Getting the perfect piece of jewellery custom-made for you is an exciting journey. Whether it’s an engagement ring, a necklace, or anything else, you’ve no doubt spent countless hours scouring the net and diamond stores searching for inspiration.
But having a piece of jewellery custom-made isn’t as simple as just walking into a store and buying the first thing that catches your eye.
To further understand what goes into creating the perfect piece of jewellery for each individual, Diamond World Fine Jewellery have given us a look into what exactly is involved in crafting the piece of your dreams. So if you’re thinking about exploring the world of custom design, here’s what you need to know.
What does the consultation involve?
In order to create the perfect unique piece for each person, each consultation involves getting to know what the occasion is, who the piece is for, and the wearer’s personality. Jewellers want to know what a person’s ideal vision is and work closely with them to achieve this. Diamond World will explore a range of options, from size to diamond type, to find the one you prefer. They also have a sketch artist who can create a picture of your desired design so you can have a visual idea of what to expect. This way, the jewellery you choose to create will accurately reflect your style and personality.
How is the diamond style chosen?
Diamond World take care in explaining every detail of the jewel, including design, shape, setting, and metal. As every stone is unique and precious, each piece is carefully analysed, sourced, and crafted. When it comes time to choosing a style, every customer is shown Diamond World’s massive range of rings that are currently in stock and on-trend, as well an iPad for reference to styles on their website.
The 4 Cs of diamonds are extremely important to be aware of, so Diamond World also refer to a GIA Diamond Grading chart to go into further detail on each C – cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight.
Coming in with an idea of what you would like is always useful, and you can draw inspiration from family heirlooms, magazines, and online.
What are the different shapes and settings to choose from?
If you’re looking for an engagement ring, it’s good to know the different options you can choose from. Different styles suit different hand shapes, so being able to try on various rings can help to determine which style and shape looks best on you.
Diamond World have a range of settings and shapes to chose from, so you won’t have to worry about not finding one that suits you. Their shapes include: round, princess, emerald, asscher, cushion, marquise, and pear.
Their range of different settings include: pave, prong (claw), bezel, tension, invisible, channel, illusion, hammer, and halo and their metal range includes the finest in rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, and platinum.
How long does it take?
Creating the perfect piece of jewellery isn’t an overnight job and Diamond World ensures that every piece they make is given the right amount of care and attention. Depending on what design you’re after and how busy that time of year is, the creation process can take anywhere between three days and three weeks.
With extreme care and respect for each precious stone, Diamond World Fine Jewellers can craft a timeless piece of jewellery for you, one which is perfectly tailored to capture your unique style and personality. By getting to know you and your vision, Diamond World will make the custom design experience an exciting journey for you and your partner.
