Already have a Custom Engagement Ring Idea?
Sometimes you already have an idea and dreaming about every little detail of your wedding is overwhelming if you try hard to faithfully reproduce those visions. Having a custom ring idea isn’t uncommon, and if yours is one-of-a-kind, you may want to consider trying to create a rough draft of your vision before showing up at the nearest jeweler to see what they can do. This is not just to get the idea down on paper before you lose the minor details, but also to give it to the right jeweler who is experienced with customizing jewelry, like Oletowne Jewelers.

Communication is Key
This carries over from the previous point, where you are the only person who has the ability to see to it that your ring is made to your likings, no matter how experienced we are, we aren’t mind-readers, communication is key. You’ll need to speak up if you feel like our advice sounds good, but it still isn’t what you wanted. It’s like going to a dealership wanting to buy a shiny metallic car, but walking out with a matte finished car because the dealer convinced you that the fingerprints and blemishes are not worth the hassle and matte is just a superior style right now.
You don’t want to be sitting at home wondering what your engagement ring would have turned out like if you just stuck to your design you came up with originally.
Now, with all of that said, it’s imperative to have your custom ring covered with a proper warranty, so that you get exactly what you paid for and that the craftsmanship holds up through normal wear and tear just like any normal ring would. Make sure your ring is insured because it would be extra devastating if you lost your dream ring for good and didn’t have the financial means to ever have it replaced.
