custom wedding band?

Recommended Posts

So I went to look for a wedding band the other day, just to get some ideas, and when I was talking to the jeweler, he said that I would be better of getting a custom made wedding band. My ERing is a 3 stone princess cut; so all the bands that I tried on left a gap between the band and my ering. He said that they could make one so it fits in perfectly (leaving no gap). I guess they take a molding of the side of your ering, and then shape one side of the wedding band to match it perfectly. He had one on hand that he had just done, and it looked really good. Has anyone done this?

I had a different ring design. But my wedding band is custom done to fit my e-ring. I love the fact that they fit together perfectly. I considered (to save money) not having the custom ring done. I'm glad we decided to do the custom band. The gaps between the e-ring and band would have driven me crazy.

Almost all of my friends have had this done. My diamond in my E-ring is an oval (it was my grandmother's) so if I decide to get a band I will have to do this as well. I think you'll be really happy you did the custom route!

I have an old antique ring that was my great grandmothers. The setting is so unique and large there is no way a traditional wedding band will work. I debated forever on what to do, but finally decided to do a custom band. The jewler is making it for me this saturday and i'm SO excited. basically, he's making it out of wax first so I can see exactly how it fits to make sure i approve :) then they use the wax to mold the actual ring. I am THRILLED with this because i thought there was no logical solution. I'll post some pics as soon as I get my ring so you can see :) here is the e-ring to give u an idea:

My engagement ring and wedding ring were purchased as a set, so they fit together beautifully. However, looking at them you wouldn't know that - they could totally be worn separately. The band has a little bevel edge that slips into a groove on the e-ring so they stay together and don't move around (band is channel-set diamonds, so it keeps them upright) and they sit tightly together so you don't have that gap you talk about. The ring designer is a friend of my fiance, so he told him upfront that was a concern of mine.

Mine was the same...i have a cushion cut with pave around and everything left a gap so I got 2 bands cutom made-one on top, one on bottom-and I LOVE it. The jeweler did a great job and I saved a lot of $$.

I would definitely recommend a custom made ring!

My e-ring is a 3 stone and i decided to have one custom made. It was a really cool experience. Like Josie, I met with the artist, he designed a sample and made a wax casting, I approved it, then the jeweler made the ring. I kinda wanted to kepp the wax casting because it was purple and looked funky with my e-ring :) I definitely recommend the custom band because no one else will have one like it!

I would definitely get a custom band made. I also had a custom band made. None of the bands in any store I went in would fit my E ring and like a couple of the other girls. The jeweler made a wax of what the band would look like so I could see what it would realistically look like with my E ring and then once I approved the design the jeweler went ahead and made the band. What I also liked is the jeweler found out the clarity of my E ring so he could match the diamonds in the band to the diamonds in my E ring. That way, my E ring didn't have one color diamonds and my band have another color, KWIM? A little more expensive for my husband but hey, I'm worth it. LOL

I got a custom band made because otherwise i would of had a gap too. I had a princess cut center stone and than 2 heart stones on each side that would get smaller. Here's a pic, the rings are close together but you can kinda see how the band stones go up a little so they will fit good against the e-ring.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
