What are the benefits of creating your own engagement ring?
From the type of ring you want, the stone/s you want to include, the size and the overall ring design. The world is literally your oyster compared to other retailers that have a set number of rings in their collection.
It’s good value
Many people believe that custom designing your own ring is expensive and time prohibitive, but that is simply not the case. It’s often more cost-effective to design your own ring as the jeweller will break down the costs of the gemstones and the design and craftsmanship which will go in to making your ring. With traditional retailers, you are paying massively inflated prices when buying engagement rings from certain famous jewellery brands.
It’s a romantic experience
When a couple have just got engaged and decide to spend the rest of their life together, creating the ring together becomes a memorable experience and the couple learn a lot about jewellery, design, gemstones which lays the foundations for future jewellery purchases.
You become a jewellery guru in the making!
The jeweller will take the couple through a step-by-step process and will guide them during key stages e.g choosing the gemstone; designing the ring and its mount and so on. Hancocks says “the clients gets wholly immersed in the process and academia behind the gems and understand where their hard earned money is being spent.”
It’s the ultimate luxury
From sourcing of the right stone(s) and having your own design drawn for you right through to having an expert craftsman work on your ring by hand for up to eight weeks means the end ring is yours and yours alone. It’s not one of many from a chosen range and it is quite unique. Creating a piece of bespoke jewellery is often said to be the ultimate form of luxury.
