Artwork & Design
There are many ways to get this process started. You can start your design online by clicking the button below where you will be able to send us your initial concept and any sketches you may have. You could also begin the process by sending us an email.
Once the conversation has started, we will connect you to a member of our design team so you can discuss your requirements. This may be accomplished via email, phone, or WhatsApp. During this phase, we will define the details of your jewellery and turn it into a 3D rendering to give you a realistic idea of what your custom piece would look like once it’s finished. We will support you throughout the whole process to make sure your design is being interpreted correctly. We’re always open to feedback and revisions, should the initial designs be anything short of your vision. Typically, a commitment fee is required at this stage in order to provide you with a design.
Our goal is to create your dream jewellery and it all starts here. Whether it’s for a small group of pilots or a graduating class of 5,000 students. For projects involving large groups, such as school rings, we can gladly send a member of our design team to your school or place of business to discuss the specifics and available options.
Once you have approved your 3D design, we will move onto the next part of the process: Tooling, Wax Preparation, Casting, and Finishing.
Tooling is how we make your abstract concept come to life in a physical form. A CNC milling machine cuts a custom dye which is used in the wax preparation phase to produce the designed pattern. Next, these dyes are injected with molten wax to create the eventual negative-space of your design. During the casting phase this wax is melted away and replaced with the metal option you chose, resulting in an incredible and elegant presentation.
This is done after the foundation of the ring has been created by placing the foundation and wax “negative” in a 1200-degree oven for 10 hours. After the cooling process has been completed and your metal option is introduced, the rings are refined where needed and polished into pristine condition. Finally, in the last stage, all the remaining details are put in place. This involves a multitude of grinding, shaping and polishing methods. This is also when the selected precious stone is set in place and, perhaps most significantly, when your personalized engraving is etched into the inside of your ring.
Every effort is made to ensure you receive a perfect finished product. Despite our unwavering faith in the manufacturing process, we thoroughly inspect each ring for flaws or defects throughout the quality control stage, and while errors and defects are uncommon, we take this further step to meet your expectations. Our only goal is to ensure you will be fully satisfied with your purchase.
Hopefully, by this stage, your dream design has become a reality! Your ring will be packaged and shipped to your front door. For additional information on shipping, please see our DELIVERY PAGE.
