Shopping for an engagement ring can be daunting – we know. With so many options to choose from, where does one begin? Once you’ve made the decision to get engaged, some are often confined to the idea that you have to find the ideal engagement ring in a brick-and-mortar or online store. If you’re new to PriceScope, this blog post is meant to save you from making that dreaded decision. Why spend hours looking for the perfect engagement ring when you can design exactly what you want. Here are 5 reasons to design your own custom engagement ring:
#1 You Can Design Exactly What You Want
The first reason why people often opt for designing a custom engagement ring is that you have the ability to design exactly what you want. Designing a custom engagement ring gives you the ability to choose every aspect of the ring such as its metal, style, center stone, side stones as well as other design elements.
The chances are very slim of you walking into a brick-and-mortar store and finding exactly what you want at a price you can afford. This brings us to our next reason…
#2 You Can Get The Most Out Of Your Budget
It is highly advisable to go into this process having a budget in mind. As we’ve seen on PriceScope, there is no limit to how much you can spend on an engagement ring which is why it is important to set a budget. Setting a budget gives you the opportunity to decide which parts of the ring you would like to spend more or less on so you can get the most out of your budget.
Additionally, when designing a custom engagement ring, you have the option to bring in your own materials such as a previously sourced diamond or a family heirloom that you would like to incorporate into your custom engagement ring. This may give you the opportunity to cut costs.
#3 You Can Get Creative
When it comes to designing your custom engagement ring there is no limit to how creative you can be. After all, the design should be a true reflection of your personalities combined and your love story as a couple. Jewelry designers aim to bring your story to life and the creative process is one to truly remember. Many PriceScopers have shared their creative direction with us on the forum. Check them out! Warning: you will get inspired.
#4 You Will Be Creating Something Unique
There’s nothing worse than receiving an engagement ring only to soon find out that there are many replicas of its kind out there. As much as ready-to-buy engagement rings are stunning, nothing can compare to a unique custom designed engagement ring. We believe that the engagement ring should be as unique as the person receiving it.
#5 You Will Be Working With An Expert
