When you know she's the one and it's time to start shopping for the perfect ring, you might want to consider creating a custom engagement ring. This method is often overlooked because it's seen as a crazy expensive choice that is also time-consuming.

But, creating a custom engagement ring isn't as expensive as you might think. It'll also allow you to be creative and give her a truly one-of-a-kind ring that no one else would have. And, you'll be able to create the ring that she's always dreamed about!

Let's take a look at the top five reasons that we've come up with to consider creating a custom engagement ring:

Reason #1: It doesn't actually cost much more

One of the most common misconceptions when it comes to creating custom engagement rings is that it will cost significantly more than buying a store model. This isn't always the case. Sometimes, it's just a matter of a small fraction more to cover labor costs that will be added on to the final bill.

In the scheme of things, paying a small fee for a custom work of art will be worth the value that you get over a lifetime. When you go into a store and see a generic engagement ring that has been mass-produced thousands of times, you will pay the same price. If you were to customize that ring, it'll cost you a bit more, but the price will generally still be less than a national brand name ring.

Reason #2: You can have some fun with it

One of the best parts about creating a custom engagement ring is the actual process. And with custom designs, the possibilities are endless! Here are some ideas to get you started if you are considering this route.

Engagement ring shopping can already be a fun, exciting process. But, going through the custom creation process will be even more fun. You'll be able to dream up something that doesn't already exist and work with a designer to bring that creation to life. It will be a much different process than choosing a design that is already available. Have some fun finding the perfect ring for her!

Reason #3: You'll be giving her something unique & one-of-a-kind

One of the best parts of creating your very own engagement ring is that you will be giving her something unique and truly one-of-a-kind. Every ring has a story, and she'll be able to tell everyone that her ring is a custom creation.

There's something really special knowing that she is the only one that will have your signature creation on her finger for years to come. Every detail was designed with her taste in mind, making it a work of art that is perfect for her. Every day she'll be reminded of the love and careful attention you took to create her beautiful ring.

Reason #4: You'll be involved with every step of the process

Buying an engagement ring is always a special process, but being able to have a heavy hand in every step of the process makes creating a custom ring a great choice. From the beginning, you are working with a designer to think of an idea, create a sketch, and watch it come to life.

Once the designer has created the rough sketch that you both mutually agree upon, he then uses CAD software so that the ring appears as a 3 dimensional digital image. This image can be rotated and viewed in multiple angles so that you can really get a good sense of what it will look like. After that, you'll work through the final steps of the creation process with the designer your initial idea to life.

Custom creating a ring is a hands-on process that'll get you even more excited for the proposal.

Reason #5: You'll be able to get exactly what she wants

Sometimes she really does know best. Maybe she has an exact idea of what she wants in her ring, and you're having trouble finding all of those elements in one ring. Some women know exactly what they want, and they will share it with you.

Instead of looking high and low for the exact ring she wants, consider creating a custom engagement ring. That way, you'll know that she's getting her dream ring. And you can add your own personal spin on it that she might not be expecting!
