Design

With your vision at hand, our designers will begin to work their magic. The team will sketch and develop concepts for your ring and refine them until it’s perfect. These drawings are then translated into a 3D rendering of your ring.

Review

Once the rendering is complete, we will send you images of the digital 3D ring. Here you’ll see multiple views of the piece; from the front, side, top and at a 3/4 perspective. You can take your time to review the ring, and if there are any changes you need, let us know! We have up to five complimentary revisions included in our process so that the ring you invisioned can truly be made real.

Create

This is the part where your ring comes to life! Upon approval of the 3D design of your ring, we will go straight into production. This process takes roughly 3 weeks and goes through multiple steps; from growing the wax, creating the molding, casting the metal, setting the stones, completing any engravings, to going through quality control.

Custom Design FAQs

What kind of changes can I request in my design revisions?

If changes are needed, please allow 1-3 business days for us to email you the new CAD; you are allowed up to 5 sessions of changes.

Please note, design changes can only be minor aesthetic changes, such as adjusting the basket height, angles of the arms, width of band, etc... If there is additional/less material and labor needed for the design changes, we will adjust the pricing within fair market value.

For all major design changes, such as: shape of stone, size of the stone, or anything that requires complete rebuilding of the ring from ground up, you will be charged for a complete CAD rebuild.

For further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always here to help!

Do I need to pay extra for design changes?

If your design changes are only minor aesthetic changes, such as dropping the basket, adjusting the angles of the ring, the width of the band etc... there are no additional charges for the adjustments. You are allowed up to 5 rounds. Typically, we don't go beyond 3 rounds.

There will be a charge if we need to completely reconstruct the CAD, ie going from a solitaire with no accent stones to a flower designed halo with micropave diamonds. This requires additional resources and time.

How long does the process take?

Our standard turnaround time for custom design process is 4-6 weeks from design to finish. With our Rush Custom Express option (additional charge), the turnaround time can be reduced to 2.5-4 weeks; response time permitting. We want you to see it as bad as you want to see it!

Do I need to live in Chicago to order a custom ring?

Nope! A majority of our custom projects, a fine 80%, are all done via internet. Our team of experts personally discuss all design details with you through email and/or phone consultations. Once all details are collected and finalized, we migrate all specifics into a custom invoice. We are particular about being particular!

What is the average cost for a custom ring?

The starting price for our CAD fee is $75 and up. The custom fee is dependent on the amount of time required for the designing process and CAD build out. Our average price for our custom engagement rings ranges from $1,500-$6,000 USD.

For further assistance, please feel free to reach out. We'd love to walk you through our process!
