Ring Stories

If your partner was made for you, shouldn’t your engagement ring be too? It’s hard to know where to start when you know your imagination is the only limit so take a look at our past one of a kind wonders for inspo, words of wisdom or just for the final push to commit to creating your very own bespoke beauty.


Whether you are UK based or an international client, we are able to work with you online or face to face to ensure the process is smooth and enjoyable from start to finish. Laura Vann will ensure that you are involved in each aspect of the custom made engagement ring designing journey while drawing on her own experience as a personal stylist and experienced designer to provide you with a unique vintage inspired piece that encapsulates your style.



“I visited a few high street jewellers feeling deflated by what my money was able to afford before a friend recommended the V Bespoke Service. Laura gave such thoughtful guidance like suggesting we used two tone metals which is typical of traditional Turkish jewellery and so a nod to my partner’s heritage. We were delighted with the engagement ring and Laura created custom wedding bands shortly after! I envisage these rings being in our family for generations.”



“After wanting something special, unique, and fitting of my girlfriend’s taste, I saw that V offered a Bespoke Engagement Ring Service. Knowing how much my better half loved the brand I thought it would be fitting to get something one of a kind made that she deserved.

Laura put me at ease from the beginning. I can safely say I knew absolutely nothing at all about diamonds, but Laura was highly patient with me and took the time to explain all parts. After giving her an idea of what I wanted, Laura created some amazing designs, and we spent the next few weeks sculpting the final ring. It’s by far the best ring I’ve ever seen and every response to it has been unbelievable. My now fiancé́ is besotted with it.”



“My bespoke journey with V was a pleasure. This truly was a personalised experience; Laura carried out a style assessment with detailed mood boards before moving on to the actual ring design. Laura recommended that I go for an emerald centre stone which she chose personally.

Not only was this experience enjoyable but it was also hugely touching! The outcome was nothing short of impeccable with faultless craftsmanship. Stress-free, enjoyable and uniqueI cannot recommend the V Bespoke Service enough!”



“My girlfriend Sophie has been a fan of V for years so when I was ready to propose I knew I wanted to work with Laura to create something bespoke. I visited V’s studio for my consultation and Laura guided me through the whole process.

We looked at pictures of Sophie and her jewellery collection to assess the shape and style of designs she is drawn to. Once I had approved Laura’s initial sketches she sent me CAD designs so I knew how the ring looked from every angle. I’m happy to say we hit the nail on the head. She loved the ring and I couldn’t be happier!”



“It was brilliant working with Laura to design a special bespoke piece. She showed great patience while I decided what to go for, all the while maintaining a progressive attitude towards the common goal. The resulta spectacular ring and a very happy wife-to-be! I plan to revisit V when we come to create our wedding bandsthank you Laura!”



Back in 2017, we met Robbie and Laura while attending an event in Edinburgh and instantly hit it off! Later that evening, after leaving the event they got engaged and wanted us to be a part in designing their wedding bands. Fast forward to August 2019 and we’re happy to present the bespoke wedding bands that were made for Robbie and Laura for their special day.



“Creating my own ring really shone a light on the pressure some of my clients must feel when embarking on a bespoke creation. I didn’t know where to start and I could feel myself getting stressed trying to create the “perfect” ring.

So I stepped back and took my own advice by analysing my personal style to ensure my ring factored in elements I have always loved like emeralds and baguette cut stones.

From there I just decided to look at my ring as a symbol of what I loved at that moment in time. Now I always advise people to think in the same way so that they have fun on their bespoke journey in full confidence that they’ll love the ring they create for a lifetime.”


Before your consultation, we will ask you to think about budget, materials (yellow gold/white gold/platinum), ring sizes if applicable and your timescale. Following a successful consultation where a detailed brief will have been established, Laura will draw up initial sketches of your bespoke piece. After a deposit payment we provide CADs and wax models where required and production takes roughly 6 weeks.

You’re just a few steps away from embarking on your bespoke design journey.
