I was just wondering if anyone here had their engagement ring custom made by an online jeweller? Would you recommend them? Or has anyone heard of jeweller who does exceptional custom work?
I read through the boards at BTD and contacted Amcor Designs and their customer service is impeccable and they gave me some quotes but I still want to shop around and see what else is out there.
I should probably mention that I want lab-created gemstones (Avarra emerald centre stone with moissanite side stones) on my ring so if you’ve worked with a jeweller who does great custom work AND has no qualms about lab-created gemstones, please let me know. And photos, of course, are most welcome.

Jewels by Erica Grace makes me swoon, and I know they have no qualms about working with lab created. (discovered through BTD as well!)

Just had a look at her site and apparently they will no longer be doing custom settings 🙁

We got my ring from mastergoldcraft on etsy. Mine wasn’t a custom ring but he does do custom. He was really great to buy from and the ring is amazing. He ships to NZ and shipping was surprisingly inexpensive. There are lots of etsy sellers who do custom work. It would definitely be worth a look.

I looked at Green Lakes jewelry works when we were shopping. I’m not sure about lab created, but they were happy to work with gemstones.

You will need to look at their styles & figure out who best fits your style/vision!

Thanks! I’ll check him out and inexpensive shipping is always a bonus!
One of the hassles of living in NZ lol. And I have to say that I adore your morganite ring.
Thanks and your rings are divine! How I’ve missed seeing them before on the Bee.. I don’t know. Love the double prongs.
Thanks! Your ring is gorgeous!
I shall e-mail them and ask *fingers crossed*
As always, you are fantastic when it comes to jewellery advice – thank you! As soon as I finish my essay/get bored with writing it/feel the urge to procrastinate, I will be googling everyone that you and the other PPs have recommended
I really want a cathedral band (either engraved or engraved and with side stones) with a four double-prong setting. Although I’ve been told that with an emerald I should get a bezel setting
