Is Designing a Custom Ring the Right Choice For You?
More and more these days, couples are opting to have custom bridal jewelry made, instead of buying a piece from the case. Not sure exactly what that entails and if it’s the right choice for you?
Here are some benefits of purchasing custom jewelry:
You want custom but assume it’s not in your price range. Think again! By becoming the designer yourself, you cut out the middleman. There’s only a small charge for the CAD design; often less than 10% of the final price. You set the budget that you’re comfortable with, and we make a ring to fit that budget. Another way to save is to purchase the engagement ring and band at the same time. The price for CAD can be lower when designing the two pieces together, and you can lock in your price before metal and stone values continue to rise.
You will never see another person wearing your ring. Nobody wants to hear, “My sister-in-law’s engagement set looks just like that!” Your jewelry should reflect your personal style, so what better way to get a piece that represents you and your significant other?
You’ve found pictures of styles you like online and in magazines, but nothing that screamed, “That’s the one!” If it didn’t make your heart skip a beat, then it wasn’t your ring. If you’ve found one that’s close, we can start with that design and change it until it’s perfect. Like a setting but prefer a princess cut instead of a round? We can make that. Love that diamond halo but wish it was in rose gold? We can make that, too!
You’ve tried on countless styles and nothing matches what you have in your head. Then let’s start from scratch! Describe your perfect ring and we’ll sketch a picture in front of you. From there, we’ll have a computer-aided design (CAD) rendering created, where you can make changes before the piece is cast. You get to be involved in every step of the process.
You already have your engagement ring, but can’t find a band that looks good next to it. Many rings are sold as a set but if yours doesn’t already have a band, we can design one for you. If you want a curved style that sits snugly against your engagement ring, you’re probably going to have a hard time finding something that fits perfectly. We can make a wedding band that matches your ring so well, it will look like they were made at the same time.
You get to be specific about your diamond quality. It’s important that your center stone matches the color and clarity of the other diamonds in your ring. Because this is a one-of-a-kind creation, the stones are hand picked to match each other and your center diamond. If you want, you can even see your gems loose, before they’re set into your ring.
You can be confident about the quality of your ring. We want to make bridal jewelry that you’ll be able to pass down for generations. Because you’re so involved in making your ring, we get your stamp of approval on every step along the way. We have trusted, long-term relationships with our stone dealers and CAD designers, and Danny, our talented and detail-oriented bench jeweler who has been with us for almost a decade.
If you decide that designing a custom piece of jewelry is right for you, then we have the tools to make the piece you’ve always dreamed of. It will be the style and quality you want for the price that’s right for you. We’re confident that our service, design expertise, and product quality will make you a customer for life.
