What Goes into Custom CZ Design?
Our custom CZ jewelry is meant to look spectacular. From the precise facets of the CZ stone itself to the care and detail that goes into the metal portions, we always go the extra mile. To us, the process of designing this jewelry is both an art and a science.
With all that, what exactly goes into the design process? How does a piece of custom CZ jewelry go from an idea in someone’s head to a real object? Read on, and find out!
Custom CZ Design Consultation
The first step will have a professional design consultant who can work with you to figure out exactly what kind of custom CZ piece you want. This might mean looking through the different types of jewelry until you find something that clicks. From there, further modifications can be made.
On the other hand, maybe you already know what you’re looking for. You have a distinct vision laid out in your head. If this is the case, the design consultant can still help refine your initial concept.
Once the initial planning is finished, the consultant will move onto CAD (computer-assisted design). This is where you will start to see the custom CZ take form. By creating 3D models, the consultant can see exactly what they’ll need to do in order to actually create the item.
These models are extraordinarily detailed and realistic. They are even made to the exact finger size of the finished piece. There’s a good reason for this; we want you to see what it is you’ll be getting. Once the design is finished, it’ll be shown to you for approval. If you’re satisfied, we’ll get started on the creation process. If not, we’ll make whatever changes you request.
Making Custom CZ Jewelry
Our jewelers will use the finished CAD image and recreate it in reality. The CAD will be used to “print” a wax that will allow the ring to be cast exactly as you have approved it. The final touches can be added once the ring is cast and polished. Some processes, such as milgrain and engraving, must be done by hand in order to look sharp and crisp.
This is where the design process pays off. Once all the details have been figured out, the jeweler will be able to work wonders putting them into place. The realistic images produced by the CAD software help a great deal.
Custom CZ Creation
As you can see, a lot of effort goes into the creation of a custom CZ ring, earring, or pendant. It takes around 2-3 weeks to take care of the initial planning and consultation, and 3-6 weeks to actually make the item.
This attention and effort, however, is exactly why WinkCZ is known far and wide for creating the finest in custom CZ jewelry.
