    The first stage of designing any item of jewellery is to discuss it's intended purpose. In this case it's an Engagement ring. Decide on a budget so the ring will be designed to match this. Platinum or 9ct White Gold, a diamond with excellent colour or clarity or a larger stone with lower colour or clarity. There are many ways to match the look you are after with the finances you have. You can even use your own gold or stones.

    Once a design and budget has been established, I will produce a 3D computer design. This is a great way to see the ring come to life, you get to see it in full scale on your finger. This is the stage where alterations can be made.
  • create band
    Once you are happy with the design we will start to create your dream ring from scratch. The first stage is to melt down the metal and start to create the band.
  • ring polish
    Once the ring has been made, all setting are done and it is given a polish before the stone are set using accuracy and precision.
  • final polish
    The last stage of the process is to give the ring it's final polish. All the scratches will be removed and the ring is cleaned to perfection.
  • Happy couple
    You are presented with your ring. From DESIGN, to CREATION, to INDULGE, you now own a piece of jewellery that you have not only been involved with the design but you have a story and experience to share that you will never forget.
