What Is a Bespoke Ring?

If you've just started your search for the perfect ring but haven't quite found one that resonates deeply with you, it might be worth considering a bespoke option. With their growing popularity, bespoke rings offer the freedom and personalisation you’re searching for, making them an increasingly popular choice for those in search of the ideal engagement or wedding ring.

What Does Bespoke Mean?

In the world of jewellery, bespoke means you have the creative freedom to design your own piece of jewellery from start to finish. For example, when crafting a bespoke engagement ring, you have the freedom to select every detail, from the type of metal and the centrepiece stone to its setting style and the addition of side stones or any unique design elements. As long as your design is structurally sound, the possibilities are endless!

What is the Difference Between Bespoke and Custom?

The difference between our bespoke and custom services is that with the bespoke package you’re able to work with one of our designers from start to finish, designing a ring from scratch. With the custom package, there is slightly less freedom as you will be choosing from one of our existing designs and changing certain elements to suit your style better. For example, if you’ve fallen in love with our Winter design but would like to swap out her centre stone for a round cut lab grown diamond, this would fall within our custom design service, but if you have a completely original idea for a ring, this will be a bespoke design. If you’re not sure which package suits you better, reach out to us and we will help you decide.

How Long Does it Take to Make a Bespoke Ring?

When you start thinking about whether you want to create a bespoke ring or not it's very important to familiarise yourself with the timeframes that are put in place for crafting. You will also have to allocate some time to designing the ring, chatting with your jeweller and working together to design your dream ring. Every jeweller will have different timeframes in place as they will operate on different levels and with different manufacturers. 

At Jessica Flinn, we understand that finding the perfect elements to a ring can take a while. With stone sourcing and exploring design options, this process can take a few weeks. Once a design has been finalised, we allow for 6-8 weeks for the ring to be created, so it's important that you give yourself plenty of time before the big day.

The Bespoke Process

The journey of crafting a bespoke ring typically begins with a burst of inspiration from the customer. Whether sparked by an heirloom piece or the desires of a partner, it all starts with an idea. After reaching out to our team via email, phone, or WhatsApp, we embark on the exciting process of putting all your ideas together to create a truly one of a kind piece.

While you're welcome to schedule virtual or in-person appointments for in-depth chats, we mostly keep the creativity flowing through email exchanges. We'll send you visuals of your dream ring, making it easy-peasy to tweak until it's just right!

Once we've locked in your design, our CAD designer will create a 3D rendering of your ring. After you've given the nod to its beauty and we’ve ensured its sturdiness, it's off to the production stage! We’ll keep you updated as your ring is in production and when it's ready to be shipped or collected from our Sheffield showroom.

How Much Does a Bespoke Engagement Ring Cost?

The cost of a bespoke ring varies widely based on the materials and design preferences. Since gemstones and metals come with different price tags, there's no fixed rate for our bespoke creations. However, we do have a set fee of £290 for our bespoke package. This covers the additional time and effort involved in sourcing the ideal gemstone, creating visual representations and CAD designs, maintaining communication, and bringing your dream ring to life! So it's basically a steal!
