Couples who see our work really love it but worry that the cost of a custom made engagement ring will be too much for their budget. In fact, for most rings, this simply is not true. You get a far better result, both in terms of cost and quality, if you have us custom make your engagement ring.
Of course, what I am talking about here are not the lowest possible cost rings that you can find. The market place is flooded with mass produced, low quality diamond rings. They are a dime a dozen in high street chain stores and cheap online stores. These rings are made to meet a price point. In order to achieve that price point, corners have to be cut. How? They use low quality diamonds, poor quality metal alloys and cheap overseas labour.
The rings on offer in such places are hollowed out wherever possible to reduce the weight of the ring. This reduces the gold cost of each ring. Doing this doesn’t make much of a difference in the cost of each individual ring, but when they are being mass produced, it makes a big difference indeed.
All this does impact on the ring. Low price point, sure. But if you want the ring to look really, really good and last a lifetime and beyond, you are wasting your money buying this type of ring. It might seem cheap at the time, but you are buying a lifetime of trouble. Put simply: if you want a great result when it comes to precious gemstones such as diamonds and precious metals such as gold and platinum, there is a cost that you have to pay to achieve that. You do not get a great result when corners are cut.
