With nearly 50 years in the jewelry business, and a longstanding tradition of excellence in the Charlotte area, we leverage our knowledge and experience to offer you fine quality diamonds at the best prices. Ballantyne Jewelers can offer exceptional diamond prices because of our reputation with the public, our standing with diamond partners, and our high standards.
As a family owned and operated jeweler, we are 100% fully invested in our diamond business. We are not supported by third party financial firms, so we always buy the best in every quality category of diamonds, giving us a competitive edge over the traditional and big-box jewelers. The reasoning behind this is simple. There are no two diamonds alike. Although diamond reports may show the same grades, in reality, the diamonds may look like complete opposites.

Custom Jewelry Design

Custom Jewelry Design Process

Creating custom jewelry takes passion both on the part of the master jeweler and the customer. It takes a passion for finding that perfect fit, that perfect piece that will be a great addition to your collection. When someone decides that they want a custom piece created, they can come to Aydin or Sami and together we will work on creating a sketch, a concept of what your future design will be. Sami and Aydin will do the sketch based upon any ideas that you would like to see, plus they will include specifics to make your custom jewelry complete.

An easy-to-understand example of this would be if you had an idea for a fashion ring that you would like to have made or you saw a ring in an advertisement but could not find where to get it, we could make it for you. Another example would be that many times people purchase engagement rings that do not have matching bands, and their engagement ring does not fit well with any of the manufactured bands. We can create a custom wedding band for you that will match up perfectly to your precious engagement ring.

After the concept drawing is complete and the client gives approval of the design, we move on to carving out the design in wax.

The Master Jeweler will oftentimes place the gemstones into the wax model. In this case he places into the model the Chrome Tourmaline stone, which weighs 6 carats, and the four straight baguette diamonds, combined weight 0.75 carat, to ensure proper spacing and fit. Once the details are completed in the wax model, and with final approval from the client, the completed wax form is attached to a wax rod, called the sprue, and suspended in a steel cylinder, where an investment material similar to plaster is poured. The cylinder is placed in an oven to bake and harden for approximately 10 hours, and as the wax melts out from within through the hollow tube formed by the sprue, a negative form of the original wax model remains in the center of the hardened investment material.

Once cooled, the hardened material is placed in a vacuum casting machine if the desired piece is to be crafted in white gold, yellow gold or platinum. Once the 18 carat white gold is injected, the investment material cylinder is placed in water where it dissolves, and the 18 carat gold is left in place of the wax. You now have a ring less the Chrome Tourmaline stone and the four diamond baguettes. When the precious stones are added, with everything complete, you are free to show off your unique and custom designed jewelry.
