Before we jump straight into prices we should first define what a “custom” engagement ring actually is. So many jewelers now offer the ability to create custom jewelry but their processes could be worlds apart! From simple modification to complex custom designs; each one comes with their very own price tag.

1st Example

Let’s start with a ring we found on David Douglas Diamonds & Jewelry’s website. Take this Marquise shape halo engagement ring for example – say you LOVE this ring but want to change just a few things about it to make it truly yours.

1. Customize the center stone to be a Forever One Colorless 7x7mm Cushion Cut Moissanite Gemstone.

2. Customize the accent stones to be Moissanite Gemstones.

3. Customize the metal to be 14k Rose Gold.

How much will this ring cost?

You can see our price for this custom engagement ring is now just over $2,400 including the Forever One Colorless Moissanite Gemstone in the center as well as the Moissanite Gemstones on the sides and in the halo.

How long would it take to make this ring?

From the time this ring is ordered to delivery is about 1 – 2 weeks total. Not a bad start – we can have a custom engagement ring for under $2,500 in less time than it takes your college professor to post your final grades.

2nd Example

Let’s say you inherited a pair of diamond studs from your grandmother and you want to use them to create a custom three stone engagement ring. Your partner’s favorite shape of diamond is an elongated Emerald Cut stone but they really want a straight wedding band to fit up flush against the engagement ring instead of a curved wedding band.

We can use this ring from David Douglas Diamonds & Jewelry’s website as our base for these customizations. This should just about fit a straight wedding band perfectly! It features a round stone in the center and 2 – 0.25CT diamonds on the sides.

We can change the center to an elongated emerald cut stone but we CAN NOT change the size of the side diamonds to match the diamond studs you inherited. To change this ring further requires a greater level of customization.

There are some local jewelers, usually independent jewelers, who have access to computer software that allows them to further customize this ring and achieve exactly what we want. We will use this program to further customize our three stone engagement ring.

1. Customize the center stone to be an elongated emerald cut diamond, preferably 1.75CT in size.

2. Customize the side diamonds to match the size of our inherited 0.33CT TW diamond stud earrings.

3. Customize the sides of the ring to allow a straight wedding band to fit flush against it.

4. Add a row of diamonds down the sides.

So what about the cases where the jeweler can’t start with a base ring and make customizations to it? What if you wanted something so unique that it doesn’t exist anywhere else – how much would that custom engagement ring cost?

Let’s take this drawing for example. Let’s say you, or your partner, drew this ring design and it was your “Eldorado”. Your design of all designs and nothing else compared. How much would it cost to have this ring custom made? Let’s find out.

To design this custom engagement ring requires an even greater level of customization than our first two examples.
