Tips on How to Build Your Own Ring

Customized jewelry has its own special touch. When you know that an item was created by you, for you, it gives the final product a much more personal feel. Many jewelry stores now offer the service of building your own ring. If you have a clear idea of exactly what you want, this is a great opportunity to take advantage of.

Be sure of the design

Perhaps you want a copy made of your mother’s wedding ring. Or perhaps you want your engagement ring to match your favorite necklace. Whatever the reason is build your own ring, you must make sure you are fully satisfied with the design. You will be spending a lot of time and money and do not want the efforts to be wasted. Sketch it out, find models that look similar and be sure that the design is exactly what you want.

Choose your metals

Most fine rings are made from gold and the softness or quality of the gold can depend on the carat. 24 carat (24K) is pure gold and is quite soft. That is why it is usually alloyed with other metals to make it more usable and durable, creating mixtures of 18K, 14K and so forth. You have the option to choose white gold as well, a mixture made from gold and at least one white metal such as platinum. If you are looking for something less expensive, you can choose silver. A more expensive option than both gold and silver could be platinum.

Choose your stone

If you are looking for a diamond ring, there are different cuts, carat weight and clarity you can choose from. The one-carat princess cut diamond is large and most sought after. If you are looking for something unique, you can choose one or a combination of precious gems. Rubies and emeralds are of the many precious stones you can choose to have fitted when you build your own ring. You can pair them with a smaller sized diamond for a complete look.

Choose Your Setting

Most jewelry stores will show you samples of the different ways you can set your stones in your ring. Perhaps you are looking for a ring which raises the diamond, or perhaps you want something that encloses the diamond within the ring.

Finalize Once More

Once you have chosen everything, you must now finalize the design once more. This is an important investment and you want to make sure everything is just right! Some jewelry stores have computer programs, which will allow you to see a sample of what your chosen ring will look like.
