As a leading custom jewellery maker in Toronto, Engage Diamond Studio has extensive experience walking customers through the entire process of custom ring design. We have found that many of our customers come to see us without any real knowledge of the custom jewellery making process; they leave with a genuine appreciation of what goes into a high-quality, cherished ring.
Perhaps you have been thinking about purchasing a custom wedding, engagement or anniversary ring. However, maybe your lack of knowledge leads you to believe that custom jewellery design is beyond your budget or incapable of providing that truly special piece you are looking for. If so, we would like the opportunity to set your mind at ease. Here are four things you might not know about custom ring design:
1. It’s Affordable
First and foremost, designing and purchasing a custom piece of jewellery is very affordable. We know that runs counter to everything our culture has taught us about customization, but it is true in the jewellery business. Even with the added time and effort of custom ring design, we are able to keep the cost comparable to off-the-shelf jewellery because we do not have the overhead expenses built into retail prices. In some cases, a custom-designed piece can actually cost less.
2. It’s Fast
There is a common misconception among consumers that delivering a piece of custom jewellery takes a long time. It really doesn’t. From the time we first sit down to the day your custom ring is on your finger is usually only a matter of weeks. Furthermore, we can involve you in the design process every step of the way. We want as little or as much input as you are willing to give. Once we have your design settled, it only takes a few weeks for our expert jewellery makers to create your personal work of art.
3. It’s Fun
Not that having fun is the most important component of custom ring design, but you will enjoy the process nonetheless. It starts by sitting down with one of our jewellery designers so that we can get an idea of what you are looking for. We will ask many questions intended to help us understand your personality, your likes and dislikes, and exactly what you are looking for in a custom ring. It has been our experience that this interview process generally involves a lot of smiles, a few laughs here and there, and maybe some new discoveries about oneself.
4. It’s Local
There are a lot of advantages to going with custom ring design from a company such as Engage Diamond Studio. Nevertheless, at the top of the list is the fact that all of the design and creation is handled locally. Unlike off-the-shelf jewellery that could be produced just about anywhere, any custom piece you purchase from our Toronto studio is designed and created right here. We believe this is important in order for us to maintain good relationships with our customers and the ability to make adjustments and alterations without having to send a piece of jewellery away to another manufacturer.
If you have been apprehensive about custom ring design for any reason, we hope we have been able to alleviate some of your fears through this post. Rest assured that we believe in the benefits of custom jewellery design and manufacturing for our clients here in Toronto and beyond. We would be more than happy to meet with you to discuss a custom-made piece of jewellery for you, or that special loved one who deserves nothing but the best.
