Art-Deco Inspired Custom Diamond Engagement Ring September 6, 2018 By Crystal Hobbs Every piece of jewelry at Uptown Diamond is custom-created to suit your precise taste. When starting the custom jewelry process we often describe it as a multi-step process. Follow along with our client’s recent experience creating their stunning Art-Deco Inspired Custom Diamond Engagement Ring. STEP 1: Picture Inspiration Uptown Diamond’s Diamond Consultants will often ask you if there are any pictures you would like to use as inspiration. Recently, we had a client send us this photo as inspiration for what would soon become their custom diamond engagement ring. The photo: an oval cut diamond in a yellow gold setting with a diamond halo and art deco detailing. Step 1: Client’s Inspiration Step 2: 3D CAD Artwork Creating the 3D CAD Artwork is more than copying a photo. Your Diamond Consultant gets to know you and your fiance-to-be to ensure we capture just how you in your ring. The more we know about your story helps us become more familiar with your interests and style that will better help our designers create the perfect custom piece. Uptown Diamond’s design team will create a 3D CAD (computer aided drawing) art rendering of the custom design that has been discussed on a CAD computer program. There is no limit to how many times we can recreate the design to ensure the custom piece is exactly what you are looking for. After getting to hear more about this couple, and his bride-to-be, in particular, it was then determined that the ring for her had to be cast in rose gold. Step 2: 3D CAD Artwork for Art-Deco Inspired Custom Diamond Engagement Ring Step 2: 3D CAD Artwork for Art-Deco Inspired Custom Diamond Engagement Ring STEP 3: 3D Wax Print You will approve every last detail of the artwork before we print a 3D wax mold of the setting. Our 3D printers allow you to hold and see what the ring will look like before it is cast and set. Even at this point if there are any details you want to change, we can apply changes to our 3D artwork and reprint! STEP 4: Cast + Set Once the wax model is approved, we CAST! We can cast in white, yellow or rose gold as well as silver or platinum. Our talented jewelers then set the stone(s) of choice in the newly casted setting, move to polish and then its a matter of moments before the custom piece is ready to be proposed with. STEP 5: HAPPILY EVER AFTER! Once the custom piece is ready, your Diamond Consultant will schedule your final visit! We are happy to announce this couple is happily engaged and are on to wedding planning!
