Very cool, but to be perfectly honest, I laughed out loud at your title indicating that he was making your ring out of gold bouillon.

Yay! I made my own engagement ring by hand, too! I may/may not have taken metalsmithing classes with the eventual intent of this (but Fiance thinks it was for the etsy shop, sure buddy.)

I love how personal it is, and even if it goes out of style, I’ll know that I made it myself. Mine is yellow gold with sapphire and moonstone.

How exciting and romantic!

A guy on Pricescope secretly handmade an engagement ring for his fiancé. He designed the cads, made the plastic molds, melted and alloyed the gold, and set the 1.53 ct asscher cut diamond all by himself! It turned out so beautiful and his thread is one of my all time favorite threads. You should really check it out.

Here’s the thread. It has all the technical details. He gets a lot of guidance and advice from some of the most knowledgeable experts on Pricescope, so your fiancé may want to look at it as well.

This is the video he made for his fiancé that documents the entire process. A must watch for waiting or newly engaged bees!

Good luck with your ring. I’m sure it will be lovely and will carry a huge sentimental value. Can’t wait to see it!
