Our jewellery experts will work with you to arrange a quote, considering the precious metal type and any diamonds and gemstones you may include.
Step 2: CAD Development
Once you are happy with the design and price, we will create a computerised (CAD) model of your engagement ring. At this stage our experts will liaise with you and make any desired modifications. During this stage of the bespoke engagement ring process, clients can experiment with their design and see their bespoke engagement ring in different precious metals, settings and gemstone varieties. Our jewellery specialists will help you develop your design and find the right shape and size of diamonds or gemstones for your setting. To create the highest quality and most stunning bespoke engagement rings, at Steven Stone we use the latest design software and bespoke machinery.
Step 3: 3D Wax Print
Only when you are completely satisfied with the design, we begin the process of creating a physical 3D printed wax model of your piece of jewellery. Once printed, the wax engagement ring models are attached to a tree-like arrangement. Lighter rings are placed on the top and heavier rings lower down on the casting tree. The next step of wax printing is placing the wax models into a casting flask and filling it with investment solution.
Step 4: Casting
The final process is casting the design in metal. After the solution has set into the casting flask, it is placed in a furnace. The wax burns away and leaves a reverse mould, which is filled with precious metals. The casting of gold and platinum alloys takes place in a vacuum pressure casting machine, where the metal is heated to over 1000 degrees Celsius. Each alloy has a different melting temperature depending on its density and material. When the precious metals have cooled, the rings or jewellery pieces are cleaned and sent off for hallmarking. To find our more information on the casting process, visit our manufacturing page.
Step 5: Quality Control
In the final step, your bespoke engagement ring is handed to our in-house master jewellers for the diamonds or gemstones to be set. Once ready, the engagement ring is meticulously checked by our goldsmith, the quality control team and your personal order manager. After we ensure the custom made engagement ring is in perfect condition, we polish it and prepare it for secure shipping or in-store collection.
