Bespoke Jewellery: How to Design Your Own Wedding Ring
The wedding ring in which you present to your spouse is a symbol of eternal love. Just like there is no end to a circle, a wedding ring symbolises infinite love and the devotion you have for each other. Therefore, this single piece of bespoke jewellery can be considered as the most important piece of a wedding ceremony.
If you are planning on designing your very own wedding ring, every detail counts. The great thing about wedding jewellery is that it provides the opportunity for you to be creative with symbolism. To translate how you truly feel about your fiancé through a single piece of craftmanship.
But with so much pressure to get it right, you may not know where to even start. Below we have created our guide on how to design your own wedding ring:
Firstly, before making any plans on the aesthetics of your bespoke jewellery, decide on what you want it to represent. Consider any dates, names or quotes you may want to include, which represents your relationship. Many people choose to include a romantic quote which reflects their love to increase its sentimental value.
You could also ask your jeweller which patterns or shapes are also available, for a more intricate design.
Choose Your Stone
Engagement rings usually feature a stone as the centre of their design. While most people opt for a diamond to keep in with tradition, coloured stones are also available.
To further personalise your bespoke jewellery, you could consider yours or their birthstone. This could make the design even more unique to your fiancé and add colour to your engagement ring.
Select Your Metal
Once you have chosen your stone, it’s time to choose your metal. With a selection of metals to choose from, each come with their own benefits and different price tags. Gold is the traditional choice; however different undertones can symbolise different meanings.
It can also help to take into consideration which metal your spouse tends to wear the most. Take a peek at their current jewellery collection if you can, for inspiration.
