～Process of Custom Made Rings～
1.Choose a diamond (Engagement Rings)As an official GIA (Gemological Institute of America) dealer, all of our diamonds come with a certificate of authenticity and are available in a wide range of sizes and quality. We will recommend the best diamond that meets your needs and budget.
2. Choose a designChoosing the right design for your ring is one of the hardest parts of the buying process as the design of the ring will decide if you will continue to love it and wear it for many years to come. According to a survey that we have done, we found that more than 60% of couples are very satisfied with their rings but for the remaining 40%, their satisfaction levels dropped after several years. Reasons include them being tired of the design, not getting their favorite design due to budget and the fit of the ring that has changed after so many years.
StraightAs the name suggests, this simple and classic design has a straight band. The design itself is often simple, and the appeal is that both men and women can continue to wear it for a long time without getting tired of it as they age. The impression changes considerably depending on the width of the arm. It is a standard design that even men who are not accustomed to wearing rings can wear with relative ease. It is recommended for those who want to wear it at work or in their private life without worrying about scratching or catching it in daily life.
S-shapeThe wave-curve design, also known as a "S-shape", is a ring with a gently curved, wavy shape. In contrast to the straight design, the twisting, wave-like look of the S-shaped ring gives it an elegance and graceful appearance. It also has the effect of making the finger look slimmer, and when combined with melee diamonds (small diamonds), the ring becomes even more exquisite.
V-shapeThe V-shape design is characterized by the sharply defined lines of the wedding band. V-shaped rings are ideal for those who want to make their fingers look longer, as they emphasize the vertical line of the ring. Designs with diamonds decorated in a V-shape have a strong presence and are recommended for those who prefer a glamorous ring.
EternityEternity rings are rings with gemstones around the full or half circumference of the band, and are said to be derived from the word "eternity" meaning "eternal love". Full eternity rings are designed with stones around the entire circumference of the ring, while half eternity rings are designed with stones around the half circumference of the ring, at the top of the finger. Many people choose the half eternity design for its comfort and its possibility for further resize.
3. Choose Your MaterialAfter marriage, the engagement and wedding rings will always adorn the ring finger of the left hand. Since you will use them for the rest of your life, you will want to choose rings that are as durable and of good quality as possible. You may also be concerned about the color of your skin and how easily it matches other accessories or watches you own. The following is a list of metals used for engagement and wedding rings, along with their characteristics.
White GoldEven though it is called gold, there is a type of gold that has a pure white shine, and that is white gold. White gold is a base metal made by mixing gold with silver and palladium. When it is made into a ring, it is plated with rhodium, a precious metal, to give it a brilliant white color. After years of use, this part may peel off due to friction and the original champagne gold base may appear, but it can be re-plated to restore its pure white color.
Yellow GoldAdored by many, yellow gold is the most spectacular and prominent of all golds. It has a luxurious and extravagant feel, making it an item that can be used to elevate fashion at night parties, dinners, and other high-end venues. It goes well with pink gold as well as platinum, so it is a trendy option to match it with a variety of rings.
Pink GoldRose gold is slightly pinkish because of the large amount of copper mixed into it. The reddish color of copper gives it a pinkish hue. The most attractive thing about pink gold is its soft and warm atmosphere. It is also said to be relatively easy to blend with the skin.
PlatinumPlatinum is a material with a silvery-white shine and is known for its excellent compatibility with crystal-clear diamonds. Its elegant and calm atmosphere makes it easy to wear regardless of time and place, and it has a refined luster and presence that does not diminish even when worn on older hands. Jewelry is all about glamour, but some people not accustomed to wearing jewelry may find it too flashy and difficult to wear. Platinum has an elegant texture, but depending on the design, it can also create a sharp and cool atmosphere, making it an easy material for men to get used to.
Combi / 2 ToneCombi wedding rings are designed by combining different materials. One of the most popular features of this type of ring is the overlapping of the two-colored arms, creating a distinct contrast in color and a unique design. Many people combine white gold with either rose gold or yellow gold, making the ring fashionable enough to be worn without diamonds.
4. Select a surface finishEven with a similar design, you can change the look of the ring not only by the material, engraving, and width of the ring, but also by applying different surface finishing. In general, there are two main types of surface finishes that can be applied to a ring: mirror finish and matte finish. The following is an introduction to the four most common types.
Mirror finishThis is a technique to create a smooth surface that reflects light like a mirror without a single scratch. This is the most commonly used surface finishing method among the different types of surface finishes. Worn with an engagement ring, it will shine more brightly and enhance the beauty of your hand.
Hairline matte finishAs the name "hairline" suggests, the entire surface of the ring is covered with numerous fine hair-like lines. It is a matte, delicate, elegant and tasteful surface finishing method. It also has the merit of making scratches less noticeable.
Honing matte finishHoning refers to a process that clouds the surface of the ring. Because there is no shine, the overall image is softer and the appearance is somewhat gentler. Depending on the design of the ring, it is possible to apply the finish to only one part of the ring, and it is also recommended to use it as an accent.
Special matte finishThis is a process in which the surface of the ring is beaten with a hammer to create a large number of surfaces. The texture is uneven and gives the ring a unique atmosphere. It is a popular finishing method among men as well, as it gives different atmospheres depending on the craftsman's force and the angle at which the hammer is struck.
5. Add a personal touchFor those who are looking for a more personalized ring for two, here are some other arrangement options. Engraving and birthstone clasps are very popular options for wedding rings, as they strengthen the bond between the couple.
EngravingA secret message can be engraved on the inside of the ring. Engraving makes the ring one-of-a-kind and increases the sense of attachment to the ring. Whenever you see the engraving, it will remind you of each other's presence and the feelings you had when you first met. You can choose from a variety of fonts, and of course, Japanese is also available.
Inner BirthstoneAnother option for the inside of the ring is the setting of birthstones. Each birthstone has its meaning and is said to bring positive power to the wearer. Some couples incorporate their birthstones or exchange birthstones with each other. By wearing each other's birthstones, couples can feel the bond between them.
Changing the width of the ringBy changing the width of the ring, the impression of the ring can be changed dramatically. We recommend that you try on the ring in a store first, as the width that is comfortable to wear will vary depending on the shape of your hand. As you age, your fingers may change little by little, and it may be a little difficult to choose the right ring, but our experienced staff will be happy to explain it to you in detail.
Changing the melee diamond to another gemstoneSome ring designs have a melee diamond perched on the surface, usually a white diamond. If you want to personalize your ring and make it uniquely yours, we can change the melee diamond to another gemstone such as pink diamonds, blue diamonds, black diamonds, etc. This will be a custom ring that you will always think of each other when you look at it.
