3d design custom design engagement ring

We specialize in creating custom jewelry using 3D CAD design. Whether you have a unique idea, sketch, or picture, we can bring it to life in-house. Our services include designing custom engagement rings, recreating lost jewelry, and transforming heirloom pieces into something new. You can visit our store for a free consultation. Once you've chosen a design, we require a deposit to create a 3D model and wax prototype. After your approval, we will cast your piece in metal. The entire custom design process usually takes 2-3 weeks, but complex designs may take up to a month. To contact us with your jewelry design idea, simply fill out our custom design contact form on this page. We'll respond via your preferred communication method, whether it's a text message or email, to discuss the next steps. Your satisfaction is our priority, so we welcome any modifications to the 3D model while we're still in the initial design process. We'll maintain constant communication with you throughout the process to ensure the final product matches your preferences. Whether you visit our store or message us, we're here to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Our custom design process:

We start by creating a 3D design based on your idea, drawing, or inspiration. Next, we 3D-print the computer model into a wax model. The wax model is then burned out in a kiln and cast in metal. We clean the metal, set stones, polish, and clean it. This entire process typically takes 2–3 weeks to complete from start to finish. Custom engagement and wedding rings typically take 2–3 weeks to complete. More complicated or intricate designs, such as bracelets, might take 6–8 weeks to complete.
