Handmade engagement rings are not just a statement but also an investment.


A beautiful handmade engagement ring gives you the opportunity to create a piece of jewellery that is as unique as your relationship.  A beautifully crafted diamond engagement ring is an investment for the future.  In medieval Italy the ring was seen as a token of trust, based on the sheer value of the gift presented to the woman, while we may have moved on a little since then the significance is the same. When budgeting for your engagement ring, as a general  rule of thumb is to spend two months’ salary, but it comes down to what you are comfortable with. Bear in mind that most people do end up spending a little more than they originally intended.

We recommend leaving at least four months to plan for your handmade engagement ring, allowing sufficient time and budget for working on the details of the piece. There are many factors to take into consideration, such as the cut of the diamond. You could pick a stylish square cut, a perfect princess cut or perhaps a more radical marquise cut. Whatever you decide the team at Mad About Diamonds will be happy to discuss your ideas for the perfect ring.

Handmade engagement rings allow you to have a tighter grasp on the costing of your ring, if you adore the style but can only afford a smaller diamond, this can be accommodated. If however, this seems daunting we have a large selection of predesigned engagement rings in various styles and cuts to choose from.
