This is a great example of how you can take a standard, stock item and customize it to make an affordable, completely unique, one of a kind item just for you.
Our client came to us with a design idea they found. The original design had an antique style with a pink center stone, pave set side diamonds and rose gold accents. It is made from a white metal, probably platinum. Our customer wanted a ring created that incorporated these main elements – and fit into his budget.
Now we’re not certain what the inspirational ring cost but by looking at the size of the baguette side diamonds alone, we figure it must be well into the tens of thousands of dollars. It’s a beautiful piece but more than likely a little out of range for most people.
This is where our semi-custom jewelry design fits in. We were able to take a standard, stock item and customize it to give the look and feel of our customer’s original idea and fit it into his budget.
For this piece we started with a 14kt white gold casting. We set moissanite stones down the sides of the shank and small diamonds on the halo surrounding the center stone. The white gold prongs were replaced with rose gold prongs. We then opened up the side gallery slightly and added rose gold filigree scrolls for a subtle two tone accent. To finish the piece, we set a cushion cut lab grown pink sapphire as the main, center stone.
As for the final verdict from the customer?
“Hi Joe, thanks very much for the fantastic job on Cher’s ring. She absolutely loves it!!!!”
Music to our ears!
