How to Make Your Engagement Ring Unique
Each and every love story is special and unique – and that is why your engagement ring should be one-of-a-kind as well! Whether you want to propose with a standout statement piece or a ring that is subtly different, check out some of our ideas here for inspiration.
A shade of diamond: Diamonds continue to be the most popular stones in engagement rings. If you are hoping to take your ring to a new level of uniqueness, then consider a diamond that is a fancy color. Some examples are diamonds that are yellow, gray or purple. Diamonds that have color will cost more than the typical colorless diamonds.
Beyond a diamond: Cutting out a diamond as the center stone can really amp up your engagement ring’s unique factor. You can choose from a variety of gemstones in so many colors and shades. Sapphires, rubies and emeralds all make special center stones that will elevate the look of your ring.
A mix of metals: You can also add a touch of character to your ring by opting for some sort of mix of gold, silver and platinum. This idea is a wonderful way to customize your ring without having it be too crazy. If your loved one would appreciate a subtle touch of specialness, then this tip is for you!
A pop of color: Another subtle avenue to uniqueness is adding a small gemstone that is blended in with the design. It can add just a touch of color among the diamonds. You can consider adding this on the inside of the ring as well. This secret stash of color will truly make your ring unique.
Our Process is Unique to You
Customizing an engagement ring does not need to be stressful. At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, we will walk you through and help you put together a truly special ring when you are ready to pop the question. Our team will have a conversation to capture your love story that will inspire the ring and design. We will listen to any details about how you met or what captured your eye. If you have any pictures or your own sketches for inspiration, we will want to see these to help guide us.
After our conversation, we will put our ideas down on paper with an initial sketch. This will outline the design in detail. You will offer any changes and we won’t move on until you are happy with our sketches. A wax carving will help you see your love story come to life. Casting and fabrication are often completed by hand as that is another way to ensure that your ring is special and unique. The setting of your stones is the final step before you have your ring in hand.
