Don't know your ring size?
No problem, I can mail you a set of ring gauges prior to casting the ring setting. This step happens after the
custom order has been paid for. Alternatively, I can offer you a set of steel ring gauges prior to committing to a ring with a refundable deposit, contact me for more details.
Can't visualize what your selected stone will look like in your selected setting?
I'm happy to make a to-scale design mockup to help you visualize what it will look like on hand. If it is a quick design project I usually offer this for free, however if it requires a substantial amount of time designing in CAD I will request a deposit beforehand. Feel free to reach out for more details.
Don't see a design you like from my settings portfolio?
Feel free to reach out with a drawing, sketch or screenshot of a concept you like or try to describe the type of setting you are looking for. Below are examples of a few custom projects.
All Montana Sapphire Rose Gold Willow Ring Set
Montana Sapphire Platinum Bezel Ring Set
Tanzanite Yellow Gold Split Band Bezel Ring
Want to try the setting out before its cast in Gold or Platinum?
I do offer a try it on service for most rings prior to casting the ring in gold or platinum. I will mail you a to-size and to-scale 3d printed try-on of the ring setting prior to casting it in gold, silver or platinum to make sure the size and feel is as expected. This service is free for orders over $1500. Under that amount it is an additional $100 dollars. This service is only available bundled with a custom order from me. Reach out to me for details.
Curious about my sourcing?
I do my best to purchase rough gems directly from the source, in many cases though, gems sourced from across the globe can only be purchased from a middle man. All of the material I purchase from my sourcing partners domestic and
abroad are from well documented mining sites around the world, I do my best to list each country of origin and the specific location if the information was available to me at the time of purchase. Most pieces I can pinpoint back to a specific site. Often times uncut gems have a specific appearance and or signature inclusion(s) of a very specific site or region, this is called its geologic fingerprint. Part of my 10 year plan is to book trips to a handful of these sites, document it and make all my purchases directly from the source.
