Consultation & Drafting Design
Every design starts with a conversation and exchanging some ideas. Here, we get to know what inspires you and what kind of ring you are looking for your beloved. You can share reference images to help us understand your idea better.
We discuss a budget and a time-frame that mutually suits both the client and us. Accordingly we draft our design brief in detail, which assists us with a better clarity of your preferences and clear any possibility of misunderstanding from the beginning. This also, acts as an initial agreement between the client and us.
While defining a Design Brief, we specify all the important details like kind of designs and styles you like, your total budget for the product, the time frame you are looking at, the correct ring size, band profile and style; diamond’s and gemstone’s shape, color, clarity and carat, approx. dimensions of the product, and many more details…
Concept & Sketches
Inspired by you, after understanding your preferences and with assistance of details specified in the design brief, we develop some hand drawn concepts that outlines details in rendered sketches.
Drawing helps us conceptualise and bring original designs that are made just for you. We aim to give our best, to bring in creative insights and artistic styles that truly reflect you.
We schedule an appointment, where we present you these options and if required, make necessary alterations. Here, we assist you to choose and finalize the one concept that interests you the most, that will be “treasuring your Love & Story forever”…
We require 30% of the Quotation in Advance before we proceed with CAD drafting.
Once finalised, the hand drawn concept is further refined and drafted with accurate perfection on a computer aided designing software; a.k.a CAD software. This design draft specifies all the discussed details and is to scale.

If required, any alterations can be made at this stage before production.
CAM/ 3D Wax Model
On approval of the CAD design, we proceed with printing a 3-Dimensional Wax or Resin Master Model prototype, which is exactly to scale in respect to the original product. This 3-Dimensional prototype helps in visualising the look & feel of the original product with clarity.
We schedule an appointment at this stage, for you to see the prototype physically and try it on your finger. We also show you approximate diamond sizes. At this stage if required, you can make design alterations and if it is still not up to your expectation, then we can change the design concept and start from scratch only one time for free of cost. If the concept is changed again, additional drafting & designing charges will be applicable.

The metal cast are has generally smooth with matte finish and requires thorough refining, to bring out its detailed elements with perfect finish. All elements and delicate work requires fine eye for detailing and intricate craftsmanship.

Some of the design elements are partially hand crafted that requires delicate and intricate curling and twisting. This stage includes techniques like filigree, engraving and texturing that are very time consuming but we encourage our clients as it is worth the effort and brings out beautiful effect in the product.

Some designs elements requires further detailing that have hand-engraved motifs, carved patterns, and detailed textures for surface finishes. This stage includes, buffing and polishing for smooth and perfect surface finish like high-gloss or rhodium or matte or sandblasted and many more… Some are blackened for an antique effect and some are simple high polished for a natural gold effect. We aim to bring out the desired effect and finesse of the metal.
