2-3 business days from CAD approval.
If you so choose, once you approve the CAD, an appointment can be set up for you to see the wax of the ring design.
Step 5. Ring is cast: Approximately 2-5 business days, depending on the desired metal.
Your masterpiece can be cast into whichever metal you'd like (platinum, 18kt white/yellow/or rose gold, 14kt white/yellow/or rose gold, palladium).
Step 6. Clean-up, set stones and finish: Approximately 2-7 business days, depending on the design of the ring.
This is where a team of jewelers will put the finishing touches on the ring and the true beauty comes to life.
Step 7. Pick-up: This timeline is up to you.
We love this part! An appointment will be set for you to pick up the finished piece. We'll go over warranty details and finalize payment.
Step 8. You’re engaged! Congrats!
We encourage our couples to come in post-engagement so we can go over cleaning and maintenance together.
