The Ring Making Process

The first step in making a custom engagement ring or wedding band is emailing Tony with a ring design idea that you would like to have manufactured. Things he needs to know are: what metal will be used (sterling silver or gold), how many and what type gemstones will be set in the design and an idea of the ring design itself. The possibilities are endless for the design of your custom made diamond engagement ring or wedding band. Tony can also make anniversary bands or ring guards the compliment your engagement ring.

He will send you a sketch of your ring design, for your approval, before any work begins. Unique custom jewelry is usually sketched on paper and then the design is carved from special wax. The jewelry maker carves each wax model individually, making the finished piece as unique as the person receiving it.

During the wax carving process you will receive pictures of how your custom jewelry is being made. This one-on-one service helps to ensure that you get a very special piece of custom bridal jewelry to treasure for many years to come. After the wax model is made it is destroyed by extreme heat in the casting process. This ancient method of jewelry manufacturing is called "lost wax casting". The How Custom Jewelry is Made page has a detailed discussion, with pictures, of this jewelry making process.
