    Yes they are pretty accurate, make sure it looks great before you have them make the model. : (5 votes)

    They are not so accurate, the actual ring always looks way better. : (1 votes)

    No the real ring isn't like the render, the basic design is the same but the real ring is way nicer : (3 votes)

    The render looks better than the real ring sometimes! : (0 votes)

    My render was pretty close to what the ring turned out to be…the only thing was it was “dull” and the jeweler said “imagine this but sparkly…”  It came out just like a shined up version of the render.  If you aren’t happy with the render, they should be able to keep tweaking it until it is right.  if not, you might consider a different jeweler.

    Also, are you going with yellow gold?  That will drastically change the look of the ring so if you want the look of the de novo you might think about white gold.  It’s going to make the overall ring much brighter.

    Darling Husband and I are CAD certified, so I have lots of CAD renders- the ring should look almost exactly similar.  The program cuts the wax, and that render is made from the vectors that determine the actual cutting.  It should look the same!

    Oh- I see- the ones from your jeweler just look a little off.  Hmm.  Like he did a poor job cropping them or something :/

    Where I’m getting my band made, they showed me pictures of previous custom designs, step by step.  So the sketch, then the CAD, then the wax, then the ring.  That has helped me sort of gauge the 2D moving into 3D.  Maybe your jeweler can show you some other projects as samples?
