Thoughts for the Custom Design Process
To start the design process we begin from nothing more than an idea of what you dream in a custom ring by Lane & Kate.
We will start with a page full of design variations from our initial conversation on design.
From all our sketches and conversation we will guide you to the ring we hear you envisioning that will perfectly marry a range of settings for your precious stone with balanced simplicity.
Once we narrow in on the design and center stone we are thinking, we will request diamonds and precious stones for you to hold and to choose the perfect hued stone for you.
Once we have the design and your stunning stone chosen we then move to digital renderings for the best view of your design. This gives you a realistic panoramic view of your design. We even can have a 3D wax mold made of your design before we move forward.
This is all included in the design process, as we want you to be as involved in the design as you wish to be.
Once the design is finalized we send our thoughts to our casting house to handcraft each piece to order w fair-mined or recycled gold paired w your ethically sourced stones all supporting local or American made makers.
The timeline for a custom piece is about three weeks for us to receive your barely there beauty. This is not including all it takes to get to your dream design so build in some time for Lane & Kate to create your custom piece.
So Create w Lane & Kate w Lively Moments In Between.
Feel free to just come by or email Lane & Kate for a conversation and let's talk custom designs for brides and grooms to be, lover to lover, or even breathing new life into heirloom pieces, sister to sister, generation to generation. We love exploring the intimacy of jewelry and how unique each story always is behind our barely there beauties we design and craft w you.
