When Should You Consider a Custom Engagement Ring
There’s nothing more special than having a piece of jewelry that’s unique to you. Your engagement ring is obviously no exception. Though there are plenty of ready-made designs that will make you swoon, there are some instances where you may want to go the custom route. If you’re on the fence about whether you should get a custom ring or not, here are a few situations in which we encourage you to craft your own.
- When you can’t find the ring you have been dreaming of
This one is probably the most obvious. You’ve looked high and low, but no matter how many magazine, websites and Pinterest boards you’ve scoured you just can’t find the perfect one. That’s a good indication that you should go ahead and consider building one yourself.
- When he suggests you choose your engagement ring
Though the majority of women still like to be surprised by their rings on proposal day, some guys go the nontraditional route and pop the question without a ring so they can shop together. If he’s asking you to pick your ring anyway, why no go the custom route? Often times, when we receive a call about custom rings, it’s because men have suggested the ladies pick their own design. So take advantage and get everything you’ve ever wanted.
- When an heirloom stone is involved
If you or your partner have heirloom jewelry, going custom is the perfect option to incorporate those precious elements. They hold immense significance, whether you have mother’s ring or one passed down for several generations. Why not house it in something special? Design a work of art around it to make it even more special. This is also a great way to combine different elements of various heirloom jewelry pieces. For example, if your mother had a band with rubies and your dad had one with a diamond, you can melt and combine the gold of both and incorporate all the stones into one unique, new piece that holds a world of significance.
- When you want to unleash the inner designer in you
If you’re the creative type, a custom ring is for you! Many of our clients come to us with their paper sketches and we use computer-aided design to make a 3D model to show them before fully bringing it to life. That’s the beauty of custom — you can accommodate a range of design desires. Sketch away and watch it become reality.
- When you want to add “personal touches” to the ring
More and more couples are infusing their individual style into their rings. If you and your partner want to incorporate personal touches like your birthstones into the ring, we can tuck them into ring shank inconspicuously to create a charming, meaningful display — something you can’t do with a ready-made ring. If you want to add extra special significance to your piece, go custom.
- When you simply want to stand out
Sometimes the only reason you need to design your own ring is to have something that no one else has. These pieces are meant to shine and exhibit your personality, and if there’s any piece you should make absolutely perfect, it’s the one you’ll be wearing day in and day out. We understand this desire and want to help you celebrate your individuality with a custom engagement ring!
