When it comes to engagement rings, ready to wear might not be the first thing to pop into your mind. Whereas the average fashionista is familiar with couture vs. ready to wear fashion, she might not realize that the same standard applies to bridal jewelry! And while custom engagement rings always take time, designer engagement rings catch some shoppers by surprise with a 2-6 week turnaround time. In general, here is a timeline for about how far in advance you need to shop for different types of engagement rings:
Custom Engagement ring – a few months. These rings offer the most options for shoppers looking for something completely unique, though they take the longest. We work with you from design, to material selection, to creating a wax model, before the ring even begins production.
Bespoke Designer engagement ring – 2-6 weeks. Depending on the brand, the style, and the size of the center diamond you’re looking for, this option gives you the best of both worlds. You get high end manufacturing (and all of our designer semi mountings are made in the USA) plus a ton of customization options, but a shorter turnaround time.
Ready to wear engagement ring – Exactly what they sound like! These are the rings that you can take home from our store with you the same day you fall in love with them. These rings range from our antique beauties to the rings we designed around specific diamonds, or just a few of our own designs we know our customers will love.
