custom engagement ring

Everyone loves custom gifts. In fact, around 85% of people say that customized gifts are one of the biggest factors that determine if they like the gift. So, does the logic around custom gifts extend to a custom engagement ring?

The answer is yes! A customized engagement ring is one of the best engagement ring ideas out there. These types of rings excel in ways that make them a great choice for almost anyone.

But why do these rings stand out so significantly? Keep reading to discover 10 reasons you should consider a custom engagement ring.

1. Completely Unique

The first, and perhaps the most significant, reason to go with a custom engagement ring is that it is entirely unique. When you take the time to design a ring that is exactly tailored to your specifications, it will be like no other ring on the planet.

This works as a reflection of your relationship. The love that you share is completely unique to the two of you. So, shouldn’t the object that represents your love be unique as well?

This also eliminates awkward situations in the future. Imagine buying an engagement ring only to discover that one of your friends has the exact same ring. With a custom engagement ring, this will never be a problem.

2. You Get Exactly What You Want

The other big reason to go with a custom engagement ring is that it allows you to get exactly what you want. Rings come in all types of different shapes, sizes, and designs. However, the options presented to you may not always align with your wants and needs.

In most cases, jewelers have a limited number of rings available. If you want to buy a ring from that jeweler, you will have to buy one of those rings. There are cases where they may be able to order a specific ring for you but even these options are limited.

Meanwhile, a custom ring will always align with your wants and needs. With one of these, you get to choose exactly what you want. You aren’t limited because the selection happens to be lackluster.

3. Fine Tune Little Details

With non-custom rings, there is a slim chance that you will be able to find a ring that is almost exactly what you want. You may get lucky and find a jeweler who has a ring that initially looks absolutely perfect. However, upon closer examination, you discover that one little detail is off.

At first, this may not seem like a big deal and you may be tempted to get the ring anyway. However, when it comes to engagement rings, the details matter.

Little details are particularly important when it comes to engagement rings because they last a lifetime. If something is off about the ring now, that means something will be off about it in five years, ten years, twenty years, and so on. The problem won’t get better over time.

Humans are also inclined to a negativity bias. So, once you notice a problem with something, it is hard to stop focusing on that problem.

Luckily, custom engagement rings do not fall victim to this problem. With a custom ring, you are able to fine-tune all of the little details. This means that you never have to compromise with what you want.

4. Choose Specific Materials

Diamonds are gorgeous and are a beautiful representation of everlasting love. This is why they have become the go-to option for most engagement rings.

However, more and more people are choosing different stones for their engagement rings. Some are going with other precious stones. Meanwhile, others are going with imperfect diamonds.

In a similar way, metals other than gold are becoming more popular. Some people prefer platinum jewelry for its strength or prefer cobalt for its unique look.

Unfortunately, many of these options are not always available. Many jewelers will only have the classic combination of diamond and gold.

Even in cases where jewelers have other options, there is no guarantee that a specific option will be available. For instance, they may have tons of different sapphire rings but may not have a single ruby ring. If you are looking for an atypical combination, it will probably be difficult to find a jeweler who has exactly what you need.

However, custom rings allow you to have exactly what you want. With a custom ring, you don’t have to worry about the fact that your idea isn’t what someone would traditionally go with. You are able to have your ring serve as the unique expression of love that it should be.

5. You Learn More About the Options

When you start shopping around for engagement rings, you may start out completely clueless. There are a lot of different types of engagement rings out there. So, if you haven’t put much thought into rings before shopping for one, you will be hit with a lot of information in a short amount of time.

At first, this may not seem like a big deal but, as you search, you will quickly find that knowing about your options is more important than you initially believed. This is a ring that will last forever. Because of this, you don’t want to just pick something out of ignorance, you want to make an informed choice.

When you start this process, you may have no idea about the difference between lab-grown and natural diamonds. You may not even be aware of the different setting options out there. These are choices that need to be made and that cannot properly be made without information.

