Design Process

What to expect when designing with Gerard McCabe.

Congratulations on choosing a beautiful design created by Gerard McCabe. Whether you have selected a ring from one of our existing collections, or have engaged our services to create a Bespoke item, you can find out more about the process below.

Ring Designs

Once you have selected a Gerard McCabe design from one of our collections, we will determine your ring size and order this in for you.

Generally rings will take 6-8 weeks to arrive from date of order, as each ring is made to order. Your sales consultant will be able to advise a precise delivery timeframe at the time of placing your order.

When your ring arrives, our sales consultants will be in touch with you to organise a collection from a boutique, or delivered to you via insured post. As the owner of a Gerard McCabe ring you will have peace of mind with our complimentary 12 month care plan backed by our lifetime guarantee.

You can download our free Ring Sizing Chart to find out which size fits you or your loved one. We want your chosen piece to give you joy and satisfaction. A number of our ring designs are best made just for you, to give you a superb fit. By making your ring in the correct size, you get a quality product that is uniquely tailored to perfectly fit you.

The typical timeline of our Bespoke Design Service can depend on many factors, but generally speaking from quotation approval to final product it is a 10-week process.

You can expect to have an initial (free of charge) consultation with Nazanin, our Design Director, followed by the development of the concept. Nazanin takes your ideas, hopes and ambitions for the piece from your discussion, and develops them into design sketches for discussion and your approval. You’ll receive a final quotation for the works. From this, you should expect to see your unique, one-of-a-kind jewellery created in around 10-weeks.

Finding a ring that you adore takes time and patience. A lot love and energy goes into the selection process, so, when you finally find that special ring for yourself, or for your loved one, you naturally want it to be a perfect fit, both personally and physically.

However, when it comes to proposing to your loved one, it can be difficult to establish their ring size without alerting them to your intentions. After investing your time to find the perfect ring to dazzle them, how can you know it will fit them?

Ring Size Conversion

You need not worry. Here at Gerard McCabe we have been jewellers for 4 generations, and before that we were tailors, so we know the importance of getting that perfect fit. Rest assured that as you’re swept up in the romance and anticipation of planning your proposal, you can always bring your ring back into Gerard McCabe to have it resized to fit your loved one after they have said “Yes.” Ring size conversion is a service we offer through our range of bridal services.

Resizing Services

It’s understandable if your fiance does not want to be apart from their new beautiful ring, which is why we ensure that resizing services return the ring, perfectly fitted to their finger, within a few days without any alteration to the sparkling diamonds and gemstones.

We want your chosen piece to give you joy and satisfaction. A number of our engagement ring designs are best made just for you, to give you a superb fit. By making your ring in the correct size, you get a quality product that is uniquely tailored to perfectly fit you.

This can take some time as the ring is being made new instead of resizing an existing ring. A Gerard McCabe diamond consultant can assist you in selecting the perfect ring to suit your needs. For those who like to do their research, our free downloadable Ring Sizing Chart may help you narrow down the size of the ring you’re looking for.

Gerard McCabe are experts in engagement jewellery and can assist you to find the perfect style of ring for your loved one’s hand from amongst our beautiful collections.

Bespoke Designs

At Gerard McCabe, most of our exquisite collections of Australian rings and jewellery are designed by Gerard, head designer Nazanin and their design team. Gerard works with top manufacturers in Australia and worldwide, to ensure our jewellery pieces are produced to the highest standards. A great deal of inspiration comes from our heritage, with stories from our local communities and environment paving the way to truly stunning jewellery.

To inspire and create added diversity within our Adelaide jewellery range, a few Gerard McCabe collections are licensed to Gerard and sourced from leading world manufacturers. These pieces are masterfully crafted, and all come with the Gerard McCabe seal of approval and warranty.

Australian Jewellery Made to International Standards

At Gerard McCabe, we have strict standards when it comes to selecting diamonds, gems and precious metals for our Adelaide designer jewellery. On top of this, we only employ the finest manufacturers whether local or overseas.

Our diamonds can come from a number of sources, as long as they meet our strict quality and ethical standards. If you would like to learn more about how we select the gems for our Adelaide diamond jewellery, you can do so here.

Matching, Stylish Designs

Wherever possible, we take care in designing matching jewellery items. Not only in styling and quality, but in functionality so that they fit together perfectly.

Our bridal range is a perfect example of this. In our range, engagement rings, wedding rings and anniversary rings are styled so that they complement one another. 

At Gerard McCabe, our Adelaide jewellery specialists only use the very best materials and gems. By using the finest quality items, we can create jewellery for you to cherish eternally. Our pieces are precision manufactured and engineered, crafted with you in mind.

We also believe strongly in innovation, always striving to improve and give better wearability, longevity and more creative designs. Our bridal rings are designed to be worn every day for a lifetime, serving the next generation as an heirloom. We incorporate thicker shanks in the designs. This creates a lower centre of gravity allowing the weight to be distributed towards the bottom of the ring, giving stability on the finger. As a final touch, all of our ring designs have been carefully considered to ensure the best balance of ring and stone.

With Gerard McCabe, you can discover Adelaide jewellery selections that are second to none.

At Gerard McCabe jewellers we are passionate about beautiful jewellery design. Through our bespoke design service, we can bring your unique jewellery dreams to life.
