Nothing says love more than an engagement ring that has been custom-designed with a quality diamond. Whether the event will be a total surprise or a well-planned decision that includes the input of your special someone, it is important to know exactly what you are looking for in a custom designed ring.
This short guide on diamond engagement rings is filled with helpful information about what you need to know to create the perfect ring that will show just how much you care!
Setting A Budget
It is important to begin the search for any custom designed ring by determining your budget ahead of time. How much you can and want to spend is a personal decision only you can make. Having a budget worked out ahead of time allows jewelers to think within that budget when designing a diamond engagement ring that will excite your beloved!
Choosing A Diamond
Do not let choosing a diamond for an engagement ring leave you overwhelmed because yes, there is a lot to know. Kiss your worries goodbye, we have got it all broken down here for you with some info about the 4 Cs of diamond quality - color, clarity, cut and carat! Keep these 4 Cs in mind as a skilled gemologist helps you find the right diamond for that special person in your life:
- Color - Diamonds naturally come in various shades and are graded into five color categories that include colorless, near-colorless, slightly tinted, very light, and light coloration. Colorless diamonds have the highest value.
- Clarity - Clarity is how clear a diamond is and how few flaws it has. Flaws in the diamond reduce clarity and the clearer the diamond, the higher its value.
- Cut - A diamond's cut is determined by the craftsmanship of the polisher. If the diamond is cut too shallow, the light "leaks" out the bottom of the diamond. If the diamond is cut too deep, the light is lost altogether. An optimal cut diamond ensures that the light reflects out through the top of the diamond, allowing its full light performance beauty to shine through.
- Carat - Diamond size and weight are measured by the carat. One carat equals 200 mg or â gram in physical weight and can be divided into 100 points. The larger the number of carats and points, the more valuable the diamond.
Size and Style
An engagement ring that is custom designed should reflect the wearer as much as possible. Whether they enjoy a more subtle or a fancier look, something modern or traditional, or prefer smaller or larger jewelry, your engagement ring will make its best impression if it matches your soon-to-be fiance’s personal style.
Custom Designing A Ring
Working with a certified jeweler, you can create a beautiful and unique custom-designed diamond engagement ring that is like no other and the process on your part is easier than you might think.
After determining a budget and deciding on the general size and style of the ring, the process can move forward by meeting with one of the sales staff to develop an initial concept for your ring. Then one of our staff will create a 3D model of the ring for approval and then a 3D resin model of the ring will be created to serve as a mold to create that rendering in metal.
The next step is for one of our in-house jewelers to set the gemstones that you have selected by hand into the ring. After a final quality review, your custom-designed engagement ring is ready for that special day!
