Christopher will work with you to ensure that your wedding rings are perfect for you in both design and budget.

Start Planning Early

When working with a master jeweler to create the perfect wedding rings, you should start the process early to ensure that you and the jeweler have sufficient time to consider different designs and for the final rings to be crafted, fit, and for the final touches and polishing to be completed before your big day. Christopher interviews his clients in detail about the kinds of materials including the metal and any gemstones. He will want to know about your tastes and preferences, do you prefer clean classic lines, an ornate or vintage appearance, or a modern look and feel. Will you want the wedding ring to fit with the engagement ring? Some couples choose customized rings for both the engagement and wedding rings. Whether or not Christopher designed your engagement ring, he can create a wedding band that fits your needs.

Christopher is a master jeweler and can certainly guide you through the process, but you can still research and prepare in advance so that you have some ideas and can answer his questions thoroughly when working on the design of the ring. Here are some things to research and consider when beginning your quest for the perfect wedding ring.

Try Different Settings and Styles

Go to several jewelry stores and try on as many wedding rings as you want to see and feel what different styles and metals are like on your hand. This will help you to build an idea of what you like and don’t like so that you are able to guide Christopher in creating a design specifically for you.

Consider your Lifestyle

Do either of you work with your hands? Are you outdoorsy? Do you work in a medical profession and have to take latex gloves on and off? Think about what you do all day with your hands. You will wear this ring every day for the rest of your life. The ring will need to fit in with your life and not get caught on things or get in the way.

Whatever you need and want in a wedding ring, Christopher will help you to make your own wedding ring that reflects your unique bond and fits in with your lifestyles.
