If you and your partner have decided to design your own wedding rings, you’ll no doubt find it a rewarding process that allows you lots of fun and creative freedom. However, before you start getting to work, there are a few things you should know. Read on for some pointers that will help you through the process:
Your Jeweler Makes All The Difference
Not all jewelers are created equal. You may know that already. However, it’s important to reiterate it here. Your jeweler is going to make all the difference to your journey. They will help you to get all of your ideas out on paper, educate you about things you need to know about, such as various metals and VVS diamonds, and then create a high quality wedding ring exactly to your specifications. Make sure you do your research on various jewelers, reading reviews and testimonials and asking questions to make sure you find the one that’s right for you.
You Don’t Have To Know What You Want Before You Begin The Process
Providing you find the right jeweler, as outlined above, you don’t have to know what you want before you begin the process. You can have a completely blank canvas, and your jeweler will ask you questions to get a feel for the sort of rings you’d love forever.
Don’t avoid this process just because you don’t have any ideas yet. The right jeweler will help you to come up with some awesome ideas.
It Can Take Months To Design The Perfect Wedding Ring
Don’t start designing your wedding rings in a panic a few weeks before the wedding. Designing the perfect wedding ring could take months, and even once you’ve finalised the design it can take around 6 months to create. Make sure you leave plenty of time for adjustments!
It’s Probably Not As Expensive As You Think
A lot of people don’t design their own wedding rings because they think it’s going to be far more expensive. However, this isn’t always the case. It’s probably not as expensive as you think to design a wedding ring, depending on the jeweler you choose and the materials you want to incorporate.
Your Ring Must Fit In With Your Lifestyle
You could spend hours and hours designing the most beautiful ring you’ve ever seen, but if that ring doesn’t fit in with your lifestyle, what’s the point? You need a ring you’re going to be able to wear most days, no matter what you’re doing. That’s the whole idea: you don’t take this ring off. Maybe for a gym session, or to go swimming, or if you’re working with power tools – but the rest of the time, you’re wearing the ring. You need to be able to wear it if you’re going out with your friends, if you have a professional function, to work every day; it should fit in seamlessly with your wardrobe and style, as well as the way you live your life.
