The thought of designing a ring yourself might sound daunting but designing the perfect engagement ring doesn’t need to be complicated, but it’s something you’ll need to put effort into. Following a few specific steps is vital to this process, with three of them standing out from the rest. Keep reading below for some tips of designing the perfect engagement ring that is totally unique.

Designing The Perfect Engagement Ring: 3 Top Steps

1. Know the Shape You Want

Diamonds and other stones for engagement rings come in quite a few different shapes and sizes. You’ll need to know what these are so you can figure out exactly what you want. One of the more obvious of these is a round cut, but there’s always the likes of a princess cut, pear, and more than a few others.

Spend time looking through these and figuring out exactly which one you like. While this takes a bit of effort, there’s no reason not to put the work into it. At this point it is also worth considering the type of work your partner does, if she does a hands-on job, a big flashy ring with a stone that sits up on the ring might not be very practical day to day.

2. Find the Right Stone

You’ll have more than a few choices for engagement ring stones than you’d think, ranging from diamonds to Swarovski crystals. With how different these can look; you should put the time and effort into figuring out specifically which one you want.

Diamonds are the most common, but that doesn’t mean you have to go with them. Keep you and your partner’s preferences in mind when you’re deciding. Sometimes, the best option can be the not-so-obvious one. This is also where your budget can come into play as some stones can really push up the price of your ring too.

It could be worth choosing the stone first, as it can affect more than a few other choices you’ll have to make.

3. Determine the Setting

Now that you know what type of stone you want, it’s time to figure out what kind of setting you should have. This is where the stone will be placed, so you’ll need to make sure it perfectly encapsulates and enhances the overall look of the stone.

It’s also worth keeping your lifestyle in mind, as some settings are much more durable than others. If you lead a relatively active lifestyle, it could be worth going for a more subtle, durable setting that holds the stone in place a little better. You wouldn’t want to risk the stone coming out and needing to be replaced, after all.

While there are more than a few of these to choose from, your jeweller can help you choose the perfect one.

Designing The Perfect Engagement Ring: Wrapping Up

Designing the perfect engagement ring can seem like it’s a difficult and time-consuming process. While it’ll take a bit of time, it’ll be far less complicated than you’d expect plus you will have the knowledge that you have created a totally unique ring making it even more special. Knowing the setting, finding the right stone, and figuring out which shape you want will all be large parts of this.

Once you have these in mind, you’ll have no problem designing an engagement ring you’ll love for the rest of your life. It’ll be the perfect representation of the love you and your partner have for each other.
