What You Should Know About Engagement Rings

A little education goes a long way – so we’ve compiled short beginners guides to a few of the most important things you’ll be talking about when designing your engagement ring.

It all starts with a conversation

We begin every design with a discussion of your goals, budget, and time-frame, and the best part is, you can do the entire process online.

Whether you share a Pinterest idea board, already know what you want, or customize a design from our site, you will be designing with experienced, artistic professionals.

By designing and manufacturing everything locally, we ensure extraordinary craftsmanship, unique, nuanced designs and great value.

CAD modeling

Realistic renderings and physical models help transform sketched ideas into reality in an interplay between the client, the designer and the CAD team, all of whose input and ideas help create something that both looks right and fits perfectly.

The entire Fort Thomas project team collaborates on each piece, adding nuanced details and subtle improvements to the design, all while making sure that design cohesiveness, stability on the finger, and stone security are perfected.

Wax Carving & Model Making

If the piece is to be cast, and most are, we then create a wax or Resin master model. We have our own 3-D printers and growers as well as hand wax carvers onsite, to create the perfect blend of artistry and detailed perfection.

Casting

Once the design has been approved, the model is now set for casting. Our caster’s facility is state of the art, with world class equipment and a custom casters’ attention to detail.

Our Galloni platinum and gold casting equipment, some of the finest machines made, allows us to cast each piece perfectly for the best quality control & cost efficiency.

Gemstone Setting

We always hand set each gemstone, detailing all areas to perfection. We sharpen our gravers more often, work under bench microscopes and do all work in house. You are invited to visit and watch our artists work in-person here in our studios. Compare the pictures in our Gallery to see the attention to fine detail & Craftsmanship.

Texture, Finishes and Detailing

The final stage of the production process includes adding textures & finishes. Before quality marking, we double and triple check all details of the design to ensure all instructions have been meticulously followed, the design is well executed and all craftsmanship is top notch.

Time Line

Most projects take about 1-4 weeks in the Design, Cad and Wax stages, and final design approval. Design time varies, but give yourself enough time to enjoy the process, we are confident you’ll enjoy it!
