When you are shopping for an engagement ring, it is easy to get caught up in the four Cs – carat, cut, clarity, and color. However, there is so much more to picking out the perfect ring than just those four characteristics. In order to find a ring that is truly unique and special, you need to put some thought into how you can add a personal touch. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
One way to make your ring extra special is to add a sentimental element. This could be something like having the inside of the band engraved with your wedding date or a special message. You could also include a family heirloom as part of the design. For example, if your grandmother had a diamond brooch that you loved, you could ask one of Tobin Jewelers’ skilled goldsmiths if they could incorporate it into the design of your ring.
If you want your ring to stand out from the crowd, pick an unusual setting. Think outside of the traditional prong setting and consider a bezel or tension setting instead. Or, go for something truly unique and include a colored gemstone or a unique diamond cut.
When most people think of engagement rings, they picture a white gold or platinum band with a diamond solitaire. But there is no rule that says your ring has to be made from traditional materials. If you want your ring to be truly unique, consider using an unexpected metal like rose gold or even black titanium.
Another way to add a personal touch to your engagement ring is to incorporate birthstones. This is especially meaningful if you and your fiancé have birthdays that are close together. You could include both of your birthstones in the design of the ring or even use them as accents on either side of the center stone.
If you really want your engagement ring to stand out, ditch the diamond and go for colored gemstones instead. Sapphires and emeralds are always popular choices, but you can pick any stone you love. Just make sure that it is high quality so that it will withstand daily wear and tear.
The best way to ensure that your engagement ring is one-of-a-kind is to have it custom-made at Tobin Jewelers. This will allow you to control every aspect of the design process and create a truly unique piece perfect for you and your fiancé.
There are lots of ways that you can add a personal touch to your engagement ring, so don’t settle for anything less than perfect! Pick out a design that perfectly suits you and your fiancé’s style and personality, and enjoy wearing it for many years to come.
