Custom Engagement and Wedding Ring Design FAQ

Build Your Own Engagement Ring


How long does it take to create a custom engagement ring?

There are two critical elements to the design process for an engagement ring. First, you must design the setting for the ring, which can take as little as a few hours and can last weeks if you would like to explore multiple styles. The second element of the design is the selection of a gemstone. Choosing the type of gems you want to include, i.e. natural or lab-grown diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, or alternative gemstones like moissanite. Your jewelry designer should be able to offer a selection of gems for you to see in person and select the gemstones that you prefer. It may take a week or so to source and receive gemstones for you to see. Once the design is approved, production can take 3-8 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design. The entire process can take 4-12 weeks. See more about the entire process here.

Are custom engagement rings more expensive?

Pricing should be similar for comparable quality, metals, and gemstones between a custom engagement ring and a mass-produced engagement ring. In both a custom engagement ring and a mass-produced ring setting, the primary gemstone is selected separately, so the quality and size of the gemstone is a factor in cost. A custom engagement ring design is intended to produce a one of a kind ring.

What are lab-grown diamonds?

Chemically, physically, and optically the same as those grown beneath the Earth’s surface, a lab-created diamond is “grown” inside a lab using cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process.

Lisa – thank you so much for being a special part of our romance! I LOVE my ring and get compliments on it regularly. It is truly stunning! I love that it is so special and unique not only because of the unique design and the diamonds, but because it was created by you and Scott. I love the champagne center stone and it adds to the vintage feel of the ring while still being relevant with today’s trends. Thank you!

Working with Lisa Robin to create my engagement ring was such an exciting experience. The process of designing the ring was easier than I expected and she was careful to listen to all of my concerns and preferences. The end product looked amazing and exactly how I had hoped the ring would one day look. I’m glad I worked with Lisa as I can say that I helped contribute to an incredible ring made special for my fiancé!
