We had my wedding ring custom made. To be honest I feel like there’s something missing, but it was a gift from my husband to wear as a sign of my love, devotion, and fidelity and for that I love it. It took about a year to complete, from the time we walked into the jewelers with an idea until it was on my finger. Here’s a pic:

My SO has drawn up a sketch and taken it to the jewelers, so I know my ring is completely custom made and nothing like anyone else’s.  I’m excited to get it and post pics ๐Ÿ™‚

@MissHelen: That ring is crazy-gorgeous!

OP : I’m sure this doesn’t count, but my wedding band was custom-made. It’s just a plain band that fits around the setting of my e-ring, rofl.

My e-ring was custom and also felt like it took forever, but it was so incredibly worth it! Our jeweller is just finishing up my custom wedding band and I should get to take it home next week ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA: MissHelen, what a stunner! I don’t think anything’s missing at all.

We went to a small jeweler in Jeweler’s Row and had mine custom made.  I sketched up what I liked and used a picture of another similar ring so they could get the right idea.  Then they made a couple of wax models for me to try & make any final changes.  I’d say it took about 6 weeks – I love it!

Our local jeweler custom made my ring!  FI was super nervous since we didn’t get CADs or anything.. it was just based off of one of their “one of a kind” rings in the store.

Getting a custom ring was 100% worth the time and stress involved.  ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, mine took 8 long weeks..

@MalteseMama: Thank you!  And I totally understand what you’re going through!  Going the custom route is scary because there’s nothing tangible to look at or hold and say “Yay!  This is what my ring is going to look like!!”  

Fiance used to walk into the jeweler every other week to “check up” on it.. hahaha.  I’m pretty sure they all took a deep breath when the saw him coming in.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

FH had my ring custom designed with a local designer. Of course he has plenty of his own ideas to contribute. The process (after he purchased the stones) took from start to finish took four weeks.
