Bespoke Custom Engagement Rings Q&A

Bespoke Custom Engagement Rings Q&A

ARE CUSTOM MADE ENGAGEMENT RINGS BETTER?

For the most important piece of jewellery you will ever own, or the most important question you will ever ask, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all of the options out there and wonder how you’re ever going to commit to ‘the one’. Opting for a custom made engagement ring means you can stop settling for the best you can find, favouring the stone settings in one ring but the cut and clarity of another, and create the perfect ring that fits every single bit of criteria that you’ve always imagined, as if it has got up and walked straight off of your Pinterest board. Working directly with a custom engagement ring designer allows you to create a one off piece that you would never find on the high street and won’t see anyone else wearing.  

 


WHERE TO GET A CUSTOM MADE ENGAGEMENT RING MADE?

Laura Vann will personally source your perfect stones in Birmingham’s iconic Jewellery Quarter, head over to Custom Made Engagement Rings in Birmingham blog to find out all the reasons why.  



ARE CUSTOM MADE ENGAGEMENT RINGS MORE EXPENSIVE?

As fair pricing is a key principle upon which V was founded, you can feel confident in the knowledge that we provide clients with much better quality and value for money than the high street can offer without compromising on quality. When purchasing a V by Laura Vann bespoke ring you have come directly to the source of creation, Laura herself, and coming directly to the source enables us to put all the value into your one of a kind piece, with Laura hand picking the stone directly from our suppliers to get you the best possible materials from your budget. 



HOW ARE CUSTOM MADE ENGAGEMENT RINGS DESIGNED?

The process starts with a consultation either via Zoom or at our Sutton Coldfield studio. Laura finds out as much as she can about the taste of the client(s) from their go-to brands to current jewellery staples. The appointment costs £50 and is redeemable against the final cost of the ring. If we’re working on a secret proposal for a bride-to-be Laura will create a mood board of her style, assessing whether she is drawn to feminine, contemporary, bold or delicate designs. From there she will begin sketching up ideas, taking into account the stone types, shapes and details discussed in the consultation and merging this together with our signature timeless V touch. 

 


HOW ARE CUSTOM ENGAGEMENT RINGS MADE?

Once the sketches are signed off by yourself, we take a 50% deposit (credit card accepted) before proceeding to your CAD design. This will show you your ring from all angles and in close detail. Once CADs are confirmed, our workshop in Birmingham’s iconic Jewellery Quarter will begin making your ring with unparalleled precision.

 


HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE TO MAKE A CUSTOM ENGAGEMENT RING?

From initial consultation and discussions with Laura, the sketches are usually back with you in 1-2 weeks, while the full process from consultation to completion usually takes just 6 weeks.
