When you propose to the love of your life, you want the moment to be memorable. You also want to give them an engagement ring that they’ll fall in love with. After all, they’ll be wearing this ring every day for the rest of their life. The best way to ensure that you buy an engagement ring that your partner loves is to choose a custom engagement ring.
A custom-designed engagement ring is a truly one of a kind gift that represents you and your love. It’s straight from the heart and can be designed with your partner’s specific tastes and style in mind.
The Custom Engagement Ring Process
When you come in to purchase a custom engagement ring from our Toronto location, the process begins by creating a visionary sketch. At this step, you sit down with one of our design specialists and discuss the type of ring that you’re interested in. This is when you discuss your vision for the ring and talk about how you picture the ring in your mind.
This initial discussion usually takes about 15 or 20 minutes and the result is a visionary sketch of your ring so you can see what it will look like once it has been created.
This initial sketch is then taken to a computer-assisted designer. He or she will discuss the symmetry and measurements of the ring. This is done to make sure that the final design is not just visually appealing, but that it is also practical. For instance, once the design is rendered on the computer, it may become obvious that the height of the diamond setting is a concern. This can easily be modified so that the finished product is beautiful and wearable.
During the computer-assisted design process, you really begin to see your creation come to life. Once the design is approved on the computer, a three-dimensional model is created, usually with a 3D printer. This allows you to see what your design will look like in real life. With the 3D model, you are able to see what you have created in the real world. If you would like any changes at this point, they can be completed and a new model can be crafted if necessary.
Once you approve the 3D model, the casting process can take place. During this step, the design is casted in the precious metal that you desire (such as white cold, yellow gold, or platinum). The artisan will then polish and assemble the ring. Once the ring is casted and polished, and the designer is completely satisfied with its quality and craftsmanship, the next step is to set the diamonds and any other precious stones that will be a part of the ring.
The diamond setter uses precise calculations, knowledge, and experience to properly set the stones, enhancing the beauty and brilliance of your custom engagement ring. After the setting is complete, the ring is polished once more. It is then finished, inspected, and finally approved by our quality control team.
The Benefits of a Custom Engagement Ring
There are many reasons why choosing a custom engagement ring is a good idea. The first is because you will end up with a ring that is completely unique and original. Your relationship and your love is one of a kind. There is nothing else like it in this world. Therefore, it makes sense that you’ll want a ring that is also completely unique. By creating a custom engagement ring in our Toronto studio, you are giving your loved one a ring that is as special as they are.
Another great reason to choose a custom engagement ring is because you’ll be able to create a ring that matches your future spouse’s personality and style. While there are thousands of different engagement rings out there, at a wide variety of price ranges, it still might be difficult to find one that suits your loved one. When you create a custom engagement ring, you solve this problem.
Keep in mind that not all jewelers will offer custom engagement ring design services. If this is a service that interests you, be sure to confirm with your jeweler that they provide this service.
