Are you ready to ask the love of your life for their hand in marriage? Are you holding off until you can purchase the perfect engagement ring? Are you interested in designing a custom engagement ring?
When the time comes to start your search, you’ll soon realize there’s no shortage of options. And that’s especially true if you’re open to a custom ring.
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of how much a custom engagement ring costs. There’s no set price, and in many ways, it comes down to one detail: your budget.
For example, if you’re on a tight budget, you can keep it simple with a smaller — yet stunning — centre stone and no extra diamonds.
However, if you have the available budget, you can build a more extravagant engagement ring.
That’s the beauty of a custom engagement ring. You’re paying a price you can afford for a ring that’s sure to knock your partner off their feet.
Is it Expensive to Have an Engagement Ring Custom Made?
The word “expensive” means something different to everyone, so it’s important to define your budget before shopping for an engagement ring (custom or not).
Where you’re purchasing the ring has a lot to do with the cost, but in some instances, you may find that a custom ring is more affordable than one that you choose off the shelf. Imagine that!
With Kimberfire, our clients get all the benefits of a one-off custom engagement ring designed just for them. Along with this, it’s our mission to provide the same quality and service as top brands in the industry, all at a fraction of the price.
What Are the Benefits of a Custom Engagement Ring?
The primary benefit of a custom engagement ring is obvious. You get exactly what you want in regards to design without having to make any compromises.
This is in addition to other benefits, including but not limited to:
- Allocate budget toward what’s most important to you: Maybe you’re okay with forgoing side diamonds so you can put more budget toward a higher quality centre stone. Or perhaps you’re interested in a platinum ring, as opposed to gold. With a custom engagement ring, you can put every dollar where you want it. You don’t have to make concessions.
- Fun and memorable experience: Anyone can walk into a jewelry store, choose something off the shelf, and make a purchase. And it’s even easier if you buy a “stock” ring online. But with a custom engagement ring, you bring excitement to the process. Not to mention the fact that it’s an experience you’ll remember forever.
- The ability to match exact centre diamond measurements: You want a ring that fits your specific centre diamond measurements. “Close enough” isn’t good enough when it comes to an engagement ring. This is especially important for certain engagement ring styles, such as halo, with most people interested in a perfect fitting stone with no gaps.
Let’s put it this way: If you can dream it up, you can design it. There’s no limit as to what you can do with a custom engagement ring.
Don’t let any myths or misconceptions hold you back from designing a custom engagement ring. Now that you better understand price and benefits, you can decide if it’s time to go down this path.
And if it is, you’re in the right place. At Kimberfire, we manufacture custom engagement rings to ensure that you get what you want at a price you can afford. From the initial consultation to final delivery, we’re here to show you the way.
