Design Your Own Ring

Step
1

step-1Come to our offices on Baggot street and if you have images or any supporting material for your design such as photos or magazines, bring it with you so we can get an idea of what you wish to achieve.

We will show you an assortment of ideas and rings to help you understand the various settings and give you some ideas that you may not have thought of. We will walk you through the different band width also and try on many of our hundreds of live settings to ascertain what you feel looks best.

step-2We will have our CAD designer design the ring for you with the latest Computer Aided Design technology. An Image will be provided for your approval before we commence to build the ring. We can tweak designs and insert the tiniest details before commencing to build the ring.

step-3step-3bA wax cast or print of the ring will be constructed using a specialized jewellery printer. The next step is to make a mold from this wax model and often many wax molds are grouped together on a tree and prepared for casting. This tree will then be covered in a plaster and baked overnight. The wax melts when it reaches a certain temperature and what is left is a mould for casting the various parts of your ring. The molten metal of your choice is then cast into the plaster mold to produce the parts required.

step-4step-4bAfter casting and cooling the various precious metal parts are cleaned and assembled and receive a first series of cleaning and polishing to prepare the ring to be set with the precious stones. Stones are set into the mount with an accuracy of .01mm. We insure that all the stones are of uniform quality in colour and clarity to give a uniform look to the finished ring.

step-5step-5bAfter the diamonds or precious stones are set into the mount the ring is then ready for its final polishing or plating if this is required. We use several different grades of buffers and polishing brushes to be able to access every part and surface of the ring. The result is a gleaming ring with bright shining surfaces.
