Choose a setting

1. Choose a setting

Pick 2-3 engagement ring settings that suit your partner’s style. If you’re struggling to choose the type of setting that will best suit them, take a look at their current rings to get a feel for their style and the type of rings they usually like.

2. Try different stone shapes

Experiment with various gemstone shapes and see how they add personality to the engagement ring. It’s amazing how different the same setting appears by simply changing the shape of the centre gemstone.

3. Pick the right gemstone

Engagement rings traditionally have a white diamond as the focal point. But when you’re making a bespoke ring, you can do whatever you like. See how different gemstones look in addition to a diamond or forget diamonds altogether and choose a colorful gemstone as the focal stone.

4. Get creative with contrast

Don’t shy away from mixing things up. Test out contrasting gemstones, metal colours, gemstone shapes, and textures. Getting creative with contrast can help add extra personality to your ring and make it stand out.

5. Little details make a big impact

Small, intricate details can make just as big an impression as a large centre stone. Make your engagement ring even more interesting by incorporating a halo design, side-profile elements, or a shoulder setting.

6. Reflect your partner

If you’re feeling completely overwhelmed by the creation process, try to recreate your partner in the ring. Think about their lifestyle, personality, and character then use this information to guide you when designing the ring. Is your partner more modern or traditional? Colourful or classic? Bold or subtle?
