Given the intimate nature of designing a ring, we want to provide our clients with a personalized experience. By booking a one-on-one chat with a member of our team, we are able to provide a more informative design consultation and make you feel comfortable while at Cavalier.
Each appointment is as unique as the ring that is being designed. There are no rules as to how an appointment is to go. We are simply here to help guide you through the design process, and help you make an informed and confident decision.
Engagement Rings & Wedding Bands
If you're interested in designing a ring, we specialize in creating exactly what you're looking for. Step by step, we will help you navigate the custom design landscape, alongside our loose diamond and gemstone inventory, to guide you towards picking a stone and design that suits both your style and budget.
To get the process going, head to our booking page and find a time that works for you! During your consultation, you are free to use the time however you’d like - Ask questions, try on different styles, and take a deep dive into our creation process.
Currently, our pieces take approximately 4-6 weeks to design and build. However, if you require it sooner, please get in touch and we will try our best to accommodate rush orders.
Loose Diamonds & Gemstones
From the Source
Brought to you in the most direct mine-to-client route, our ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones are chosen by us, in person, from our distributors and cutters worldwide. Over the years, we have developed strong personal relationships with mines and cutting houses, allowing us to provide you with a background as to where each gemstone comes from.
Our diamonds and gemstones are mined, cut, and polished in accordance with environmentally responsible, international fair labour practices, and all of our diamonds and international gemstones are hand selected in the most direct mine-to-market way.
We do not provide insurance through Cavalier, however once your ring has been appraised we suggest giving the documentation to your current insurance provider. If you do not have insurance, we will happily provide a referral to a local company we trust. We highly recommend having your ring appraised and insured in case of loss or damage.
Third Party Appraisals
Appraisals that we provide at Cavalier are not done in-house, but rather by a well recognized appraiser in Vancouver. We will happily facilitate this for you at the cost of $100 per item.
Re-Design, Third Party Stones and Repairs
For any requests regarding re-design, use of third party stones, and repair work, please call or e-mail prior to booking a consultation as we only take on a handful of these requests. We understand the personal significance of every piece that comes through our doors and we want to ensure each piece is handled with care, and that it is, in fact, a project we can accommodate before committing to it.
*At this time we are currently not taking on repairs, and only a limited number of third party setting and heirloom work.
Out of Town Clients
Don't live in Vancouver? That's ok, we can still make it work. All of our rings are custom designed for each client - From style, stones, finger size and desired material, that's up to you. When booking your phone consultation, the more information you provide us, the better. If you’ve seen any styles on our website or on Instagram that have caught your eye, feel free to include a few reference photos.
Within Canada - $50+
International - $100-$150+
*All items shipped through Cavalier are insured up to $25,000.
