Computer-Aided Design

In this step, your jeweler will mail you a custom CAD. This computer-aided design will give you an idea of how the finished ring will look. In this stage, you can tell your designer to make some changes if you do not like something or can give him/her a green flag to go ahead with the next step.

Wax Model

Once you approve the CAD, after two-three business days from CAD approval, your jeweler will set up an appointment for you. In this, you can see the wax of the ring design.


Once you approve the wax model, the casting process can take 5-6 business days depending on the material used to make a ring. You can cast your masterpiece into whichever material you would like such as platinum and white/ yellow/ or rose gold, palladium, and recycled material.

Clean Up, Setting, and Finishing

This process usually takes 2 to 8 business days depending on the design you want to create for your own wedding ring. It is the step where your jeweler will put the final touches on the ring and its true beauty comes to life.
