We're laying it all out today: one-of-a-kind custom rings from our longtime partner, Joseph Jewelry. We've seen their stellar work for years now, but this time, we're taking it to a whole nutha level. All of these rings we're scoping out today used their custom design process, both in person and online, and each took their ring dreams into a new realm of awesome.
We've actually been through the process of customizing a ring with Joseph Jewelry and it.is.amazing. The artisans and designers are SKILLED and so ready to make your idea come to life. Here's how they do it.
But I digress…
We're here today to talk about rings you'll NEVER see at the mall or your chain jewelry store. These are the most non-basic engagement rings y'all will ever see. From custom-cut gemstones to diamonds surrounded by black ceramic (WUT) to sandblasted gold, these are some of the most unique, most intriguing, and most gorgeous rings we've ever seen. Bonus: many of them utilize lab-grown diamonds and gemstones.

A different gemstone, a different metal, extra stones, a whole new setting based on another ring you saw elsewhere… make it yours, baby. Now, let's get to the bling already!

This ring was a labor or love to include the tiny details their client wanted to include. And the result shows all the love that went into it. Don't miss the tiny pop of green!

You've got to look at this one from all angles. It makes a STATEMENT. It was created for a client alongside a matching pair of diamond earrings. Yep, you can do that, too. It's not just rings!
OMG an orange sapphire? It's stoking flames in my heart.
