In recent years, more and more people in Singapore and Malaysia are getting into customised bridal jewellery to create something that is uniquely theirs, especially when they’re getting engaged.
Traditionally, the wedding ring is a symbol of a promise worn by the lady on her left ring finger, believed to be closest to the heart. The most popular engagement ring is the diamond solitaire, but more and more have chosen to customize creative and unique designs to mark this milestone in their lives. A recent famous example would be Meghan Markle’s stunning engagement ring, designed by Prince Harry himself. Prince Harry personally chose a three-carat cushion-cut yellow diamond from Botswana, where the couple had spent time, and diamond side stones that were given to the prince by his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
So why would you want to customise a proposal ring?
1. Sentimental Reasons:
The main gemstone could bear personal significance, perhaps passed down from a grandmother or a gift from your mother. The good thing about customised bridal jewellery is that you can create an updated, modern piece of engagement ring with the gemstone, while preserving its heritage as an heirloom piece.
2. A Special Gemstone:
Other than the iconic diamond, there are many gemstone options for you to choose from for your engagement ring. For example, a lady born in May might choose a luxurious emerald, the birthstone for May, to be the main gemstone for her custom-made proposal ring. Someone who loves red can also pick a brilliant ruby, symbolising love, power and protection to be the centerpiece for a bespoke piece of bridal jewellery.
3. Telling Your Story
One of the top reasons for custom made jewellery from our customers in Singapore and Malaysia is that they appreciate the opportunity to tell a personal story through the design of the ring. Every detail of the ring can be personally picked out to bear significance to your journey, or to symbolise warm memories. Some choose to have stylised initials within the stone casting for a subtle symbol, others use the gemstone combination to signify a special story. For example, when creating a piece of bespoke bridal jewellery for someone who loves the ocean, you can choose a rich sapphire for the main gemstone, surrounded by shimmering diamonds representing the soaring crests of the waves.
Spend some time to bounce ideas off each other or share some treasured memories with your special person so you can use that to weave unique elements into your ring. Let the details in the ring tell your story, so you can own a meaningful, one-of-a-kind piece of custom-made fine jewelry.
4. Expressing your personal style
When creating a piece of custom-made jewellery, there are no boundaries to your creativity. Get an idea of what you like — whether it’s something that’s delicate or bold, traditional or avant garde. When deciding on a fine jewellery design, select a unique design that is elegant and not based on trends. This is a ring that you will want to wear for many years to come and when created with a personal significance, will become a classic piece that can stand the test of time.
