Engagement rings hold vast importance by their very nature. They are often the most important piece of jewelry an individual will ever wear. Instead of settling for an engagement ring that doesn’t quite fit what you have in mind, why not customize your very own? If you’re looking for custom engagement rings, Alberta Diamond Exchange would love to help! We’ve outlined exactly what goes into our ring customization process so you’ll know just what to expect.
Step 1: It All Starts With A Design
When you book your appointment with an Alberta Diamond Exchange jewelry expert, you’ll be able to create a custom engagement ring that will perfectly express your fiance’s personality. Our trained staff member will discuss design ideas with you and learn about what kind of look you’re seeking. This is your opportunity to bring as many ideas, pictures, and anything else you may have in mind to the table. Whether you know a lot about jewelry or you’re a novice, our staff will happily guide you throughout the design process. An engagement ring is much more than a ring and a diamond. Since you’ll be able to customize every aspect of the ring, we’ll provide a wealth of information about diamonds, gemstones, and metals. With all this information, your dream ring will come to fruition. The design process takes around 30 minutes to an hour. At the end of this step, you will have decided on your engagement ring’s metal and stones.
Step 2: Time To Create a Wax Representation of Your Dream Ring
Now that all the details are in order, we’ll begin to form your ideas into something tangible. Before the finished product can be created, we’ll produce a wax prototype of your custom engagement ring. Crafting the wax prototype takes around one to two weeks. Having a tangible representation of your future ring will give you the ability to take a close look at the dimensions and how it will look in real life. Wax moldings are easier to change, so if you find anything that needs altering, we’ll be able to fix it in no time.
Step 3: Your Vision Becomes the Final Product
As soon as you have approved the wax prototype, we will get to work on your custom engagement ring! This process begins starts by casting the wax to the metal of your choice along with the stones, textures, and everything else you’ve hand-picked. This step takes around one to two weeks. Before long, you’ll have a ring made to your exact specifications! If you’re ready to turn your dreams into reality, contact Alberta Diamond Exchange today.
