How do you design your own ring?

Choosing an engagement ring is no easy task. Even with experts’ tips, finding the perfect ring to give to your partner is a huge challenge. Choosing a bespoke ring entails its own challenges. These tips on how to design your own tailor-made engagement ring will certainly get you off to a flying start.

Tip 1: Give yourself plenty of time

A unique design can be complex and, as such, time-consuming. So, make sure you go to the diamond expert in plenty of time to ensure the tailor-made engagement ring will definitely be ready before the big day. The following tips will smoothly guide you through the process, resulting in the perfect, individual engagement ring at the right time.

Tip 2: Do your research

It is a great idea to show your jeweller drawings and photos you have found online. Of course, you will then need to flesh out the details. Spend time considering the desired shape and style of the diamond(s) as they determine the tailor-made engagement ring’s appearance. If you can, choose a diamond shape that reflects the personality and preferred style of the wearer. Classic types usually opt for a brilliant shape, whereas creative types prefer an oval diamond. Nowadays, many people use a Pinterest board or even an Instagram account to save engagement ring designs they like. You could take a sneaky peek without arousing your partner’s suspicion.

Also, consider whether you would like several diamonds. Or, perhaps the idea of coloured diamonds or precious stones appeals to you?

Precious metals

Important tip: quality is paramount. 18-carat gold, irrespective of the alloy colour, is always advised. This is the highest possible standard for jewellery. Is your fiancée sensitive to jewellery? If so, opt for hypoallergenic 950 platinum, a precious metal that is even rarer and more sustainable than gold, so it is also a little more expensive.
Women who say they don't don’t love diamonds, are women who do not own diamonds.

Precious stones

A stone with minimum H colour and SI1 clarity is the recommended choice for the diamond.  For this, take a look at the 4C’s. As far as the carat weight is concerned, you are probably best off first deciding whether you want to design an engagement ring with 1 diamond, with 2 diamonds, with 3 diamonds or more. Or, perhaps you would prefer coloured diamonds or precious stones? The choice is yours.

What if you prefer a tailor-made engagement ring without diamonds?

An engagement ring is usually defined as having a precious stone. But if you would prefer to design an engagement ring without diamonds, there are alternatives. Why not choose a different impressive precious stone, such as ruby, sapphire or emerald?

Tip 3: Find out her ring size in plenty of time

By now, you have discovered her favourite ring designs, have selected the perfect materials and have made an appointment with your jeweller in plenty of time. All you now have left to do before the production process begins is find out her ring size.

What does the production process of a personally designed engagement ring entail?

Making a tailor-made engagement ring starts with a realistic 3D model of the final result. Following your approval of the 3D model, experienced craftspeople will start work using traditional methods. The final result is unique! You can also engrave the engagement ring with a personal message.

What if you would prefer to have an existing design personalised?

When designing a tailor-made engagement ring, you do not have to start from scratch. If your eye falls upon one from the existing collection of engagement rings, you can have the ring adjusted to suit your taste. For example, you could alter the size or cut of the diamonds, enhance their quality or replace them with other precious stones.
