Bespoke engagement rings london
Capture your unique love story with a bespoke engagement ring designed and handcrafted especially for you
Engagement Ring Designer
As a bespoke engagement ring designer-maker, my job is to interpret my client's ideas and develop them into a series of design concepts and wax ring models before handcrafting the chosen ring in my London's Hatton Garden workshop.
DESIGN YOUR OWN
WHAT IS A BESPOKE ENGAGEMENT RING ?
Bespoke Engagement rings are unique and original designs that are a real one-off, reflect the intended wearer's personality and style and are entirely personal to you.
There is nothing more romantic than presenting your loved one with a ring that can't be found or seen on anyone else's finger and that you have helped to design.
HOW MUCH IS A BESPOKE ENGAGEMENT RING?
The cost of your bespoke ring will be influenced by the style, precious metals, and your choice of diamonds and gemstones. Today a custom made engagement ring by combining traditional manufacturing with 3D CAD costs less than you would imagine.
Being a custom made engagement ring, I can offer the best choice in unique designs and gemstones that fit your budget. Typically a platinum bespoke diamond engagement rings start from £1,500

FIRST STAGED PAYMENT
With the design brief agreed, I will ask you to pay the first deposit of £250. To cover an initial choice of six unique and original ring designs to see on screen, printed from the 3D printed for you to try on, any changes you would like me to make and a choice of gemstones.
HOW DOES THE RING DESIGN PROCESS WORK?
3D (CAD DESIGNS )
Once I have a clear idea of the style of rings you would like to see I will set about in my design studio, creating a series of six one-offs, engagement ring designs for you to view and admire in stunning and realistic 3D.
We'll then collaborate to perfect the ring designs ready for the next stage of your design journey.
VIEW AND WEAR BEFORE YOU BUY
I will print your chosen designs from the 3D printer allowing you to see and wear along with your diamond(s) or coloured gemstones enabling you to select your ring design with complete confidence and peace of mind.
DIAMONDS AND PRECIOUS METALS
All of my diamond I present are GIA certificated and adhere to the Kimberley Process. If you are looking to make your ring with ethically sourced diamonds from Canada, I can source them along with lab-grown diamonds and a Moissanite diamond alternative. And I can make your ring with Fairtrade gold.
And if you are looking to add a splash of colour to your ring I can source the finest coloured gemstones from around the world for you choose from.
SECOND STAGED PAYMENT
With your ring design and gemstones agreed, your unique engagement ring is ready to go into manufacture, and I will ask you to pay the second payment to bring the deposit up to 50% less the £250 already paid.
Once you've finalised your ring choice, I will send your 3D file for casting and then finish your ring for you by hand in a traditional way in my Hatton Garden workshop.
Your chosen gemstones and diamonds are then set by hand by my expert diamond setters who have generations of experience in the industry.
Finally, I will send your ring for hallmarking which certifies its metal fineness. The inside of your ring will feature a series of stamps. Indicating the metal type, the year of its production, my Company sponsor mark and a London assay mark.

GEMSTONE ENGAGEMENT RINGS
White and natural coloured diamonds will always occupy a special place in the world of the engagement ring. The modern woman is feeling much more adventurous. Some for ethical reason are choosing lab-grown diamonds or moissanite. But the most significant increase is in gemstone engagement rings.
The hardest gemstone and the most popular is the Sapphires that come not just in blue but in an array of stunning colours yellow, purple, pink orange and green, followed by the ruby. But there are many more stunning gemstones that I can propose to you for your consideration.
