Tips To Design Your Engagement Ring

So you'd like to go the custom route, instead of shopping a ready-made option. There are countless ideas to comb through, so get started with these four tips to design your engagement ring:

1. Start By Choosing The Perfect Metal

It's all about the metal when it comes to engagement rings.

Think about it -- do you want to go with gold, white gold, rose gold, platinum or another kind of metal?

The sooner you figure out this decision for your custom engagement ring, the easier it'll be to plan it out perfectly.

You will work side by side with jewelers to get every detail down, but this is after deciding on the dealbreakers, such as which metal it's crafted with. Think about what looks great and what personal preference you have, then move forward.

2. Plan Far Ahead And Have A Budget

There's no right or wrong price for an engagement ring, but the sooner you figure out how much you're willing to pay, the better.

Once you have a budget, you can figure out what features you want, which also dictate how long it'll take to make the ring.

Plan far in advance so that you're guaranteed to have the ring back when it's time to pop the question. Give yourself as much time as possible to account for any setbacks in the schedule.

3. Shadow Some Jewelers To Get A Feel For Their Style

It's important to get inspiration from the experts when you're looking to design a custom ring.

You can check into the portfolio of engagement ring jewelers that you trust. If you find that you like their style, feel free to borrow some of their nuances or ask them if they can help you with the design.

The more ideas you get the more you'll be able to see what's possible in terms of designing a custom ring.

4. Add Some Thoughtful Touches

Finally, make sure that you add little touches that make this ring 100% unique.

In addition to picking things like the cut, clarity, and color of the diamond, consider including a personally engraved message, date or symbol that means something to the two of you.

You may also want to choose colors that are symbolic.

Regardless, do everything you can to put thought into this design so that it's perfect for your bride to be.
