Are you looking for the perfect, unique way to celebrate and pop the big question to the love of your life? Finding the right ring to symbolize your love and devotion during one of the most important moments of your lives together is no small task! If you’re looking for a truly special way to start a new chapter in your love story, a custom-designed ring is an amazing way to take your proposal to the next level and add an extra special footnote to your big moment.
Paris Jewellers is happy to partner with couples to create stunning custom engagement rings that capture the beauty ofyour union and the uniqueness of your story together. Having expanded from humble beginnings in St. Albert, Alberta nearly 30 years ago, our team is proud to have created breathtaking rings for hometown favourites like The Bachelor’s Kaitlyn Bristowe and Lana Condor from Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series. Whether you’re planning a proposal that’s Hollywood worthy or a more intimate affair, we’re here to help you design the perfect ring for your big moment. Below are a few key tips to keep in mind if you’re planning to design a custom engagement ring!
Custom rings take time to design and craft. On average, you can expect a custom engagement ring to take approximately 4-6 weeks to create, if not more depending on what special features or inclusions you have in mind. If you have a specific proposal date in mind, it’s important to meet with your jeweller in advance. Giving yourself a few months allows you to have extra peace of mind, and makes sure you’ll have plenty of time to prepare to pop the question!
Designing something from scratch can sometimes feel a little overwhelming, so to help yourself stay focused, we recommend taking some time to do research and bringing a few different pictures in to serve as ideas and inspiration. The design and goldsmith team at Paris Jewellers will work with you to create a piece that perfectly represents the love of your life and your story together.
Metal, Stone, and Setting
Whether you choose a custom ring or opt for an existing engagement piece, the main components you’ll want to have in mind before coming in are:
Metal: white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum, etc.
Stone: While diamonds remain the most popular engagement ring choice, don’t be afraid to experiment with the idea of other gems like sapphire, morganite or emeralds!
Cut, Clarity, Colour, Carat: Known collectively as the “4C’s” of diamonds, each of these attributes will play a significant role in the design and cost of your engagement ring.
Setting: Our designers will guide you through some of the most popular settings including three stones, halos, solitaires and more!
Consider a Wedding Set
Custom crafted wedding sets are a great way to take your proposal to the next level and ensure that both your engagement ring and wedding band fit together perfectly. As the ultimate way to share your love story, wedding sets are also cost-effective and allow you to truly showcase your creativity.
