Choosing a Bespoke Engagement Ring

A bespoke ring might be the best choice for you if you are having trouble finding the right engagement ring. A custom engagement ring allows you to make something unique that is as personal as your love story.
These are our top tips after creating thousands of bespoke engagement ring over the years.

1. Create a vision of the design you want to achieve

Your jeweller will be your partner in the creation of a custom-made engagement ring. It is helpful to have an idea of what you want the ring to look like before starting the process. To help visualize the elements you want to include in your engagement ring, it is helpful to send images and sketches to your jeweler.

2. Choose a Center Stone

A good jeweler will help you design a piece that highlights the center stone to maximize its beauty. You can choose from diamonds, sapphires and emeralds. Make sure to tell your jeweler what type of center stone you prefer.

We recommend that you learn the 4C’s (cut colour, clarity, clarity, and carat weight) to help you understand the quality of diamonds and which factors are most crucial.

3. The Shape of the Center Stone

The shape of the centre stone can have a significant impact on the overall appearance and feel of an engagement ring. It is a good idea to narrow down your top choices for center stones before you meet with your jeweller. They can help you decide the pros and cons of each shape.

Consider the visual aspects of different stone shapes. Do you prefer the traditional look of a round bright cut center stone, the straight lines of an emerald-cut stone, or the soft organic curves and angles of an oval?

4. Establish a budget

Your jeweller will help you to discuss your budget when designing your bespoke engagement rings. Your jeweller can help you to understand the pros and cons of each design and make a piece that fits your budget.

It is important that you understand that there is no limit on how much you can spend for an engagement ring. This is why it is easier for the jewellers to make a piece that suits you.

5. Take into account your wedding ring

You’re likely to get married if you are in the process or designing your engagement ring. It’s a good idea to design your wedding ring ahead of your engagement ring so that they can be used together as a complete bridal set.

Keep in mind that you can remove your engagement ring to do other things. The wedding ring should also look great on its own.

If you are unsure about the design of your wedding ring and wish to delay designing it, your jeweller can help. This means that an engagement ring will fit flush with your wedding ring without any gaps or kinks.

6. Select a metal

Platinum and 18ct gold are the most common precious metals used for engagement rings. Rose gold is a unique choice, especially if you have your ring made by a professional. We recommend looking at their jewellery collection to help you choose the right metal. This will give you an idea of what look they like, if their collection is dominated by one colour.

7. Keep a time frame in mind

A custom-made engagement ring is more difficult than a pre-made one. To ensure they understand your vision, you will need to spend time with the jeweler.

Once you have approved the design and selected the center stone, we aim to manufacture and deliver your custom engagement ring within two weeks.

8. Select a skilled and reputable jeweller

It is important that you choose a jeweller who has the ability to create the ring of your dreams. To ensure the highest quality, choose a jeweller with extensive experience in custom-made pieces. Also, make sure to look at past work. It is important that the bespoke engagement rings you choose match your vision. They must also be strong and durable enough to last a lifetime.
