Why Design Your Own Engagement Ring?by Kevin Smith Author
With all the beautiful engagement ring options already available in jewelry stores, why would anyone decide to design their own? It is a fun process for sure. But, more than that are the opportunities to express creativity, be original, make a statement, include a family heirloom, and more. Let’s take a look at each of these and you can decide what the best option is for you –designing your own ring or buying one retail. Both are great; you just have to decide what’s important to you.
Some couples are more creative; they are into art and expressing themselves through their clothing, jewelry, and Vandalia, IL, designer engagement rings. So, it is only natural for them to want to create something as special as an engagement ring. Creative couples often design the ring together and include in their designs elements that are important to them and perhaps symbolize how they met or what they like to do together. Some go very non-traditional and replace the diamond with another precious gemstone or none at all. The options are endless. They think of the ring as a black canvas. It’s great fun!
Other couples want to be original and design a ring so that no one else has anything like it! It’s all about being different. And, like the creative couples, they might mix metals and stones and go through many drawings to get it just right. But, in the end, they want a statement-making ring that is truly unique.
Include a family heirloom
If you have a ring or piece of jewelry from a family member, you can recreate it, or use elements from it, to create an engagement ring. For example, say you have a necklace passed down from a great grandmother, you can talk with a jeweler about melting it down, creating a ring out of it, and then using any gemstone in the original necklace as design elements.
Element of Surprise
Some couples like to surprise each other. And while any engagement ring can be a fantastic surprise, being able to tell your partner that you designed the ring yourself makes the moment even more memorable! So, even if you are choosing options provided by the jeweler, like the stone and the setting, it is still referred to as designing the ring. Or, if you are working from scratch and creating the design of the ring, Vandalia, IL, designer engagement rings are great surprises in the end.
