Custom Process

Step 1

Pop the Question. For now, we’ll do the asking. Who’s the lucky guy or gal? Have they dropped any hints? What do they like? Have any crazy ideas of your own? What’s your budget?

Step 2

The First Draft. With those details in mind, we can help you decide what she wants, and if we're a good fit.  From there, our artists can start sketching design concepts, or you can choose/modify from any of our thousands of mountings we have in store..

Step 3

Finding “The One." Our diamond and gemstone experts will tailor the ultimate selection for you to choose from.  We will provide all the guidance and advice needed to choose the perfect diamond..

Step 4

This Is Getting Real. Our design team creates realistic 3D renderings and a wax model that show exactly how the ring will look. We tweak and tune until we hear you say, “It looks perfect!."

Step 5

To Have and to Hold. Our master jewelers/designers bring your custom design to life.  We stand behind your ring for life with our Diamond Level (the industry's best) Lifetime Care Plan.


We promise our customers won’t find a better value when it comes to quality, service and warranty anywhere - we guarantee it.
