A custom ring is a ring that can include all your preferences. In reality, budgets and some technical issues can limit the features of a custom made ring. You could have a plain custom ring or a ring studded with gemstones and diamonds. Unlike mass produced jewels, a custom ring has to be individually made and relies heavily on the skills and expertise of the craftsmen working on the ring. Given this background, you will realize that selecting a custom jewelry provider to make your custom ring is as important as the ring itself. Jewelry buyers prefer custom rings over readymade rings for many reasons. Let us presume that you like a white gold diamond ring that you came across. For budget reasons, you would like to have the same ring made in sterling silver and set with a cheaper gem, probably a white zircon instead. You can rest assured that the jewelry house with the 5,000 U.S$ diamond ring, would not be interested in making a 200 U.S$ white zircon silver ring for you. At the same time, you would be aware of the low quality of ready made sterling silver rings. Looking for a good custom jewelry provider will be your best option. Since you are ordering a single piece ring, the jeweler can give complete attention to every feature of the ring.
If you find a good jeweler willing to make a custom ring for you, gemstone options can be of tremendous help to you. For example, the type, shape, size and even cutting type of the stone can be personalized to suit your preference. You can therefore have a 7mm round blue sapphire ring in 14k white gold, the gem stone can have a smooth (cabachon) cut instead of a regular faceted cut. This is a very highly customized requirement, but a custom made jewelry provider with access to rough sapphire gems, and equipped to custom cut precious stones can easily do this for you. Like we mentioned earlier, choosing the right jeweler is the starting point for you. Worry about the design and other details once you have evaluated the jeweler.
Custom Rings, Essential Features. The features discussed here are applicable to all custom made rings, the information is explained in simple non-technical terms so do read and grasp the important points.
Design: While wholesale rings are desiged and manufactured to please mass markets with 'friendly' prices, a custom ring needs to have a design that is strong in many respects. A gold or 925 sterling silver custom ring needs to look good, at least to the specific customer for whom it is being made. Another often neglected function of the design of a custom made ring is to build in a fair degree of durability. For example, if you try to make a gem stone ring where the center stone is set with prongs, the possibility of the prongs sticking in clothes and other fabrics is high. This will cause the prongs to gradually open up and loosen the gemstone. Since the design will also define the dimensions of the custom ring, it needs to keep the available metal weight in mind. A ring with large dimensions needs to have a proportionate metal weight assigned to it.
Metal: Jewelers have somehow managed to make buyers believe that good quality custom rings can only be made in gold. The fact is that good quality jewelry can be made in sterling silver or gold. A custom made silver ring might not be cheap but, if you are looking for fine silver jewelry you will need to look at a reputed custom jewelry source. Wholesale jewelry would be cheaper than custom made jewels but, the quality of mass produced jewels will be far lower than that of custom made jewel. Gold custom rings could be made in 10k, 14k or 18k gold. Generally 14k or 18k is preferred for highend custom rings and jewelry. Gold color is also an interesting option and can be selected according to your preference. The cost of yellow or white gold custom rings should be the same as long as, the price comparison is being made between gold of the same karatage.
Weight: Ideally all jewelry should be made with a metal weight that is proportionate the size and dimensions of the jewel. This is a truth that is rarely followed, most jewelers work hard to design and produce underweight jewelry. Light weight rings put lesser metal cost on the price tags. Most buyers look at two aspects of the jewels that they buy namely, the external design and appearance and the price tag. Rings and jewelry that are mass produced try to reap the economies of scale, this requires a large market and low prices is the most effective way to attract large market share.
If you are planning to get a custom ring in gold or 925 silver we would recommend, that you give good attention to the metal weight. This is one of the prominent factors that will affect the longterm durability of the jewel. A good custom jeweler will ensure that the metal weight provide directly relates to the design, size and dimensions of the ring. If you tried to make an 8mm band ring with a weight of 15 grams in size 7, you could say that the weight was fairly good. But if you made the same ring, with the same band width and weight in size 12, we can confidently say that the gold weight is insufficient. Light weight jewels have lower metal thickness and this makes the jewel prone to bending and denting.
It is generally observed that over 60% of the gold rings worn today have insufficient gold weight. This is not surprising since gold prices are almost at their highest in history. We have seen many wholesale silver rings suffering from the sam sickness, lack of metal weight. When you choose to have a custom ring in gold or 925 sterling silver, the jeweler does not need to worry about attracting mass markets. You can therefore insist on getting a custom made ring that looks good and stays in good shape for a long time. We have very often made a statement that needs to be imprinted in every jewelry buyers mind. When budget constraints cannot get you a gold ring with a good gold weight, give a serious thought to getting a good quality silver ring.
