San Diego Jewelry Stores

Perhaps you've been browsing fine jewelry stores in search for the perfect engagement ring. There are many reputable, fine jewelers, but they all have the same issue in common: regardless of the quality from a shop, your ring won't be as special and unique as the one you put the effort into designing yourself.


What Makes An Engagement Ring Perfect?

The best engagement rings are the ones that suit the wearer's personality and style. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to choosing an engagement ring, which is why we help you custom design an amazing, one-of-a-kind diamond engagement ring of your dreams. Master Diamond Setter, Vanessa Nicole, will work with you to create a unique ring that celebrates your love.

How To Create A Custom Ring She'll Love

Vanessa has been working with men, women, and couples for years using her special process. She'll work with you to get an idea of your soon-to-be fiance's style and preferences.


Choose Your Engagement Ring Setting Material

Settings for engagement rings can be crafted from either gold or platinum, depending on the desired hardness and color of the metal. For those leaning towards gold, there is a greater variety of colors to choose from: white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. Among these choices, yellow gold is a popular pick because it flatters many different skin types. White gold and platinum are also excellent choices for complementing the colorlessness of the center diamond.

Select Your Ring's Center Diamond Cut and Size

Diamonds come in many shapes and sizes, each with its own unique appeal. The term "cut" refers to the shape the diamond has been cut into and includes popular cuts such as cushion, round, princess, oval, emerald, pear, marquise, and radiant. Vanessa sources brilliant cut diamonds that sparkle from across the room.

Choosing the right cut for your engagement ring is a matter of personal preference. To help you make the best choice for you, we've put together a complete diamond ring guide with videos on the different diamond cuts or shapes.


Overwhelmed? When you meet with Vanessa, she'll guide you through this decision-making process without much stress. 

Design The Custom Ring Setting

This is where we get to have fun. The setting is the band that holds and showcases the beautiful center stone. It's a reflection of your fiance's style and makes the ring truly special because you made the effort to make it one of a kind.


Vanessa asks you a series of questions to get an idea of your fiance's taste and fashion sense. This is the piece of jewelry she will be wearing every day for the rest of her life, so we want it to be perfect.


The Sample Ring Design

Once Vanessa has an idea of the design of the ring, she creates a CAD (Computer Aided Design) rendering for you to review. This is a 3-D depiction of your ring.


After you've reviewed it and made any adjustments, Vanessa sources the center stone to fit the quality, cut, shape, and budget for the diamond that you've determined.


The next step is making a wax mold of the ring. This is an exact replica of what the final ring will look and feel like, allowing for any final adjustments to be made.

Your Own, Unique Custom Engagement Ring

After you're happy with the design, Vanessa casts the ring in your choice of yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, or platinum.


Finally, she hand-sets each diamond into the setting, ensuring a perfect fit and flawless result.


The end result is the highest quality, beautiful diamond engagement ring that is as unique as your love.


Wedding Bands

With some styles of engagement rings, it can be difficult to find a wedding band that fits the engagement ring seamlessly. Vanessa can help design wedding bands that match perfectly with your engagement ring without having to shop for them.

Nathan’s thoughts on the Vanessa Nicole Experience

“I went to Vanessa in search of the perfect ring to give to my now fiance. She was unbelievably helpful with all of my questions I had and was so informative of every step that my custom ring was going through.

“Being my first time looking for a ring, she made everything so much easier. She is such a great person and truly cares about your personal story and makes that part of her process when she is making the ring. I can’t say enough about how great of a job she did making the ring and how flawless it turned out. It’s such a great feeling to know that it truly is one of a kind.

I highly recommend going to her if you are in search of that perfect ring! She is by far the best there is!”
