Custom engagement rings are an extraordinary way to celebrate your one-of-a-kind relationship. But when you’re creating a forever jewelry piece totally from scratch, how do you know where to begin? As a custom jeweler with over 25 years of experience, Takayas Custom Jewelry has some ideas on how to make your engagement ring truly perfect.
Showcase Your Partner’s Style
What’s in your beloved’s jewelry box? Dainty stackable bands? Big and colorful statement rings? Have they ever made a passing comment on the latest celebrity engagement ring or jewelry you spotted in a shop window–they’re not a fan of split shanks, they love the halo setting trend? Maybe you’re fortunate to have a partner who knows precisely what they want in their engagement ring, and they have the curated Pinterest board to prove it.
If your partner doesn’t wear a lot of bling, reaching out to their family or close friends may earn you insights on their preferences. Consider also their unique personality: offbeat and adventurous, bright and bubbly, or gentle and refined, a custom engagement ring can beautifully represent who they are.
Reflect What’s Meaningful to You
Your custom engagement ring is made just for you. This is a wonderful opportunity to immortalize the moments that you and your partner hold close to your hearts. What are some of your most treasured memories together? Favorite places you’ve visited? When did you know you had fallen in love?
A ring tells a story about the person wearing it, and the possibilities are endless for illustrating the story of you and your partner in jewelry form. Birthstones, flower symbolism, precious pets, and favorite art styles are full of inspiration for meaningful engagement ring designs.
Get Your Partner Involved
How better to capture your partner’s tastes than to get them on board creating their dream engagement ring? More and more couples are opting to propose with a placeholder ring, collaborating on the real thing later on. Working together to design the special ring that represents your love is a romantic bonding experience and great team building exercise as a newly-engaged pair.
Bring it All to Takayas
There’s no need to nail down your exact ring design before reaching out to a jeweler. Your inspiration images, sketches, and mood boards help Takayas brainstorm incredible concepts that go beyond what you could have even imagined.
