Tips For Selecting A Custom Engagement Ring Design

Find inspiration online.

Take a little time to compare different types of custom engagement rings designs. Search online for images of other custom rings and save the styles that you think your partner will like.

You don’t have to find the exact, perfect ring just yet. You’re merely looking for inspiration, so you can narrow your options to a small group of styles. You’ll also be able to provide images to the designer, so they can have a clearer idea of the ring you’re envisioning.

Consider the jewelry she already has.

If she already wears jewelry, then chances are she already has a favorite style. Pay attention to any rings, necklaces, earrings or watches she wears often. These will provide insight into what she likes and will enable you to use those styles as a starting point.

If you aren’t sure how to describe the jewelry to the designer, just take a few pictures. The designer will use these as further inspiration in creating an initial mockup of your ring.

Her mom, sisters and best friends are great resources for finding out what style of rings she likes, especially if you don’t know where to start. Don’t hesitate to ask them!

Buying a custom engagement ring doesn’t HAVE to be a surprise. She’ll love being involved in the process, and when you eventually pop the question, it will be no less special. Working together to find a ring she’ll love will create a special memory that neither of you will forget.
