If there’s one thing we know about readers of Offbeat Bride, it’s that they tend to make things their own. Either they’re scaling down and making things simple and sweet or they’re taking it all up a notch and going wild. Free spirited couples like that will probably want their major symbolic wedding moments to really resonate. And your engagement rings are no exception.
The old days of having to go to an old-fashioned jewelry store and deal with ten options that all look the same? Gone, baby. Now you can take a favorite ring style and add elements that make it totally you OR start from scratch and imagine a ring you’ve never even seen before.
The talented artisans at our partner, Joseph Jewelry, are masters at taking your ring ideas and turning them into reality. They have a huge cache of custom rings they’ve created to get your ideas stirring, but don’t let that limit you. We’re going to show you a few of our favorite unique engagement rings that you can customize for your engagement. Different gemstones, different metals, engravings, nerdy details, personal symbolism, astrological signs, animal shapes, more?! You dream it, they’ll create it.
How does the custom process work?
They work with your budget
Joseph Jewelry works with your specific budget so you can have a truly unique, meaningful piece that can’t be found anywhere else. And you won’t be stuck picking from overpriced, factory-created rings over which you have no control. If you love the style of a big diamond ring but it’s not within your budget or style, you can swap that diamond for a different gemstone to make it fit your budget. They’ll direct you in finding materials that will make your dream ring come to life without breaking your bank.
You’ll have unlimited changes to make it PERFECT
You can make unlimited changes to the CAD models until you are 100% stoked about your design, and they’ll print a wax model for you to see the dimensions in real life. Try it on, see how it feels on your hand, and feel WAY more confident about your decision.
Provide as much inspiration as you like
If you’ve seen rings you like which have elements you’d like to combine — they’ll run with it. Maybe you’ve seen visual elements from TV, books, or movies (Game of Thrones, maybe?!) that inspire you — they’ll make it happen. You can draw your ideas, make a collage of photos, or just describe your ideas to let them know what you’ve been dreaming up. The custom process can be as collaborative or as hands-off as you like.
Joseph Jewelry works with gemstones, diamonds, lab created diamonds, laser engraving, hand engraving, different metals, and so much more to make literally anything you can imagine come to life. We’ve seen it done and it’s astounding!
Imagine seeing an old photo of an ancestor’s ring and having it re-created for a proposal. Swoon. There are no limits in what they can create so now’s the time to get scheming.
