With or without thorns – the beauty of creating your own bespoke engagement ring

Spring is finally here – the time of hope, rebirth and renewal, which makes it the perfect time to get married or to think about getting married. Either way, you’ll want an engagement ring that perfectly sums up your love for one another, which is why a bespoke engagement ring could be the perfect option.

We aren’t saying you should design something as extreme as Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s choice which incorporates thorns, so it hurts if she tries to take it off (what happens if she needs to do the washing up!!), but it does show that getting something that actually means something is wonderfully romantic.

We take a look at some of the reasons why you should consider designing your own engagement ring.

1. Create something which has special significance

Incorporating both their birthstones, you’ve got to admit that Megan Fox’s engagement ring is stunning especially when it’s described as ‘two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love’.

And that is the beauty of creating your own engagement ring – the world is your oyster.  Whether you use your birthstones as inspiration, go down the traditional diamond route, base your design on a drawing from a niece of nephew or incorporate design inspiration from your favourite TV programme, whatever you choose as inspiration doesn’t matter.

This is a ring that is all about you as a couple. Not only will the ring have special meaning, but the memory of designing it together is something you will treasure forever.

2. Get a unique engagement ring you can’t get anywhere else

We stock a wide range of stunning engagement rings of all sizes and types, but with such a significant piece of jewellery wouldn’t it be great knowing that nobody else is wearing it?

From choosing the metal, selecting a special stone to choosing the cut and setting, you will decide on every single aspect of your bespoke engagement ring, so you’ll know that the ring is unique to you and your love story.

  1. Reimage a beloved piece of jewellery

Not everyone wants to wear an inherited engagement ring, but there is something undeniably romantic about being given a piece of jewellery which has been passed down the generations and holds a special place in your beloved’s heart.

That’s where creating a bespoke engagement ring comes into its own. Using your original heirloom ring, we can remodel it into something a bit more you while still maintaining the integrity of the piece.

4. A bespoke engagement ring is a lifetime investment

The beauty of a bespoke engagement ring is that it will last forever. Not only will it not go out of style like mass-produced rings, but also every time you look at it you will be reminded of your love for one another. And it will make a fantastic heirloom to pass on down the years.

5. The process is simpler than you think

Many people are put off from designing a bespoke engagement ring as they think it’s complicated and expensive, but that is far from the truth.

We are lucky enough to have an on-site goldsmith, which means we will be able to:

  • talk through your ideas
  • work out the best options in terms of metal, stones and settings
  • come up with some designs for you to review
  • refine the drawings until you are 100% happy with the design

And if you are worried about budget, we will always design a beautiful ring within your budget without ever compromising on quality.

And of course, we will also ensure that you find a wedding band that fits perfectly with your new engagement ring.
