Planning a Future Together Starts with your Engagement Ring

For some couples, the perfect engagement ends with the perfect ring, chosen as a surprise by their beloved.

But for many a proposer – and propose – there is nothing that they dread more than picking the wrong ring, or having the wrong ring picked for them. How can they start a life together if their intended doesn’t even know what ring will suit them best?!

So how’s this for an idea: start building your future together, by building a bespoke engagement ring together first? Bespoke jewellery is such a romantic gesture, and a bespoke engagement ring created together is the perfect way to start married life.

Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas:


The beauty of bespoke jewellery is the fact that you can fill it with sentimentality.

Think about what is special to you as a couple: does your married name have a meaning that you could incorporate into a ring? Did you get engaged somewhere special, and is there any symbolism from this that could be added to your engagement ring? Or perhaps you’d like to copy a piece worn by your mother or grandmother as a nod to them?


Of course, you don’t just have to choose clear coloured stones and a white or yellow gold band if you opt for bespoke jewellery for your engagement ring. You could pick a funky black band, or if you opt for a traditional band, could you incorporate your birth stones into the design?


Any engagement ring should be a good fit for your finger, but by choosing a bespoke engagement ring together, you can also choose your wedding rings to match and fit with your engagement ring.

This means that if you opt for an unusual design, shape or stone setting, a bespoke wedding ring can be created to fit together perfectly with your engagement ring. Just like a married couple fit together perfectly…


This is the very reason for choosing a bespoke engagement ring together: there’s no pressure on the person proposing to get it right. By choosing and creating a bespoke ring together, you can build something which exactly suits your style.

There’s no compromise, there’s no thinking “I like it but I’d love it if…”, your ring will be exactly as you want it to be. That’s the beauty of bespoke jewellery.
