You’ve got the girl, you’ve planned the perfect proposal and you’ve saved for months to buy the perfect ring. This is one of the biggest and most important investments you will ever make, so congrats on taking this first step towards research! For those of you who have no hints from your fiancée and aren’t having the best luck finding the perfect ring for her, it’s time you start thinking of a custom engagement ring. Not only will a custom ring add personal sentimentality which will score major points with your girl, but the end result will truly be one-of-a-kind. Here are 5 expert tips from Julie Martin, Founder & Designer of Scout Mandolin, on how to customize your engagement ring:
A thoughtful detail made for your eyes only, adding a birthstone or favorite gem on the inside of the band will add yet another sentiment to your engagement ring.
A sweet personalization of your fingerprint on the inside of the band she will feel every time she puts on her ring.
A hidden message that only you two know is there, a sweet note, coordinates of where you met, or the date of your wedding are all great ideas of engravings for the inside of the band.
Her ring should match her lifestyle and what she realistically wants to wear on her hand every day. If your bride-to-be is a nurse, she will most likely need something low profile so she can put gloves without it getting in the way.
These areas often go overlooked on rings. The gallery or inside of the ring is a blank palette where a custom detail can be added and can capture a memory and add extra sentiment. For example, one of my customers said “I love you” for the first time in Northern Ireland at a special place called The Dark Hedges. We created a beautiful motif of the dark hedges underneath the setting. Every time she puts her ring on, she remembers that special day.
