Designing a Custom Engagement Ring: The Process

She’s special, her ring should be too. At Mouradian Jewelers, we specialize in custom-made jewelry. Our most popular request is engagement rings.

How do I get a custom engagement ring made?

The entire process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks, depending on the ring itself, (rings designed around rare gemstones or unusual diamond cuts might take longer to source) so plan ahead with your proposal plans.

  1. Come into Mouradian Jewelers or schedule a one-on-one consultation. Work with Harout to plan initial sketches, talk about your bride-to-be’s style, your budget, and your timeline. Harout will teach you about the 4 C’s of Diamond buying, or can teach you the pros and cons of any other precious stones or metals you choose to use in your ring.
  2. Once you’ve decided on a style, Harout will send you a sketch draft of the ring for your approval.
    If you choose, following drawings, Harout can do 2D technical drawings, 3D digital renders and mock-ups, or produce a wax model.
  3. Choose a stone for the setting you’ve created from Harout’s collection of loose stones. If there’s something you want that isn’t in stock, like a rare cut or size, he can order it for you.
    Set the stone in your custom setting.
  4. Propose with your custom ring! Since you bought your engagement ring from Mouradian, you can come have it re-sized and cleaned for free as often as you like.

Mouradian Jewelers performs all work using a state-of-the-art CAD imaging system, involving you in the process from start to finish, not just in the design and end product. With a small, boutique shop like Mouradian, you can be assured of transparency and involvement throughout the process.

Mouradian Jewelers works with many different budgets, timelines, and jewelry styles. Call us to schedule your private consultation.
