OUR PROCESS

Clients work directly with Octavia, founder and designer, of Octavia Elizabeth.

Octavia starts by gaining a clear idea of what each client is drawn to stylistically and encourages you to view her Classic Styles prior to an initial phone call or in-person consultation. Octavia herself is a bench jeweler and prefers to work in 18K Yellow Gold, we hope you'll choose the same for your Octavia Elizabeth engagement ring.

After walking the client through her process, a non-refundable, but transferable deposit is taken if the client wishes to proceed. The deposit also acts as a place holder for the month of your choosing (based on availability). Please note, Octavia makes 5 engagement rings each month and generally books up to 1 month before. 

From there she develops hand drawn sketches that will then be turned into a computerized and life-like rendering along with a detailed proposal and timeline for each client. Each client is shown 3 diamonds that meet or exceed our suggested quality parameters that are outlined in our Diamond Guide

Each ring Octavia makes is custom to you. If you don’t see exactly what you want in our Classic Styles, we will adjust it. Details like single or double claw prongs, the height of your diamond or the thickness of the band will all be bespoke to you.

We will curate a beautiful array of diamonds for you, all within your personal specs and competitively priced. In your private diamond viewing appointment (in person or digitally), we will explain everything you need to know regarding the diamond and setting options. This way, you can feel confident that you are making the ideal choice for you and your fiancée!

If you are local to Los Angeles, or will be visiting the area, you can inquire using the form below for an in-person consultation at our design studio.

For those worldwide, we collaborate through phone calls, email and via high-res images, videos and sketches.

Our process can be as little as 3 weeks if needed, but generally we encourage you to allow for 6 - 8 weeks. Additionally, please keep in mind that Octavia only makes 5 engagement rings a month and books up so plan accordingly.

Our engagement rings start at $5000.
