Factors To Discuss When Designing A Diamond Engagement Ring

If you are planning to pop the question soon and have decided to go down the custom ring road, this is indeed a wise move, as having a diamond ring commissioned is no more expensive than choosing a ring at the jewellery store. The process of creating a unique diamond engagement ring is not as complex as you might think and with that in mind, here are some important aspects of the making of a diamond engagement ring.

The Stones

Of course, diamonds are a girl’s best friend and the best person to acquire loose stones is the custom jeweller. The quality of the diamonds will be determined by your budget and of course, every stone would have a GIA certificate and you would save money as the custom jeweller pays trade prices for good quality diamonds.

The Cut

As you would expect, there are many diamond cuts and the custom jeweller would help you choose a cut that suits your personality and gives maximum sparkle. The Internet hosts a wealth of information about diamond cuts to help you make the right choices.


Whether you prefer pink Argyle or clear diamonds, there are many options; you could mix a central diamond with sapphires or emeralds and the custom jeweller has many images of previous projects that might inspire you regarding colour.


The setting needs to be practical, as you will be wearing the ring all the time and a setting that firmly holds the stones is something to consider. The jeweller would use computer graphics to build a 3D image of the ring and help you make the right setting choice.

The Base Metal

The band would either be made from gold or platinum; gold comes in many forms, yellow, rose and white, while platinum is popular due to its hardness and the fact that it doesn’t tarnish. When commissioning bespoke diamond engagement rings Brisbane or your city goes for, the custom jeweller is happy to advise regarding the base metal of the ring. It is possible to have the band made from a combination of metals, which is something to discuss with the custom jeweller.


The options are limitless and if you have a concept in mind, the custom jeweller can take that and build on it, to create the perfect diamond engagement ring. You might like a large central stone in a cluster or perhaps two small diamonds with a larger stone in the centre. The jeweller is happy to take the time to ensure that you are 100% happy with the ring design and then the work can begin.

It is advisable to come up with a budget, an amount of money that you are prepared to invest in this very special symbol of your eternal love. Then the custom jeweller has something to work with and most can accommodate the client in terms of staying within a budget.
