Custom engagement rings are the perfect way to show your future spouse you love them in the most unique was possible. Do you want a custom ring, but you’re not sure how the custom jewelry design process works?

The Design: The very first step in the custom jewelry design process is to brainstorm designs for the ring. There are so many options for custom engagement rings, so you’re going to want to do your research. You will sit down with the designer and discuss what you want. You’ll need to know the cut, clarity, size, stones, and any other elements you want for the ring. The designer will then help you create a basic sketch to give you an idea of what it will look like.

The 3D Image: The next step is the high tech computer image of the sketch. The team will create a 3D image based on the information you gave during the design session. The image will be a realistic representation of what the final product will look like. You will be able to make adjustments to the design is the image does not look the way you desired it to.

The Wax Model:The third step in the process to create a custom ring design is the wax model. After the adjustments are made to the computer image, a physical real size wax model will be constructed of the ring so you can see it and hold it in reality. This is the last chance you have to check accuracy and other design elements to make sure the ring is exactly what you’re picturing.

The Real Thing: The final step is receiving the actual ring. The final piece is constructed based on the wax model. At this point, there are still adjuments that can be made, like size and setting, but it is a little more difficult. At this point, the ring is finished and ready to wear.

Roughly 30 million people had invested in fine jewelry for the year as of spring 2017. You can be one of them, but you’ll probably feel more comfortable once you understand how the custom jewelry design process works. First, you design the ring, then you see a 3D image, then a wax model, and then the final product. This process is the first step in your life journey with the person you love the most, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way.
