Custom Engagement Ring vs. Ready to Wear - what's right for me?
but isn't designing a ring really expensive?
The beauty of designing your own ring is that whether you have a large budget or a more modest one, our team have a wealth of experience of working with a vast range of budgets.
At Jessica Flinn Fine Jewellery we work with an array of different gemstones and metals, and our design team are here to advise on what's possible within your budget and help bring the ring of your dreams to life!
ready to wear
Our Ready to Wear collection ranges from around £1200 up to £9000, and we work hard to create stunning rings to suit every budget.
Our design team ensures our collections have a wide variety of gemstones including tourmalines, teal sapphires, salt & pepper diamonds and lab grown grown diamonds in order to create stunning pieces at a multitude of price points. Most of our Ready to Wear pieces are created in Platinum or 18ct recycled gold, however we've recently launched our new 14ct recycled gold collection, making for some really affordable beauties!
Many customers opt for a ring from our Ready to Wear collection, as it means it's on their finger almost immediately! Here are a few rings from our collection spanning a range of budgets:
custom & bespoke engagement rings
When it comes to custom and bespoke engagement rings, the world really is your oyster!
We do advise that you budget for around £1500 as a starting point, however we'll always do our best to work with your budget if it's slightly below this figure. We have also worked with budgets of over £10,000, but there's really no upper limit!
Here are a number of things to consider when starting a custom or bespoke project:
Metal type - we work with Platinum, 9ct, 14ct and 18ct rose, yellow and white gold
Centre stone - think about size, shape and type. Generally price increases for larger stones, and brighter, more vivid colours as well as stones with fewer inclusions hold a higher price
Side stones - we offer both mined and lab grown diamonds in a variety of shapes and sizes
Low or high profile - will the ring be worn daily or for special occasions? The overall height of your ring should suit your lifestyle and how your ring will be worn
These are just a few of the things to consider when designing your dream ring, but it's not scary we promise! We're here to guide you all the way, and there is no such thing as a silly question.
