My custom engagement ring arrived today, and I wanted to share some details about the process! We worked with a company in NY (we’re on the west coast), and designed the ring together after FI proposed with the diamond a couple of months ago. It came out perfectly, I’m so excited!!
The company we worked with was absolutely fantastic, they were able to do exactly what we wanted (with a few changes on our end during the process, I might add!). The whole process was actually really fun, it was great to be able to see each step and understand part of what goes into making a ring. We based the ring off of a couple of Tacori rings that we liked, and modified to have more of a true halo and a slightly different band.
I’ve included some pics of the mold, the ring cast in metal without the stones, and the finished product – sorry that the pictures are so big! All of the pictures are what we got from the jeweler except for the one that’s outside.
Feel free to share your ring pics, too!

Wow, I think that’s the prettiest halo I’ve ever seen. I’m not generally a halo girl, but that ring is absolutely stunning! I love the side stones and the shape of a band! Very nice work!

@HVbride: yes! I love that he chose the diamond himself and that we got to go through the process of designing the setting together.
