BENCHMARK LIFETIME GUARANTEE
Over 40 years ago in Turkey, H. Tosyali's passion for precious metals and gems inspired him to start a company to design and create fine wedding bands. In 1972 he and his wife Mrs. T moved to the United States and built the company now known as Benchmark. With him he brought the concept of the Comfort Fit band and successfully introduced it to the US marketplace. In our factory in Tuscaloosa, Alabama we manufacture some of the finest wedding bands in the world using the purest gold, the finest platinum, the most talented designers and the most skilled craftsmen. We utilize the latest technologies to insure a quality product each and every time.
Die Struck vs. Cast
All of our wedding bands are die struck. We start with a solid ring of gold or platinum and with meticulous carving, we have created the beautiful designs that you see here. The die struck method provides for a more consistent product, one with less porosity and more gold - a solid band throughout. Cast pieces are more prone to have voids within the metal which can occasionally lead to imperfections or breakage.
Every Benchmark Piece is backed by a Lifetime Guarantee that states:
1. If your ring is ever damaged during normal wear, Benchmark will repair or replace your wedding ring free of charge.
2. If your ring finger size ever changes, Benchmark will re-size or replace your wedding ring free of charge.
Over 30 years ago, Benchmark brought the Comfort Fit design to the United States and obtained a patent. The inside of our rings are oval shaped, eliminating the sharp edge against your finger, providing years of comfortable wear. Other companies have modified this design but ours is the original, true Comfort Fit.
Precision Set Diamonds
Over the years Benchmark has invested over $3,000,000 in the latest technologies to provide our customers with Precision Set diamonds. Only a handful of companies in the world employ this technology.
Throughout the centuries companies have set diamonds by hand. Hand setting diamonds can lead to inconsistencies and imperfections within your diamond ring. Benchmark has solved this problem through our Precision Set diamond ring line. Each diamond undergoes a stringent inspection judging color, cut, clarity and size. Only the finest, most precise diamonds selected. We have developed a process that allows us to set your diamonds by machine, insuring that your Benchmark ring will be perfect.
Perfect means that your diamonds will be safely secured within the piece. Your diamonds will be perfectly spaced and flush meaning that the table (the top of the diamonds) will be even with the top of the piece. Perfect also means that we will expose more of your diamonds by using only the necessary amount of metal to secure the diamond in place. Why should you hide any more of your diamonds than is absolutely necessary? Traditional hand setting generally uses more metal to secure your diamonds, thereby not exposing your enough of your beautiful diamonds.
Benchmark Precision Setting represents the next level for diamond wedding rings. We welcome you to be a part of our perfect world.
Our Quality Control Process insures that your wedding band will be of the highest quality. Each ring undergoes at least 5 Q.C. checks during the manufacturing process with a final check performed before it leaves our factory.
Our mission is to promptly manufacture the highest quality wedding bands and engagement rings in the industry, continuously focusing on satisfying our customers' needs and constantly striving to exceed their expectations. We will achieve this by maintaining practices that stress long-term relationships between our company and our customers, the integration of technology, human resources, and a strong commitment to helping our team members reach their full potential.
Benchmark was founded on three basic principles: Value our customers; love our team and satisfaction for a job well done. Teamwork is more than just a mission statement at Benchmark. It is a way of life that assures each customer individual attention at every level. Our team makes a commitment to you.
There is a passion derived from knowing that as a company, we make products that touch so many lives. Few industries can offer products that elicit such love that represents a lifetime commitment.
