With so many custom design jewelry stores to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start when looking for custom designed rings, so whether you are looking for a specific type of stone or a certain style of setting, we have the information you need!
Here are some frequently asked questions about custom designed rings.
How is a custom designed ring made?
Each ring is crafted one at a time with the utmost attention to detail. Accomplished bench jewelers hand polish the metal with a four step process, preparing the piece of jewelry for the stone setting. Each stone is set by hand in precious metals such as 18 karat gold or platinum for their settings; these are durable, valuable materials which give each piece of jewelry longevity and heirloom.
Is it expensive to have a ring custom made?
That depends on your choices. The cost of a custom designed ring is determined by the number and size of stones you want in your ring. Gemstones such as diamonds will be more expensive than colored gemstones like sapphires or rubies. If you’re looking for something that’s both elegant and affordable, you might consider pairing smaller gems with the center diamond.
Can I have a custom designed ring made from family gemstones?
In most cases, we can creatively incorporate our client’s sentimental pieces in their custom designed rings. A family heirloom or a stone from an original engagement ring are great options for including special meaning with your ring as long as they’re not too small or fragile and the stones are in good condition with no cracks or chips.
What are the benefits of a custom designed ring?
The benefits of a ring that has been made specifically for you are numerous. We offer a diverse array of custom designed rings, from engagement rings to wedding bands and even anniversary rings, so you can get the specific style and finish you want without sacrificing on quality!
Why should I have a custom designed engagement ring?
A custom designed ring is created just for the individual who will wear it, so whether you’re looking for a special engagement ring or anniversary band, we can have a unique piece of jewelry made just for the lucky recipient! The benefit to having an individual piece of jewelry like this is that it’s designed specifically to fit your lifestyle and personal preferences. It’s your unique style, in a beautiful piece of jewelry.
How long does it generally take to create a custom designed ring?
The average turnaround time for a custom ring is two to six months, but this can vary depending on the complexity of the design.
Can a jeweler copy another ring?
Generally speaking, jewelers will not copy another ring design because it can lead to copyright infringement unless you lost your original ring and have a copy the jeweler can use.
How should I clean my custom design ring?
One of the most important things when it comes to cleaning your jewelry is to have a proper home for it. The best way to clean your ring is with warm water and mild soap or detergent. After you’ve cleaned your ring, dry it off with a towel and put the jewelry back into its designated space. You may also use an ultrasonic cleaner designed specifically for jewelry if you have one available to care this way instead of soaking in water.
