Perhaps it was only yesterday that your love said those four simple words - 'Will you marry me?' If he hasn't taken a stab at your taste in rings then you'll be setting off to buy the jewellery piece of a life time. We spoke with Larsen Jewellery to find out a little more on custom made engagement rings...
Taking the step into the world of diamonds and engagement rings can be, to say the least, an overwhelming and daunting experience. With the plentiful options at ones finger tips it is certainly understandable if you feel somewhat confused at where you should start.
Beautiful ready-to-wear engagement rings are a fabulous choice - so why would you choose to have an engagement ring custom made when you can easily stroll into your local fine jewellery shop, browse the store for that perfect sparkling diamond ring that will win your heart and have it packaged up beautifully so your ready to go? There is certainly nothing wrong with this, but just keep in mind that this is perhaps the single most significant and sentimental purchase you will make.
The idea of choosing a vintage engagement ring is beautiful. To own a piece that holds its own history is a lovely nostalgic notion. But it is important to realise that vintage rings come with the risk that you may eventually encounter future problems. Vintage rings can be dangerously thin and may lead to unforeseen problems down the track. You may find it difficult to find a jeweller who will be willing to take on the repair work that may be involved.
