Step 1: It Starts With Your Idea
If you can think of it, Diamond Exchange Houston can create it. The first step is to have an idea of what you would like your ring to look like. Most customers come to us with pictures or a visual description of a ring that they would like to have. We can help you with our input in conjunction with what you have in mind. We are experts at jewelry design and have created 100’s of custom diamond rings for our past clients. With all of our custom jewelry pieces, we have a precise and methodical process that we follow. The first step is always to have a vision of what you want and then we can put a plan into action.
Step 2: Select Your Diamond
Once you have the ring idea the next step is to choose the perfect loose diamond. You want to start with a diamond because all of our custom engagement ring designs revolve around the size and the shape of the center stone. At Diamond Exchange Houston our main goal will be to get you the biggest and nicest diamond for your budget. When you shop with us you will be able to compare several loose diamonds side-by-side. We will educate you on the 4 C’s of each diamond. We offer wholesale diamonds including diamonds that are certified by GIA.
Step 3: CAD Drawing of Your Custom Engagement Ring
Once we have your idea for the custom ring and we have chosen the main diamond, the next step is to create a computer-aided design (CAD) drawing. The ring design is created using 3D software technology around your ideas and the size and the shape of your diamond. With these renderings, you will be able to view your diamond engagement ring from all angles prior to the ring actually being created. Once we have this design we will send it to you for your approval. At this time you will we will able to modify any changes that you may request. An updated version will be sent to you for your approval. Once we get it perfect to your standards we will move on to the next step.
Step 4: Create The Wax And Use The Metal Of Your Choice
After we have created your perfect custom engagement ring with the CAD drawing we will turn it into a wax mold. From there we will create the ring using your metal of choice. We typically use 10k gold, 14k gold, 18k gold, or platinum. You will have the option to see the wax mold before we actually make its metal version. Once the ring is cast it will then go to our jeweler to set the diamonds.
Step 5: Setting The Diamonds
After we have the physical ring made into your choice of metal the next step is to very carefully set the diamonds. Our master jewelers are the best and are kept to very high standards to make sure the stones are set perfectly. Once the diamonds are set the ring goes for the final polishing stages.
Step 6: Your Custom Engagement Ring is Ready For Pickup
Now that the ring has been made, the stones have been set, and the final product has been polished to perfection the next step is to pick it up. Our goal is for Diamond Exchange Houston to be recognized at the best place for custom engagement rings in Houston, TX. We will only be happy if you are 100% satisfied with our products and services.
