What to expect when you're expecting… a custom engagement ring.
When it comes to engagement rings, you want to get the most for your budget and the Diamond Daughters are here to help. We will do everything in our power to keep things under your budget while giving you you your dream engagement ring.
We will walk you through the insides of choosing a diamond. We’ll help you find the perfect one for you! We will listen to what you have in mind and design your ring around your preferences.
Step one: CAD (3D Computer Aided Design/Rendering) - We describe your desired ring to our team & with that information we design a computer image! How awesome is that!? You'll get to see the ring from every single angle. In this part of the process we are able to make any changes in the design and size. We make as many changes needed until we feel the ring is perfect.
WOOHOO! Moving on!
Step two: WAX- The final rendering after all the changes is then made of wax. You'll get to actually see your ring- in wax form! This way, our client gets an idea of the exact dimensions and proportions of the ring before moving on to the next step! How amazing is that? To be able to make corrections in between is such a huge benefit. It allows you to feel confident in the process and builds excitement towards the final results. This will obviously lead to engagement ring perfection, duh.
Step three: CAST- Once we approve the wax design, its time for casting. During this process, the metal (gold) is poured into a mold which allows it to harden into the shape of your ring. Once its out of the oven-you'll see an unpolished and unset diamond version your engagement ring- kind of a rough image. So we usually skip showing this part to our clients or they’ll freak out.
Step 4: POLISH & SET- The ring gets polished which gives it a shiny, clean look. The small accent stones as well as center diamond are all set one by one. VOILA! You have an engagement ring!
This entire process is fun and exciting, we will be available to answer all your questions and ease your mind of any doubts or concerns you might have.
