Your wedding ring should be as unique as you are and sometimes, that means getting a customized wedding set.
With so many generic choices available out there, I know some people may prefer to get a special one-of-a-kind wedding band that represents the bond you share with your loved one.
Now, “customizing” actually means different things to different people, and different things to different jewelers. For example, you can “customize” an engagement ring online by choosing a design from various settings and different types of diamonds.
Alternatively, you can customize a wedding ring by meeting with a jeweler and designing something from scratch. As with all things related to rings and diamonds, your budget may be the main determining factor in how much customization is involved.
Contrary to what you may think, customization can actually help you stay within a smaller budget. It’s kind of like ordering a pizza – you pick and choose the ingredients, and if you’re limited by budget, you can stick only with fewer, quality toppings (like a handsome rock) and go without the extras.
If you know your budget from the outset, you can work with a jeweler in creating a customized ring that fits the price plan and still end up with a unique ring.
Now, the problem with jewelers that offer matching wedding sets for both the engagement and wedding rings is that there are limited designs available to choose from. With the customized option, you can have matching pieces and include a personal touch at the same time.
If you need a walkthrough on the process of customizing a ring, this informative write up is very detailed on the steps that are undertaken when a client engages us for a project.
Do you want another great reason to customize your bridal and wedding set?
You can make it even more sentimental by incorporating existing family jewelry, such as your grandmother’s wedding band or a piece from your fiancé’s family history.
Any heirloom pieces from necklace parts to earrings can be combined to create a truly unique and heartfelt piece. Who knows, the sentimental value may be worth more than the jewelry itself, and you might end up looking at it day after day.
If your family has a strong Irish background, you can consider a Celtic theme. Or if you’re into the contemporary look, you can create stunning intertwining rings. The point I want to bring across is that any type of theme can be incorporated to express your unique union.
Another benefit of going customized is that your guy might enjoy having more involvement in the process. The tradition of surprising a bride-to-be with an engagement ring is not always how things are done these days (although there’s nothing wrong with tradition!). .Customized rings offer your fiancé a chance to be involved and turns jewelry shopping into a great bonding process.
Want to Know a Secret?
A lot of guys really get into the whole design thing, and care a lot more about the rings you’ll both be wearing than they care to admit. In the relative privacy of the jewelry store, or if you’re doing your ring shopping online, you can offer them the safety and security to let their creative side out.
Work together on creating a custom wedding and engagement ring set and you’ll not only have fun in the process, but you’ll end up with rings that have a lot of emotional value since you created them together.
Lastly, shopping together will also give you a better sense of his style. This can help you determine ahead of time how much involvement he should have in decorating the living room. : )
