A CUSTOM ENGAGEMENT RING: LIKE HER, ONE OF A KIND
There are probably thousands of different engagement rings available to you within a few miles of your home. Jewelry stores and even large general retail stores have counters sprinkled with hundreds of choices. That may be fine for most people, but your love is different. It’s unique. You want something that expresses your commitment in a way no one else can express it. You want to create your own custom engagement ring. Yes, it will take a bit more time, and more creativity on your part. But the last thing you want is to present your intended with a ring, only to realize that she’s seen is somewhere before – or, even worse, on someone else’s hand!
Where To Begin
Before engaging the jeweler in creating a custom engagement ring, the buyer should study the basics of different metals as well as study their settings and diamond quality, which should necessarily include cut, carat, clarity and color in order to get familiar with the qualities of diamonds in order to accentuate the stone. There are many different methods that can be applied to make a custom engagement ring and these include anything from simple substitutions to full-scale individual designs that will enhance the person’s individual personality.
You Call The Shots: It's Your Ring
The process of creating a custom engagement ring can be difficult as well as time consuming, even though there are many processes to choose from. In any case, one needs to find a jeweler who is suitable enough to make the engagement ring, and in addition, one must know the cost, timing and documentation concerns with regard to making the custom engagement ring.
Not every jeweler can make a custom engagement ring and places like chain stores are only capable of doing minor changes. Designer stores and independent jewelers would be a better place to try. Whatever jeweler one chooses, it is necessary to see a sample of their work and verify their credentials before proceeding with creating a custom engagement ring.
The timing of how long it would take to make the custom engagement ring depends on the intricacy of design as well as how busy the jeweler is at that time and a custom engagement ring may take as much as a couple of weeks or even months, to complete. The cost of making the custom engagement ring is often more than for standard design engagement rings due to the fact that the jeweler has to hand craft each ring element, though compromising on these designs may help to lower the costs. At the time of purchasing the custom engagement ring, remember to get all the relevant documentation including gem authenticity certificates.
