THE CUSTOM JEWELRY PROCESS
Here is the step by step process in which we figure out all the information needed to move towards the CONTACT US page. Familiarize yourself with some of the information below before we begin the process of a custom order.
IF YOU CAN DREAM IT......WE WILL MAKE IT.
Step 1 & 2 >
SKETCH AND CAD DESIGN
The first step involves sketches of jewelry which will be done by us free of charge from your ideas . If you already have prepared a sketch, we will use that as a template and refine it to your approval. The sketches or pictures and drawings are submitted to the CAD artist for a render.
The second step involves a computer program. A CAD specialist will animate our sketches. Step 2 is conducted when a sketch is approved, and a CAD render is needed for casting. We use the highest quality programs for our CAD renderings. Once we digitize your custom order, we send you file attachments to your email for immediate approval. Once approved, we move to the wax stage.
Step 3 >
wax printing of design
The Third Step involves the printing of the CAD design. With the latest innovations, we are capable of printing the exact CAD file the customer approves, to a wax form. An integral part of the Custom Order process, the wax design involves printing of a wax model of the ring which has been approved in digital file format by the customer. The wax is identical in all sizes and shapes, and dimensions of the CAD file, and is ready for the final step of casting and finishing.
Step 4 >
casting and finishing
The casting process consists of using the Wax model and engulfing it in protective plaster for baking in a jewelry oven. Once hardened, the jeweler pours precious metals into the plaster in which the metals take the shape of the wax. An expert caster should be able to know the exact time to pour molten metals at the right temperature for the best results. After casting, the final step in the custom process is the finishing. This is where the jeweler sits at his or her bench and begins to fine tune the piece of jewelry, and set the precious diamonds, or moissanites, and color stones needed to finish the product for the customer!
Step 5 >
prep and delivery
The final step is to inspect the ring and prep it to maximum quality control efforts and to present it to the customer. Prep and Quality control consists of an individual that is not the creator of the piece of jewelry, conducting a strict search for possible issues with the piece. Any problems or issues that may be found is quickly correlated to the jeweler for corrections.
Finally, once it has passed the control step, it is presented to the customer.
