Customize the New Year
2022 has arrived, full of hope and promise. With a new year, we look towards the future and imagine how we will accomplish our dreams. Some of us are thinking about proposing to a special someone and embarking on the next chapter in our lives. One of the most exciting parts of the proposal is finding the ring. While there are certainly many options out there, one which many people forget is custom design. It’s the perfect way to guarantee that you will get her the ring she truly desires. From finding inspiration to revealing the final masterpiece, every part of the custom process at Beré is fun and easy. Let’s take a look at the four steps that will help you create the ring.
1. Dream Up Your Idea
The first step of the custom design process is coming up with ideas for your ring. If you like to draw, you can sketch a few designs yourself. However, one of the best ways is to set up a Pinterest board. This will allow you to collect and show your ideas. You can also come on down to Beré Jewelers and browse through our collections for inspiration.
At this stage, think about what kinds of metal and gemstones you want in your ring, including stones from family heirlooms.
2. Meet Your Designer
Once you have a good idea of what you want your ring to look like, it’s time to meet with an expert Designer at Beré. Your Designer can help finesse your vision by suggesting design elements to compliment your unique vision. From there they’ll use the magic of CAD (Computer-Aided Design) to create a model of your piece. Through the screen you’ll be able to see your ring from all angles and easily make changes.
3. Fine-Tune Your Piece to Perfection
Once you’re happy with the CAD, we’ll create a wax or plastic model. This model of the custom piece will show you all the features, overall size and give you a good idea of what the ring will look and feel like when complete. You can then inspect the finer details and last minute adjustments can be made until your vision is perfected. You’ll return to Beré a few times for revisions.
4. Prepare for the Real Deal
Next comes our favorite stage! After you’ve given your final approval, we will cast and finish your ring, bringing it to life. The lustrous metal will be shined, textured and detailed according to your design. Each gemstone will be meticulously and masterfully set. After a final inspection, we’ll hand over your new one-of-a-kind jewelry.
From concept to completion, your custom ring will take three to four weeks.
