Every love has a story – a unique story of how a couple came to be and where they hope to go in the future. We strive to shine a light on what makes your devotion to each other your own. We feel that an engagement ring can truly sparkle with the passion and affection that you feel for each other and we will work with you to conceptualize your love into a solid piece. At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, our team has been capturing your ideas for more than 30 years.
Your spectacular engagement ring will be such a priceless part of your love’s journey. It’s really the first step in solidifying what will be your marriage and timeless bond.
Here is what you can expect during the design process:
Teamwork: In order to tell a tale, we must first discuss what you are looking for. We see this as almost an interview as we hope our questions will bring to light your ideas and inspire us to create a timeless piece.
The concept: This step is when you will start to see your dreams in real life. We will take your ideas as well as any sketches or pictures that you may have and turn them into a visual representation of your ring. We hope you will work with us directly on this step to make sure that we have truly captured what you want. We will work on the sketch until it fits your needs perfectly.
A carving in wax: Once you are satisfied with our sketch, we will create a wax carving of your engagement ring before we put together your actual piece.
Casting: Our team will now cast your ring in platinum, gold, silver or any variations of these materials as we bring your dreams to fruition.
Fabrication: Next, we fabricate your ring by hand as we take our craftsmanship seriously.
Setting: We now build on the foundation by putting in your choice of stones and secure them by hand.
We continue to work on many steps of the process by hand. Our level of expertise has been honed over the years over countless settings, rings, bracelets, and necklaces. Each piece shares a piece of the story that makes couples unique and special. Having a tangible representation of your love makes your engagement ring priceless for years to come.
