Bespoke Engagement Rings

What is a Bespoke Engagement Ring?

A bespoke engagement ring is your love story, set in metal and stone. It’s a ring designed specifically for you, capturing your unique story and style. No two rings are the same because no two love stories are the same.

Why choose a Bespoke Engagement Ring?

A bespoke engagement ring is so more than just a piece of jewellery; it’s a physical representation of your unique love story.
Creating bespoke engagement ring is about crafting a unique ring that’s exclusively yours, reflecting your personal journey and individual style.

The Essence of Individuality in Design

In a bespoke engagement ring, every detail, from the choice of gold or platinum to the selection of diamonds or sapphire, is tailored to your personal style and preferences.
This customisation ensures that your ring is not only beautiful but also meets your design choice and fits within your budget.

The Bespoke Engagement Ring Journey from Concept to Creation

The process of creating a bespoke engagement ring is a collaborative adventure. It starts with your vision and ideas, which are then transformed by skilled craftsmanship into a stunning piece of art. This journey is as unique as the ring itself, filled with opportunities for personal expression.

Celebrating Unique Love Stories

Every bespoke engagement ring tells a story – your story. It's a celebration of the moments, memories, and milestones that define your relationship. This ring is a symbol of your unique journey together, a journey that deserves to be celebrated with a ring just as special.

Is a Bespoke Engagement Ring more expensive?

It's a common myth that bespoke means more expensive. But in reality, designing a bespoke engagement ring allows you to control your costs by choosing materials and designs that fit within your budget.

Tailoring to Your Budget

The beauty of a bespoke ring is in its flexibility. You can decide on every aspect, from the type of metal to the size and quality of the gemstone, ensuring the final piece aligns with what you're comfortable spending.

Value Beyond Price

With bespoke diamond rings, you're investing in a piece that's uniquely yours. It's not just about the price tag; it's about the value of having an engagement ring that truly represents your relationship and will be cherished for a lifetime.

Transparent Pricing

When you choose to go bespoke, there are no hidden costs or surprises.
At Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery I provide my design service completely free of charge, so you’ll be surprised to discover that you can create something completely unique at a comparable cost to buying a ready made engagement ring.

You're involved in every step of the process, from initial design to final creation, ensuring that you know exactly where your money is going. This also means that you can use more of your budget for the things that are important to you. Whether you want the perfect diamond, or a chunky gold band on your engagement ring, it’s completely up to you.


So what is the process of designing your own Engagement Ring?

Here’s how we make your dream ring a reality:

Share Your Vision

The first step is all about your ideas and inspirations. Whether you have a clear picture in mind or a collection of concepts, share them with me. Let’s have a chat over the phone, by video call, or as a lot of my clients prefer, via WhatsApp.

Together, we’ll explore styles from modern diamond engagement rings to alternative engagement rings UK lovers are drawn to.

Selecting the Perfect Stone

Whether you're drawn to the sparkle of diamonds or something more colourful like sapphires and other gemstones, selecting the right stone is a key part of your ring's design. I’d love to help you discover the best gemstones for your design, discussing their meanings, qualities, and how they fit into your design.

Crafting the Design

Once we have your vision and the perfect stone, it’s time to craft the design. I'll sketch out designs, translate into CAD images and tweak them based on your feedback, and ensure every detail resonates with your personal style.

Bringing Your Ring to Life

With the design finalised, it's time to bring your ring to life. This is where the magic happens – in the hands of skilled goldsmiths in The Jewellery Quarter. I'll keep you updated at every stage, ensuring the final piece is as perfect as you imagined.

How long does it take to make a Custom Engagement Ring?

Once you are happy with the design of your ring it usually takes around 4-5 weeks for your bespoke ring to be completed. The workshop does sometimes have some express slots for times when you need your ring a little faster. This depends on current workload, so please speak to me and I can check on timescales for you.

Choosing a Gemstone for Your Custom Engagement Ring

Natural Diamond Engagement Rings: A Timeless Choice

When it comes to choosing a gemstone for your unusual engagement ring, diamonds remain a timeless favourite. Their durability and sparkle make them an ideal choice for an engagement ring. Whether you're drawn to a traditional round brilliant cut or prefer a more unique kite or half moon shape, each diamond tells its own story.
I’m always happy to scour my worldwide network to find you the diamond you’ve been dreaming of for your natural diamond engagement ring.

Sapphire Engagement Rings: A Spectrum of Colours

Sapphires, with their wide range of amazing colours, offer a great alternative to traditional diamond rings. From the deep, oceanic blues to the vibrant pinks and striking yellows, sapphire engagement rings are a perfect option, no matter the shade you’re looking for. Whether you're considering a teal sapphire engagement ring or a unique parti-sapphire engagement ring, each colour and shade brings its own personality and charm to your bespoke ring design.

Step Cut Engagement Rings: Elegance Redefined

The most popular step cut diamond is an emerald cut. A sophisticated choice for those who appreciate clean lines and understated elegance. Known for its elongated, rectangular shape and step-cut facets, emerald-cut engagement rings offer a different kind of sparkle – one that is more subtle yet equally captivating. This cut not only highlights the clarity of the stone but also creates a mirror-like effect that is both modern and timeless. Whether set in a simple solitaire or a more elaborate setting, an emerald-cut engagement ring is a statement of elegance and refinement. Step Cut Diamonds can also be found in other shapes such as a step cut oval diamond which I loved for this unusual solitaire ring.

How to Know What Type of Engagement Ring You Want

What is a Solitaire Engagement Ring?

The solitaire is the quintessential classic when it comes to engagement rings. Characterised by a single diamond or gemstone set in a simple and elegant band, solitaire engagement rings put the focus squarely on the stone, allowing it to truly shine. This style is perfect for those who appreciate timeless simplicity and understated beauty.

The Charm of Halo Engagement Rings

Halo engagement rings feature a central stone surrounded by a 'halo' of smaller diamonds or gemstones. This setting not only enhances the ring's sparkle but also gives the illusion of a larger centre stone. It's a popular choice for those seeking a blend of glamour and sophistication.

What is a Cluster Engagement Ring?

Cluster engagement rings are a stunning choice for those who love a bit of drama. In this style, smaller diamonds or gemstones are set closely together to create the appearance of a larger stone. Cluster rings can come in various shapes and configurations, offering a unique, eye-catching alternative to traditional single-stone designs. Cluster rings are a perfect way to get a large engagement ring on a limited budget, as smaller diamonds grouped together look impressive but cost much less than one large stone.

Discovering Contemporary and Unusual Rings

For the trendsetters and style enthusiasts, contemporary and unusual engagement rings provide an opportunity to make a bold statement. These rings often feature unique shapes, innovative settings, and unconventional designs, perfect for those who want to stand out from the crowd.
