Can a Jeweller change the design of a ring?
September 17, 2016
Some ladies have had their heart set on a particular ring design for a long, long time and have been dreaming of the day it will be worn on her finger. It is often women who have a set idea of what they want, who are also wary when instilling trust in a jeweller to bring their dream engagement ring to life.
This can ultimately lead to the question of whether a jeweller can change the design of a ring?
The answer to this is not as straightforward as you may think.
When setting out to purchase a custom made engagement ring, it is important that you feel as though you can trust your jeweller. They should listen and understand what you are after and then advise the best options based on your requests and their experience. Working with a jeweller to create an engagement ring involves working as a team. An experienced and reputable jeweller will be able to guide you through the whole process and make recommendations based on their years of experience as to what will work and what will not. We would strongly suggest that you choose this time to heed their advice.
A great jeweller will work with you to bring your dream ring to reality without compromising on the quality. Sometimes it may require slight changes to the design to increase the longevity of your ring but often it will be just as you imagined it. If you have your heart set on a ring that is super fine with a solitaire diamond, you may want to allow your jeweller to thicken it up a little. A thin ring is ok when worn every now and then but if a thin ring is to be worn every day for the rest of your life, you risk breakages and, the unthinkable scenario of losing your diamond because of the fragility of the claws that were holding it in place.
A great service that Larsen Jewellery offers is 3d modelling. When custom making it can be sometimes hard to visualise the final design or be sure you are both on the same page. Larsen Jewellery offers a design service using computer aided design. Our expert team can create a 3d model of your design before signing off on the go-ahead. This is small a fee which will be deducted off the total of your final ring but is worth every penny particularly for those more complex custom made pieces.
Ultimately it is important to remember that you and your jeweller both want your ring to be perfect. There are times when it might be necessary to make a few small changes, but, remember that it is for the integrity of the design and will always be discussed with you first. The last thing that should ever occur is a customer going to pick up her / his ring and find themselves receiving something different to what they thought was ordered.
