20 Sep Pros and Cons of Buying Custom Engagement Rings
Creating unique custom engagement rings has never been simpler or more affordable. While shopping for the “ONE RING” (to rule them all) you may discover you have unique taste; maybe you’re a trendsetter and you need “something fresh”, you’re a hipster and everything is “too mainstream”, or maybe you just want to “stand out!”. Whatever your reason, a custom engagement ring could be the right choice for you. Check out this short Video to see how simple it is to create your one-of-a-kind custom engagement ring.
Now that you know custom engagement rings are a possibility, here are some things you should know…
Pros and Cons of Custom Engagement Rings:
You can design your ring to match your style and personality. That probably says it all for the pros, but I’ll add some more to keep things interesting.
A custom ring will cost you more than an existing style with similar specs and quality; however, you should not pay thousands of dollars more or “custom fees” on top of the price. Getting a quality ring at a great value is possible with a good custom team.
Creating your own ring can be a fun and exciting experience…let’s make some memories!
Custom does take longer than selecting a ring that is currently in stock, so be sure to give yourself 3-4 weeks for the custom process. You can’t rush art!
Your ring can often be viewed by CAD (computer aided drafting) image before you approve it so you can make tweaks prior to actually making the ring. Ask your chosen jeweler if they offer this option.
Until your ring is finished, you can’t try it on, and with custom rings there are no exchanges or credits, the ring is yours to keep. Therefore, if computer rendered images and wax molds aren’t enough for you to feel comfortable with your choice, please choose a ring you can try on.
All of your friends will be jealous!…I can’t guarantee it, I just wanted to end on a pro.
