Now that you have decided that you are going to pop the question, you need to find the perfect ring for your partner. Buying an engagement ring is an exciting adventure, even more so if you decide to design a custom solitaire ring. Making your own design is the best way to make sure you create a truly unique ring that will perfectly symbolise your relationship. BAUNAT lists a couple of things you need to look for when you are about to create a custom solitaire ring.
- Do some market research
- Understand your personal style
- See if you could use personal heirlooms
Do some market research
Research is very important for you to identify what types of designs and styles you like. To understand whether you are leaning towards a subtle and traditional solitaire ring or if you wish something a little more flamboyant and out-of-the-ordinary. Have a look at various ring styles, browse the internet for ideas and visit vintage markets for inspiration. Doing some research is really helpful to guide you in your choices, especially if it is the first time you are buying a custom solitaire ring.
Understand your personal style
Before you start anything, you need to understand your personal style as well as that of your partner to pick the best ring that symbolises your couple. It would be helpful if you visit your jeweller with images of what inspires you and eventually photos of holidays and objects that hold a particular meaning to you. Furthermore, bringing photos of other pieces of jewellery that you have particularly liked can also be helpful for the jeweller before they start designing the ring.
See if you could use personal heirlooms
Personal heirlooms are a great idea if you wish to combine old and new by incorporating a piece of jewellery that you were gifted by your family with a new design. Using heirloom jewellery enhances the sentimental value of a piece and makes it even more special. Furthermore, whether you decide to use only the gemstones or melt the gold of the ring, using heirloom jewellery is a good idea if you are slightly on a budget as it reduces the cost of materials.
