At Ramsey's Diamond Jewelers we have over 1,800 rings to choose from--and you can come in to either of our stores and try them ALL on. Most of our guests typically find the ring of their dreams on their very first visit. But if you don't find exactly what you want...we have a custom designer who will sit with you to design your perfect ring. Read on to learn more about our custom design and diamond reseting processes and services.
At Ramsey's, custom jewelry design is not just a service, it’s a passion and we have been creating unique designs since 1958. From custom made bridal jewelry, including engagement rings and wedding bands, to unique diamond pendants and earrings, our design team expertly crafts breathtaking pieces to our customer’s exact specifications.
Whether our customer is a soon-to-be bride in search of a one-of-a-kind wedding band or a sophisticated shopper with a flair for the eccentric, our design team at Ramsey’s Diamond Jeweler’s will create, refine, and perfect designs until they meet the high standards of our client’s vision. From there, we seek the customer’s input throughout the development process to ensure an end product that can be worn with pride.
Here at Ramsey’s Diamond Jewelers we use a sophisticated computer-aided design program to create one-of-a-kind custom jewelry. With this technology and our experienced custom jeweler, your imagination becomes your reality.
Custom Design usually starts with a consultation with one of our experienced associates and our Master Custom Jeweler. The process can take between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how well-developed your ideas are. Typically, this is the time where we listen to your ideas and needs discuss your options draw a sketch of your design. We will then discuss the stones and the metal you would like to use, and provide you with a cost and time estimate for manufacturing your piece.
After the consultation, we will begin designing your unique piece on our CAD program. Upon completion of your design, a 3-D rendering will be completed and you will then be contacted to come by and view the animated rendering. Once your view the rendering and approve the design we will start production on the piece. When finalized, wax molds are inspected by both our staff and the client to guarantee satisfaction before metal casting.
Once you confirm the wax model, your piece is casted, assembled and your hand-picked stones are set. Your custom design is then high polished to a brilliant shine and is ready for you to pick up!
At Ramsey's, we make it easy for you to give the ring you love a completely new look and feel! If you don't want to completely design a whole new ring, you can always use your diamonds or trade-in your dimaond for a larger stone or one with a different shape! Here are some reasons why you may want to reset your diamond ring.
Consider adding smaller accented diamonds on the side of your center stone to give your ring a subtle upgrade. A simple way to do this is to switch your band for a new one with diamond accents on its side. This way, you can hold on to your original diamond while adding a bit more sparkle to your ring.
We can also upgrade your ring by adding to the amount of diamonds! The added medium-sized stones will give your ring a bigger, more eye-catching look. Perhaps you'd even like to add colored gemstones to make your ring even more unique.
Many couples upgrade to a larger center stone later in their relationship. You'll have the same ring you got engaged with, only this one will symbolize all that the two of you have accomplished together. Many couples do not have the budget to get the diamond they want when they first get engaged...but later have the means to get their dream ring!
Adding a halo to your center stone can give your ring a whole new style. This will also give your ring some extra sparkle while giving the illusion that your center diamond is larger.
You can also trade the setting on your ring for a completely new one! Couples do this for a number of reasons. Some want a change of style while others want a setting that keeps their diamond more protected. For example, bezel settings surround the stone to keep it from getting damaged on the sides. This also may be a good idea if your stone has already been damaged a bit over the years.
