So, it’s both a learning experience as well as a joyride. The cherry on top is the result, which is unrivaled in its originality and artistry. So, if you are thinking of custom-designing an engagement ring for the man in your life, here is how to go about it.
Get Your Hands on Some Inspiring Images
First things first, you need to have some inspirations. That should not be hard to come by with the internet at your disposal. Just log on to Google and browse through the online galleries to coalesce some inspiring images. This will give you some readymade ideas to work on. Save the images and get prints for later use.
A Jeweler Who Shares Your Vision
Next thing, you need to find a jeweler who has an aesthetic sense akin to yours. This may take a little time taking into account the fact that it will involve a couple of interviews, face to face or online. Talk to them personally about the design you have in mind by showing the images. If you see their vision matching yours, then you are on the last lap of the process.
Get on to the Components
Here is where you choose the components you want to see on the ring. Gemstone, metal, setting, pick away. This step, if not more important than the ones before, is vital to the outcome. So, take your time going through your options. Follow up with your jeweler after selecting a component to get his thoughts on its suitability. Work back and forth to make sure that the ring you will have in the end is the first of its kind.
