Designer Engagement Rings As Unique As Your Love
It has been a perfect evening. You are seated in a cozy corner of your favorite restaurant. Your dinner companion is a very close friend who you met about eight months ago. Everything about the relationship has gone extremely well and a surprise phone call earlier today asking for a special rendezvous has you in the midst of this magical moment. The music is playing softly and sweetly. You suddenly realize that the band is playing your favorite song.
Looking up at your dinner companion you notice that he is holding a jewelry box. Your heart begins to race as he cracks open the box and reveals a ring. Being old fashioned, he pushes himself away from the table, walks over to you and drops to one knee. Slipping the ring over your finger he proposes marriage. You immediately say yes and embrace your fiancé. While hugging him you extend your arm and admire your engagement ring. It is that very ring that you and he talked about months earlier and, as you discussed, like your love, your ring is that exclusive designer engagement ring.
Designer Engagement Rings
Designer engagement rings are those symbols of commitment that reflect the careful craftsmanship dedicated towards the design and quality of your engagement ring. Designer engagement rings are not mass produced and, as such, are not available in a number of retail stores.
The uniqueness of designer engagement rings is reflected in the customization of a particular component of the ring. That component could be the band or the setting that houses the diamond. This particular design or flair to the ring is what distinguishes the ring from other creations and qualifies it to be a designer engagement ring.
These creations are not necessarily more expensive than an engagement ring that is selected from a jewelry store in your local mall. However, due to that particular special touch, the designer engagement ring is exclusive to you and reflective of your special relationship.
Locating A Jeweler
Finding an artisan to create your designer engagement ring may prove to be a daunting task. However, it is important to remain focused on your intent of having a symbol of your commitment and love expressed as unique as what you both share.
The most recommended method of locating a jewelry designer is to find someone who practices their trade locally. This strategy will allow you and your fiancé to consult with them on a one to one basis and work together in designing that ring. Also, it is important to have the opportunity to personally see for yourself the quality of their creations.
When selecting a jeweler it is best to conduct research. Contacting your Better Business Bureau to ask about the jeweler’s business practices or to find out if any complaints have been registered against the jeweler are good starting point questions. Also, contact any jeweler associations in your area to see if the jewelers you are considering are in good standing within these associations.
The cost of a designer engagement ring may be more expensive than a ring that you can simply choose from a jeweler’s display case. However, you should remain focused when planning and purchasing a designer engagement ring. The price tag may increase due to the added attention, but remember the other factors that determine the value of a diamond engagement ring.
Those factors include the setting, the metal chosen to construct the ring, the four C’s of a diamond (clarity, cut, carat and color) and the detail devoted in constructing the ring.
