Designing a unique ring for his fiancée
In the case of this ring project, our client was the mastermind of the project and knew exactly what he wanted. During weeks he had made his homework studying his fiancée’s jewelry preferences to define the stones for the project and the ring design that she would sure like.
He came to us with this ring design on paper:

The ring is made of a unique shank set with a main 4 millimeters large diamond shouldered by two emerald stones 3 millimeters large and 6 peridot gemstones 2 millimeters large.
The shank will be made of 18-karat white gold.
With this unique ring design idea so clearly detailed by the fiancé, we could proceed to the CAD modeling of the ring project enabling us to set the shank width and the stones size to unsure of the harmony of the design to be made.
Thanks to this 3D model we could produce rendering views of the ring project giving a very accurate view of the finished project, even before starting to make it in gold.

Choosing the stones for the ring
As our client knew which ring design he wanted, he also had a good idea of the stones to be set on the shank.
The main stone should be a good quality 4 mm round diamond accompanied by two deep green emerald stones and three smaller stones light green tone.
We could find a fantastic 0,25 carat white diamond with D color, VS2 purity, and excellent cut certified by the GIA gemology laboratory. You can see this diamond here under.

The two emerald stone choosen are deep green emeralds and the lateral small stones are peridot stones to fit with the fiancée taste for light green gemstones.
Making the engagement ring
Once the ring’s CAD design validated and the stone choosen, we started the making of the metal shank. The 3D model is used to 3D print the ring that is then cast in 18k white gold through the lost wax casting process.
The rough white gold ring is obtained from this process.
Once the rough cast ring comes from the casting process, it has to be deburred and prepolished so the gemstones can be set on the ring.
Nice gemstones have to be set on this ring, starting with the smaller and most economical stones.
