Once you put on your wedding and engagement rings, you'll probably never want to take them off. Many sets are designed to match each other's contours and nest, but rings that simply sit flush when worn together sometimes spin on your finger.
This means you may be constantly straightening your wedding band to make it line up with your engagement ring, which can be frustrating and tiresome, and can also lead to excess wear on the band from the friction caused by constant spinning. Fortunately, our professional jewelers can solder your rings together so they stay lined up but still maintain the appearance of a set.
Depending on the particulars of the rings you want soldered together, we'll take special precautions to avoid damaging any gemstones or other delicate features present. And while we approach each job with an eye toward the individuality of the pieces, our process generally follows the same set of steps.
• The first thing we do on this type of job is to clean each piece thoroughly and check the tightness of the gemstones.
• Next, we'll line up both bands to make sure they're perfectly level, using a temporary wire to hold them in place.
• Once they're aligned, we use a laser to solder the rings together without impacting any of the other design elements in either piece.
• Finally, we'll check gemstone tightness again, and we'll refinish and polish your rings to get them back to like-new condition.
Not everyone chooses to have their wedding set or other rings soldered together, but there are several advantages to going this route. For instance, you won't have to worry about either ring spinning on your finger, so you can be sure they're always perfectly lined up. And since you likely wouldn't ever wear one of these rings without the other, there's really no reason not to attach them.
No matter what type of finish is on your rings, we can restore it once we've finished soldering them together. Our skilled craftsmen have extensive experience working with fine custom jewelry, and we can reproduce or enhance any style or effect.
We can also put a new type of finish on your rings if you're looking to change up the appearance or style of the set. Our professionals will make recommendations if you'd like based on the particulars of your pieces, and we'll carry out exactly the modifications you specify so you can have rings you're excited to wear day in and day out.
Arlene H. - Berkeley, CA - January 2016 - YelpLove this place! Short story: We custom made my engagement ring and band (jacket) here. We modeled it from my grandmothers ring to start. We were so happy with the results we had the grooms band made here as well. Long story: We live in California but my fiancé's family is in Seattle. We were first intrigued when we found a ring that looked similar to my grandmothers ring that I was trying to copy for my engagement ring. Then I noticed they make jewelry from scratch!! None of this "custom" that isn't really custom (pick a stone and setting). These guys will work with you to make the ring of your dreams. We started by visiting their store over the Xmas holidays and giving them a down payment. Then from California we started communicating through their website's messaging service. I sent the designer (Renae's awesome) a picture of my grandmothers ring, a few pictures from their website and a few from my own research. The designer then makes a cad like model of the ring. You get to work with them to tweak it to your specifications. They'll send you new screen shots of the model with every tweak. When you're happy with the model, they'll send you a 3/4 size 3D printed copy of the ring in the mail for you to feel and get an idea of the design in person. If you want to wear it you'll have to request a full size copy instead. Once you're happy you give them the go ahead to make the ring. A few tips: send pictures of what you want as well as sizes Make sure you're completely happy before they make the ring Don't guess on your ring size Wider rings (for jackets) need larger sizes
