Design A Custom Engagement Ring

For this once in a lifetime opportunity you have the chance to design your own engagement ring. Not only do you have more choices, but this will be a very special gift for that person you will be spending the rest of your life with.

Some people think cost is what dictates how special an engagement rings value is, but don't be fooled by price, you can design a beautiful engagement ring on a budget if you know how. In most cases money is a consideration and designing your own ring can be the best choice for you.

There are four elements to the ring:

  1. Stone
  2. Cut
  3. Setting
  4. Metal

One of the advantages of designing your own engagement ring is the combinations. Some of the online jewelers offer software you can use to mix and match different components, view the virtual ring and then interchange elements as desired. 

This saves you trips to the store, having to look at jewelry you don't like and the pressures from salespeople. Design and build your own engagement ring at home, then go to the jewelers to see what products match what you designed.

  • Round
  • Oval Baguette
  • Square
  • Pear Cut
  • Emerald Cut

  • Diamonds
  • Zirconium
  • Moissanite

As far as metals the two most popular are gold and platinum. So you see, this will require a little education if you want to do it right. It is well worth it cost wise and you know she will appreciate the time you took to make this a uniquely special engagement ring for her.
