Our design packages

 

If you love our design aesthetic, but you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for within our Ethica Collection, we may be able to assist you with our custom or bespoke design packages.

We have three packages to help you create the perfect forever ring. Our Existing Design Package enables you to customise an existing design by personalising it,  making tweaks to it and/ or incorporating other gemstones of your choice, and our Shaped Ring Package means you can create a band to fit with your engagement ring perfectly.

If you have something specific in mind, our Bespoke Design Package gives you the chance to work with one of our designers to create a forever ring just for you.

FULL BESPOKE DESIGN PACKAGE

This design package allows you to create a truly unique engagement, wedding or celebration ring from scratch. We will spend one-to-one time with you to help you design a piece of ethical diamond jewellery that is symbolic and meaningful to you, starting with hand drawn sketches, then CAD, before casting in your desired metal type. You can also have wax or silver prototypes created before being 100% certain on the design, to make sure it is absolutely perfect.

EXISTING DESIGN PACKAGE

Our Existing Design Package enables you to customise one of our existing rings from our Ethica Collection. If you like a design but it would be simply perfect if a slight tweak could be made, we can modify the design. Changes to the stone shape, stone type or band can be made – just let us know what you would like to alter and we can find a way to make it happen!

1. INITIAL CONSULTATION

For any bespoke journey,  you can start by submitting your details in the contact form or by giving us a call to explore whether our bespoke service is right for you.

We are fortunate to be located in Cornwall and many of our clients like to tie in a romantic weekend break to begin designing their ring. If you’d like to visit us, we would be delighted to invite you for a one-to-one consultation in our boutique showroom in Truro.

Most of our customers like to share pictures of their ideas, which is helpful, but if you’re not sure about the design you want, don’t worry! Our designer can sketch a variety of design options, providing the imagination for you, creating something which exactly suits the nature and lifestyle of the person who will be wearing it.

You can choose to have your piece set with lab-grown diamonds, or our Ethica Diamond infused moissanite stone.

To work with you to draw up some designs, we only require a £250 deposit, which would be deducted from the total quotation.

2. HAND SKETCHES, CADS AND 3D MODELS

Upon receipt of the deposit, we can then make a start on hand sketching some ideas. Depending on what’s discussed in your initial consultation our design team will then get to work on sketching your ideas producing digital CADS of your design,

When you are happy with the CADs, we can then go into casting and start creating your bespoke piece.

Four different sketches of a uniquely shaped engagement ring featuring twisted shoulders intertwined with round brilliant and oval cut diamonds.

If you would like the opportunity to have a silver model of your piece made up, we can quote for this option separately. It will take approximately 10 days in addition to the estimated lead time but it does give you extra peace of mind that we have completely understood the exact details of your commission before it is cast.  We can create this for you, set with sample stones. This way, you have the opportunity to see a close facsimile of what your completed piece will look like and it gives you a good idea of proportions, too.

3. CASTING, SETTING AND POLISHING

When your design has been perfected and you are happy to pay the first instalment*, we are then ready to proceed to casting in your preferred precious metal type; you can choose from fully recycled 18k gold or platinum, or Fairtrade registered 18k gold.
We will give you insights of the creation process with photos of the journey along the way, from casting and setting through to polishing.

*We will ask for 50% of the outstanding balance.

4. DELIVERY OF YOUR UNIQUE JEWELLERY

Only at this stage do we request the final balance payment.

Your beautifully finished bespoke piece is thoroughly inspected and will be ready to be collected or securely shipped to you. It will be carefully hand packaged in our eco-friendly and luxurious packaging – our way of thanking you for entrusting us with something so precious.
And that’s it. You have the confidence that comes from knowing that you’ve commissioned something truly ethical in every way.

Every piece of Ethica Diamond jewellery undergoes rigorous quality assurance checks, which is why we offer a lifetime warranty with complete confidence.
