Traditional Craftsmanship Meets State-of-the-Art Technology
At acredo, every ring is fully custom-designed specifically for each person’s individual style, tastes, budget, and creativity. Your custom acredo jewelry is created with only the highest-quality materials, processes, and precise craftsmanship. Most importantly, it represents deep emotion. Jewelry is a token of love, a symbol of loyalty and the bliss that forges an intimate bond between two people. It is precisely this symbolism that also inspires our staff in their work.
The process of creating your perfect ring begins at our relaxed, spacious Denver lounge. After selecting your favorite style elements from a thousand samples that you can touch and try on, we utilize 3D computer-assisted design software to see exactly what your design will look like. Your perfect piece of jewelry is crafted in virtual reality and modified before your eyes, with pricing for all the options transparent throughout the process. In addition to style, we specialize in designing a wedding band with the ideal fit, gems, finish, and width for your finger. At acredo, we unite tradition with modern technology – not only in the custom design but also in the production processes. Your unique rings are manufactured by combining state-of-the-art production technology with the traditional goldsmith’s art. Excellent workmanship and the best materials are of paramount importance at acredo for us to create rings that will last an eternity.
Our production at acredo works with the “best-in-class principle.” That is, the highest current performance level in our industry is used as the standard or benchmark to be equaled or exceeded. To do this, we mix and melt over 30 precious metals at our manufacturer in Germany. The individual components of each alloy are melted under intense heat. Our passionate and innovative casters mix yellow, white, grey, rose, red and green gold alloys. The alloys range from several purities and colors of gold to palladium and platinum.
We love diamonds! Diamonds are traded internationally and we only select the best ethically sourced gems available, while still having the most competitive prices on the market. Only Colorless or Near Colorless diamonds are chosen by acredo for use in our bands. We also only select diamonds that have small, very small or no visible inclusions under 10x magnification. Our diamond cut grade standards at acredo are even more uncompromising – after all, an excellent cut will make your diamond truly sparkle! All diamonds with a weight of 0.30 carat and larger come with a diamond grading report (certificate) from the Gemological Institute of America. GIA developed the 4C’s of diamond grading; Color, Clarity, Carat, and Cut and is the world’s most trusted name in diamond grading and identification. For a unique look, our acredo bands are available set with black, yellow, cognac, ice blue, ocean blue, sky blue, apple green, and cherry red HTHP enhanced diamonds.
We also love colored gems! Sapphires and rubies are both color variations of the mineral corundum, and provide a durable splash of color for your design. On the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, corundum has a hardness of 9 and is the second hardest mineral after diamonds. Modern technology allows us to commission perfectly matched sapphires and rubies for our acredo bands. Bright red rubies and sapphire colors of light blue, royal blue, light pink, purplish-pink, yellow, and orangish-yellow are precision faceted to sparkle beautifully in your ring.
For the most romantic finishing touch, acredo offers you endless possibilities for engraving. The classic option is your wedding date and name of your partner on the ring’s inside. If you’re highly creative, we can engrave the inside or outside of the band with your own drawing, the skyline of your favorite city, fingerprints, handprints, pet’s paw print, or a message of love.
