What You Should Know About Engagement Rings

A little education goes a long way – so we’ve compiled short beginners guides to a few of the most important things you’ll be talking about when designing your engagement ring.

It all starts with a conversation

We begin every design with a discussion of your goals, budget, and time-frame, and the best part is, you can do the entire process online.

Whether you share a Pinterest idea board, already know what you want, or customize a design from our site, you will be designing with experienced, artistic professionals.

By designing and manufacturing everything locally, we ensure extraordinary craftsmanship, unique, nuanced designs and great value.

CAD modeling

Realistic renderings and physical models help transform sketched ideas into reality in an interplay between the client, the designer and the CAD team, all of whose input and ideas help create something that both looks right and fits perfectly.

The entire Cindis project team collaborates on each piece, adding nuanced details and subtle improvements to the design, all while making sure that design cohesiveness, stability on the finger, and stone security are perfected.

Wax Carving & Model Making

If the piece is to be cast, and most are, we then create a wax or Resin master model. We have our own 3-D printers and growers as well as hand wax carvers onsite, to create the perfect blend of artistry and detailed perfection.

Casting

Once the design has been approved, the model is now set for casting. Our caster’s facility is state of the art, with world class equipment and a custom casters’ attention to detail.

Our Galloni platinum and gold casting equipment, some of the finest machines made, allows us to cast each piece perfectly for the best quality control & cost efficiency.

Gemstone Setting

We always hand set each gemstone, detailing all areas to perfection. We sharpen our gravers more often, work under bench microscopes and do all work in house. You are invited to visit and watch our artists work in-person here in our studios. Compare the pictures in our Gallery to see the attention to fine detail & Craftsmanship.

Texture, Finishes and Detailing

The final stage of the production process includes adding textures & finishes. Before quality marking, we double and triple check all details of the design to ensure all instructions have been meticulously followed, the design is well executed and all craftsmanship is top notch.

FEATURED STORY

Featured Story: Caitlin and Robbie

Robbie and Caitlin met each other in college in 2013 in Spokane Washington when the two of them ended up at a mutual friends house together, and while Robbie immediately had a huge crush on Caitlin, he had to move just a month later to Chicago to go to a different school and soon after Caitlin would move to Seattle as a children’s cancer care nurse. 

6 years passed, they both had wandered off seeking out careers always wondering who they would ‘end up with’ until, in 2019, Robbie (a New England native) saw an instagram story from Caitlin and how she was looking into moving to Boston to work at Boston Children’s Hospital in the cancer care unit. Though she was “way out of his league” and they hadn’t ever really had a meaningful conversation, Robbie quickly shot off a suave message saying he could “show her around the city if she were ever interested”. Wink. wink.

It turns out that she did want to be “shown around the city” and soon after that, they were inseparable! Except …. she didn’t end up getting the job in Boston and they were forced to be 4000 miles from one another for the first months of their relationship – besides bi-monthly trips to go see one another.

Undeterred, Robbie and Caitlin fell head over heels for each other and the more time he spent getting to know her, the more he was convinced she was the one with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life.

After returning to Massachusetts from a 2 week long trip visiting Caitlin in Seattle, Robbie began exploring engagement options with Cindis in early April of 2020 – just as Covid-19 was shutting everything down. Bewildered by the amount of different engagement rings to choose from on the internet, he sent Cindi the pinterest board that Caitlin had been creating for her future fiance.

Because of the rings Caitlin had chosen to like on pinterest, Cindi and Robbie knew Caitlin wanted something elegant and delicate, but also something that would hold up under the labor of being a nurse and constantly putting on and taking off gloves.

Despite how overwhelming picking out the right ring could be, Robbie was determined to create something that perfectly fit Caitlin.

Luckily, Cindi was there to make the process feel simple and easy. After searching and finding a base ring from Cindis site that was a good starting point for what he wanted

Classic Diamond Engagement Ring with Detailed Milgrain Band Classic Diamond Engagement Ring with Detailed Milgrain Band 

Robbie was able to change each part to make it exactly what he imagined Caitlin would like. The center diamond was switched out with a beautiful oval shaped diamond, secured with 8 separate claw prongs (a style Robbie had seen in his research which he admired) and they switched out the diamonds next to the center for larger pear shaped diamonds. As an added bonus, he also snuck 2 tiny round diamonds under the center mounting that he knew only she would really ever see.

He had it originally rendered in Rose Gold because of how trendy and pretty it looked (the CAD picture can be seen above) but soon decided on 14k Yellow because it would match everything else she already wore.

He sneakily planned a trip for her to come out and, though she had suspicions of a proposal happening, Caitlin’s mom ruined her hopes by revealing that Robbie hadn’t spoken to Caitlin’s father yet for permission (though unknown to her, he actually had).

She disappointedly boarded her plane and flew to New England where he had planned a trip full of sight seeing around the North Shore, the Cape, with a drive in movie and sightseeing fun which all culminated ultimately in Newport, Rhode Island on Graves Point.

Because Robbie is a videographer, his camera didn’t raise any suspicions and Caitlin thought he just wanted to take some cute photos of the two of them on the rocks with the ocean in view- but then soon he nervously got on his knee and she knew what was happening.

He held the dazzling ring before her, she said,” Yes, of course!” wiping away tears and now they’re planning their long awaited wedding for the fall.

Robbie knew he knocked it out of the park when he first heard her say, “Oh my gosh! This ring is mine! I never thought I’d own a ring this nice!” and also from a story Caitlin told of how, in the airport, after her flight from Boston back to Seattle, an older man who had sat nearby asked Caitlin, “excuse me, are you married?”

She curiously answered, “actually i just got engaged a few days ago, why do you ask?”

“haha,” he laughed, “I thought so. I couldn’t help but notice that you’ve been staring at and playing with that ring of yours for the entire flight.”

And that’s what we love to do here at Cindis.
