More and more people want an engagement ring that is tailor made for them. So we've put together our top 5 tips to guide you through a purchase bespoke engagement ring purchase.
Set A Budget
The first thing we recommended to do before embarking on your search is to set a budget. By knowing exactly how much you are willing to spend on a bespoke engagement ring will help in the decision making process for both you and your jeweller. The beauty of having a bespoke engagement ring is that specifications of the design can be worked around your budget.
Try Before You Buy!
Often times couples will have already have a preference for the style of engagement ring they would like. However, we advise our customers to try on a variety of different styles and keep an open mind. This is because different shapes and size of hands will suit certain diamond shapes and metal colours more. Because of this we encourage customers to view rings in-store before purchasing online.
Do Your Research
Knowing your partner's taste in jewellery is key to choosing the perfect diamond ring. For instance, if they wear rose gold jewellery on a daily basis, then perhaps they would most like a rose gold engagement ring. It's also a good idea to ask your partner's friends what they think your partner would prefer. You never know what bits of untapped information they'll have and it's always helpful to have more than one opinion. Another tip is if they already wear a ring on their ring finger then you can take it in for the jeweller to measure. However, getting the exact ring size is not a necessity as it can be resized by a goldsmith at any stage.
