DESIGN YOUR OWN BESPOKE ENGAGEMENT RING
Bespoke jewellery design is who we are and it’s what we do.
Designing your own engagement ring is an exciting and memorable process. It’s a way for you and your loved one to share something totally unique and one-of-a-kind, a true symbol of your love. Our design process brings you directly in contact with our award-winning designer and master jeweller Steve Pallas, he’ll guide you through every step of your custom engagement ring design process.
FIRST, YOUR VISION
You can start by selecting an existing style from our showroom or by submitting something totally unique and custom. We recommend bringing in any engagement ring images, sketches or inspiration to help us understand your vision. From here, Steve will assist you with any questions you may have during the custom engagement ring design process. He’ll help you along the way, making sure your bespoke engagement ring turns out exactly as you envisioned. Through the help of personalised sketches and a custom 3D CAD, we’ll ensure that your piece meets your every expectation.
During your consultation Steve will draw a rough sketch based on your ideas and give you a price guide accordingly.
You can also easily get started designing your own engagement ring by using the Ask Question button on any of our pages. This will send a direct message to us and we can answer any of your inquiries. You can send us a rough idea of the shape, carat weight and budget that you have in mind.
NEXT, WE SOURCE
We source the finest GIA Certified Diamonds and while the 4Cs and certificates are an important consideration, every diamond that goes through Steve Pallas Bespoke Jewellery is personally inspected by Steve to ensure the certificate correlates to the diamond, has the correct diameter to weight, compares good or bad clarity grades, ensures bright and lively cuts, has the perfect depth percentage, and the best weight to value. Sometimes fluorescence has an adverse effect, other times it helps.
We know everything there is to know about finding the best diamonds and it’s in our best interest to ensure you are completely satisfied with yours. Steve is an expert at finding the best quality and the right value in diamonds whilst maintaining the highest and strictest standards. He’ll work directly with you, focusing on the quality you want and the budget you set.
All our stones are ethically sourced and are guaranteed by all our reputable suppliers.
Once your order is placed and we know your vision, we will create a 3D CAD Image (Computer-Aided Design). A CAD is used to create, modify, and optimise your bespoke engagement ring design. This cutting-edge technology gives you a clear vision with exact dimensions of your engagement ring ensuring a precise manufacturing process whilst giving you the option to alter your piece until you are satisfied.
THEN, WE REVIEW
Envisioning your jewellery is sometimes not enough, so we create a 3D wax model of your design to allow you to see, touch and try on. This process isn’t always necessary but is an option if you are still unsure of the finished product.
FINALLY, WE BRING IT TO LIFE
After your approval, our expert jewellers start handcrafting your design. First, we cast or handmake your bespoke engagement ring in the precious metal of your choice. We then hand set all diamonds and gemstones on premises by our in-house expert gem setter. And finally, we emery, hand-polish and clean to give your bespoke engagement ring its final finish.
DIRECT UPDATES FROM YOUR JEWELLER
Once we start handcrafting your ring, you have the option to receive direct messages of every step of your bespoke engagement ring process. With this feature, our master jewellers capture the progress of your ring throughout the manufacturing process and will send it straight to you. You’ll watch the journey as our craftsmen bring your beautiful custom engagement ring to life.
