When to Consider a Custom Engagement Ring

Custom rings are a great option, but they may not be for everyone. Maybe your partner has already found a ring that they love and wouldn't change a thing about it. Or perhaps they're happy with finding a ring from the building blocks that are already there: band color and metal, diamond or gemstones, and the size and setting. There are an infinite amount of styles that can be created from mixing and matching those features.
But, if you have a specific vision of how your fiancée's ring should look and you just can’t find it anywhere, a custom design might be just the thing.
