Make An Informed Decision

Now before you start dreaming up your perfect ring and avoiding the mistakes I’ve mentioned before, you need to understand the pros and cons of designing your own engagement ring.

Pros And Cons Of Choosing A Custom Design Engagement Ring

Pros and Benefits of Custom Design

  • We live in a modern world where engagement traditions have changed a bit. Nowadays, choosing to design a ring together as a couple has gained more and more popularity. This has opened the door to so many possibilities.
  • You can get a ring that fits your personality and preferences instead of getting stuck with a ring you’re not in love with.
  •  Also, the stress your fiancé has to endure to choose the PERFECT ring is alleviated as he can GET YOU EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT.
  • Your ring will be as unique as your love story and NO ONE WILL HAVE THE SAME RING. – Your relationship is unique, why should’t your ring be unique too?

Cons of Custom Design

  • Not all Jewellers are created equal. Most jewellers provide ‘custom’ services but can have some limitations to exactly what can be customized. Some jewellers don’t provide excellent quality custom engagement rings and in the end you are stuck with a ring you don’t like.
  • Sometimes this can be unpredictable as you don’t get to see, touch or feel the weight of the ring until it’s finished.
  • This can also be a timely process as the ring has to be made to your specifications. It’s not as instant as buying an already made ring.
