Custom Engagement Rings
The bond you share as a couple is undeniably unique; your engagement ring should reflect that bond.
Purchasing an engagement ring is exciting. It represents your unique bond and the commitment made to each other as a couple. If you have began to search for a suitable ring – only to find that the designs on offer aren’t to your taste – then it may be time to consider having a piece custom made.
Custom designed rings give you the freedom to create a piece of jewellery exactly as you want it – from the choice of stone to the style of setting, and even the type of precious metal used.
About engagement rings

The history of the engagement ring is debatable, as there is evidence that supports the use of rings spanning various civilizations and time periods. From cavemen who tied braided grass around their partners’ wrists, to Egyptians buried circa 2800 BC with rings on the third finger of their left hand, there are many instances where apparent engagement rings have surfaced throughout history.
However, one of the first official recorded uses of an engagement ring occurred in 1477 when the Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy with a ring. The ring was set with thin, flat pieces of diamonds in the shape of an “M.”
The use of engagement rings increased from this point forward; today, engagement rings can take many forms, using diamonds, sapphires, opals or other gems with special meaning to the wearer. Increasingly couples like to create their own custom engagement ring with special significance just for them.
When it comes to selecting an engagement ring, there are many types to choose from. Aside from the type of stone(s) and precious metal to be used, the main consideration is how the stone(s) will be set in the ring. Some of the most popular settings include:
Solitaire: Solitaire rings carry one single stone; elegant and simple, they are perhaps the most common style of ring in modern times. To ensure the stone captures the light and emits maximum brilliance, it is often set high above the ring itself. This classic design is ideal for those who appreciate stylish simplicity.
Halo: Often intricate in design, a typical halo ring features a larger centre stone surrounded by a ‘halo’ of smaller stones. The halo increases the ring’s sparkle, provides a stylish boarder decoration to a main stone and can make the centre stone look larger.
Trilogy: Trilogy rings generally incorporate three stones in a row; these stones symbolise a couple’s past, present and future together. The centre stone is often larger with two smaller side stones to present optimal proportions. The centre stone can be set a little higher to give the ring depth and enhance its brilliance.
Pave: Taking its name from the French word for ‘paved’, pave rings are essentially paved in the stone of choice. Covering much of the metal surface, this type of setting is suited to those who want to obtain maximum brilliance and sparkle.
