1. Choose your favorite Gold Color

The probably easiest question of them all: your favorite gold color. There are other materials than gold but to be honest this is and will be the most popular material to create your bespoke wedding bands and your can decide out of white, rose and yellow gold.

 

Look at your jewellery collection, your engagement ring and your personal style. What color suits with your bracelets, necklaces and your earrings? Or maybe you have a go to gold color anyway! If you two do not agree, you can also have different gold colors for you and your groom-to-be.

2. Decide for your Ring Width

Some like it wide some very thin, this is another choice that depends widely on your preferences. Mostly women go for a slightly or even drastically thinner wedding band then your husband. For women the popular width of the ring is 2mm to 2.5mm and for men it starts with about 4mm and goes up to 7mm. In the end it everything needs to fit to your style you choose and that’s why you are going the perfect way by working with a custom jewellery designer on your custom-made wedding bands. An expert in bespoke wedding bands this area can help you to choose the design and the fitting width as well as the setting of your sparkling accents.

3. Explore the different Ring Profiles

This decision is all about comfort. Does your ring sits well on your finger, do you feel comfortable in your daily life and does it accompany you in every activity during your life. The profiles are divided in outside and inside with the unique objective to fit well. On the picture below your can see the difference of the profiles where the inside goes from light comfort-fit with a small rounding to heavy comfort-fit with a well noticeable rounding in the inside of the wedding ring. The last inside profile is scooped where the edges of the ring are extending.

 

The most popular choices for wedding bands is a half-round outside profile combined with a comfort-fit in the inside! I recommend you to try on some different styles and feel the difference in a shop before you go on to design your custom-made designs and decide for a specific profile!

4. Select your Ring Finish

For your ring finish you have the choice to opt for polished which is very shiny and reflective. This is a perfect choice if you want to have your ring noticed. It is the most common option for rings and especially for women’s wedding bands. The polished surface need to be maintained and cleaned regularly to keep its beauty alive.

 

The brush surface of a wedding ring is textured and it looks like as the texture of the ring surface was made with a wire brush. When you look closely you can see the tiny brush-like marks which makes it not easy to see any small scratches on the surface. It is the most popular choice for men’s wedding bands.

 

The matt surface is similar to the brush finish but smoothly polished. This wedding band finish is also not shiny and without any reflection or texture.

5. Add sparkling Diamond Accents

The best and most spectacular part of the decisions for your bespoke wedding bands is the sparkling aspect! The choice of diamonds on your wedding rings. For women it is the most popular to create an eternity wedding band either full, 3/4 around the band or only half way set. The Diamonds on the ring can be set in endless variations. There are four popular settings named Channel, Pavé, Bar and Shared Prong.

Add sparkling Diamond Accents

In a channel setting two tracks of gold surround the row of diamonds in the middle of your wedding band and protect the girdle area of your diamonds. The Pavé setting reduces the use of gold and the diamonds have more presence on your wedding ring. Small prongs or beads are used to hold your sparkling gem stones in place. With this settings it seems like your ring is purely out of diamonds with a continuous shiny surface. On a ring with bar setting are small gold bars between your diamonds and protect their sides. Finally the shared prong setting is a combination of channel and bar setting and holds your diamonds with prongs wrapped around the crown of your diamonds. This setting allows the light to stage the brilliance of your diamonds.

 

For men it is popular to go for a plain band with a matt or polished surface in his preferred gold color. Plain wedding bands for the guys and minimalist eternity rings for the ladies start from S$1200 and go up based on the individual diamond size and total carat weight.

Amanda Ang – Founder of August Bespoke

While Amanda grew up with a passionate gemstone collector as a mam, life initially took her down a different path. She started her career at Goldman Sachs in New York, before venturing into journalism and eventually building startups in the travel and lifestyle space.

 

After many of her friends started getting engaged she realized that the experience of buying an engagement ring was broken. There are 3 major problems: the stores sell you what they have, not what you want, the options are limited and you don’t know who to trust!

 

This inspired her to create August Bespoke — a custom jewelry experience centered around you.

 

Unlike other jewelry stores, she cares about neutral and objective advice so that you can make the smartest and most informed decision with a GIA-certified gemstone expert on your side.
