Setting stones in championship rings

“Be like a diamond; precious and rare, not like a stone that is found everywhere,” Ritu Ghatourey. This quote epitomizes what you’ll find at Uptown Diamond.  From their unique custom pieces, to their in house process, and under the radar location, Uptown Diamond is truly one-of-a-kind.

Uptown Diamond makes all your jewelry dreams come true. With projects ranging from $1,000 to so many 0’s you’ll gasp, there is nothing they cannot do. Whether that is creating the engagement ring of your dreams, your husband’s wedding band, or repurposeing some of your grandmother’s cherished jewels, they give every project (and client) 100%.

Even better, everything is done on location – from start to finish. I talked briefly about their “hands on” process in this post last month. From the moment you walk in, you are able to customize your piece to your exact specifications. You don’t have to settle for something you “kind of like”, like other jewelry stores. Instead, you get jewelry that’s as unique as you.
Once you have shared your vision for your piece, it is ready to be designed and created! You will get to see, and be a part of every step of the process. Unlike other jewelers that send their pieces out to a third party to be manufactured and created, Uptown Diamond has all the state of the art equipment in their showroom.

Some of this equipment includes two 3D printers that create an accurate rendering of what your piece will look like. Once that’s complete you can tweak whatever doesn’t suit your fancy. Want it bigger, need it smaller, or want the stone or placement to be different? Done.
From there, a wax casting is made of your piece to truly make it come to life. These wax castings are incredibly delicate, and give you an accurate portrayal of what the piece will look like (see the wax castings of the rings below).

They also have expert craftsmen on hand at all times. The designer’s expertise includes diamond setting, designing, wax casting, and finishing expert, which is my favorite because that’s what gives it that sparkle and shine.
I got the chance to see them setting the diamonds in some championship rings while I was there – the patience and skill set blew my mind (not to talk about the size and grandeur of those rings!!!).

There’s no better gift then jewelry. Whether it’s to say I love you, a cherished memory, or a gift to yourself, jewelry undoubtedly is one of our most precious possessions. Jewelry is also the gift that keeps giving, since often times it is passed down from generation to generation.
With Christmas and Valentine’s Day just around the corner, look no further then Uptown Diamond.
Uptown Diamond is an unparalleled force to be reckoned with in the diamond industry. They’ve done it all – championship rings, bedazzled drumsticks, engagement rings and more. Let them help you turn your dreams into a reality and schedule your appointment now.
