Do you think that custom engagement rings are only for rich celebrities or couples with wacky interests (like Star Wars or Lord of the Rings-themed engagement rings, for example)? Well, don’t believe that for a second because here at Diamond Mansion, we have beautiful AND affordable rings that you can design yourself. Custom engagement rings make it easy to put a personal touch into something that will be on your finger forever. By selecting the elements you want to include, it is unlike anyone else’s. Perhaps you’ve been shopping for premade rings but haven’t found exactly what you want. You like the cut of one ring but want the different setting of another ring. No more!
First of all, don’t stress out too much. The fact that you are customizing it yourself means that you will get exactly what you want. And don’t think that just because you’re not a professional ring designer, doesn’t mean that this isn’t an easy process. We work with you every step of the way so that you feel good about the ring you have made.
Before starting out, you should do some ground-work, though, by getting some idea of what you want. Look up the trends in rings, but don’t think that you have to stick to them. It might not be right for you and just because it is on trend now doesn’t mean that you’ll feel the same years down the line.
Now onto the actual ring! One of the first steps of outfitting the canvas that is your finger is to pick a color! Most people go with a white diamond, if you want the absolute best glimmer and shine. But—as this is your work of art—why not be daring? We also offer different colors like gold and black to make it truly unique to you!
Now try to pick out a diamond shape. Do you prefer traditionally oval or perfectly round diamonds? If you stick with the traditional rounder shape, then there will always be a great deal of options for you! This is indeed the most popular, but might we suggest square cut for the modern bride. There are just as many options to choose from there. Overall, there are many styles: princess, cushion cut, heart…etc. We can help get you started.
The last piece of the puzzle is what kind of band you would like to set the diamond on. Always pay attention to if you have any allergies. Test out metals on your skin. These rings are meant to be on your finger for a long time and you never want to be irritated or have your skin turn a different color. Don’t take this part lightly.
However, the color of the band is quite fun to pick out! We can tell you that silver goes with practically everything, however, gold is a very nice and traditional touch. When choosing the band material and color, keep in mind how it’d look with your skin tone, whether or not it complements other items of your jewelry and what looks the best with the cut you have selected. Once again, everything is up to you!
