Designing a wedding ring for your partner may seem like a hefty challenge. However, it is one that is definitely worthwhile. Your bride-to-be is going to be the only person in the entire world with that ring – it doesn’t get much more special than that. Moreover, it presents you with the opportunity to personalise the ring and make it relevant to the relationship you and your partner share. This really adds a depth of meaning to the wedding band and is something your partner will certainly appreciate.
The first thing you need to do when designing a wedding ring is find out your partner’s ring size. This is imperative. Imagine how bad it would be if she said ‘I do’, then you went to put the ring on your partner’s finger only for it to not fit. There are two tried and tested methods of finding out your girlfriend’s ring size. One is to swipe a ring from her jewellery box without her realising. Make sure it is one you have seen her wear before. In addition to this, you could always ask someone close to her, such as her mum.
Once you have sorted out the ring size the fun really begins. You can start thinking about the design of the ring. You can assess your girlfriend’s current jewellery style and you can also ask for advice. Nevertheless, it is important to consider the diamond you select in relation to her hand shape. You want to make sure the sparkler looks right on your girlfriend’s hand. If you don’t want to take any risks then a princess, a radiant, an Asscher or a cushion diamond is flattering to all hand shapes. For those with long and slender fingers an emerald or a pear is the best option. On the other hand, a heart or marquise diamond is ideal for those with small hands and short fingers. Considering suitability is something a lot of people overlook. However, it is highly recommended because the last thing you want to do is return the ring because your girlfriend does not think it looks nice on her. This is especially the case when you have decided on going for a custom made ring. After all, how can you return bespoke wedding rings?
Last but not least, a final aspect you will want to consider when designing your own wedding ring is engraving. Engraving has become extremely popular over the last few years. It gives you the opportunity to incorporate a special message within the ring. There are lots of brilliant suggestions. From the date of the wedding, to your horoscopes and star signs, to ‘Mr & Mrs’, to religious quotes, to something personal and funny to both of you; the options are endless. This is a great way to really make the ring personal to you both – as mentioned in the introduction.
Now the only thing left to do is go shopping!
