Commission Process

Ten steps from concept to conclusion.


  • Initial meeting to discuss the brief, set the budget and do initial design sketches.
  • Prepare design drawings and source stones.
  • Meeting to decide on which design to create
  • Make a wax model with the stones in place
  • Customer either asks for design alterations or approves the design and pays 50% deposit
  • Wax model is sent to be cast
  • Returns from the caster as a precious metal cast and is cleaned up.
  • The casting is stamped with makers mark and sent to the Edinburgh Assay office for hallmarking.
  • Returned from assay and  polished up
  • Stones are set and the ring given a final high polished finish



This entire process normally takes 4-6 weeks in total.
