Metals

Q: What is Siladium™?
A: Siladium is comparable to a fine jeweler's stainless steel. It contains 12% nickel. It polishes to a high white luster, is strong, durable and guaranteed for a lifetime.

Q. What is Golden Siladium?
A: Golden Siladium looks like karat gold, but without the price. It contains 12% nickel and is comparable to a fine jeweler's stainless steel. Another affordable alternative from ArtCarved! Available on select styles.

Q. What is Silver Select™?
A: This metal is our state of the art invention (patent pending). Silver Select is harder than other tarnish-resistant silver metals and more precious than Sterling Silver. It has a brilliant white luster familiar to sterling silver buyers with added strength from platinum. It is 95% silver, and 5% copper and platinum alloy.

Q. Is 10Kt harder than 14Kt or 18Kt? What do most people order?
A: 24Kt gold is pure but too soft to use, so it is mixed with other metals to strengthen it. 18Kt is 75% pure. It is the European standard. 14Kt is the most popular choice in the U.S.; however, 10Kt is an affordable, beautiful alternative. White gold is the quality of 10Kt or 14Kt mixed with different metals to make it silver-colored.

Q. What is an Antique Finish?
A: A dark background brings out the polished details. It is the most popular and most pictured finish in the brochure and Web site. Black antiquing is standard for Siladium, Golden Siladium, Silver Select and White Gold. Brown antiquing is standard on Yellow Gold rings.

Q. What is a Natural Finish?
A: Natural Finish is as beautiful as the Antique Finish, but without the dark background. This option is lovely with more subtle detailing, and is available on select styles in Silver Select, 10Kt, 14Kt and 18Kt gold.

Q. What is the two-tone metal option on the Crestline ring?
A: The Crestline Series offers Legacy, Tribute, Cameo, Heirloom and Remembrance in two-tone metals as well as all gold or all Siladium. Siladium Two-tone is a Siladium ring with a 10K base that features the year date. A Yellow Gold Two-tone features a 10Kt, 14Kt or 18Kt Yellow Gold ring with a Siladium base. A white gold two-tone features a 10Kt or 14Kt white gold ring with a 10Kt Yellow Gold base and a Siladium Crest.

Q. What is the two-tone metal option on the Genesis ring?
A: The Genesis ring is offered in a limited selection of two-tone metals. Siladium Two-tone is a Siladium ring with a 10Kt base that features the year date. A Yellow Gold Two-tone ring features a 10Kt Yellow Gold ring with a Siladium base.

Q. Can a crest ring come in Natural Finish?
A: No, due to the unique design of our crest rings they are available only with an Antique Finish.


General Questions

Q. Do you carry college rings?
A: Yes, for select schools. Please click here for college rings

Q. Can I order a ring without a school name?
A: Yes. High School rings are available without school names. A special diamond or star-shaped design may be used in place of the school name. The words "High School" may also be used.

Q. Can I order a ring with a back year date? 1988 for example?
A: Yes. All ArtCarved Class Rings are available with back year dates for a nominal charge, as long as the school is still in existence.

Q. Can I order a ring with custom wording around the stone?
A: Yes. High School rings are available with custom wording around the stone instead of a high school name. The maximum length is 40 characters (letters and spaces combined). Please note, there is a $99.00 spell-out fee for custom wording.

Custom word character limits different for the following ladies' high school class ring styles:

Celebrity: 35

Q. What if I go to home school?
A: We offer the option of the following spellouts: "Home School", "Home Education" and "Home School High".

Q: Who is ArtCarved?
A: ArtCarved is one of the most respected names in jewelry today. Founded in New York in 1850, ArtCarved began as a manufacturer of high-quality and uniquely styled wedding bands and engagement rings. They first entered the class ring business in 1920, bringing to it their expertise as makers of fine gold and platinum jewelry. Since that time, ArtCarved has emerged as the class ring industry innovator, bringing more new styles, features and options to high school students.


The Manufacturing Process

Q. What's one-piece die induction?
A: ArtCarved class rings are famous for their superior detailing, outstanding beauty and exceptional durability. ArtCarved introduced the one-piece die induction process to the class ring industry. One-piece die induction is a casting process which offers several benefits: rings are more durable, have a more uniform surface, and are precisely aligned and have a greater depth of detail.

Q. How does the die induction work?
A: Three stages of vacuum produce a solid, beautifully detailed ring. A major advantage of our die induction casting is that it involves these stages of vacuum:
  • Stage 1: Preparation of wax model: Here a vacuum is used to force the wax into the induction die, assuring a wax ring of the finest detail.
  • Stage 2: Preparation of the plaster mold: A plaster of paris solution is poured around the wax ring, again using a vacuum to eliminate porosity and retain fineness of detail. When this plaster mold is heated, the wax "lost." The cavity left by the wax is then ready for casting.
  • Stage 3: Casting the metal: Here a vacuum is used to force the molten metal into all parts of the mold, creating a uniformly strong, richly detailed ring.
Q: Where are the rings made?
A: Each high school class ring is made in Austin, Texas by expert craftsmen.

Q: How many steps are required?
A: More than 40 hand-executed finishing steps make our class rings look lustrous and beautiful. From hand-setting each st one, to a variety of special polishing and buffeting techniques, the many painstaking finishing operations that go into every student's class ring are further demonstrations of ArtCarved's commitment to excellence.


Shipping

Q: When should I expect the ring?
A: Each personalized class ring requires between four to six weeks for manufacturing. The shipping method you choose for the ring determines the delivery time. We offer Overnight delivery, 2nd Day Delivery, and Ground Delivery (3 to 7 days). As soon as the ring ships, you will receive a shipping confirmation at the email address you provided for the purchase.

Q: May I pay extra for rush orders?
A: No. All rings require an estimated four to six weeks tme for manufacturing. In some cases rings are shipped as quickly as two weeks, but we cannot guarantee manufacturing will require less time than four weeks.

Q: Where can rings be sent?
A: We're pleased to ship to every address in the U.S.A., plus Guam and Puerto Rico. We do not ship overseas. Sorry, we CANNOT ship to P.O. Boxes in the U.S.A.

Q: The ring isn't here and it's been more than six weeks. What can I do?
