Choosing a jeweller to design your own wedding ring can be an exciting, if overwhelming, process. With so many choices out there, how do you find the one that’s right for you? How can you be sure they will listen to what you want? Here at Roseanna Croft Jewellery, we’ve come up with a few tips to help you along the way. If you want a bespoke piece designed just for you, it’s important to choose a jeweller that has extensive experience in designing custom wedding bands. But what else should you look out for?
Before choosing your wedding ring designer, it’s important to look into their background and research their reputation. What are their credentials? How long have they been in the industry? Don’t be afraid to ask for references from previous clients or request photos of their past work. Any reputable jeweller should be more than happy to show you custom pieces they’ve designed in the past to give you an idea of their range of styles and designs. After something a little bit different or need your wedding ring to fit around an engagement ring? Find a jeweller who uses 3D design so you can see exactly what your ring will look like. A good jeweller should also be able to provide proof that their gemstones are genuine as well as ethically sourced.
When going through the wedding ring design process, you should take the time to get to know any potential jeweller on a personal level. After all, this person will be designing the ring you will be wearing every day for the rest of your life. A good relationship with your jeweller will help ensure you have fond memories of the design process and the person who created it for you.
Not all wedding rings are created equal. Depending on which jeweller you choose, where they are based, and how busy they are, there can be a wide disparity in terms of how much it will cost and how long it will take. When choosing your jeweller, you need to consider your own personal timescale and budget and make sure they are willing to stick to it. An upfront conversation can save you a lot of hassle and help avoid delays. If you’re being pressured to agree to a quick sale or pushed towards choosing something outside your budget, it’s time to look elsewhere.
Buying your bespoke wedding rings doesn’t have to be a stressful process. With the right jeweller behind you, it can be a lovely experience for you and your partner.
