#TBT WF Custom E-Ring Finished - And She Said YES!!!

I started a post a month ago or so to highlight my WhiteFlash custom process. View Link below to review the process and ring/diamond specs.:



And now to finish the story I thought it appropriate to jump to the "Show Me the Ring" forum.


First off...SHE SAID YES and loves her ring!!!

Next, let me say that WF did an amazing job, and although the process was not entirely issue free, in the end they exceeded my expectations.

The best tip I can give someone thinking of having a custom ring made is allow yourself 5 weeks, if possible, to have the ring completed so you are not rushing to have it completed which can add to the stress. And do as much homework upfront to create the image of your perfect ring. Send them drawings if you are an artist, or find elements of various rings online that you like and collage them together pointing out what you like from each so that the CAD designer has some visuals from which he or she can render a CAD image as close as possible to what you desire. It is very important to be as specific and descriptive as possible.


Also, be prepared to tweak the CAD rendering at least once to fine-tune it to exactly what you want. I had to tweak mine three times...but I am an engineer who is too detail oriented for his own good.
But I must admit that they were very understanding and expeditious of those changes.

So without further ado, the completed ring images. I would love to hear your feedback.

Thanks,

-Dale

P.S. Hand shots to follow soon.

Amazingly beautiful! You are an artist AND an engineer. I just love the combination of the top view with the square band reflecting the square diamond , then the fluidity of the side view softening the look. Breathtaking!

My co-worker is married to a geologist/engineer and he thinks of diamonds as "just rocks"-- since he was the only geologist I''ve met I thought maybe you all were twisted. Good to hear that''s not true.

CONGRATS! you did an fantastic job of designing the ring! I would love to see the hand shots, please!

Congrats on your engagement.

The radiant is very beautiful. The setting is lovely too. I love that while it''s "chunky" as your FI wanted, it is also feminine. The sideview is very pretty.

Gorgeous profile! Still with the simplicity of a solitaire. That''s awesome.

Too bad you''re not my Dale(BF)-I''d say yes to that ring too! (And I''m so not a diamond girl!)

Thanks for the well wishes and complimnets. You are are so great!


My camera is awful - the lens is dusty and it makes the ring look dusty or scractched when it is not... That said here are a couple quick shots I just took.

And one more for now: (scratches and dust are due to a dirty lens...they are not really on the ring)

Your ring is beautiful. I like the chunky look from the top. I works perfectly with the radiant. And the side view is gorgeous with the graduated stones and little extras on the cross bar. So nicely designed. The stone is really gorgeous and you just don't see many radiants. Very nice selection! Congratulations on your engagement, too.