However, when you start the process of creating a custom engagement ring, all of the options are presented to you. You might not know the options on your own but the company will be able to guide you through them. They won’t let you make a mistake.

As you do this, you will work with a professional who will guide you along. As they do so, they will inform you about your options and give you information about what each option means. If you get confused or want to know if a specific idea is possible, all you have to do is ask.

With this information under your belt, you are able to make better decisions along the way. Because of this, you will end up with a better product in the end.

6. High-Quality

Most people agree that having a high-quality product is important. In fact, studies have shown that 53% of people rate quality as being the most important factor when it comes to buying a product.

However, it can be difficult to tell the difference between high-quality products and low-quality products. Something might look wonderful but end up breaking months down the road.

This is why picking a high-quality wedding ring is important. You don’t want to risk accidentally buying a low-quality ring and then having it for the rest of your life.

This is also why going with a custom engagement ring is a great decision. The best custom engagement ring will always be a high-quality pick. This is because you have full control over the level of quality that goes into it.

7. Potential Money Savings

One of the often overlooked benefits of a custom engagement ring is that it may end up being cheaper than another high-quality option. While customization obviously adds some additional costs to the ring as a whole, it also allows you to get the exact ring you want at a reasonable price point.

This is particularly relevant in cases where you really want a specific type of ring. In these cases, your options will be limited. You may not be able to find the option you want from a regular jeweler and will, instead, end up searching at a more expensive place.

The more expensive jeweler may have the option you are searching for, as many expensive jewelers are able to provide more options. However, you will end up paying a premium by making this switch.

It is also helpful when you want a specific feature and discover that most stores upcharge for this feature. For example, you may want a six-prong ring instead of a four-prong ring. However, you may find that the jump in price is too high at most stores.

However, when designing the ring on your own, the prices are more reasonable. In this case, the company expects you to make adjustments like these and price them accordingly.

8. Reduces Time Spent Searching

Finding the perfect wedding ring might take a while. Most jewelers have a limited selection, some options may be out of stock, and visiting multiple stores is often necessary. All of this adds time to your search for the perfect ring.

In addition, if you are really looking for the perfect ring, it may take even longer. In this case, you are looking for something very specific and, more often than not, you will find that the specific option you want is unavailable. In these cases, you will have to spend even more time looking for what you want.

However, with a customized engagement ring, you do not have to search at all. Instead of going from place to place, comparing option after option, you only need to deal with one company. They will be able to provide what you want and need.

There is a process to customizing the ring and picking the options that will go into the customization process. You will need to work with the company to pick these options. However, picking a few options will take a lot less time than shopping around and searching for a ring.

9. A Memorable Experience

The process of buying an engagement ring is something that no one who does it will forget. It is the moment when the road to the wedding truly begins. In some ways, a couple may consider it the first step in their new life.

However, in some cases, the process is a little mundane. Going to some jewelers and picking out a ring ends up feeling like going out to the store and buying anything else. There just isn’t the level of magic that one would expect.

With a custom engagement ring, the process is truly memorable. You are able to experience every level of the experience, as you watch your idea for a ring slowly turn into a reality. Plus, expert staff will guide you through this whole process.

In the end, you will never forget the process that led up to the creation of your perfect ring. This is a wonderful note to start a marriage with.

10. Shows You Care

The last and one of the most important reasons to go with a custom engagement ring is that they are the ultimate way to show you care.

Most people agree that it is the thought that counts when it comes to gift giving. Putting the time and effort into designing every detail for your engagement ring is a lot of thought. This alone makes it a great gift.

However, the customization process shows that you truly know and understand the person you want to marry. By customizing it to suit their needs and preferences, you show that you care about those same needs and preferences. A ring like this shows that you were paying attention when they said they wanted a white gold ring or that you know what kind of style they would appreciate.

It is also a way to start your marriage with a gift that comes from the heart. This ring wasn’t created by a random jeweler, it was created by you.

