If you or your partner has had a dream ring in mind for years, a custom engagement ring is the perfect way to get exactly what you want in a ring without having to compromise on any design aspects based on the available selection at your local jeweler. Combine elements of several designs you like and nix or alter parts you don't; when you build a custom ring, you get to choose every component, from the diamond to the number of stones, from the setting to the size. When building a custom ring at Studio 2015, your local jewelry store in the Algonquin area, you will always have seasoned professionals and master jewelers guiding you with consultations and design sessions to ensure that your every need is met when designing your perfect, unique engagement ring.
The Diamond for You
Not all diamonds are created equal. When choosing a diamond for your custom engagement ring, there are many factors at play. Deciding and prioritizing your wishes for your ring is important to establish beforehand, as it will guide the ring design. Cut, color, clarity, and carat are all key components to consider when selecting a diamond. A smaller diamond that's priced the same as a larger diamond will be higher quality and showcase a brighter rainbow of colors. Larger diamonds are stunning from a distance but more likely to have microscopic flaws that alter their clarity and may have an undesirable color despite being a higher carat weight. Finding the right balance between quality and size will ultimately depend on your budget and your priorities, but keep in mind, there is no wrong diamond!
A Cut Above
The shape of a diamond is a key contributor to the overall design and aesthetic of your custom engagement ring. More traditional shapes include round brilliant cuts and ovals. Marquise, pear, and heart-shaped diamonds are less common but equally gorgeous when seated in a halo setting or set as the focal point in a solitaire-style ring. Older and more vintage, old miner's cut and rose cut diamonds have fallen out of modern graces but are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more antique vibe. Square diamonds, such as princess, emerald, or cushion cuts, can be both fun and quirky while maintaining elegance. Your diamond choice is the largest contribution to your custom engagement ring's overall appearance and will define the entire ring, so don't be afraid to explore!
Revamp your Setting
Perhaps you inherited your grandmother's ring, but the design is a little dated, and you're not sure your bride-to-be will appreciate the ring itself even if she loves the sentiment. Reset a family heirloom and turn it into something new again with a custom engagement ring. Using the dimensions of the existing diamond, create a stunning ring by replacing the band in a new style and adding supplementary stones, turning a plain solitaire ring into a sparkling halo setting, or simplifying an existing design by taking small exterior diamonds and turning them into a pave band, setting the diamonds into metal so the band is “paved” with tiny diamond bricks. Maintain sentimentality while creating something truly unique to you and your love story at Studio 2015 in the Algonquin area.
