Each one of our couples mean the world to us, we are so excited to see where their journey takes them. This is an outline of the general process for creating a bespoke commission with us, we hope it helps inspire and inform you.
The first step to getting your bespoke ring made is to book a consultation with us. You can come into our studio where you’ll see where we will be making your ring or we can have a zoom call if getting here isn’t easy. We work around you 100% of the time.
At the consultation we’ll discuss any ideas you might have and we can offer some suggestions we think would work. If you want to incorporate any stones or gold you already have, bring it along if you are coming in to see us. We will also have a selection of one-of-a-kind rings at our studio that you can come to see or try on if it’s a joint design process.
Within a week, we’ll create and send you 3 sketches based on the designs that you’d like to see, along with an estimated cost for each design. Once you’ve received the sketches, you can ask any questions about the design or make any changes. This is where its good to know the ring size you need or a rough idea (ask us if you want some tips on how to find out)
Once you’re happy with the sketches, you place a £400 non-refundable deposit that will be subtracted from the total. Then we’ll create up to 3 detailed 3D renders of the designs you love so you can see exactly how each ring looks from different angles and have a really clear idea of how it will look once we’ve made it. This is where we give you the exact cost for each design because it’s at this point we know how much gold we need to use to make your dream ring.
You choose your favourite design and we’ll send you a payment link. After we’ve received payment, we start to make your ring which usually takes 4-6 weeks. We will keep you updated every step of the way and once made, we will send it to you in a beautiful handmade glass ring box or you can collect if you prefer.
This is where the exciting part happens, the proposal….We’re sure the ring will be PERFECT but if you need to make the ring bigger or smaller just get in touch as we offer one complementary resize. Rings look their best if they’re only resized to a maximum of 2.5 sizes so the proportions look correct (so putting the work in at the beginning to find a rough size pays off). You can see our ring sizing guide or our tips on how to figure out your partners ring size.
If you would like to get some inspiration or book a consultation to talk through the options we would love to hear from you.
