Set a Budget

Setting a budget before beginning the engagement ring design process is essential. It helps to ensure that you are comfortable with the amount you are spending and that you can make informed choices about the design elements of your ring. A budget can also help guide the design process and prevent any unnecessary delays or disappointments. Our team at Wilson & Son Jewelers understands the importance of staying within a budget and can work with you to create a beautiful custom-designed engagement ring that fits your unique needs and preferences.

Choose Materials

When designing a custom engagement ring, choosing the right materials is key to achieving the desired look and feel. At Wilson & Son Jewelers, we offer a wide range of metals, including classic options like platinum, white gold, and yellow gold, as well as more unique options like rose gold and mixed metals. We also offer a selection of gemstones and diamonds to incorporate into the design. Diamonds are a mainstay for engagement rings, but we also provide other gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. The selection of materials ultimately comes down to personal preference, style, and budget.
