Why choose a made-to-order engagement ring?

Why choose a made-to-order engagement ring?: Image 1 Searching for the perfect ring to propose should be a memorable experience but can get stressful when there's an overwhelming selection to choose from.

To make things easier you can always opt for a custom-designed ring. Family-run jewellers Charles Nobel based in New Milton, Hampshire offers a tailor-made ring service and are experts in the field. Here they share their insider knowledge on why to go bespoke:

Design something special
One of the most enjoyable parts of having an engagement ring made to order is that you get to define all the creative details. Do some detective work and find out exactly what styles of rings your partner likes and share this with your jeweller. The idea is to express meaning so the ring itself can become part of your engagement story.

Cost-effective approach
An engagement ring can be an expensive purchase. It's important to set a budget before you go into any jewellery store. However, going the custom-made route can save you money as you can take inspiration from high-end rings but scale down on the overall cost by using different materials such as a different colour or size for the centre stone.

Demonstrate your love
Presenting your partner with a one-of-a-kind engagement ring shows your commitment and the extra effort and personal sentimental value is sure to not go unnoticed. There are plenty of other reasons to consider a bespoke engagement ring. If you're thinking you'd like a made-to-order ring when you propose then start taking the time now to notice your partner's likes and dislikes. Their favourite colours, materials, design, weight and size of jewellery along with other preferences will all help when the time comes. The knowledge you gain will also help with any future jewellery buys too!
