Custom Designed Cross by ICE Fine Jewellery
Our team undertake many bespoke jewellery designs. This recent custom designed cross stood out as especially lavish. The eye-catching fantasy piece was designed by our team and produced in-house. It featured diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds. Truly a piece of superior bling.
From initial ideas to unique design
After an initial enquiry from the customer, he emailed picture of a cross similar to what he wanted. The customer wanted several different stones. We emailed back to discuss budget and talk over the precious metals to be used.
A CAD deposit was taken to make a full model. This work in Matrix gave the customer the chance to refine his ideas. We were able to visually show the difference between Round stones Vs. Princess cut amongst other choices to be made.
The Materials used
The model was then approved by the customer. Because of the intricacy of the cross and the high level of detail, a 3D printing method was used. This produced a cast-able resin cross ready for the next stage. The cross was then cast in 18ct Yellow and White gold.
Pictured is the hand engraving on the back of the cross. Note that we can engrave most items for sale on our Website at no extra charge.
A selection of precious stones was made by the customer under the guidance of one of our expert gemmologists.
- The Stones were calibrated to match
- AAAA quality rubies & sapphires
- Finest emeralds sourced from Columbia
- D coloured diamonds VVS1 Clarity calibrated
The jewellery design and manufacture process
Buffing and Polishing was completed to give a high shine to the cross. Ceramic tipped were cleaned to make the cross ready for Dave, our expert gem setter, to work his magic. Setting adds all the component parts and gemstones so that they are secure and perfectly aligned. The final assembly then takes place which brings all the elements of the project together.
Further finishing by polishing and steam cleaning was then undertaken with a stunning end result. The item was then posted with fully insured mail at a level that was appropriate for a custom designed cross of this nature.
