Each love is as unique as the people in the relationship. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.” Therefore, when it’s time for you to shop for engagement rings and finally ask for your sweetheart’s hand in marriage, you’d want a ring that is deeply personal and one of a kind. It’s a good thing established jewellers in London, such as Burt and Gurt Jeweller Ltd, can provide you with well-made and well-designed bespoke engagement rings.
Needless to say, you’ll have to put in a bit of effort and a lot of research on the design of the bespoke engagement ring. Whether you’ll design it with your fiancé or make it as a surprise, the following are some helpful tips you ought to keep in mind:
Be a Detective
How well do you know your partner’s taste in jewellery? What are her favorite accessories and preferred style? If you’re in the dark as to the answers of the aforementioned questions, it’s time for you to get a clue and solve the mystery. Inspect the jewellery, especially the rings, which your loved one usually wears. You might want to incorporate the theme or “look” that your beloved prefers, such as vintage, contemporary, or classic simple. You could also check where he or she typically purchases her jewellery and visit the shop for more ideas.
A bespoke engagement ring isn’t just about the person who will wear it; it’s also about the two of you—so you might want to infuse a bit of your personality or character into the ring. Maybe add a piece or a design element that reflects you, but is also complemented by the design details that suit your sweetheart. Since emotions and personal traits are a challenge to translate into a concrete, non-literal form, you may help your bespoke jeweller in designing the ring by writing a short paragraph that describes how your partner inspires you and what he or she is like. By doing so, you and your jeweller will be able to identify designs and details that embody what you want the ring to “say”.
Think of the Wedding Bands
Ideally, wedding rings should go with the engagement rings. Both rings are worn together and you’d want them to look great together. So as you design the engagement ring, don’t forget to think ahead and see to it that it would harmoniously match your wedding rings. Regardless if you also wish to invest in bespoke wedding rings, make sure that you only work with a reputable jeweller who has the experience and skills to create the ring that perfectly captures and represents your love.
