Custom Design Engagement Rings vs. Ready-to-Wear: Which option is better for you?

When it comes to choosing an engagement ring, you have two main options: custom design or a ready-to-wear ring. Both options have their own unique benefits, and the right choice for you will depend on your personal preferences and needs. Schedule a complimentary consultation with us here to find your perfect match. 

Ready-to-Wear Engagement Rings

Ready-to-wear engagement rings are pre-made rings that are available for purchase right off the shelf. They come in a wide range of styles, designs, and price points, making them a popular choice for many people. If you’re looking for a quick and convenient option, a ready-to-wear ring might be the perfect choice for you.

Advantages of ready-to-wear engagement rings include:

  • Convenience: You can purchase a ready-to-wear ring quickly and easily, without having to wait for a custom design to be created.

  • Price: Ready-to-wear rings are often more affordable than custom design rings although this is not always the case.

  • Selection: With so many ready-to-wear rings available, you’re sure to find a style and design that you love.

Custom Design Engagement Rings

Custom design engagement rings are unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that are created specifically for you. This option is perfect for those who want a truly unique and personal engagement ring that reflects their love and commitment. 

Advantages of custom design engagement rings include:

  • Personalisation: With a custom design ring, you have complete control over the style, design, and details of your ring. You can choose the stone, setting, and metal to create a ring that perfectly represents your love and commitment.

  • Uniqueness: Custom design engagement rings are truly one-of-a-kind, making them a meaningful and special choice for your engagement.
