Choosing an engagement ring

If you’ve popped the question, are just about to, or have just said ‘yes’ to a proposal - congratulations! Now the exciting task of choosing an engagement ring can begin! But there are so many to choose from, where do you begin?

Niche are official stockists of beautiful diamond and wedding ring designs from Brown and Newirth, Raphael Collection, Clogau Compose. Most of our engagement rings are handmade to order. We keep sample rings in store for people to try, so you can get a feel of what styles suit you. Once you’ve found the design you love, you can have it made with a metal and stone of your choice.

But there is another way to get your dream ring - design it yourself!

Step 1 - Gather inspiration 

Only you know the ring styles and designs that you like, so do some research and gather lots of ideas to work with. 

Pinterest and Instagram are a great place to start, with plenty of examples and inspiration from modern to vintage engagement rings. There are diamond rings, silver rings, sapphire rings, Crystal rings, emerald rings and more.

Look at the types of stones you like and the cuts, or shapes, that appeal to you. Consider what metal you like the look of the most. Would you choose yellow, rose or white gold rings? Or even platinum? What kind of wedding ring would you like and how would that sit alongside your ring? Designs often come together, so it may be useful to look at both.

These are a few key details to think about while you’re looking around. Create your own Pinterest board to save your ideas. Take some pictures or sketch some ideas. These will all help with starting a design.


Step 2 - Talk with us

Next, come into the store or give us a call. 

We’ll talk through the styles you like and look at different stones, metals and designs. You can try some samples to get an idea of how some of the details you like look in reality. And we can work out which ones suit you best.

Then together we’ll find a way to create your dream ring, within your budget. 


Step 3 - Get a 3D CAD design

We will make a three-dimensional drawing of your design, so you can admire it from every angle. That way you can make sure it’s exactly how you imagined it, before moving on to stage 4…


Step 4 - Try out a replica

Before we make your actual ring we recommend having a replica made. This is a mock-up of your design, made to size so that you can try your design on. Giving you the chance to make any final changes before sending your design off to be made. 

Once you’re happy with every detail, we will send the instructions to our Master Jeweller to begin making your design.


Step 5 - Dazzle everyone with your dream ring - designed by you!

Your dream ring arrives and you have a completely unique and personal engagement ring. Every detail has been designed by you and you have a wonderful memory - as well as an amazing ring!
