how it works

The Clear Cut approaches the craft of engagement rings outside the box rather than selling you one straight from it. The process can be done fully virtually or you can book an appointment to visit us in our NYC showroom. 

chat with an expert

Our process always starts with an initial phone consultation with one of our GIA graduate gemologists so that they can better understand your preferences and answer any questions you may have. They will give you an overview of the process and then set up your personalized gem portal!

curated selection for you

Once you are on the portal, your gemologist will curate a selection of diamonds that were hand picked and inspected for quality–just for you! You can view the diamonds and their specifications, along with descriptions and photos. From there, you will give us feedback and work together with your gemologist until you find the perfect diamond. You have the option to select virtually or schedule an in-person appointment. Then, we collect a 1/3rd deposit to reserve the diamond for you and will get started on the ring design process!

design the ring

You will work with our ring production team to design a custom setting and add any personalizations that make your ring extra special (engraving, hidden halos, adding a birth stone, etc). Then, your ring is handcrafted here in NYC which takes around 3-5 weeks. Once the ring is complete, we get a final confirmation from you and ship the ring!
