WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE A BESPOKE ENGAGEMENT RING?
Bespoke Engagement rings are unique and original designs that are a real one-off, reflect the personality and style of the intended wearer and are entirely personal to you.
And 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.
And today by incorporating Computer-Aided Design (3D CAD) techniques into the design process, a bespoke engagement ring costs less than you think.
Engagement RING DESIGNER David Law
Be inspired by my bespoke engagement rings, individually designed and handcrafted with love.
I have four decades of experience as an engagement ring designer and maker in London's famous Hatton Garden. And I am a pioneer in combining traditional manufacturing with the latest 3D (CAD) technology so you can have the confidence that I will be able to interpret your ideas and develop them with you into a stunning unique engagement ring.
My custom made engagement rings are tailor-made to your requirements, combining unparalleled beauty with expert craftsmanship.
You will work exclusively with me, receive expert help, advice and personal service throughout the design process.
THE bespoke DESIGN PROCESS
Bringing your design ideas to life
Your first design consultation is free and without any obligation to proceed. We'll discuss any ring design ideas you may have; I will inspire you with my thoughts, and you can explore my past commissions for added inspiration.
I will demonstrate how my unique design process works; we'll look at diamonds, gemstones and precious metals that are best suited to your skin tones, lifestyle and choice of gems.
While at the same time, working together to generate the inspiration to start the process of design.

3D CAD and 3D printing
3D (CAD DESIGNS )
Once I have a clear idea of the style of ring designs 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 as together we perfect the engagement ring designs ready for the next stage of your design journey.
VIEW AND WEAR BEFORE YOU BUY
With your choice of ring designs chosen, I will print them from the 3D printer for you to see and wear with your diamond(s) or coloured gemstones allowing you to select your final ring design with complete confidence and peace of mind.
Once you’ve finalised your design, I will send your 3D file for casting and then with meticulous detail handcraft your ring for you 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.
I will then 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.
How much do bespoke engagement rings cost?
My bespoke engagement rings start from about £1500, but you can spend considerably more than this. The price depends on many factors, but mainly on the characteristics of the gems, you select for your custom ring.
How long does the bespoke process take?
Although I have worked to very tight schedules, typically a bespoke engagement ring takes from design to handcrafting about three to four weeks.
What if I don't Live in London?
Many of my clients live outside of London, so I am very experienced in working with clients via Zoom. You still receive exceptional service and a bespoke ring that you'll cherish forever.
Can I use a family heirloom or my gemstones in my design?
YES. Remodelling a family heirloom, a sentimental jewellery piece or stones you have purchased on your travels into your bespoke engagement ring makes it even more unique personal and exclusive to you while keeping the old memories alive. Engagement ring settings start from about £750
Is there a charge for the first consultation?
The first exploratory consultation is free and without any obligation to buy. During the coronavirus social distancing measures, I can provide a consultation online via Skype or ZOOM or with a home garden visit.
What if I don't know what ring design I want?
Don't worry, many of my clients don't have a clear idea of precisely what they're looking for when they come to see me. As a designer, I will inspire you and will walk you through all the options asking you lots of questions that will help me create a list of design ideas to explore with you.
How much deposit do I have to pay?
My Initial deposit is £250 covering the creation of up to six unique ring design. Changes you would like to make. 3D printing of your designs and a choice of hand-picked gems. Once you have made your final choices, I will ask you to bring the deposit up to 50% with the balance on completion.
