Build Something Beautiful
At the start of your new life as a couple, building a custom engagement ring demonstrates your commitment to build something new together. Just as you construct your ring and select the elements you most desire, from the diamond to the metal to the setting, you create a foundation to explore, try something new, and start an adventure side by side with your partner's love and support. A custom ring is a symbolic testament to those sentiments that will endure forever. Whether you or your spouse-to-be chooses the design for a custom engagement ring or you embark on the journey together, you're sure to have built something special at the end of the day.
The Diamond for You
Not all diamonds are created equal. When choosing a diamond for your custom engagement ring, there are many factors at play. Deciding and prioritizing your wishes for your ring is important to establish beforehand, as it will guide the ring design. Cut, color, clarity, and carat are all key components to consider when selecting a diamond. A smaller diamond that's priced the same as a larger diamond will be higher quality and showcase a brighter rainbow of colors. Larger diamonds are stunning from a distance but more likely to have microscopic flaws that alter their clarity and may have an undesirable color despite being a higher carat weight. Finding the right balance between quality and size will ultimately depend on your budget and your priorities, but keep in mind, there is no wrong diamond!
The Setting Style
Aside from the actual diamond, choosing and designing a setting style is where the real fun begins when creating a custom engagement ring. Bezel style, halo settings, simple solitaire rings, and split shank bands can all take a round brilliant diamond and turn it into a work of art. Your band may be filigree, pave, channel, or flat, among others. The ring and the diamond inform each other; when choosing a diamond, make sure it will work in the style of setting you want, and vice versa. Your local jeweler can help you make an informed decision and walk through possible designs for your custom band before starting design sessions. At Jon's Fine Jewelry in the Rockledge area, we have experienced professionals to help you choose what makes the most sense for you, your style, and your diamond.
Revamp your Setting
Perhaps you inherited your grandmother's ring, but the design is a little dated, and you're not sure your bride-to-be will appreciate the ring itself even if she loves the sentiment. Reset a family heirloom and turn it into something new again with a custom engagement ring. Using the dimensions of the existing diamond, create a stunning ring by replacing the band in a new style and adding supplementary stones, turning a plain solitaire ring into a sparkling halo setting, or simplifying an existing design by taking small exterior diamonds and turning them into a pave band, setting the diamonds into metal so the band is “paved” with tiny diamond bricks. Maintain sentimentality while creating something truly unique to you and your love story at Jon's Fine Jewelry in the Rockledge area.
