What is the difference between unique engagement rings and bespoke engagement rings?
Most bespoke engagement rings are an interpretation of classic styles: solitaire, trilogy, art deco and the vintage era and so on. Bespoke allows you to expand upon a theme that best reflects your personality and sense of style. Your inspiration could come from your experiences of work and travel, your wardrobe or from fine art. I would even give you some of my own. By choosing this route for you unique ring, the possibilities are endless.
Unique Engagement Rings
Unique engagement rings allow you to expand upon the bespoke theme by mixing the classic styling with something a little more personal, unique and special to you.
Let me explain
My most recent example of this was when I met with a customer, and in our initial exploratory discussion, he explained to me his ideas on the sort of style of engagement ring that he wanted to achieve. We also discussed in greater detail, ideas on how to make the ring more personal and unique.
He told me a story about the humming birds he and his fiancee had seen on their foreign travels. With us having spoken at length, I knew that if I could find a way of adding a humming bird into the ring design it would give a ring a personal touch.
There is an art….
Taking on a commission like this for me is of course challenging, but also incredibly exciting and rewarding. The art, when creating a ring such as this, is not to lose sight of the fact that this is still to be an engagement ring, and therefore must be able to stand the test of time.
3D design process
From clients, perspective 3D designing has taken jewellery design to a whole new level, as it allows them to explore design options in away that was never possible before. They feel safe in the knowledge that not only can they amend the drawings, but they could also start again, without incurring any extra charges.
Of course, it also allows me far more scope when designing. I can create designs on the screen that were impossible to achieve before, from traditional sketching, and it also allows me to present a series of designs to my client for them to view and amend.
This modern approach to design completely removes the risk of creating anything but the perfect unique engagement ring design, especially with the added advantage of seeing a prototype of the design created first from my in-house 3D printer.
With the design finalised and the GIA certificated diamonds or the finest gemstones selected, I will handcraft the ring in my Hatton Garden workshop. Ready to be presented with a beautifully illustrated storybook that maps out how your Unique Engagement Ring was designed and crafted.
Please get in touch, as I would love to show you more of my unique engagement rings that I have designed and made, and explore how we could work together to create a ring that is unique, one of a kind and made just for you.
