Happiness is Handmade: For Truly Unique Engagement Rings

If there’s one thing all couples looking for bridal jewelry have in common, it’s that they’d like to find a diamond engagement ring that’s truly one of a kind. Our talented master jewelers have designed and crafted thousands of beautiful diamond truly unique engagement rings, and no two have been exactly alike. Instead, each one is a unique creation, made to celebrate one specific romance for all time.

Your journey to a handmade ring begins with a few simple questions. The first thing to think about is the shape of the center stone: this is the large diamond that is the star of your engagement rings. Round, cushion and square diamonds are among the most popular choices currently. Classic cuts like the princess, marquise and baguette are perennial favorites.

It’s important to make sure that your diamonds come with a GIA certification. We hand select every diamond we sell in order to make sure it is a best in class example of its type: when compared to other diamonds of the same cut, size, and color, the one we have to show you will have the best luster and shine because we deal exclusively in Triple Excellent Cut Grade stones.

When considering the size of your diamond, the most important criteria can be how the stone looks on the hand. Bridal jewelry is jewelry that is worn not just for a season, but for a lifetime. That’s why it is a good idea to see diamonds in several different sizes so you can really understand what the ring will look like when you’re wearing it on an everyday basis. Our private showroom is a no-stress, no sales pressure environment. You’ll also be able to see diamonds in different colors, should that be of interest to you.

The next questions will be about your personal style preferences. We are always happy to look at pictures of engagement rings you like, as well as your own design ideas or sketches. During this part of the process, it’s very possible that numerous quick sketches will be done as part of the process of understanding your vision. Once that point has been reached, more formal sketches are prepared.

This is the most fun part of the process for many of our customers. Your suggestions and refinement of the sketch play a huge role in making it uniquely yours. There are so many design options, including adding additional diamonds or colored gemstones, engraving or scrollwork, changing the height or shape of the mount and more that result in a ring that is genuinely one of a kind.

Our team will prepare a wax model so you can try on your custom engagement ring. That’s the best way to ensure that you love how it looks and feels on your hand. Alterations can happen at this point in the process to make sure the fit is comfortable and secure. Then our master jewelers individually hand craft your engagement ring, using their decades of skill and the finest materials.  It’s a very personalized process that can take place fairly quickly: our team has such tremendous experience and focus that we can often deliver a completely custom handmade diamond engagement ring within two weeks.
