One of the most meaningful gifts you’ll ever buy, an engagement ring is never simply another piece of jewellery. A jewel invested with all your hopes and dreams; it promises not just your love for eternity but requests the same in return. Which is a big ask for a small thing — so why not make your engagement ring unique to you both?
An off-the-shelf, ready-to-wear ring — worn by thousands of others — won’t genuinely reflect your story. Mass-produced and picked from a shop window…how could it? But by commissioning a bespoke engagement ring, you can highlight significant, deeply personal elements of your romantic journey in the design details and precious stones you choose. From cryptic inscriptions to hidden gems, think of it as creating a wonderfully personal, jewelled language only you and your loved one understand. For example, I recently designed an aquamarine and diamond engagement ring that featured a filigree ‘lotus flower’ pattern, created especially because the client’s girlfriend is from Hong King.
Traditionally, these stories represent significant chapters in our life, such as an engagement or marriage. Inimitable jewels that encapsulate your love story; such special pieces can contain secret details, from inscriptions to hidden gems, known only to you and your lover.
Custom-made jewellery is also a delightfully tangible way to remember a loved one, or a defining moment such as a graduation, milestone birthday, promotion or retirement. Or you can simply commission a work to let your individuality shine — there are no rules!
The story behind the jewel is yours, so shouldn’t you choose how it’s told?
Undeniably gorgeous, white diamond engagement rings are by far the most popular choice. But the beauty of bespoke jewellery is you don’t have to be bound by any “Diamond is Forever” supposed tradition. (The ‘belief’ that engagement rings must be diamond and cost at least two-months’ salary is down to brilliant advertising by the diamond company, De Beers!) Rubies, sapphires, emeralds…you can opt for any precious stones you like.Get Inspired
Creating a one-of-a-kind engagement ring may seem a daunting process, but I’m here to help you design the perfect ring for you and your budget. We’ll begin your bespoke journey by meeting (either in person or virtually) to explore the story you want to portray, any inspiration you have and the design elements you wish to incorporate.
Don’t worry if you don’t know where to start — that’s what I’m here for! I’ve been designing bespoke engagement rings for more than a decade, so I know how important it is to create a ring your fiancée will fall in love with and cherish for all time.
With so much importance placed on engagement rings, wedding rings are often seen as just another expense and given little thought. Don’t make the mistake of leaving yours until the last minute! Unique, bespoke wedding rings are the perfect way to symbolise your commitment to each other.
Whether you want classic wedding bands, or something more unusual, together we can design wedding rings you’ll proudly wear for the rest of your lives. Your rings don’t have to be bare metal bands; you can adorn them with diamonds or engravings with special meaning for the two of you. (See here for inspiration!)
Importantly, if you wear a unique engagement ring, your wedding ring will need to be painstakingly designed so both rings can sit seamlessly together. The beauty of custom-made wedding rings is you can create almost anything: a wishbone wedding ring to fit a bespoke engagement ring is just the beginning!
“Roseanna is a fantastic lady to deal with; she helped all the way through the process and answered all the questions I had. She is very knowledgeable in her field, and this shows with the ring she designed for me and my now fiancée. The first drawing she did was the one I fell in love with — how she managed to come up with the design so quickly from my briefing was fantastic to see. I can’t thank her enough. I would give her more than five stars if I could.”
“Amazing designs and a thoroughly personalised and professional service. My fiancée is so happy.”

“Roseanna made all my dreams come true when she designed the most amazing wedding ring for me. She absolutely smashed it…creating the most delicate diamond ring to match my engagement ring! I couldn’t be happier to be wearing such a beautiful ring every day, made with so much love and care. She also made my wedding day gift from my husband: a beautiful bracelet with our initials engraved. This girl has some serious talent!”
“The experience of having our engagement ring and wedding rings custom-designed and hand-made by Roseanna was a real joy. She made everything very easy, brought lots of creative flair and produced some of the most beautiful jewellery either of us has ever owned.
