DESIGNING YOUR ENGAGEMENT RING
Designing an engagement ring is an exciting time for the buyer and the designer alike. A hands-on process that involves stone selection, setting and material selection, drawings, and final CAD-rendered plans, every ring is brought to life through the craftsmanship of our expert in-shop team.
For those new to the market, our entire process traditionally looks like this when designing your custom engagement ring in our Brisbane studio:
1. Contact Our Team
Clients connect with our Brisbane CBD studio to book an appointment and begin the review and design process.
2. Confirm price point, ideal metals, and potential stones
We confirm your expected budget, potential stones, and materials. Among the most common metals used to create engagement rings are yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, and platinum. Our master jewellers can review the benefits of each before you decide.
3. Review Recommended Settings and Diamonds
Based on these decisions, our team will present a select number of diamond ring settings, stones, and materials that meet your aesthetic vision and price needs.
4. Confirm stone grade and certification.
On closer inspection, some of our clients will want further information about their stone’s source, certification, or grade, whereas other clients will want to see several stone grades, carat sizes, and colours before deciding.
5. Review Design Plans
After material selection, our team creates a mock-up of the expected outcome, which the client reviews and confirms. From side stones to band engraving, we design dream rings by making them personalised for you and your loved one. Discover some of our recently completed rose gold and white gold rings handmade in the shop for inspiration.
6. Confirm Lead Time
The design process can vary based on your selected stone availability. If the chosen stone is in stock, our team will be able to schedule in studio time more quickly than stones that need to be sourced and secured. Your designer will be able to confirm lead time during the process once the final material selection has been decided.
7. See Your Final Engagement Ring in Real Time
Your ring is finalised and ready for review. The hard work is done -we welcome you to visit one of our studios in person or we can offer secure delivery for regionally based customers. With your custom engagement ring in hand, we’ll sign off your project with the best care instructions and well wishes for the years to come.
8. Post-purchase Support Options
Need additional support post-purchase? Our craftsmen are always available for post-purchase support, best care guidance, and adjustments, if needed. Please speak with your designer about ring warranties, size adjustments, and care practices at the time of purchase.
SHOPPING ENGANGEMENT RING FAQ
How much you spend on an engagement ring is a personal decision. We have high quality options ranging from $10,000 upwards, so budget is a conversation we’re happy to have. While traditional advice recommended “three months’ of salary,” that’s not a standard we adhere to.
The actual cost of your engagement ring will depend on:
- The materials you choose
- Stone setting
- Stone clarity
- Stone carat and size
- Complexity of the design
Each of these things has an impact on the cost of an engagement ring. We carry ring settings and stones to suit budgets of every size, so we can help you find a ring at your ideal price point.
There are no expectations for stone size, colourway or setting when it comes to engagement rings. The right engagement ring is one that’s personal to you and your partner.
It’s more important to choose a stone that matches your personality, likes, dislikes and ideal price. These factors all influence which stone you should choose, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to stone carat.
The only rule is that engagement rings should be personal to you and your partner. While diamond settings are popular, there are dozens of options for cut, size, clarity and the precious metals they’re paired with. This gives you complete freedom to design a ring as unique as your partner.
Engagement rings are worn every day for the rest of your life, so it’s important that we create a piece which reflects your vision. Our experienced craftsmen can guide you through selecting your setting, stone and materials, or we can work with any design you have in mind.
Certain cuts of diamonds give off an excellent sparkle, making the stone seem bigger. Emerald and oval cut stones typically catch light the best and look the biggest when set on a ring.
The cut isn’t the only factor that affects how large a diamond seems. The apparent size of the stone is also affected by its grade, which is made up of carat size, dimensions, clarity and colour. Talk to our designers if you are searching for a striking cut and we can help get the most from any stone.
That depends on the wearer! Some ring wearers will prefer white gold, and others will prefer yellow gold, but rose gold and platinum are great options too. It’s a good idea to choose precious metals that match your beloved’s regular jewellery selection. You can also match the engagement ring to the metal used for your wedding bands.
If you’re undecided as to which ring material is right, speak with one of our designers about your loved one and what you’re searching for.
Yellow Gold: Yellow gold is one of the most popular materials for engagement rings. Stunning, timeless and beautifully warm, yellow gold is the perfect accompaniment for every precious stone.
Rose Gold: Rose gold is becoming increasingly popular for engagement rings. With hints of blushing pink, rose gold is a unique metal that can make your engagement ring and setting stand out.
White Gold: White gold is a combination of yellow gold and silvery metals, like silver, palladium and platinum. The blend creates a durable, stunning material that’s resistant to wear and tear, making it perfect for engagement rings.
Platinum: Platinum is a white metal that shines like no other. Hardy, wear-resistant and known for maintaining its brightness over time, platinum is the ideal metal for your engagement ring.
