Hello, my name is KELEN.
This ring I'm going to show you today is called a promise ring .
For the promise ring,
It is said that the bonds and relationships with important people are made visible and always worn.
There is a role like a talisman.
Each person who wears it there
"I'll be watching over you forever."
"Be good friends forever"
And so on, the message of the heart that thinks of the other party is included.
If two people before marriage do it,
Some people wear it as a wedding ring.
This promise ring was made in response to a request to express the feeling of "Let's be together forever".
The customer's request was simple, just to ask him to use his birthstone.
He was born in May, so emerald or jade.
I was wondering which one to use.
Even he, who has never worn accessories such as rings, uses jewelry every day.
Worried about his troubles, he chose jade.
Although it was decided to use jade,
We leave the design to you, so it starts with deciding on the concept.
I decided as follows
- Casual design for everyday wear
- Different designs than wedding rings
- Simple design with stones
It looks like the design will start with stones, so this time I started by looking for jade before design drawings.
Looking for jade and making wax
Although I started looking for jade,
Without finding a stone that looks like glasses,
When I was about 80% prepared that I would have no choice but to order from the cut,
I came across a stone that caught my eye.
After walking and walking, I finally found Jade.
Pin the moment you see it! came with
An unexpected marquise cabochon.
The long thin marquise is dignified and very cool,
This will definitely suit those two! I was convinced.
Once you have the jade, all you have to do is make it.
Since both of you have thin fingers and the diameter of the ring is small,
So that the elongated marquise fits well,
Place the stone on the wax model many times and finely adjust the stone seat to finish the shape.
Once the prototype is completed, we entrust the wax to the best cast craftsman.
This ring is not a mass-produced product, so it does not take a rubber mold (which is made when mass-produced).
Therefore, if the casting fails, the prototype is remade.
So I entrusted it to someone I trust.
As expected, the beautifully cast ring is polished and stoned.
His specialty is polishing.
Polish it to a shine.
Finally, there is the stone setting.
The most stressful time.
Since jade is sticky, it is a stone that is generally less likely to break,
After all, it's an elongated marquise,
The pointy part will crack with a little force! ?
So don't let the jade horn touch the metal of the ring body.
I made a groove to escape with a chisel.
That's all right!
I thought, so I'm going to go down around the stone at once.
As expected, it held up nicely.
It's a pleasant feeling when you finish fixing the stone.
That's why I can't stop making jewelry.
The day you hand over your promise ring
In fact, this promise ring is
It was a birthday present for him.
I was planning to give it to him as a birthday present because he had been wanting a pair of rings for a long time.
So I made it in time for the day.
look at the finished ring
I was very happy to see her smile, and I thought it was a good idea to make it.
On the day of his birthday, he sent me a video of his reaction when I gave him the ring.
look at his happy smile
Once again, I received a share of joy.
The video is a secret.
I will gently cherish the smiles of the two people who are very innocent, full of joy, and happy.
