Creating an engagement ring that's unique to your own personal sense of style is easier than you think. Just because you can't find your ideal engagement ring ready-made in a jewelry store doesn't mean you have to give up on the design of your dreams. The truth is, creating your own, personal engagement ring is doable.Your Jared jewelry specialist will be happy to walk you through the process. Here's a preview of what you should think about before you get started. 1. Ready. Set. Style.Most women have the style and setting picked out in their head before they even start shopping. You may already know that you want a solitaire
or a three-stone
setting or something more vintage
. 2. The Center of Attention Choosing your center stone is one of the most important decisions when finding an engagement ring. Begin with your budget to make sure you don't have your heart set on something out of range. Then factor in shape and decide how you?d like to prioritize the 4C's
. If you gravitate toward more vibrant hues, don't be afraid to choose a color gemstone
to add a little pizazz to your engagement ring. Maybe your birthstone
means a lot to you, or you have a favorite color you always wear. 3. Imagine the metalBesides the center stone, the metal you choose is important in the overall aesthetic of your ring. Decide which material best suits you: white
or rose gold
. Or consider a two-tone style for a visually striking look!4. Finishing touches If you're unsatisfied with your basic design, customize it further with a few personal touches. Engraving
on the inside of your band can add meaning. Another way to customize is to add more bling. Anniversaries are a great excuse to double up on gemstones or add a halo to your original creation. No matter what, make sure your engagement ring resonates with who you are. You're going to be wearing this forever, and you'll want a design that reflects the love and life-changing commitment you're making as a couple.
