Design your Engagement Ring in Five Easy Steps
You can do it, just use your imagination and get started.
Determine her Unique. With all the mass produced rings sold by the big boxes and chains, what should be a precious moment in a guy's life, presenting a unique engagement ring to the love of his life, is simply copying what is already out. What is unique or special about this? And yet, an engagement ring is the most important piece of jewelry she will ever wear. And, it will be worn daily, unlike anything else in her wardrobe or jewelry box. And she wants it to be stunning, a reflection of you and your love and, of course, the envy of her circle of friends and co-workers.
Make it UNIQUE!
Design it to reflect her personality and style. Imagine her reaction when you slip it on for the first time?
Does "unique" depend on the size of the diamond? Of course not. But, unique does depend on your imagination and effort to understand her and be creative for her.
Thankfully, it is much easier today than ever before to select designs and provide your own input into the details of a unique engagement ring. Rings Unique does this all the time. Rings Unique will work with you to make your engagement ring special, and that moment of presenting it will be unforgettable as well, a memory for a lifetime.
The designer handcrafted rings on www.ringsunique.com present hundreds of splendid designs. And, most can be modified. It is easy to change a diamond to a sapphire, yellow gold to white gold or platinum, even have three colors of gold in the ring. We can change a gemstone setting from a prong style to a semi-bezel, or create a low-set diamond that works well for an active woman. Rings Unique happily provides sketches of your ideas or in some cases a wax or resin model to view first hand.
In addition to our designer custom rings, Rings Unique also offers computer aided design (CAD) which can adapt hundreds of design ideas to the perfect ring for you. With your imagination, our design capability on the world's most robust computer design platform, and the ease of emails back and forth, we can help you design and create the perfect ring for you.
Step 1. Select the Center diamond or gemstone. Then affirm the shape you want. This refers to round, square (princess cut), rectangle (emerald cut), radiant oval or cushion cut plus a few others. The standard gemstone is a round diamond but we also set round sapphires and rubies. We also use light blue gemstones such as aquamarines, blue zircons and a few others. Yellow or green are also fun colors for a unique center gemstone. For purple, we recommend a purple sapphire over an amethyst for better durability. For design purposes, the shape of the gemstone is the most important element because it leads to other design choices.
To re-cap, select the center stone, type-shape-color. Next we will concentrate on the unique engagement ring setting.
Step 2. Select the most ideal setting. Today’s most popular choice is a halo, a circle of diamonds all around the center gemstone. These can be a single, double or triple halo, easy to do. For our design here, we are going depart from the common halo by selecting a three-stone ring where the centerpiece is an oval diamond, about 1.00ct. The metal we are going to use is 14k white gold for the setting (head). We then have a choice of using white gold for the entire shank (the band) or change to a different color of gold. Notice that the center stone is a nice oval diamond and 4mm round diamonds are set on the sides. This three-stone setting design offers a low profile, perfect for an active woman and many opportunities for creativity.

Step 3. Select unique details to really make your ring unique. With this basic design, you could have some fun with gemstones on the side. You could select sapphires in a rainbow of colors, most persons would select blue but you could also choose pink or yellow. You could also select her birthstone, many websites detail these.
But, for this demo, we are going to select something a bit more unusual and unique for an engagement ring…an alexandrite, the birthstone for June. Alexandrites are multi-hued gemstones which reveal many different colors depending on the light surrounding the ring. Generally, there is an initial green to blue color with purple, red and fuschia overtones. Alexandrite has very rare color-change in a gemstone. Originally discovered in Russia’s Ural Mountains in the 1830s, it’s now found in Sri Lanka, East Africa, and Brazil, but fine material is exceptionally rare and valuable, sometimes more expensive than diamonds. Here’s how this would look.

Step 4. Confirm her finger size. This unique engagement ring could be your final selection and with the proper finger size, we could get started. But for additional uniqueness, we are going to change the color of the shank to 14k rose gold, a seldom used but beautiful soft feminine color on a woman’s finger.

Step 5. Final considerations and order. Once again, the above ring could be the final look for a unique engagement ring, so pretty and unusual, a treasure to look at every day for a lifetime. But, there is one additional option, the color of the setting. This could be rose gold as well. This picture shows this version, lovely.
