Your Guide to Buying Custom Engagement Rings

If you’ve been looking for an engagement ring, then you have probably come across thousands of different bespoke jewellery options. This can be a good thing for most people, but then again, some would also find it difficult to decide if presented with so many selections.

So if you still haven't found the perfect ring after browsing the web and visiting boutiques, you might want want to consider another route. Here's an idea: why not inquire a professional jeweller and explore the option of custom engagement rings! This guarantees a unique ring like no one else’s.

Here's a quick guide to some of the most important things you should do when you're buying bespoke engagement rings:

Know the size.

Knowing your partner's ring size is probably is the easiest thing to accomplish. Simply borrow one of the rings she already own and bring it to a jeweller to have it sized. If you can't get it yourself, just ask your partner's mom or sibling, and they will be more than happy to help.

Pick a particular style.

You have infinite options when choosing an engagement ring style: vintage, classic, edgy, modern, and so much more.

But the question is, how do you determine the right style? The deep web can be your best friend. Aside from that, also notice the kind of clothes she wears. Does she go for a comfy, laid-back look or is she a fashionista? How about the type of décor she likes? Is it minimalist, traditional, or contemporary? You can also ask her friends to share some images of bespoke jewellery she may have shared with them in the past.

Choose the diamond shape.

Expect your jeweller of choice to ask about the diamond shape you want to go for, as this will help determine the overall design of the engagement ring. There are various choices: round, oval, square, marquise, pear, heart, and many more.

Try to get an insight into what type of stone shape she likes by looking at her favourite jewellery. If they seem random, just remember that you can incorporate various shapes into the ring design and add a halo setting for an elegant touch.

Select the stones and metals.

White gold and platinum rings with colourless diamonds are a classic choice when it comes to engagement rings. But you don't have to limit your choices between those two because there's still a lot of options available.

Metals: Yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, silver, platinum, or two-tone combinations are only some of your options.

Diamonds: As mentioned earlier, colourless diamonds will always be the standard choice, but if you want to explore and experiment, then definitely consider coloured diamonds. These can be used as a centre stone or just as side stones, but they can certainly enhance the look (and the value) of the ring.

Ask the custom jeweller about the timeline.

If you’re planning to propose on a particular day, you should know when you can get the ring from the jeweller. Bear in minds that it usually takes around two weeks to create a custom ring with just a simple design. So if you opted to go for a more complex design, then it can take around four to six weeks or even longer.

The wide variety of engagement rings can sometimes be a blessing or a curse. The solution? Opt for custom made custom engagement rings and help design the perfect ring for your future fiancée!
