Choice is a beautiful thing. In this life, you have the freedom to choose if you will propose to your partner — and if so, when and where. Many of us are so busy selecting the perfect place and time to propose that we get so wrapped up in the details and neglect the most crucial part: the ring! After all, no proposal is complete without a ring, and that’s a matter of choice as well. If you’ve spent days and weeks agonizing over the details of your proposal — as many of us have — but you haven’t put the same thought and care into your ring, you may be missing out. At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, we offer an unparalleled level of choice when it comes to your Cedar Lake engagement rings: our customized design process is unlike any other jeweler.
At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, our ring-design process is one that maximizes your input, allowing you to make significant decisions throughout the process while leaving the technical design aspects to our experts — who have been creating and repairing rings for more than 30 years!
We always begin by discussing your vision with you — giving our professional input and describing the possibilities and options for metal and stone. During this process, we will also offer you initial estimates for the creation of your ring — figures that generally remain accurate and can adjust along with your ideas for the ring design.
Next, we finalize your vision of the ring with blueprints and detailed sketches, outlining your ring’s dimensions and features so you can decide on any last-minute changes you would like to make. Our goal is to create your ideal ring, ironing out any design flaws or issues before any money or material is committed. To help accomplish this, we carve a wax replica of your ring, allowing you to hold an exact model of your ring — complete with model stones. It’s incredible how much holding models of your Cedar Lake engagement rings can help you visualize whether you are happy with the designs or not.
Finally, once you’ve decided you are happy with the model ring’s design, we’ll start the actual design process. We begin by casting and fabricating your ring’s metal foundation — using your choice of gold, silver, platinum (or a combination of the three), or other metal. After this, we’ll handset the stone — or stones — you think best ties your ring together. Using this design process, we’ve left many clients excited with their Cedar Lake engagement rings, which they helped design!
With over three decades of experience designing and crafting fine jewelry, our design team has helped many clients make the most important choices regarding their Cedar Lake engagement rings. If you are planning your engagement and haven’t thought about your ring, we encourage you to reach out to our team and get started crafting a beautiful and unique ring that will wow your partner! You can reach us at our Northwest Indiana shop, or by calling/contacting us online. We’re excited to maximize your choices when it comes to designing your perfect engagement ring!
