Choosing to get engaged is truly instinctive: when you know, you just know. However, choosing what sort of engagement ring to propose with is another story. All of a sudden, you must be proficient about fine jewellery to ensure that you’re getting a great deal, as well as getting something durable and high quality enough to endure the test of time.

So rather than attempting to search the whole web and collect all the knowledge of the considerable number of men in your circle who have already undergone the same process—why not just hire a specialist? A bespoke jewellery designer who can work with you to create a bespoke engagement ring that is made precisely to your partner’s style and preference.

Just think about this: you’ll most likely hire an expert for all other significant expenses throughout your life. After all, you wouldn’t do a major car repair without a skilled mechanic, or rebuild your home without getting a professional contractor, nor would you try to self-diagnose using only WebMD, right? So why would you make one of the most important investments of your life without a specialist close by?

Here are some of the reasons why you should definitely consider going for bespoke jewellery:

gem stones

One Of the Best Perks
When designing an engagement ring with a bespoke jewellery designer, you know precisely where your stones are originated from and what they are. This guarantees that you’re getting a genuine gemstone rather than quartz, an imitation, or even glass. On a more profound level, some couples would also want to ensure that the gemstones are lab-grown (rather than mined) for ethical reasons. At our studio, we not just utilize stones from trustworthy sources, but we also show you various gemstones that you get the chance to see and touch face-to-face.

You Will Get Exactly What You Want
Let be honest. It’s pretty uncommon that you find a pre-made engagement ring that checks each and every box on her list. In case you’re wise enough to check her Pinterest board, you’ll likely find that most of the ring designs she pinned have very little in common. This basically means that she loves a specific part of each ring; she prefers the shape of the stone on some of the ring designs, she may like the metal colour on the others, and the ring setting on the rest. A lot of men come to us with this exact dilemma: they have a rundown of what ring design their partner may like, yet they can’t find everything in one ring. When you work with a bespoke jewellery designer, you can combine every last bit of her favourite elements into one impeccable engagement ring.

Also, with regards to jewellery, most ladies have specific preferences. More often than not, women are either crazy for yellow gold or white gold—but rarely both. Aside from that, you also have the exceptions who adore the beauty of rose gold. Ladies also have solid views on diamonds in their engagement rings: it’s either they’ll take nothing less, or they don’t want anything to do with them. One of the best advantages of creating your own engagement ring is that you get the chance to choose whatever design you want without having to sacrifice one element.

For instance, your partner certainly loves a non-diamond ring. Then you found a ring that completes every single detail on her list, but they happen to have a couple of diamonds in the band. Now that’s just tragic. When hiring a bespoke jeweller, they have the skill set to work around all her preferences. If your partner has sensitive skin, a bespoke jeweller can set the gemstones in hypoallergenic palladium or platinum. On the off chance that she likes a particular size and shape of a diamond, we have the assets to get that going as well.

Once in a while, men come to our studio with practically no idea of what ring design their partners would like to have. On the other hand, some would think that they already know what their partner wants or what her style preference is, yet it becomes noticeably evident that they’re off track! When working with a custom jeweller like DG Bespoke, we know how to work things out and locate the compatible elements in the majority of the ring designs she pinned to her Pinterest. We’re specialists at making sense of her style and finding her vibe after seeing a couple of photos of her, her choice of clothes, and the kind of jewellery she likes to wear.

We live in the world of engagement rings and wedding bands all day, every day, so we’re aware of what works, what’s timeless, and what’s trending.

Another thing that worth mentioning: we’ve all made online buys that don’t match our expectations despite all the good reviews associated with it. While this isn’t the end of the world for a cheap spur-of-the-moment purchase, it’s not a wise thing to do for the most significant piece of jewellery you’ll ever buy. Engagement rings are supposed to be worn every day so it needs to last a lifetime. Furthermore, once you purchase a ring, on the off chance that it breaks or gets seriously damaged, you’ll rarely be able to return it and ask for a replacement. Gemstones become loose and metal bands can get bent.

However, for high-quality engagement rings, this is highly uncommon especially when you have a bespoke ring since you hired an expert who made it elegant yet durable and long-lasting. From the stone setting to metal choices, we create your ring in a certain way so it can undoubtedly endure long-term wear. We also ensure that our jewellery works will last for a lifetime.

Bespoke Jewellery Designers Can Transform Heirloom Stones
No need to worry in case you (or your partner) already have your own gemstones as we can work with that, as well. This is called repurposed jewellery, and it’s something that we have some expertise in at DG Bespoke Jewellery. Sometimes people come to us with a gemstone they obtained themselves, or with a jewellery that they inherited from their family.

Some men are given an antique bracelet, necklace, pendant, or a pair of earrings that contain precious diamond stones (or other gemstones) they want to use for an engagement ring. Regardless, your only option is to create a bespoke jewellery from scratch and work around the stone you already have. This is an incredible alternative in the event that you’ve acquired a relative’s antique jewellery or wedding band, but you want to update it into a modern design.

Getting a bespoke jewellery is still not that common even in our modern society since people associate it with “expensive jewellery”. However, since you have full control over the design, you’re practically deciding its price as well. Opt for a simple yet elegant ring design with fewer details and lesser diamond carat (if your partner likes diamonds) if you want it to be inexpensive.


Usually, a lot of couples come to us for bespoke rings since they are in search for something unique. An engagement ring or wedding band that nobody else will have, an absolute one-of-a-kind ring, something that combines their individual styles. No matter what you’re looking for—bespoke jewellery designs is the best way to go!
