November 27 , 2017 | Written by: Riko Specogna

If you’re getting ready to propose, you want a special ring to symbolize your love. A custom ring is something unique that you’ll both be able to cherish for years to come. But the creation process takes more time than simply walking into a jewelry store and picking out a ring. Plan ahead and give yourself enough time to get the perfect ring with this timeline for creating a custom engagement ring.

Share Your Story with a Calgary Jewelry Maker

The custom ring process begins with your story. Gather ideas you like, pictures or sketches of rings, and a budget range, then contact a Calgary jewelry maker to set up an appointment. During the appointment, you’ll share your ideas and inspirations and the jeweler will use their expertise to help you design a beautiful custom ring.

Get a Sneak Peak and Quote for Engagement Rings

Before placing your order, you’ll get a preview of what the finished ring will look like. This is often done through 3D rendering to give you a good idea of the final product. A wax model is also an option and is usually ready in about a week. After you’re satisfied with the design, you’ll receive a quote and can order your custom engagement ring.

Wait for Your Custom Engagement Ring

Once you’ve placed an order, all you need to do is wait while the Calgary jewelry maker creates your special piece. It usually takes about 3-6 weeks to complete engagement rings, although you may be able to place a rush order. You’ll be contacted when the ring is ready and can pick up your stunning new piece.

Custom engagement rings are a beautiful expression of a couple’s love and relationship. By planning ahead, you can propose to your partner with a stunning custom ring.

Tips for taking care of your diamond engagement ring
October 24 , 2017 | Written by: Riko Specogna

It’s hard not to stare at the beautiful sparkle of your new engagement ring. Keeping it sparkly and in good condition for years to come isn’t difficult, but it does require some care. Here are six tips for taking care of your diamond engagement ring.

Purchase Insurance for Your Diamond Engagement Ring

Insurance protects your investment in case your ring is stolen, lost, or damaged. Have your custom jewelry appraised as the cost of diamonds and precious metals rises, about every five years is a good idea.

Don’t Take Off Wedding Rings in Public

When washing your hands in a public restroom, don’t take off your ring. It might slip down the drain or get left on the ledge.

Keep Your Custom Engagement Ring Clean

Keeping your diamond engagement ring clean is good for it and helps it continue to sparkle, but don’t use random household cleaners on it. For home cleaning, mix a few drops of mild dish detergent with warm water, let the ring soak, then gently clean it with a soft toothbrush and rinse in warm water. Never clean your ring over a drain. Have rings professionally cleaned occasionally.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Harsh chemicals, like bleach and other cleaning products, can damage your wedding rings. Remove rings when you need to use harsh products.

Schedule Regular Maintenance for Custom Jewelry

Visit a jeweler for a maintenance visit once or twice a year to keep custom jewelry in good condition. They can discover and repair potential problems early, before your diamond falls out due to a bent prong.

Store Jewelry Properly

When not wearing your engagement ring, store it in a clean, dry place where it won’t rub against other pieces of jewelry, like a small fabric-lined jewelry box.

Keep your wedding rings looking gorgeous by following these simple tips.
