Finding the perfect ring for your true love can be a daunting task. The decision would be a lot easier if there is an idea as to what sort of jewelry your partner likes. If they prefer something simple, maybe minimalist engagement rings could be a route worth going down. Or maybe they prefer the complete opposite. Knowing information like this could make the process of finding the right ring a lot less stressful.
However, there are loads of places that you can go to, to get the ring that you want. For example, Stunning diamond engagement rings can be found here in London. Nevertheless though, with so many options out there, it might be best to create a custom ring for one of the most important investments you will ever make. Not only will a custom ring add personal sentimentality, but the end result will truly be one-of-a-kind. Here are 5 expert tips from Scout Mandolin Founder + Designer, Julie Martin, on how to customize your engagement ring:

- A Hidden Gem
A thoughtful detail made for your eyes only, adding a birthstone or favorite gem on the inside of the band will add yet another sentiment to your engagement ring. If you like this idea then it’s time to start doing some digging. Find out what your partners birthstone or favourite gemstone is, if you don’t already know. If you do, then get it now... no time to wait! This can add a beautiful and personal element to the perfect ring that your true love will adore.
- A Hidden Fingerprint
A sweet personalization of your fingerprint on the inside of the band she will feel every time she puts on her ring.
- An Engraving
A hidden message that only you two know is there, a sweet note, coordinates of where you met, or the date of your wedding are all great ideas of engravings for the inside of the band. You can get custom silicone rings engraved with personal messages or names. This type of ring is increasingly popular for it’s versatility, comfort and affordability. It is also much more practical than a metal ring as you can take it to the gym, the tennis court, the golf range, the swimming pool, or anywhere you want without worrying that you will damage the ring, your finger or lose something that cannot be replaced (because it can be!)
- Consider her profession
Her ring should match her lifestyle and what she realistically wants to wear on her hand every day. If your bride-to-be is a nurse, she will most likely need something low profile so she can put gloves without it getting in the way.
- Customize the gallery or inside of the ring
These areas often go overlooked on rings. The gallery or inside of the ring is a blank palette where a custom detail can be added and can capture a memory and add extra sentiment. For example, one of my customers said “I love you” for the first time in Northern Ireland at a special place called The Dark Hedges. We created a beautiful motif of the dark hedges underneath the setting. Every time she puts her ring on, she remembers that special day.
