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.

What is a Bespoke Engagement Ring?

A bespoke engagement ring is more than just a piece of jewellery; it’s a tangible representation of your unique love story, meticulously crafted to reflect your individual journey. It’s about bringing your personal narrative to life through a ring that’s exclusively yours.

The Essence of Individuality in Design

In a bespoke engagement ring, every detail, from the choice of metal to the selection of stones, is tailored to resonate with your personal style and preferences. This customization ensures that your ring is not only beautiful but also deeply meaningful.

The 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 budget by choosing materials and designs that align with your financial plans.

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. 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, it’s completely up to you.

 

How do you design 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. 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 traditional sparkle of diamonds or the colourful allure of sapphires and other gemstones, selecting the right stone is a key part of your ring's design. We'll dive into the world of gemstones, 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. This is where creativity meets expertise. 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 the 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 custom engagement ring, diamonds remain a timeless favourite. Their durability and classic beauty make them an ideal choice for an engagement ring. Whether you're drawn to a traditional round brilliant cut or prefer a more unique marquise or pear shape, each diamond tells its own story. Let's explore the world of natural diamond engagement rings together, finding the perfect diamond that resonates with your personal style.

Sapphire Engagement Rings: A Spectrum of Colours

Sapphires, with their wide range of captivating hues, offer a splendid alternative to traditional diamond rings. From the deep, oceanic blues to the vibrant pinks and striking yellows, sapphire engagement rings allow for a unique expression of love. Whether you're considering a teal sapphire engagement ring or a romantic pink sapphire, each colour and shade brings its own personality and charm to your bespoke ring design.

Emerald Cut Engagement Rings: Elegance Redefined

The emerald cut is 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.

Choosing a Gemstone for Your Custom Engagement Ring

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.
