Engagement & Wedding Process

Let your engagement ring tell a beautiful love story. Every couple and every love story is unique, and we take that approach when working with couples to help execute their vision for a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.  From the initial engagement ring through to the wedding bands and bridal jewelry, there is no greater joy for us than being a part of the fabric of people’s journey to commitment and love.

There is a lot of information available to the jewelry consumer, and more often than not it can be overwhelming to condense all the education and data out there.  Our goal is to quiet all the noise out there so clients can process all the information at their disposal and make confident and informed decisions when related to their bridal purchases. It takes work to choose or create an engagement ring, and we strive for this process to be collaborative, fun, and educational. We view ourselves as gemological fiduciaries working in our clients’ best interest to find the best stone and value for their budget.

Step 1: SOURCE

We begin every engagement ring/wedding band inquiry with a discovery session to understand the scope of the project and timeline, the recipient’s personal style and taste, and budget.  We begin by sourcing from an elite group of trusted and vetted diamond and gemstone dealers. From there we compile a list of viable stone options to present to the client that reflects the ideal gemological criteria at the best price.

Step 2: DESIGN

Once we have selected the center stone, we move onto mounting design and formalization. Based on the client’s ideas and references, we sketch designs and create digital mock-ups to embody the rough concept. If we’re in the right direction, we render the design through 3D CAD imaging that closely resembles the final piece. At this stage, we can also provide a rough estimate for the final price.


Once the CAD rendering design is approved, we move into the final production phase. Here starts the meticulous process of production and setting by our master platinum and goldsmiths in the historic Jeweler’s Row of Philadelphia. Each and every piece is cast locally using certified recycled metals, and every accent stone and detail is hand-selected and matched by our gemologist and founder, Sarah Demchyk.  She oversees the entire project from start to finish, ensuring the final product meets her painstakingly high standards. Our custom design process can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks from start to finish but can vary project to project. Please reach out to discuss your timing needs.
