Whether you have an exact idea about what you want for your engagement ring and just need a little help bringing it to life, or you don’t have any idea whatsoever, the process of designing the piece that you will wear every day as a symbol of your love is one to cherish.
There are a few key things that every woman wants in an engagement ring: to perfectly embody your style, to be a timeless keepsake that you will still love in 50 years’ time, and to make all of your girlfriends envious.
At Micheli Jewellery we are here to help you through every step of the process of creating your custom engagement ring, but there are a few key decisions that you will need to make along the way.
This is where you really need to decide on the essence of your engagement ring. The style of the ring is important as it is a piece you are likely to wear every day for the foreseeable future. Because of this, it needs to fit seamlessly with your everyday fashion style and personality.
Another style element to consider is whether you would like a classic, everlasting ring style, or a unique design that has never been seen before. Have a look on Pinterest and some jewellery blogs and gather images of engagement ring designs that you like and bring them along to show your jeweller.
After you have decided on the perfect ring style, you need to pick the perfect stone to be the centre of the whole design. There are a number of different gemstone cuts for you to choose from such as Round, Heart, Emerald, Asscher, Marquise, Pear, Radiant and Princess, your jeweller will help you to select a cut that will fit your design the best.
Another consideration to make is the colour you would like the stone to be, there are a variety of gemstones that provide different colours, or you could opt for a classic white diamond colour. Keep an eye on the Micheli Blog as we’ll be going into more depth about coloured stones in the coming weeks.
Choosing the metal type can be either the easiest or the hardest decision of the whole process. The options available include yellow gold, white gold, rose gold and platinum, not to mention a combination of metals
A great place to start is thinking about what colour appeals to you the most and contemplate how it will go with the stone you have chosen. It also pays to consider what colour metal the other jewellery you have is and how your engagement ring will match it.
Overall, the key is to go with what your heart is drawn to and you shouldn’t go wrong.
