With Holidays just around the corner, where engagements abound, we’ve teamed up with Timeless Designs and Cly Creation Photography to bring you a Lovely guide to all that sparkles and a behind the scenes look into how these breathtaking engagement rings are made!
First, a little background. Timeless Designs is a fine jewelry manufacturer based in the heart of New York’s diamond District that specializes in engagement and wedding bands. Their rings are all handmade and completely customizable. We got a first hand look at just what goes into making these beauties, and here’s what we found:
Each ring starts with the customer, that’s you! Once you determine the style of ring that you love, Timeless Designs can then make the same ring ten different ways, customizing the side stones and diamonds to your preference. Customers are given countless options. One customer added their initials to the side of the ring, while another sent in a photograph of a design element that they loved, and it was incorporated it into the ring for them. Gentlemen, this comes in handy when you can’t find exactly what you’re looking or. Timeless can make it for you!
After customers specify what they want, the CAD designers work on bringing it to life by drawing out the ring in a sketch. From there, the ring is then transformed from sketch to reality and made into a wax form. The wax form is then sent to the casting company to be cast and then finally returned back to Timeless Designs where it gets sized, has the stones chosen and placed into the ring, and gets engravings.
The final steps are a polish, cleaning, and quality control to ensure that each ring leaves the shop just how the customer wanted and, with a sparkle that will catch anyone’s eye!