Making a Great Custom Engagement Ring

Buying an engagement ring should be a memorable experience that results in a beautiful ring. With a custom engagement ring, the experience is memorable and the ring is everything you could possibly hope for.

Shimon is absolutely amazing at what he does and such a pleasure to work with. We had a custom wedding band made to complement my center stone and the design is quite unique. My fiancé was very apprehensive and worried about not going with a classic wedding band but we both couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Going to be hard not to wear this for the next few months! 😅

Just got a new watch and needed a link removed. I found this store on Google and decided to stop in and see if they could help. Shimon doesn’t typically do watches, but he didn’t hesitate to stop what he was doing to help me. He took the time out of his day to help me and wouldn’t accept any payment. You can tell he takes extreme pride in his work and he will do whatever it takes to help his customers. I will absolutely be coming back and using him in the future!

My fiancé and I cannot say enough about Shimon and Finer Custom Jewelry. I had an heirloom ring from my mom, and two bands that I wanted to use to create a very specific ring, the ring of my dreams. After a lot of research, we found Shimon. Throughout the entire process, he was incredible. From our very first meeting where we went over my vision, to the final product. I feel so lucky to have found such a caring and talented jeweler. You can tell he takes such pride in his work, as he should because it is truly flawless. I would recommend Shimon to anyone I know. We are so thankful to have him to make our forever ring so incredibly special. It exceeded all our expectations and then some.

I would give Shimon at Finer Custom Jewelry 10 stars if I could! He created an entirely custom ring for my fiancé just based on one Google image photo that she provided me. Before working with Shimon, I assumed I would not be able to afford a custom ring, but I was able to choose everything for the ring and stay perfectly within my budget. It was a very personal experience to create this ring and I felt heard by Shimon the entire time. (He even texted me to congratulate me on my engagement!) And he produced the most wonderful, amazing ring that will last for a lifetime! One final note: as a woman proposing to another woman, I was nervous to be judged when purchasing a non-traditional engagement ring. Shimon made me feel SO comfortable and validated. I could not recommend his services enough.

My entire experience with Shimon was incredible start to finish. I came in with just an idea of what I wanted for an engagement ring. He took the time to explain the different options, settings and styles that would match my idea. Needless to say, the ring turned out beautifully and she loved it. Most importantly, Shimon was honest and fair. We will definitely be going back for all of our future needs.

I’ve been looking for a yellow diamond ring for a while now and I’m so glad I foundation Finer Jewelry!!! Shimon showed me a variety of diamonds and made sure I was in love with the specific stone and shade of the diamond. Shimon made sure to educate me on my purchase which I really appreciated because I honestly didn’t know much about diamonds before meeting with him. I could not be more obsessed with this ring, so thank you so much Shimon for helping me find my dream ring!!!

If you are looking for a jeweler in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area, look no further. As we began shopping for an engagement ring we went to a number of different jewelers in the area but no one offered the same level of customer service as Shimon at Finer Jewelry! He was so helpful and caring throughout the entire process of designing my dream ring. I get so many compliments on my ring and it’s all thanks to Finer Jewelry!!

I was gifted diamonds from my mother and both grandmother’s wedding rings and I wanted to make my own wedding ring with them. I was able to schedule an appointment the following day and began working on the ring design. They were so thorough in making sure the fit and design was just right by making 3D imaging and wax molds for you to see before the ring is actually made. The whole process took about a month from start to finish and you can’t beat the price! I’m beyond happy with what they made for me. It’s truly something special.
18:36 14 Dec 21
After sharing our diamond CCC wish list with Shimon we sat back and waited. Shimon took us seriously and carefully watched the exchanges for "our stone". He found us a nearly flawless diamond that presented 30% larger than its weight! We then asked Shimon to craft a setting that required specially cut supplemental diamonds. Shimon's relationships with diamond cutters and his goldsmith made it possible for him to deliver our dream setting with our own "hope" diamond! Shimon is personable, very fun to work with and completely transparent. He and his stones are priceless!
