The Diamond For You
Not all diamonds are created equal. When choosing a diamond for your custom engagement ring, there are many factors at play. Deciding and prioritizing your wishes for your ring is important to establish beforehand, as it will guide the ring design. Cut, color, clarity, and carat are all key components to consider when selecting a diamond. A smaller diamond that’s priced the same as a larger diamond will be higher quality and showcase a brighter rainbow of colors. Larger diamonds are stunning from a distance but more likely to have microscopic flaws that alter their clarity and may have an undesirable color despite being a higher carat weight. Finding the right balance between quality and size will ultimately depend on your budget and your priorities, but keep in mind, there is no wrong diamond!

The Setting Style
Aside from the actual diamond, choosing and designing a setting style is where the real fun begins when creating a custom engagement ring. Bezel style, halo settings, simple solitaire rings, and split shank bands can all take a round brilliant diamond and turn it into a work of art. Your band may be filigree, pave, channel, or flat, among others. The ring and the diamond inform each other; when choosing a diamond, make sure it will work in the style of setting you want, and vice versa. Your local jeweler can help you make an informed decision and walk through possible designs for your custom band before starting design sessions. At Washington Diamond in the D.C. area, we have experienced professionals to help you choose what makes the most sense for you, your style, and your diamond.

The Gemstone Options
Gemstone rings set with precious or semi-precious stones are unique and beautiful. Receiving a sapphire as an engagement ring has become more commonplace in recent years: sapphires are available in blue, pink, yellow, or even white (also known as colorless). Morganite’s peachy pink shade is also growing in popularity as a choice for an engagement ring. If you’re considering a gemstone engagement ring, look for something that you’ll feel comfortable wearing every day for the rest of your life. With a sapphire or other precious gemstone ring, you will stand apart from the crowd and have something that matches your style and personality. Learn more about your options.

Commonly Asked Questions
If you’re looking for custom bridal jewelry in the Washington area, we have the finest selection with a variety of brands and styles. We will craft something that showcases your love perfectly. Here are a few commonly asked question about custom engagement rings:
What are the best metals for custom engagement rings?
The best metals depend on your fiancée’s style. Ask yourself which metal and color would reflect her beauty and elegance the most. Rose gold and yellow gold are great choices if your fiancée loves warmer colors. But if she usually wears many different jewelry pieces, it would be better to choose mixed metals to compliment them all. Otherwise, white gold or platinum are always popular choices.
What kind of gemstones work best for custom engagement rings outside of diamonds?
If your fiancé wants to branch apart from the classic diamond, there are options. A deep sapphire can be a stunning choice, or in contrast, a light blue aquamarine. Paired well with rose gold, morganite is a beautiful blush-toned pink. Gemstone options are endless, so it all depends on you or your fiancé’s style.
Why should I choose a custom engagement ring?
A custom engagement ring offers something extra to your future bride. It expresses the uniqueness of the love that you two share and how it cannot be duplicated by anyone or anything else. You’ll have complete control over the design, metal type, size and gemstones of the ring.
