What's The Best Way To Design Your Own Engagement Ring?

Q: Hello APW!

Pre-engaged and looking into making some non-traditional rings for myself and my partner for our upcoming engagement. Does anyone have any good independent jewelers (thinking Etsy or otherwise) in the old Rolodex who do custom ring design with sustainable materials for (clincher) not a TON of money? Ideally it’s a person or company who can do design work from afar.

Note: I’m talking actually designing the ring (as in, changing the shape of the band and getting a little funky) as opposed to “designing” an engagement ring (pick one of five stones, pick one of five settings, pick the metal out of these three options, etc.).


One Ring to Rule Them All

OK, APW—let’s talk about bling. What were the best resources you found? Favorite jewelers to work with? Ethical companies you want shout out? THe time is now.
