A symbol of the promise made between lovers, an everlasting memento of your love, and a treasured possession that captures the true essence of your journey together – that is what an engagement ring is. Apart from being a gorgeous piece of jewelry accessory that is sure to make heads turn wherever you go; a luxury engagement ring is so much more because of the “meaning” it carries. And do you know what is even more precious than a ready-to-wear ring picked off the shelf? One that is handcrafted to perfection by a master craftsman using only the best of raw materials!
At A.JAFFE, we truly believe that an engagement ring should be unique to the person who wears it and we put in our hearts and souls into making your dream ring a reality. Here is a deep dive into the world of handmade engagement rings for women and everything that goes into making them extraordinary.
Crafting meaningful engagement rings for women is an art
Of course, any high-end ring that features a high-grade metal band and one or more precious gemstones on it is bound to be a gorgeous showstopper. But what many people fail to realize is the difference between an off-the-shelf ring and one that is custom-made to perfection. Here, we are not referring to the conventional meaning of the word “perfect” – on the contrary, we are talking about how a certain ring is perfect for you.
What is the most important thing in an engagement ring?
The important aspects of any engagement ring include the raw materials used in it, the jewelry-making processes, and the degree of intricate craftsmanship that goes into making it. These can be further broken down into the following aspects:
- The base metal or metal alloy (platinum, silver, yellow gold, white gold, rose gold)
- The gemstone of choice (diamond, ruby, emerald, sapphire, topaz)
- The cut, clarity, carat weight, and color of the stone
- The design and style of the engagement ring
- The number of stones used in the chosen style of engagement ring design
- The type of setting and corresponding prongs designed to hold the stones
- The level of intricacy involved in crafting the ring
- The degree of customization involved
- The total cost of the ring
- The warranty provided by the jewelry maker or seller
And while these ten aspects are considered the “most important” factors, we believe there is one more thing that precedes all of these – the “meaning” of the ring. That is where the magic of handcrafted rings can make all the difference. Every love story is unique and so is the individual who will wear the engagement ring. So, we often nudge our patrons to think of it as something that must have a personal touch. After all, any piece of jewelry that is gifted (or bought) with thought and pure emotion will invariably be more special than a mass produced product that is chosen from an existing array of designs.
So, how can you ensure that the engagement ring you choose is truly meaningful? Well, it starts with identifying a few things that can help you make an informed choice:
- The personality of the wearer of the ring
- The story of your relationship
- What does the ring signify?
- How does it stand out from the billions of rings available in the market?
- The lifestyle and personal preferences of the wearer of the ring
How do you make a meaningful engagement ring?
Once you have satisfactory answers to the aforementioned questions, it is time to relay all of this information to your jeweler. An experienced jewelry designer will understand your story, your aesthetic preferences, your stylistic choices, your budget, and your needs before recommending an engagement ring that fits like a glove.
Did you know that each engagement ring we make is methodically handcrafted by highly skilled and experienced artisans who value quality, perfection, craftsmanship, and artistry above everything else? With A.JAFFE’s creations, you can be sure of the fact that your engagement ring is not just another good-looking piece of jewelry; it is a work of pure art and a physical representation of your love story.
The golden rule for engagement rings
The only rule that we believe every engagement ring buyer must follow is to try and make the ring as personal, unique, and thoughtful as possible! Of course, that does not mean you will never find an exceptional engagement ring design that you can buy right away off the shelf. On the contrary, the A.JAFFE collection of ready-to-wear rings is as diverse and alluring as it can get. Like we mentioned before, we handcraft each ring so you will never feel like you have a mass produced ring in any case. However, in case you feel that the off-the-shelf ring of your choice lacks that much-needed personal touch, you can easily customize it to your liking.
At A.JAFFE, we understand this golden rule because we believe in it. From the get go, we get you involved in the process of designing your dream engagement ring. With varying degrees of personalization and customization options, you can decide exactly what you want the final result to look and feel like.
