Recently a client of mine came in to design a custom engagement ring. Like many of my customers, they come to me with an idea of what they want their ring to look like. Some want to incorporate unique elements to add more meaning to their custom engagement ring. This particular client wanted to use her birthstone to give it a unique look.
Since her birthstone was red, we decided to add a rose gold element to the ring on the side. This gave her engagement ring a more personalized look and feel. During the design process, it got me thinking about how people often focus on the look of custom rings and often overlook the importance that meaning plays in design a custom engagement ring.
CUSTOM DESIGNS DO NOT HAVE TO MEAN COMPLETELY UNIQUE
One of the many misconceptions about custom diamond rings is that they need to look very different from traditional engagement ring designs. This isn’t the case at all. In fact, a custom designed ring doesn’t mean that it has to be different or completely unique – rather it means that you can create exactly what you want whether it’s very simple or very complex. Custom means the design and meaning derived from the design is completely up to you.
CUSTOM RINGS CREATE NEW MEANING
Custom designed rings give you a ring with meaning. It allows you to assign meaning to any aspect of the rings design. Remember that it doesn’t have to have meaning for others who look at the ring – it just needs to have meaning for you specifically.
When you get a custom designed engagement ring from Livia Diamonds, no two rings are ever the same. We design it so there is a unique element to all rings and you ring is a product of your input in the design process.
When you sit down with Aret to design a ring, he will try to help you bring more meaning to the rings design. He will ask you questions about how you met, important milestones in your life, memorable trips, and other things that could be used as symbolic meaning in your rings design.
Remember that your engagement ring is a reflection of love and your relationship and adding meaningful elements to your rings enhances the custom ring design experience.
