@TripleNickle:  etsy.com and jamesallen.com …I like JA the best because you see actual photos of the diamonds/gemstones before purchasing

when I was designing my ring I actually started with Google images.  I searched for diamond ring + the different details I wanted.

Hey there if you go on theknot.com and click on that engagement ring pic you will be directed to a page with all major jewlers and you can search by style or just look for inspiration, i found diamond ideals in NY through the knot website which is where i want to get mine from!

You should try going in stores to check out rings. I got both my 1st engagment ring from Kay’s. My upgrade is brand new and they didn’t have it online. Plus Kay’s doesn’t post sale prices online (they only post clearance items). 

 

my upgrade that isn’t on their website yet (it’s 1/2 ct. they do have a 1 and 2 ct available online):

Are you looking for inspiration or somewhere you can actually buy it from? There are many jewelers, both in person and reputable online vendors, that can replicate pretty much any design, and for a lot less money than you think going custom would cost. A good source for inspiration would be portfolios with past works of jewelery metalsmiths. Leon Mege is well known for working with platinum, and has a pretty good gallery of different rings he’s made. The link is here. I second what a PP said about a google search with the specific characteristics that you want.

If you’re looking for the latter, there are quite a few vendors that the diamond experts over at Pricescope recommend. Engagement Rings Direct have designs inspired by the major brands. James Allen has 3D videos and models of their rings, so you know how it’ll look on your finger. Good Old Gold shows the entire collection of many of the major brands. I’ve personally dealt with Whiteflash, they have a good reputation on making custom rings.

Look at ring brands – such as Simon G or Demarco or Tacori to name a few. Those are rings that you will only find at independent jewelers and not at chain stores. You might find something more unique and to your liking there.
