Here is a really unique custom engagement ring the Fraser’s came up with. Notice the dimensions of the blue sapphire.
We had to have the stone cut exactly to match the dimensions given by our CAD software to ensure a perfect fit beside the Princess Diamond in the center, and at the same time, to stay within their budget.
Here is the finished product. This 14kt white gold engagement ring turned out awesome. Any other takers?
Mrs.W Wedding Set
Although Mrs. W appreciated her three rings shown here, she wanted to maintain some of the design and proportions, but turn them into two separate rings with a different meaning, yet, holding the same sentiment they shared.
We used our CAD technology and produced these two “Computer Renderings” as shown here. We do this often to ensure both the customer and our own designers are in synch.
In this case, Mrs. W loved what we saw and so we completed the custom rings in 14kt white gold, as shown here.
Mrs. B Diamond Band
Mrs. B loved one of our previous designs we did for another customer, but wished to add her own flair. It was her wish to use the diamonds from her Mother's Rings and incorporate them into a Custom Designed 14kt white gold diamond band, held together with the “Initials” of all her children. This was the Wax reproduction of the ring. We often show this to customers before-hand to ensure it is exactly what they have in mind.
In this case, Mrs. B approved the wax and gave us the go-ahead to complete the ring in 14kt white gold.
Mr. And Mrs.H Engagement Ring
This is an excellent example of seeing just how close our computer renderings are to the real McCoy. Using diamonds from her previous rings, we all came up with this design.
The different color waxes are meaningless for us. It’s the way the computer talks to itself.
Just look how close in reality these two groups of pics are. Here is the diamond engagement ring made in 14kt white gold, the day before they were picked up and taken home.
Cindy Wedding Set
Cindy had some amazing ideas as to what she wanted, but it required a few notes here and there to keep us on track, as we began the designing of this magnificent matching engagement ring and diamond bands.
Notice the large marquis diamond in relationship to the wax. Also, the waxes for both sides of the diamond wedding band are apart here and go together only upon completion.
Here are two different views of the completed matching diamond engagement ring and wedding bands for our customer Cindy.
Mrs. S Engagement Ring
Although Mrs. S had a good idea on paper, we still had to make the wax of the ring first to make sure the stone fit well.
As you can see, this platinum custom engagement ring turned out beautiful.
Barrie Colts Custom
Barrie Colts owner Howie Campbell was proud to have us design and manufacture his custom ring, made in 14kt white gold with bead set and pave diamonds covering the top portion of the ring. But first we had to come up with the basic design he was looking for.
I think you would agree that the Gents Corporate Ring came out perfect. Note the work all around the ring, including the detail on the shoulders along with the raised lettering on top.
Judy's Custom Ring
Judy initially brings her rings in to us to see if there is anything we can do to help her. Apparently, she is continually losing diamonds since she got the ring. The jeweler she purchased it from may have provided good pricing for the rather large Pear Shape diamond along with the many straight baguettes, but the workmanship, the integrity of the setting, had much to be desired. We discussed the flimsy claws along with the poor, plain design and she agreed that a new ring needed to be designed to provide the “BLING” she was looking for. We decided to make just one ring, using as many of the diamonds as possible.
When we showed her this design, which encapsulated all she was looking for in an earlier conversation, she was very excited.
After first approving the wax for this masterpiece, we proceeded with the end result.
And so here, as you can plainly see, was a most wonderfully designed 14kt white gold two in one engagement ring. Judy was thrilled!
Custom Dragon Ring
Clearly, we will customize anything to please our customers. In this case, the gentleman grew up loving dragons his whole life. Incorporating this theme with a Celtic design was tricky.
I think we managed to make the first 14kt, 8mm wide, gent's Dragon Ring with a Celtic theme.
Custom Gent's Ring
Not every man wishes to have an ordinary classic wedding band. This particular gentleman had an initial ring with diamonds in mind. We were able to use raised lettering on the shoulders to depict his name, date and the infinity sign. The computer rendering shown here was a winner.
Here is how the finished product turned out in 14kt white gold.
Change of Plans Custom Design
Often we are handed a picture from a customer who has an idea of what he or she wants, but cannot afford to make it exact. We do our best by altering the design to match both their tastes and budget.
Here is the wax which was approved head over heals by the customer, as we met their expectations of the engagement ring, and then some.
The finished product was simply outstanding and shows the resemblance of the original design.
This customer wanted a unique claw arrangement for her Eternity Band we were making for her. It was her thoughts that the ring should have the “same idea” as her tennis bracelet. So, we borrowed her bracelet for a bit and produced the wax to show her. Needless to say, it was approved and the Eternity Ring was manufactured by us in 14kt white gold.
Mel's Custom Band
Here’s a reversal. Mel comes in with the 14kt white gold pave diamond band and wants us to design and custom make a matching diamond pave engagement ring. Usually it’s the opposite way around. So we produced these waxes for her to approve and then…………
…..as you can see, the end product turned out magnificent. Behold, a designer diamond pave engagement ring and matching band, each made with 14kt white gold.
A Remembrance Story
From a glance, this may not look like much. But for our customer and designer, we knew exactly what it represented and were we still had to go. The customer originally brought in a plaster mold of her deceased dog’s front paw and asked us if there was something we could do with this to memorialize her lost “family member” for eternity.
After much thought and discussion it was decided that we would scale down the size of the paw, take a reverse mold of the mold we were presented with and affix it to a wide bracelet. The material we agreed to use was silver. This picture was our first concept.
We made some decisions on the detail of the paw itself and decided to go with a wider designer open bracelet.
This was the finished product and we are forever grateful to of had the opportunity to produce this emotional keep sake for our good customer.
