Custom Wedding Rings in Lethbridge at Tompkins Jewellers
It’s always a great idea to book an appointment with one of our design specialists so we have the uninterrupted time to devote to your specific needs.
At this time, if you could provide some pictures of things that you like, we can put words to concrete design ideas. (Often, clients come in with photos from Pinterest, Instagram or the internet). We then get a feel for what direction you wish to go in your custom wedding ring design, be it modern, classical or vintage inspired. If you do not have a design in mind, we have engagement ring and custom jewellery models in the store that you can try on and get inspired by.
It is always a good idea to have some idea of comfort level in terms of your budget as we often get asked for immediate quotes, but as there are so many variables, quoting is full of endless possibilities until we have some concrete parameters.
We then produce either a hand drawn design or one done in a 3D computer program from which we can provide a firm estimate for your custom wedding ring design. This process usually takes a week.
The next step is to find the Diamond or Gemstone of your dreams. We usually have the option of bringing in diamonds and gems for you to view so you can be a part of the whole design process. Choosing a center stone is a very important step, and although we have professionals trained in the art of diamond and gemstone selection, it is an exciting step in the process of custom wedding ring design that you have the option of being a part of. This step also usually takes a week.
Once the center stone has been chosen a wax can be produced that is an exact duplicate of the final product. You get to see it, try it on, and check out all aspects of your design before the final process has begun. This step usually takes a week to 10 days.
Once the wax has been approved, off to casting and finishing it goes. Our master craftsmen will hand set your diamonds or gemstones to produce the highest quality finish. And voila! Your one of a kind masterpiece is complete! The whole process takes about 4 to 6 weeks, with less intricate designs starting at 3 weeks.
