Why Use a Custom Ring Designer?
For many people their Jewelry rings are very personal to them. You may be remembering your wedding or an anniversary. Perhaps you want to show allegiance to a club or a cause or a religion. Whatever the reason, when you wear a ring it is often more than just a pretty shiny decoration for the finger. But how do you get that completely personalized ring that is the perfect design just for you? That is where you need a custom ring designer.
At Regnas Jewelry we have been making people’s dream rings a reality for over a decade. It is our great pleasure to work closely with our customers to achieve the best possible rendition of their ring design. However there are some practical decisions to be made.
Things to consider before completing the Custom Ring Designer form
First and foremost – have you actually thought closely about your design? Will it work?
Do you have enough space for the designs?
These designs are either on the face or the chassis of the ring? The overall size of your custom ring design must take into account the hand that wears it. If there is enough room on the ring to add the design, is the size suitable for the wearer? Customers are often tempted to design rings that would need to be too big to wear comfortably. We make rings from around 14mm to over 30mm. Shapes include oval, square, rectangular, round and even shield shapes.
It is also possible to include sculpted shapes such as a frog or a completely custom and random design. We like to say that we will have a go at just about anything but we have to consider what size of ring is suitable both for the design and the wearer.
What materials have you chosen for your custom ring?
We specialize in engraving to various stones both intaglio, into the stone, and sculpted from the stone. However not all stones are the same. As you will see in more detail on our custom ring designer page, some stones are harder and can take more intricate engraving. These are all natural stones so they have natural cracks and inclusions in them. We have many occasions when we crack a stone during the engraving. However we always keep going until we end up with the perfect result.
Gold or Gold Plated Silver?
Did you choose gold for your ring chassis? Of course gold has been the favourite choice for ring designs for centuries. However not all gold is the same. The higher the Karat value the purer the gold but also the softer the metal. Many custom rings will become heirloom pieces to be handed down through the generations. A 14 kt gold piece will have a much better chance of surviving.
Of course we all love gold. However when we create with gold we acknowledge that it will require a serious increase in our budget. In our custom ring designer we have included gold plating as an option. This really helps save on costs and has the exact same look as gold. We plate to sterling silver .925 and this makes a long lasting and strong ring chassis. However if the ring is worn under harsher conditions the gold will eventually wear off.
You can re-plate the ring but that might require the removal of the stone first. Some jewelers will be nervous of offering that service for fear of breaking the stone. If you do get stuck you can always get in touch with us. We can rebuild and re-plate the ring. Additionally you might find that you actually like the look of a worn ring. They sometimes develop quite a new and unique character over the years.
You might also want to consider matching the color of the chassis with the stone. A Sterling Silver chassis will look great with a number of stones. Naturally choosing sterling silver can save on costs but it can also enhance some designs. Never rule out a solid sterling silver chassis for your custom ring.
How to choose the best custom ring designer?
In a word reviews. There is nothing better than seeing what other customers have to say about a custom ring designer. Did they take the time to get your design correct? Did they give you a realistic timeframe to complete the job? Was the communication easy and fast? Did they explain all the possibilities as well as the impossibilities of your design? Your first line of communication will be with our chief designer. He gets excited every time a new design comes in. Having someone with his enthusiasm and love of Jewelry is a real bonus. Add to that the fact that he has been working on custom ring designs for many years. You get all of that experience helping you to refine your ring design to perfection.
