Bespoke Engagement Rings
HOW DO I MAKE HER THE PERFECT ENGAGEMENT RING?
FIRSTLY I ENGAGE WITH YOU
Are you still searching for the perfect engagement ring but you just can’t put your finger on it? You want something truly unique. A ring that you chose yourself, not just a ring that you chose off the shelf.
I believe an engagement ring is made for two and take great care to make sure you have the perfect ring with your personal touch.
At Rosie Odette I specialise in making engagement rings that are a part of both of you. Alternative unique engagement rings which tells your story.
Together we will create a stunning ring that will truly be unique, last a lifetime and that will symbolise your true love forever.
Handmade Bespoke Diamond Rings
I craft each diamond ring lovingly and carefully by hand using traditional techniques.
The process begins with sourcing the diamonds. I hand-select many of my gemstones on magpie hunts in India and the highest quality reputable diamond dealers in the famous Hatton Garden, London.
However, India is where my passion for gemstones and creating jewellery was first ignited. Diamonds vary greatly in size, quality and colour, so when it comes to designing your dream diamond ring, you won’t feel restricted in design or budget.
I use many techniques to create a custom piece of jewellery. Depending on what the final design requires, I may use Cad, metal work or wax technique to make it. However I think wax-carving is my favourite.
To hand-carve your ring from wax, I simply use a saw and a file and various dentist tools along with a hot wax tool which allows me to reapply wax and take away from the design as I go along. Cnce I have finally finished the final design, the carving is left to harden and then placed in a kiln, where the wax is burnt away and the impression of your design is left behind.
Next is the casting process. This involves melting and pouring gold directly into the mould. After it has cooled and solidified, the mould is extracted and I clean and polish your casting.
Finally, I set your diamond into your ring. Diamonds are a great choice for an engagement ring. Why? Diamonds are forged in the Earth’s crust over the course of 3.5 billion years and are used by many light healers for powerful healing, clearing your mind and heart, and imparting invincibility and strength. On the Mohs scale of relative hardness, a diamond is rated as 10. This means that it is the hardest mineral known to man. Only a mineral that is the same hardness grade can scratch the mineral. This ensures that your custom, handmade diamond ring will be enjoyed for many more generations to come.
Bespoke Wedding & Engagement Rings
A bespoke wedding or engagement ring will last for many generations to come and will forever remind you and your partner of your special day. I can help you create your dream ring, custom made to suit your styles and to reflect your unique relationship. I can also remodel your old wedding and engagement rings into stylish pieces with new designs that you won’t be able to find elsewhere.
White gold, yellow gold and rose gold are the most popular metals for engagement rings. Diamonds are the most popular gemstone, with round white diamonds being a classic and traditional choice. However, the tones of coloured diamonds are best displayed in other shapes. Coloured diamonds do carry a price premium, so a great way to feature them in your design while still ensuring that your ring is affordable is to use them on the band or in the halo. For a more affordable yet still stylish and precious alternative to diamonds, you might opt for moissanite instead.
Diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies are popular gemstone choices for wedding rings. If these aren't to your tastes, you can choose from many others, like amethysts and opals. As for your choice of metal, you shouldn't feel pressure to turn to the conventional choices of yellow gold or platinum. I can help you choose from a wide variety of other gorgeous metals.
