So, What Exactly is a Bespoke Ring?

Unlike mass-produced jewellery, a bespoke ring is a one-of-a-kind creation designed and crafted to reflect the individuality of the wearer and the bond they share with their partner. It is an extraordinary piece that tells a tale of romance, devotion, and personal expression – a symbol of love that is as exceptional as the relationship it represents.

Why Should You Invest In A Bespoke Engagement Ring?

When it comes to significant investments in life, few can match the emotional and financial importance of an engagement ring. This is not a mere piece of jewellery. It’s a symbol of commitment, a token of love and a priceless memory. And what could be more personal and meaningful than a bespoke engagement ring?

What is a Bespoke Ring Likely to Cost?

As thrilling as the journey of crafting a bespoke ring can be, one must consider the financial aspect involved. The cost of a bespoke ring depends largely on three key factors: the choice of precious metals, the stones selected, and the level of customisation, like engravings, shapes, and additional design features. At Alicia J Diamonds, our bespoke designs start at £5000.

Precious Metals

The selection of precious metals significantly influences the cost of your bespoke design. Whether you choose the timeless allure of gold, the elegance of platinum, or the contemporary charm of silver, each choice comes with a different price bracket.


The quality of stones used are another major factor contributing to the final overall cost. Diamonds, rubies, emeralds, or sapphires; the choice is yours. However, the cost can vary greatly depending on the stone’s type, size, and quality.

Engravings, Shapes and Other Customisations

The beauty of a bespoke ring lies in its personalisation. Custom features like engravings, unique shapes, or additional design elements can add further cost and elevate your ring to a whole new level of exclusivity. These additional touches summarise your story and transform the ring into an intimate memento.

Tips For Creating Your Bespoke Engagement Ring

Crafting a bespoke engagement ring is an exciting adventure that intertwines your personal love story with a timeless piece of luxury. To aid you on this journey, we’ve compiled a few vital tips that can help make your own engagement ring a dream come true.

Visualise Your Design

Start by envisioning the final product. Consider what type of ring you want, the style, and the aesthetic. Draw inspiration from various sources – pre-made ring designs you’ve admired, elements from nature, or even aspects of your partner’s personality. Perhaps they’re outgoing and love a bold look, or maybe they’re more of a minimalist? Keep in mind perfect engagement ring will reflect your story, so don’t shy away from incorporating personal elements.

Choose the Right Metal

The metal you choose for your bespoke ring determines its look and feel. From the timeless appeal of yellow gold to an elegant platinum, each metal brings a unique charm to your custom-made ring. Choose a metal that resonates with your style and is in harmony with the design you have in mind.

Select the Perfect Stone

The centrepiece of your bespoke ring is the gemstone. Diamonds, with their brilliance and timeless appeal, are a popular choice. However, consider other precious stones like sapphires, rubies, or emeralds. The choice of stone influences not only the ring’s aesthetic but also its price.

Work with the Right Jeweller

The jeweller you choose to create your bespoke ring makes all the difference. It’s crucial to work with someone who is skilled in their craft and understands and respects your vision. At Alicia J Diamonds, our experts combine their superior craftsmanship with a genuine commitment to bringing your vision to life.

Be Patient
