1. Select the Stone First
One of the best and most complex parts of designing your own ring is the many details are involved. While your goldsmith will be able to guide you through the vast majority, the first place to start is by choosing your stone as it will influence the rest of the setting choices and the overall style of the ring. From a timeless one-carat solitaire ring to more modern halo and pavé settings, finding the right way to showcase your chosen gem will help it truly sparkle and stand out.
2. Consider Style
As we mentioned above, once you have your main stone selection made, you can begin to consider the many styles that work to complement it. When combining both elements for an overall finish, you’ll want to think about your loved one’s sense of style. Draw inspiration from jewellery you see them wearing regularly, their wardrobe choices, and consult with friends and family for more refined pointers if you need some extra help.
3. Consider Function
One under-sung but equally important aspect of designing a ring is to pause and consider the overall functionality of what you’re designing. If your fiancé-to-be works with their hands constantly, for example, they may prefer a slimmer profile ring that’s less likely to get caught on things or be subject to premature wear in tear. Knowing what additional factors need to be accounted for will play a crucial role in your final design.
4. Get Creative
One of the best aspects of designing your own ring is that you have the freedom to get as creative as you’d like. Feel free to come in with a few concepts and ideas in mind, as this will help your goldsmith reach the same page and pull from their own experience to design a final product that hits the right mark!
5. Have Patience
Finally, one aspect that you’ll want to keep in mind during the design process is that a custom creation will take longer than buying a ring right from the case. Fortunately, working with an experienced team will make it easier to have a timeline you can trust in, allowing you to plan accordingly.
