Are you planning to get engaged or tie the knot in 2022? If so you are no doubt preparing to hunt down and find the perfect diamond set of wedding rings. Before you visit a jewellery store in Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall, consider visiting the jewellery studio of master craftsmen Burgundy Bespoke Jewellers. Specialising in custom engagement rings and wedding rings, Burgundy Bespoke Jewellers make it easy to find your perfect diamond jewellery.
Why Opt For Bespoke?
When you buy an engagement or wedding ring, you’re not simply buying it for the sake of it. Your rings are symbolic of your love and commitment to one another and should represent your uniqueness as a couple and individuals.
This is why your engagement ring design or wedding bands should be custom made with you as the focus. When you work with one of our jewellers on a custom design, we incorporate design features that you love, work with your preferred diamond shape and metal type.
Should you have an heirloom piece from a beloved family member you want to include, we can remake it to be part of your new ring. Opting for bespoke wedding rings means creating your dream rings that truly suit you and reflect your personality. This is something that a mass-produced design purchased from a store-front jeweller simply cannot offer.
Can I Afford Bespoke?
While a well-known shop front jeweller may offer what is perceived as a wide range of jewellery in Brisbane, the reality is these pieces are pre-made and often made in their thousands. This means that your engagement ring is lacking in originality and uniqueness.
An engagement ring and wedding band should reflect the personality of the wearer and be a set they take great joy from. Choosing to have your rings custom made not only affords the opportunity for an unusual setting but the ability to hide secret meanings and love notes within the ring. Adding another layer of specialness to what is already a wonderfully special occasion.
Popular Engagement Ring Designs
There is a long-standing misconception that having your jewellery custom made is overwhelmingly expensive. The reality is that having your jewellery made by hand can in fact work out at a similar price point as store-bought jewellery.
As master craftsmen with no fixed shop front and long-standing relationships with suppliers, we are able to make bespoke wedding and engagement rings incredibly affordable. No matter your budget, we can work with you to source the perfect diamonds and materials. You need not compromise and the result is a unique ring that is made to exceptional standards.
Choose Your Cut & Design
When creating diamond engagement rings or custom wedding bands, one of the first steps is to settle on your preferred diamond shape, some of the most beautiful options include:
Brilliant Cut Diamonds
While not specific to a particular shape, a brilliant cut diamond is simply a diamond that has been cut and crafted with multiple facets. This allows maximum light to pass through the stone and creates that intense sparkle we all know and love.
A round, brilliant cut diamond is the most expensive and highly sought after for engagement rings.
Oval Cut Diamonds
Oval cut diamonds offer a similar brilliance to round diamonds but can be as much as 30% cheaper. This is simply due to their being less in demand, though this is beginning to change as settings featuring oval diamonds are increasingly popular.
An added benefit of choosing an oval diamond is that they give the illusion of greater size even when offering the same carats as a round diamond.
Cushion Cut Diamonds
A square cut with rounded corners, a cushion cut diamond is named so due to its pillow-like appearance. An older cut, having been around for close to 200 years, the cushion cut was the most popular cut for a diamond until being pushed aside in favour of a round cut.
Similar to an oval diamond, this shape tends to be around 25% cheaper than a round cut and offers rainbow flashes of light in its larger facets.
Princess Cut Diamonds
A true square, a princess cut diamond is cut with a minimum of 50 facets, creating a truly brilliant sparkle. While they are a timeless, more contemporary design favoured by many, the sharp corners and crisp edges can make this cut more prone to chips and scratches.
Emerald Cut Diamonds
Featuring concentric, rectangular facets, emerald cut diamonds are a true classic. Their strong, bold appearance is suited to a confident personality and is ideal for those looking to have an outstanding ring on a budget. Emerald cut diamonds are cheaper per carat than other cuts while still offering a brilliant, eye-catching sparkle.
Each cut will be suited to one or more settings in particular, so depending on how you envisage the final result, these factors will need to work together.
