1. Get help from environmentally friendly professionals.
Once you have decided which type of ring you want to create, which metal and which stone, it is time to choose the goldsmith. If you are unsure about the basic choices, you can ask the goldsmith for advice. Ask them to show what the different options look like, and what that would fit with your engagement ring. The team at TIDAN consists of among the best jewelry and 3D designers around the world and have great knowledge in the subject. TIDAN offers the service to design your own rings or other jewelry online, by starting a project on the website.
You should also make sure that the goldsmith is environmentally friendly and uses sustainable materials and processes. A hot tip is to test a goldsmith who offers 3D printinted jewelry,to shorten the supply chain. Sustainable materials and fair working environments are also important as you can make sure that everything has gone well, with the least possible ecological footprint. TIDAN offers sustainable alternatives such as lab-grown diamonds and even Fair-trade gold and silver.
Also, choose a goldsmith with a lifetime warranty,as you can make sure that any manufacturing defects do not affect you and your dream ring. TIDAN creates jewelry that should last for a life time, and guarantees repair if there are any problems with this.
2. Match your wedding ring to the engagement ring.
Don’t forget that the wedding ring you create should complement the engagement ring, in both style and fit. It is preferable to choose the same metal on your engagement ring and wedding ring, in order for the colors to match. The fit of these two rings and how they sit on the finger together is also very important. The wedding ring should not wear on the engagement ring, or vice versa. In addition, none of the rings should “take over” for the other, they should complement each other.
Ask your goldsmith what you can do to avoid wear on the rings, to keep them for a life time. For example, the rings should preferably have the same height (at the high edge) so they do not rip any claws that hold the stones. Measures should also be taken to avoid ripping out engraving. Ask your goldsmith for advice on any wear and tear problems. TIDAN has the experience of creating rings that last a long time, with a craftsmanship of the highest quality. You can sit back, relax, and trust that everything is done properly.
3. Adapt the wedding ring to your everyday life.
A final, but very important part of the process, is to think about what your everyday life looks like. For example, if you have a job where you work a lot with your hands, this may need to be taken into account when designing your wedding ring. The wedding ring will hopefully sit on your finger for life, and it should last for the everyday life you live. Consult your goldsmith. How can the ring be adapted to you and your life in the best way? Depending on what you want to create, you may need to remove the ring in certain situations. Design based on the situations you want your ring to handle.
