OUR CUSTOM ENGAGEMENT RING PROCESS

 

Tell Your Story

Your engagement ring should be as distinct as your union and the design process begins with your love story. I want to learn how you met, treasured memories, and places you’ve traveled. How you live your lives together will inspire me the beginnings of the design. Each custom engagement ring is an intimate, creative alliance between myself and the couple- even if only one of you is a part of the design process. 

The Design Process Begins

The creation of a custom engagement ring is an experiential, collaborative effort. If the ring is going to be a surprise, I get to know your loved ones through your eyes. Our design is based on your partner’s personality- the artists they like, music they love, favorite haunts, and all the detail that brought you to this moment.

The Stone

The center of the ring and heart of our design- whether it be a traditional approach or more modern selection- we will help you choose the perfect match for your loved one's tiny sculpture. With the custom engagement ring process we have the freedom to either source a stone together or you are welcomed to provide a previously selected one, such as a family heirloom.

Thoughts Become Treasure

Through sketching, we take all our ideas and translate them into a truly distinct ring design. We’ll go through drafts together, make changes, and perfect the design so that the ring will be as magical as the moment you present it.

Getting engaged is one of those moments in life you never forget, and it is a story that will be told throughout your lives together. The ring will be the object that reminds you of that. Some have used our sketches as part of their engagement gift- a keepsake of the very intimate and loving process. 

Tiny Architecture

An engagement ring is a tiny architectural object living on your partner’s hand. And like the best architecture, there needs to be a subtle marriage of form and function, style, and substance. In order to become a fluid part of their life, the ring has to fit their lifestyle. This is greatly considered throughout the design process.

 

Technology Meets Artisanal Craftsmanship

My designs marry cutting edge technology with artisanal craftsmanship. After we decide on a sketch we love, the next step is digital rendering, 3D printing and casting, pairing the old world with the new. Our artisanal hand-set and finish every ring with the highest regard for precision- down to .01mm of detail- each surface, curve, and angle is intentional. 

The Moment and Life Beyond

Once the ring leaves our studio the rest is up to you.
The jewelry is now living life with 
you and your partner- wherever in the world that may be.

Like all precious objects, care is key. You are always welcomed to come to us for annual cleanings and we are happy to help with any other future needs.
