Hand Engraved Engagement Ring

From thought to finished product, we can create any design imaginable. Engagement rings,  like this hand engraved diamond and sapphire ring, are just one of the possibilities. We work with you every step of the way. Depending on the job, your piece will either be computer designed, or hand carved. Computer design affords us the benefit of making changes before the point of no return. As you can see in the 3D render of this ring, at the beginning the stones had deep, U shaped cut outs under each of them. Since the engraving was to be the major focal point of the ring, beyond the stones, the customer and I decided it would be better to bring the metal all the way up to the stones. With computer rendering, the fix was easy to make. In the end it worked out nicely. Custom jewelry design is our passion. We love our work, and it will show in the piece we make you.

Ten karat gold is 10 parts gold and 14 parts alloy, and so on. The alloys that are added to gold to strengthen them, also impart some undesirable properties, the most important being metal memory. Metal memory means that a metal will always try to return to its original shape. This is especially problematic with settings made of white gold, that use prongs to hold the stones. The prongs will try to slowly straighten themselves out over time. This means that the stones will eventually become loose. This is not as much of a problem with other types of stone settings, like channel, pave, and flush. We would recommend having any piece of jewelry, with stones set in white or yellow gold, to to have the stones checked for tightness periodically, by a competent jeweler with extensive jewelry repair knowledge.
