It is not an easy task for a guy to build an engagement ring from scratch; however, most men take the rough with the smooth. So here is a lowdown to help you build an engagement ring for your fair lady.

Find the Exact Ring Size to Build an Engagement Ring

Half the battle to build an engagement ring is to get one that fits her perfectly. Either you can ask her what her ring size is in a simple, straightforward manner. However, if you want to surprise her then you have to use some devious means. Perhaps you can secretly borrow one of her rings and hope she doesn’t notice. If she does notice, be prepared to spout a white lie like, "Wait 'till I catch the guy who stole your ring!" Or, if the straight and narrow is more your style then ask her parents or siblings for her ring size.

Build an Engagement Ring that is Perfect

You have her ring size, you have decided your budget, now the real work begins. You need to now determine two things – the style of the ring as well as the metal type for the setting. The style of the ring will help you decide how it looks – traditional, sporty, funky, new-age, etc. The metal for the setting will determine its look and cost. You can choose to have a ring that is low-cost yet funky, or something that screeches elegance and class. Some common engagement ring styles from Novori are shown below:

Build an Engagement Ring with the Perfect Style:

With a single, classic solitaire you cannot go wrong. If you wish to be a little different, try a solitaire setting with diamond accents or you can even try a solitaire accented by other colorful gems like rubies or sapphires. If the funky look is your girl’s style then you can opt for a low-cost engagement ring like a permanent tattoo. A simple silver band is also considered in vogue if simplicity is your credo.

Build an Engagement Ring with the Perfect Setting:

You can let your budget determine the ring setting. Silver is cost-effective, yellow gold is considered traditional, and white gold shows a quiet understated elegance. If you are still confused, the best thing to do is keep a sharp eye out what she prefers. If you see her sporting steel or silver jewelry then try to choose a white gold setting. Choose yellow gold if she likes to wear that. If you want to save on costs, choose yellow gold in 18, 14, or 9ct. Novori Jewelry will custom make your engagement ring in gold, platinum or palladium.

Build an Engagement Ring with a Diamond Accented Setting:

If you want some diamonds to surround the main solitaire diamond then you want a diamond accented setting in the ring. Since these smaller diamonds accent the main one, it is known as a diamond accented setting. The surrounding diamonds can be round or baguettes – the latter just have a flat surface and set flush with the band of the ring. You may be surprised at how little these smaller diamonds cost and how much they add to the look of the ring.

Follow Your Instincts to Build an Engagement Ring

Don’t let the technicalities bog you down. Follow your instincts. Who knows your girl better than you? Remeber that she is in love with you and not the ring. The important thing is that you took time and trouble to select and build the engagement ring – and that should be the most important thing for anyone who truly loves you.
