Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) October 29, 2009 -- Simone and Son, Orange Countyâs premier fine jeweler, ushers in a new era of custom engagement rings, combining the clientâs input from the very start. As a distinctive alternative to ready-made engagement rings and wedding bands, Simone & Son opens up the creative process, allowing customers to infuse their own personalities and sense of style to their rings to create lasting symbols of matrimony.
âToday, couples are waiting longer to get married and something they deliberate upon, often quite painstakingly, is the process of selecting engagement and wedding rings,â said Shant Dakessian, co-owner, Simone and Son. âFor those who seek something different from mass-produced jewelry, we offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance for couples to participate in designing their own rings. Brides and grooms write their own vows; designing their own rings is a natural evolution.â
Whether the idea comes from an old family heirloom, a sketch or in the mindâs eye, Simone & Sonâs experienced artist sketches a hand drawing of the ring. A prototype is created, using the most sophisticated prototyping machines. High-tech equipment enables Simone & Son to create designs with incredible detail, at a faster pace than traditional methods.
In the casting stage, molten metal is poured into a perfect negative impression (a unique mold), which is cooled and then removed. A good casting produces metal that is free of air bubbles. What remains is a scaly but detailed shape that must be finished. Hand craftsmanship lends to the beauty of the finished piece.
