As a custom jewelry designer, I often get the opportunity to create extra meaningful rings.
This project took ‘meaningful’ to the next level by incorporating locations that are incredibly sentimental to the couple.
This extra special location is the mountain ridge-line which overlooks the town in which they live, and the butte down below—the location of their first kiss!
Not only do the rings serve as a reminder of some special moments in their lives, they also serve another purpose.
These rings also signify the love they have for mountain climbing, hiking, and enjoying nature.
Want to work with us on a custom mountain ring (or something else?) Please fill out our customization form!
Whenever we design custom rings, we always start in CAD in order to get a feel of how the ring will look like before it is cast in metal.
This allows the client the opportunity to see what the ring will look like and request any changes they might want to see.
Once the ring design is looking just perfect, the client approves the design and the model is grown in wax and cast in metal.
Ring Casting Before Enamel
After the ring is cast and polished up, it is ready for the finishing touches.
In this case, we will be adding some color to the mountain and butte cutouts to give it some contrast. We will also be adding a finish to remove some of the shininess of the rings.
You can really start to see the ring taking shape!
White Enamel And Brush Finish
The completed ring features a white enamel inlay which really let’s the mountain lines “pop” visually.
A brush finish, also known as a matte finish, was added to the ring to remove the high polish shine of the yellow gold.
Mountain Rings—Individually Tailored To Each Person
The great thing about custom jewelry design is the same pattern can be duplicated, but in different sizes!
For example, one of these rings needed to be a much larger size than the other, yet the design remains the same.
The mountain design was also replicated in different millimeter dimensions. The wider ring is 7mm wide and the thinner ring in 5mm.
Thus you can see that each custom ring will be individually tailored to fit the person wearing it!
