If the rings that you have looked at in the jewelry store are just not what you are looking for in an engagement ring, you may want to consider working with a jeweler to create a custom engagement ring. A custom engagement ring will allow you to create the perfect ring that you or your spouse will love to wear for the rest of your life.
Remember the Process Takes Time
First, you need to remember the process of creating a custom ring is going to take time. You can't just stroll into a shop and purchase a ring and propose with it the next day. With a custom design engagement ring, you need to give yourself a few months for the ring creation process.
First, you are going to have an initial design consultation with the jeweler. This is where you share your ideas, and make sure you feel a connection to the jeweler who is going to design your ring. After the initial design consultation, the jeweler is going to sketch out the design, and followed by a computer rending. Then there is the actual process of creating the ring.
This process could take as little as six weeks, or as long as a few months.
Determine Your Budget
Second, you need to figure out what your budget is for creating a custom ring. When you go to a jewelry store, you can look at the sticker price and just see how much the ring will cost. With a designer ring, the process is much different. It is best if you go to the jeweler and already have a budget in mind. Then the jeweler can work with your budget and help you choose the right stones and the right metal to create a ring that you like and that fits within your budget. You may need to make some compromises on the overall design of the ring in order to get it to fit in your budget. You should be prepared to pay for a custom ring as you are not just paying for the stones and metal, you are paying for someone to create a special ring for you.
Select the Jeweler with Care
Finally, you need to select the jeweler who will make your ring with care. You want to find someone who understands your vision and who you feel make your vision come true. You want someone who will take your ideas into consideration, and whose work you like
When it comes to creating a custom engagement ring, remember the process takes time, and
