MY STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH
TO CUSTOM ENGAGEMENT RINGS

TWO WAYS TO CREATE YOUR RING

BESPOKE OR CUSTOMISING AN EXISTING DESIGN
You know in your heart that, you want to propose but you don’t want to propose with any old ring that you can find on the high street, you want a ring that shows that you “get them” - their style, their personality, their vibe.

You want to show how special they are to you by the thought, love, and attention you have given to the ring that symbolises this new chapter in your relationship.

Now that is a daunting task, especially when you take into consideration the endless possibilities.

To simplify the process, I have mapped out the two paths you can take.
PATH 1

BESPOKE
WE START FROM SCRATCH

We start the design process together. I will talk to you about your ideas and explore what references you might like to add to your design. Perhaps an art deco piece of furniture you love or a detail of where you first met. The possibilities are endless.

The starting price for a bespoke ring is £1995. This option allows for a more intricate and personalised creation. We will spend time and thought designing and creating a ring completely unique to you as a couple.

Whether you have a clear vision or need help getting started I will collaborate with you to a create a one-of-a-kind piece which echoes you as a couple.

We’ll provide practical guidance every step of the way, ensuring
that what we create together will be loved for years to come.
PATH 2

CUSTOM
WE MAKE AN EXISTING DESIGN YOURS

We start the process using one of the designs from an existing collection.

The starting price for a custom ring is £995. This option allows for a unique touch at an accessible price.

You will give the chosen design your own personal touch by selecting your stone, metal colour, size, and modifying the design to create a piece that is uniquely yours.

I will provide practical guidance every step of the way ensuring that your piece feels “perfect” for you as a couple today, tomorrow, and for the years to come.

DESIGN PROCESS OVERVIEW

RELAXED & STRAIGHT FORWARD FROM START TO FINISH
STEP 1

INITIAL CONSULT

Book a free consultation with me, Aishleen Lester, either online or in the workshop.

We will find out more about you and your ideas so far. We will discuss design inspiration, budget, and timescales for a clear design brief. You will receive an overview of the process, this is also the perfect time to raise any new questions.
After the consultation I will send you a recap of our conversation, including which design pathway we will go down, the design brief, and estimated costs.
STEP 2

DESIGN and STONE SELECTION

The next step will expand on the design brief to agree upon the vision for your piece.
I will arrange to show you a selection of stones appropriate to your design brief and vision, this can either happen in person or online.
Choosing options remotely is now made easier with gem certificates, photos, and videos which I can send via your preferred form of communication.
Once your stone and favourite design have been decided upon we will develop the idea further.
STEP 3

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

Having agreed on the budget, the direction of the design, and the stone, you will be invoiced for 50% of the total price.

Your design will be developed in collaboration with a Computer Aided Design (CAD) specialist. Unlimited revisions can be made until we achieve a result which is a design that you love.

STEP 4

CRAFTING AND DELIVERY

It takes 6-8 weeks to craft your custom piece. It will take a little longer if you have chosen the bespoke or blank canvas design pathway.

Need it sooner? Let us know and we will endeavour to accommodate a tighter deadline.

When your ring is ready you can either collect it from our workshop or opt for discreet, secure delivery to a designated address.
