STEP 1 HAND-DRAWN SKETCH
First, we discuss your piece and work to clarify your vision. This process might include reviewing sketches and samples, exploring photos and prepare hand-drawn and computer drawings of your ideal engagement ring, necklace, bracelet or earrings. We explore whether the style is classical or modern, plain or baroque and work to finalize a perfect hand-drawn realization of your dream piece of jewelry. We will move to Step 2 only when you are completely satisfied with the final.
STEP 2 CAD DESIGNS
Next, our gifted computer-aided design (CAD) department gets to work, creating a custom layout to the exact specifications of your sketch. This will result in a unique CAD rendering of your design. We will sit down together to review every aspect of the computer drawing and ensure it matches your original concept and expectations. Once you are satisfied, we will move into the final and most exciting stage.
STEP 3 FINISHED DESIGN
The CAD design is then sent to the next department where a wax mold is printed. This typically takes 1-2 days. Once the wax mold is completed, the next step is casting in either gold or platinum. The final casting is cleaned and prepared for stone setting. Our stone selecting team carefully selects every diamond and gemstone, making sure that each stone is in no way damaged and is a perfect fit. Each stone is set by hand, and the prongs are finally tipped, to complete the product. Your custom design item is hand polished and rhodium plated before being passed to quality control where it is carefully inspected for any flaws, scratches and other quality issues. Finally, we are ready to deliver your special custom piece. Usually the custom design process from concept to delivery takes 15-20 business days.
