Often the best option for a shaped engagement ring is a bespoke wedding band. Here at Element Bespoke Jewellery we have the expertise to bring your ideas to life by creating a wax model on the same day of your visit. This means you can see the unique design of your wedding ring before making your choice. This is a service no other jeweller can offer without the skills of a model maker and a lathe, both of which we have here. Greg can usually make a model within the hour and give you an accurate price on the completed bespoke ring.

The Process

Shaping

First we start with a tube of wax – this is then shaped using a small lathe by taking away layers until we have the rough shape of the ring.

Fitting

The wax model is then refined using files and emery papers to ensure the fit between the engagement ring and the wedding band will be exact.

Casting

Once we have the shape of the wedding band in wax it is then cast in the metal of your choice.

Finishing

When the casting is complete we file and buff the ring ready for the stones to be set.

Setting

The stone setter will drill holes for the diamonds to sit in then he will create micro claws which will hold each diamond, this is called a pave setting.

Collection

We arrange for you to come and collect your dream piece of jewellery, the first time you will see it in all it’s finished glory, ready for a lifetime of admiration with it’s very lucky owner.
