Our experts at Elite Fine Jewelers will walk you through every step of the way bringing your vision to life.  

  1. Design: The first step is to create a design for the engagement ring. The jeweler and our design specialists will work with you to come up with a design that fits your style and preferences. The design will be sketched on paper during the meeting. 

  2. Wax carving: Once the design is finalized, the jeweler will create a wax model of the ring using a special wax carving tool. This allows you to see what the ring will look like in three dimensions and make any necessary changes before the ring is cast in metal.

  3. Casting: The next step is to cast the ring in metal.  The jeweler will create a mold of the wax model and then use that mold to pour molten metal into it. This creates the basic shape of the ring.

  4. Cleaning and polishing: Once the ring is cast, it will need to be cleaned and polished to remove any imperfections or rough spots. This is typically done by hand, using a variety of tools and techniques to achieve the desired finish. This is when we provide a finish of high polish, satin or brushed.  High polish is the typical finish for engagement rings. 

  5. Diamond setting: Once the ring is cleaned and polished, the diamonds or other gemstones can be set into it. This is usually done by hand, using specialized tools and techniques to ensure that the stones are securely and evenly set.

  6. Finishing: Finally, the ring will be finished with any additional details or embellishments, such as engraving or additional accent stones. It will then be cleaned and polished one final time before being presented to you.

Overall, the process of creating an engagement ring requires a great deal of skill and attention to detail. From the initial design to the finishing touches, every step must be carefully executed to ensure that the final product is a beautiful and durable piece of jewelry that will be cherished for a lifetime.  Give us a call or send us a text at 480-699-6639 to get your custom engagement ring scheduled today.  Learn more about custom jewelry here !
