Creating a bespoke piece of jewellery is extremely personal. However, nothing is more exciting than seeing something you have imagined come to life. Working closely with a reputable jeweller will make the custom process painless and stress free.
Before you start the design process there are a few things you can do beforehand to make sure you are ready to meet with your jeweller.
Start Planning Ahead of Time
Custom made rings take time to design and make, therefore, you need to make sure you allow plenty of time. If you are wanting a bespoke ring made for a certain occasion make sure you allow anywhere from a few weeks to a month creation time, depending on the complexity of the design and construction.
Consider Your Budget
Generally bespoke rings can cost anywhere from $5,000 upwards. Having a general idea of how much you can spend on your piece will allow your jeweller to provide ideas and suggestions that fit into your price range.
Find a Jeweller
This is where it pays to do your research. Not all jewellers are created equal, therefore, you want to make sure you choose a master jeweller that has plenty of experience in designing bespoke jewellery pieces. Take your time to go through reviews or ask friends and family for recommendations. Taking the time to find the right jeweller will be the difference between receiving a design you like and a design you love.
Gather Your Inspiration
Once you have narrowed down the jeweller you want to design your ring, do some research and gather some inspiration references. This can be anything from pictures in a magazine or pictures you have seen online. This will help your designer get more of an idea of what you are after before they go to the drawing board and create a custom design for you.
Book an Appointment
Book an appointment to meet with your jeweller once you have all of your resources gathered. Taking the time to book an appointment will mean you can sit down with your craftsman and thoroughly discuss exactly what you want. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to talk through ideas and also get new ideas from your jeweller. Keep in mind that your jeweller will be able to provide expert opinions on designs and construction so you can rest assured you will walk away with a truly stunning custom made piece.
Approve the Design
Before going ahead with building your custom piece, your jeweller will provide you with a full sketch or wax model of your ring. This allows you to see everything you discussed in your initial appointment in real life. If you want to make any adjustments or revisions, this is the time to do it. Your jeweller will work with you on any necessary revisions to ensure you are completely happy with the design before moving forward.
