Designing a Custom Engagement Ring

Do you find that while you look at different engagement rings that you like specific aspects but can’t quite find a design that feels right? If you want to have more control over design elements, why not consider the custom design route? There are numerous benefits that come with designing a custom ring. For one, it offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to style, colour, cut and design. There are also endless possibilities and combinations that make it a versatile option that is highly customizable. Here are some aspects of custom designed rings that are trending right now!

The Vintage Feel

 Engagement ring designs that emanate a vintage feel have really made a comeback. Designs that feature halos --a large centered bezel diamond circled by smaller pavé diamonds, are an example of a new design that reflects vintage values. This design paired with mixed metals, as an example, can really play up the vintage feel of a ring. Plus, this design can be adapted to look as simple or as luxurious as you’d like. For example, one simple round cut diamond on a silver based ring with one halo is a simple, delicate and elegant design choice. Whereas, a larger square-cut diamond with 2-3 halos can create a more dramatic look. Using these parameters can help you create a unique and distinct ring that reflects your partner!

Play with Colour

Traditional wedding ring designs are often seen in white metals and yellow gold. But did you know that you can use other means of colour to your advantage? Consider hues like rose gold when thinking about the ring’s base. Rose gold is an incredible way to create a romantic hue that can balance out or accentuate other features in the ring’s design. It will also add a completely different dimension from traditional looks, if you’re looking to create something distinct and new. Diamonds are also available in a variety of fancy colours such as a bright, clear light blue, and yellow. The variety of colours can range from light to vivid depending on the look you’re trying to go for. For instance, if you just want a subtle hint of colour, you can opt for a lightly coloured fancy colour diamond.
