How to prepare for your virtual appointment at Valerie Madison

We want you to get the most out of your Valerie Madison virtual custom ring appointment! Here are a few pointers to help you get started: 

The technical details

  • Download Zoom. If you haven't already used Zoom give yourself at least 30 minutes to install and test it out. 
  • Please use your computer audio or reliable headphones. Airpods and bluetooth headphones don't provide reliable audio. 

Think about your dream ring

  • Browse our current range of engagement rings and save links to the styles you had in mind that best reflect the idea you are going for. 
  • Determine which center stone you are interested in such as natural diamond or gemstones or lab grown moissanite.
  • Consider if you want to stack your ring or wear it alone. We'll talk about setting profile & stackability during your appointment.
  • Be honest about your lifestyle and how you plan to wear this ring. Are you very active and hard on your hands or have a desk job? Are you more minimal or extravagant in your style? 

Confirm the basics

  • Determine what budget range you're most comfortable shopping in. We want to ensure you have a transparent and enjoyable experience and provide you with options that fit your budget. 
  • Decide a timeline for your custom ring. All of our custom-made rings have a 6-8 week timeline after stone sourcing. This means once a diamond or gem is in hand,  a deposit is paid, and a contract is signed. Quicker turnarounds are not always possible, but let us know what you have in mind so we can best advise you.

We're looking forward to helping you create your dream ring, just set up a time for your consultation. See you soon!
