Want a kick-ass ring, but you're not finding the exact design you've had in mind anywhere? Have you thought about having a custom engagement ring made?

What's that? "Too much of a hassle," you say. "Too expensive," you say.

We say "NAY!" to your nay-saying.

Our sponsor Joseph Jewelry makes it easy to design your own rings.

In fact, not only is it easy, but Joseph Jewelry designers work with your budget to create your custom piece of jewelry.

On top of their custom design skills, Joseph Jewelry also has their own collections of engagement and wedding bands that you can fall in love with as-is, or ask them to customize as much or as little as you want.

Let's look at all the sparkly options Joseph Jewelry can help you create…

Joseph Jewelry has a storefront in the Seattle and Bellevue area. You Seattle locals don't even need an appointment; you can come to their store, try on the sparklies, or sit down with one of their designers to create your own ideas from scratch. Don't despair if you're not in the Washington area, because ANYONE can design their custom ring with Joseph Jewelry online, through their web site.

Could this be the wax model of your engagement ring dreams?

Now let's talk about HOW you can design your own ring with Joseph Jewelry:

  1. Design: Either choose from their selection of examples, or you can upload images or drawings from your computer to their design page.
  2. Free quote: Once your choice of design, gemstones, and metal quality is determined they will be able to provide you with an estimate for the finished product — in most cases working within your budget.
  3. 3D modeling: Joseph Jewelry artists will create 3D computer models of your design. Rendered images can be emailed to you, posted to your online design account, or viewed in person by visiting the store.
  4. Wax mold: They'll then create a full-size wax version of your design.
  5. Production: On approval, they'll begin creating your piece using either hand fabrication or metal casting, set your gemstones, and BOOM! You've got your one-of-a-kind piece of heirloom-quality jewelry.

Men's wedding bands
It's not all futuristic custom jewelry technology: Joseph Jewelry has a wow-inducing collection of finger-ready women's and men's wedding bands. Try them on in the store, or try them out with your eyeballs online.

No matter which route you chose with your wedding ring — custom or ready-to-wear — you can sleep tight knowing that Joseph Jewelry takes its responsibility to carry only ethically sourced materials seriously — ensuring every ounce of precious metals they use are from non-mined sources, or taken from recycled jewelry.

What say ye now, nay-sayers? Clearly, there's nothing left between you and the wedding jewelry of your dreams, but to get thee to Joseph Jewelry!

  1. This came at the *PERFECT* time! My fiance and I are having the hardest time working with a jeweler to get the rings we want, and we hadn't seen them yet! I trust them a lot to begin with since OBB is posting this, and I can't wait to hear back from them!

  2. Ooh, I'm saving this for later. I'm not quite at ring stage yet, but getting close and these are crazy beautiful!

  3. Saving this for a significant anniversary down the line – when I'm ready to upgrade from my mismatched set.

  4. Oh my! I want to design this stuff! I'd totally make some fandom inspired ones… especially Disney. ^_^ The last picture is my favorite. Beautiful.

  5. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Custom mokume gane. Where were you 3 months ago when I was searching the land and skies and seas for affordable mokume gane?? All I managed to find was a quote that was more than my entire budget.

    Bookmarking for our 10-year anniversary upgrade…. Please still exist.

  6. YAY for Joseph Jewelry!! I designed a custom ring with them (using a photo of a ring as a base) and it has just arrived at my mother's house – I will see it in a few days and I am so excited. The photos of it are perfect. I was so happy with the process with these folks – they were always really quick and pleasantly friendly, even though we only ever spoke by messages on their design system. They changed my design multiple times to suit exactly what I wanted and posted new 3D drawings each time. I did not get a wax model, maybe that's just for local clients. Anyway, I recommend them highly!

  7. My fiance and I custom designed my engagement ring, and I am totally in love with it. It's also a great way to incorporate an heirloom into your own style. For those in Washington & those with no good jeweler nearby I can see that this place looks great, such pretty rings! I just wanted to chime in and highly recommend getting a custom engagement ring, no matter where!

  8. Elena, if you don't mind my asking…. I'm in the process of designing my wedding ring. Joseph Jeweler popped up here on OBB, and I read positive reviews on the PriceScope forums on the same day. It seemed kismet-y 🙂 I LOVE that they have an online process (I have anxiety issues talking to strangers on the phone). I uploaded my photographs and went through their online process filling in as much as I could and I submitted the design. There was no feedback saying "HOORAY! You successfully submitted your design!" So, long story long (apologies!), how many days did it take for them initially to reply to you?
