Congratulations! Whether you’ve decided to go with a ring design that features diamonds a la Elizabeth Taylor or you’ve opted for a plain band with an Elvish inscription, you’ve passed the first hurdle. The next step will be to choose a diamond(s) for your custom wedding ring. Of course, the size of your diamond will vary based on your personal taste and budget. What kind or shape of diamond, however, will depend largely on your style. If you opt for an opulent, Taylor-esque ring, take a look at Asscher cut diamonds (this is the same cut as the infamous Krupp diamond that Taylor received from Richard Burton). If the Elvish engraved band is more your style, consider choosing round or princess cut diamonds. These cuts look dazzling in solitaire settings and will leave you with plenty of room to inscribe a romantic message or date inside the ring. Choose Your Wedding Ring Setting. You already know what style you want, now it’s just time to see if the jeweler you picked already has something, or if you’ll be getting your custom design on more seriously. The setting is what takes your diamond and transforms it from a beautiful stone to a breathtaking wedding ring.
Start Your Ring Search Early. Once you have a basic idea of what kind of ring you`d like, it`s time for the fun part: trying them on! Give yourselves at least two to three months before the wedding date to ring shop. You`ll need this time to browse, research prices and revisit rings that catch your eye. If you have your heart set on a custom ring, you`ll probably need even more time. And keep in mind: Extras, like engraving, can take up to one month. Mix It Up. Don`t fret if you like platinum and your partner likes yellow gold. There`s no rule that says you have to choose the same metal or even style. You could compromise with braided bands that blend the two metals together or just be totally different—the key to finding something you both love is choosing wedding bands that reflect your individual styles. Set a Budget. Shop with the assumption that you`ll spend about 3 percent of your total wedding budget on the rings. Depending on the retailer, a plain, 14-karat gold or simple platinum band can cost around $1,000. Embellishments, like diamonds or engraving, will quickly add to the cost, so factor that into your budget if you plan to personalize your rings with any of these extras. The price of engraving is usually based on the number of characters, the font used and whether it`s engraved by hand or machine (hand is usually pricier). Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind.

By putting your knowledge of each other together, you might come up with an idea you couldn’t have alone - a sign of a great marriage! Don’t forget to have fun with it; this is a great time to let your creativity run wild. Once you’ve got your ideas solidified, it’s time to take the process to a jeweler (one that creates custom rings like Brilliance) and watch them come to life. No part of the process is more enjoyable than that! Choose a Stone for Your Wedding Ring. So you`ve decided on the style for your customized wedding ring, and now you’ve found a jeweler to help you make it.