Gemstones: Custom rings can be made with gemstones or as plain rings. When you need a custom gem stone ring, keep a few issues in mind. You should know that there are natural gems and imitation gems that are made in factories. Most jewelry buyers prefer custom gemstone rings with natural gems. There is nothing wrong in choosing a synthetic or manmade gem for your custom ring as long as, you know and are paying for what you get.
A gemstone for your custom ring could be chosen based on your choice of color or your budget. Many gem lovers believe in traditions and special powers of gems, the choice of a gem stone in a gold or 925 silver custom made ring could be made on such beliefs too. For examples, birthstone rings have been popular for many decades and continue to attract gem and jewelry lovers. Keep in mind that not all gems are equally durable, not all gems are priced the same too. You will need a fair amount of guidance from your jewelry to help you make the right choice, so make sure that you pick a reputed custom jewelry provider.
Craftsmanship: Unlike wholesale rings which are produced in highly mechanized production facilities, custom rings call for a lot of skilled craftsmanship. Kaisilver works with some of the finest craftsmen for both silver and gold custom made rings. The gemstone cutting operation, the metal mounting and the gem setting are all done by skilled craftsmen from Thailand.
Very few jewelers care to provide fine craftsmanship for custom silver rings or other silver jewelry. At Kaisilver we prove our commitment to crafting quality jewels irrespective of the metal but, using the same set of designers, gem cutters and craftsmen for both gold and silver jewelry.
Durability: When you talk about durability for your gold or silver custom ring, you speak about how the jewel would appear after a few years or even a decade. Durbility of a jewel is dependent on many factors. The design of your custom ring, the choice of gemstone, metal weight and even the craftsmanship will all influence the durability of a custom made ring. For example if you ordered a Kyanite gemstone ring to be custom made, the ring will need care and attention even if it has an excellent design, handsome gold weight and great craftsmanship. This is because Kyanite is a fairly soft gemstone and is prone to breaking or chipping. The chances of getting good durability in a custom ring are higher than, in a mass produced jewel. This because a custom jewelry provider needs to please only you and need not worry about pushing costs down.
Ring Size: Many jewelers offer a ring resizing service and claim that what you get is a custom made ring. Rings ordered by different buyers will most often have different ring sizes. An ideal custom ring will be fully customized to reflect the size of the ring, let us make this clear with an example. Let us presume that you have come across a solitaire ring in a size 6. Your ring size is 9 and the jeweler offers to resize the ring for you. The weight of the ring would remain the same, it would basically be 'stretched' under heat to increase the ring size. This is not how true custom made jewelry should be made. A custom gold or 925 sterling silver ring, should have a weight that is proportionate to the ring size. Not many jewelry buyers have such indepth knowledge about jewelry and jewelers often take advantage of this. So the next time that you think of getting a custom ring make sure that, it is a true custom made jewel and not a modified version.

Custom Pink Sapphire Rings
A truly classic pink sapphire ring in white gold. Most sapphire custom rings are made with blue sapphires infact, many jewelers are not even aware of pink sapphire gems. The gemstone in this custom made ring is a square natural pink sapphire gemstone. The difference between custom gold rings and readymade gold rings is quite easily seen if you inspect the rings. The RG233 Kaisilver pink sapphire white gold ring has a sleek and yet sturdy construction. We have not done any metal scooping inside the band. Readymade jewelry manufacturers try to produce light weight gold rings even after knowing that, reducing gold weight compromises on longterm durability of the jewel. The reduction in gold weight makes lower price points possible, and increases the chances of attracting buyers. Kaisilver custom rings have good weight and are fully tailormade to include all buyer preferences, there is therefore no need to please mass markets ... more.
Custom Mothers Rings
A mothers ring is a special occassion ring for one of the most loved person in the family. Custom rings are the best choice when you plan to choose a ring for your mother.

If you opted for this mothers ring, you could choose gold or sterling silver for a mothers ring. The fact that this would be a custom ring in the complete sense means that, you do not make your choices with any restrictions. It will be only your imagination and budget that limits what you can get. For example, if you wish to have a 14k or 18k gold ring with this design but, are not keen on combining different gems in the same ring, it is possible to keep five gems but all the same. An interesting option for this custom gem stone ring would be to include available colors of a particular gem type.
