For most people, getting engaged and then married is one of the best experiences of their life. From the initial proposal to the wedding day itself, it really is a magical time for everyone involved. Of course, along with all the romance and excitement, there are practical considerations to take care of. One of the major ones is what engagement and wedding rings you will buy for each other to wear. While many people go the route of buying standard off the shelf bands, a custom made ring is often a much better choice. But why?

A major bonus with buying a custom ring is the chance it gives you to create your perfect ring. Very often this is not the case when you buy off the shelf. This is because there will not be everything there you would desire in one item. With a custom ring, you can select from any metal, size or stone to get the exact results you have always dreamed of. This is sure to make your engagement and wedding extra special.
Another advantage which custom rings offer is their uniqueness. Every bride and groom like to feel they have things that are unique to them for their wedding. Buying custom rings is the ideal way to do this and make sure the ring you have is the only one in existence.
The traditional way of buying rings leaves a lot to be desired. After hours trudging around every jeweller in your town or city, you can still end up empty-handed and in a panic. Going the custom ring route eliminates this as you simply go to one jeweller who will help you design the exact ring you like. With no more wasted time or frustration, this is a much more pleasurable way to do it.
One especially romantic thing you can only do with custom rings is incorporate something personal for your partner in them. Maybe you proposed on holiday in Madagascar and you want to include a Sapphire produced there as an extra touch. Or maybe you want a stone added from their family collection for extra sentimental value. Whatever the reason, the custom approach makes it possible to get rings that have extra meaning for your beloved.
Many people are not aware that they can create your ring or that this is a viable option. So the question must be posed as to where one can get this done. Also, how does one go about getting a ring designed. The hope is that their future bride to be will fall in love with. The process is relatively straightforward. You really just have two things to do.
(i) Firstly choose the setting you want and
(ii) then pick out the diamond to be placed into that setting.
An easier way to do this is to get a picture of a ring you like and it can be reproduced. Of course, it is very important that the design of the ring reflects the persons personality. It should also reflect their taste in fashion and style. Her personal tastes must be met. For example, whether or not she likes contemporary or traditional style rings. Or the metal type that would be her preference. Would she like a simple metal band or one that is more bling with diamonds going all around it. These are important points that it is important to give some thought to so that your future fiancé loves her ring.
When choosing the type of metal for the band, you have the choice of using white, rose or yellow gold or platinum.
White gold is the most popular choice of metal. When compared with platinum it has a stronger shine and is more resistant to scratches. White gold is an alloy of golds, palladium and rhodium plating. To maintain the shine, white gold is supposed to be re-rhodium plated every so often (every year approx.) This is to prevent the yellow hue of the gold from emerging.
This metal is particularly nice in antique/vintage style settings as it is often seen as the more romantic metal. When compared with the other golds, as rose gold is predominately copper, it is much stronger and durable. Rose gold looks particularly well with a morganite stone as the soft pinkish tones really complement each other.
This is often seen as the more “classic” choice of metal. It looks particularly well just as part of a simple solitaire ring. The yellow hues are best complemented by someone with a darker complexion. High karat yellow gold is more susceptible to scratching, so it too requires some upkeep.
Platinum is also a white metal and is said to look very similar to white gold, albeit slightly duller. It will not fade to yellow over time and is a stronger and more durable metal compared with White Gold. White gold has a silver shine and Platinum has more of a grey hue. Also, Platinum is a more expensive metal but there is less maintenance involved as no rhodium-plating required, just an occasional polish.
It is a fact that gifts made by hand with lots of love and attention are the best presents to give. The receivers really appreciate them. One gets a lot of self-satisfaction from making and creating the gift. The receiver knows it is made with them in mind and that it is personal to them. It really is a case of ‘the thought that counts’.
The receiver will appreciate it much more than you going into a shop and simply purchasing a gift. It makes them feel more special, that you had what they like in mind when preparing the gift for them. This is certainly the case when you create your ring with a jeweller.
