Designing Your Own Diamond Engagement Ring

Shopping for engagement rings is fun and exciting, but you may have a special design in mind that is not available. Did you know that you can design your own diamond engagement rings, and it is much easier than many people think? You do not have to be one of the “rich and famous” to have a design that is special and unique. In fact, there are several ways that you can create amazing rings, once you find a good online jeweller.


Start with a stone

Top jewellers have so many selections that they cannot show you all of them on one web page. For instance, you might want a princess or emerald cut stone for the ring, and you can begin there. You enjoy many selections including traditional round cut stones. After you select the perfect stone, it is time to choose the setting. This is an excellent way to have something that no one else owns.


You may want a three stone ring, and you will find a number of settings that go with your diamonds. Some people think that three stone rings must have square or rectangular stones, but just about any cut looks great with the right type of setting.


Start with setting


Perhaps you know what type of setting you want. You might want a wide classic setting for a single or solitaire stone. This may seem like a common setting but with more than ten different diamond cuts to choose from, you can create something unique. You can decide what kind of precious metal you want for the setting, too.


Custom design


If you want an engagement ring that is totally unique (that you created) your online jeweller is there to provide bespoke jewellery. Not only that, you have a great deal of help with the process.


To start, come up with some ideas or pictures of what you want. You also may wish to describe the ring setting and what type of precious metals you wish to use. It is also a good idea to choose the perfect diamond before you begin. This will help determine the best possible setting.


After your drawings and descriptions are complete, you can send them to your online jeweller. They will use the latest in computerized technology to make your creation come to life in three dimensional colour. Next, you will receive 3D images for approval. If you are not happy with the results, your jeweller is more than happy to make alterations to your specifications.


Wedding bands


When you are planning to design the perfect engagement ring, you should think about the wedding ring also. After all, they should be a matching set and having a custom made engagement ring with a standard wedding ring may not be the look you are going for. You also may want to design a matching wedding band for him. That will make your unique design even more distinctive and you could be the envy of all your friends.
