Have a great idea for the perfect engagement ring? You are in the right place!

As designers, we are proud of our collection of engagement rings–there are classic styles with clean lines and smooth silhouettes, there are ornate pieces of art flaunting intricate patterns and complex design elements, and there is everything in between. But we know that every person is unique, and every relationship is unique. If your heart has been aching to express that uniqueness and customize your own engagement ring for yourself or someone you love, we would be honored to help!

We are often asked, “How can I design my own engagement ring online?” The good news is, you don’t need to live nearby to design your ring with us–we are fully equipped to help you through the process remotely. Whether you want to base your ring off of one of our most-loved styles or create something completely new, our team has the skills and experience to get you there. With your own personal design consultant helping you along the way, you will have the confidence and expertise you need to bring your vision to fruition.

When you customize your own engagement ring, it becomes an expression of your personality and creativity, a piece of your inner self sparkling in the light of day. It can be an outward expression of who you are in relationship with your closest person. You can truly make it your own.

All our rings hold up to your standards for sustainable, ethical jewelry, and our existing designs might just have the elegance, simplicity, or vintage notes you are looking for.

Or maybe to get the perfect fit, you’ll need to customize your own engagement ring. Rest easy, knowing we make the process easy and fun. If the ring that speaks to you isn’t found in our gallery, we can design the ring that does! With the help of our experts, you can design your own engagement ring online.

The Custom Design Process

Some people come to us with their dream ring all sketched out. Others come with pictures of their faves from Instagram or Pinterest. Some just have an idea in their head. No matter which category you are in, your personal design consultant will be right beside you to help you customize your own engagement ring, ensuring that the verve of your life and your relationship shines through in your ring, putting all the right facets on display.

You can start with a simple questionnaire or consultation. One of our team members will reach out to you with a quote or options based on your request. Once you decide to move forward with us to design your own engagement ring online, we require a deposit of half the purchase price upfront before we begin the computer-aided design (CAD) work. This allows us to dedicate our time and resources to your project and give you the personal attention you deserve.

Once we’ve fleshed out all the details of your design, you’ll have the chance to look over full 3-D renderings from multiple angles. Our renderings are photo-realistic, and include hand shots, so you can gauge proportions, along with a stunning animation. This is the moment when you can make sure we have every detail of the design just right. When you customize your own engagement ring, revisions are free (up to five) because our goal is to create your ring exactly how you want it to be!

Once you approve the design, we will handcraft your ring to your specifications. We go to lengths that not all shops do to make sure your ring is heirloom quality and made to last. When you design your own engagement ring online with Taylor Custom Rings, you can rest easy knowing we care about your long-term happiness with your ring. After design approval, most rings take just 3-4 weeks to make (exceptions include designs with custom-cut diamonds or gems), and all of our rings include free fully-insured two-day shipping (signature required). In the meantime, you’ll get weekly updates, so you know when your ring is on track to be finished. Once it’s done, we’ll let you know the good news (and send a photo or video, if you’d like!), and you can take care of your final payment. Then we’ll ship the ring right to your door!

But our relationship doesn’t end there! When you customize your own engagement ring with Taylor Custom Rings, you’re covered by our two-year warranty, so you can know that we will be there to help you with cleaning and polishing and any other maintenance issues that might arise. We will also have your design on file, in case you want to add to your stack later on with a custom wedding band or two. And we hope you’ll share your photos and stories with us–we absolutely love being a little part of your proposal--and your life.
