Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my custom design process, inspirations and more. Hope you have a nice stay!

Kiss Ring

Kiss Ring

We wanted to create a beautiful diamond ring that would be comfortable for everyday wear. We decided on a feminine ring with subtle curves that kiss the center diamond.

Based on the sketches, we decided to move forward with a four-prong setting.

First round of sketches.

Then, it was time to pick out a diamond! 

The diamond on the right hand side sparkles more than the one on left.

The best part of custom designing a ring is that you can choose the diamond first, then make a setting that perfectly fits the stone that you fell in love with.  Your budget for your diamond goes further when you are not limited to a standardized size.  The tiniest difference in size of a diamond is a notably vast in dollar amount. It is a unique opportunity to have options.

Adjustment of CAD design to better resemble the sketch.

This "kiss" ring has accent diamonds that frame the center stone along a recessed edge of the band.   There are many ways to make a ring:  hand carving, fabrication, and computer aided design (CAD), to name a few.  We decided to use CAD for this project.  The challenge with CAD is to make sure that the ring does not look blocky and devoid of a human touch. 

The above image shows the parts of the ring that needed to be fixed in CAD to better resemble the sketch.  We wanted the ring to have a graceful curve that gradually angles towards the center diamond.
