Congratulations on taking this big step! Choosing the perfect custom-made engagement ring can seem overwhelming, but it's important to remember that there's no right or wrong way to do it. Here are a few tips that we feel might help you along the way:
1. Determine your budget: Engagement rings can range from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands of pounds, so it's important to have a budget in mind before you start shopping. This will help you narrow down your options and prevent you from overspending.
2. Consider your partner's style and taste in jewellery. Do they prefer classic and timeless designs, or are they more drawn to unique and unconventional pieces? This can help guide your decision when it comes to selecting a ring.
3. Learn about the 4 Cs: When it comes to diamonds, you'll often hear about the "4 Cs" - cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight. These are important factors to consider when choosing a diamond, as they can affect its appearance and value.
4. Choose a reputable jeweller: Make sure to do your research and choose a reputable jeweller with a good reputation. Look for reviews and testimonials from previous customers, and don't be afraid to ask questions or request certifications for the diamonds you're considering. We work closely with AnchorCert Gem Lab and will provide a price for certification before we start making your custom-made jewellery.
5. Trust your instincts: Ultimately, the most important thing is to choose a ring that you feel confident and excited about. Trust your instincts and go with your gut - after all, this is a decision that will be with you and your partner for a lifetime.
