Vanessa Nicole Custom Engagement Rings

Solitaire Engagement Ring - Vanessa Nicole Jewels
"We visited Tiffany, DeBeers, Cartier and several high end stores. Many of them had gorgeous rings, but they were either far over priced, or not “exactly” what I wanted. We spent hours with Vanessa, and she gave us her undivided attention throughout the entire process."
~Danny & Carla Abas

The 3 ways we help you create her perfect custom ring

#1 – You'll receive a CAD rendering to ensure it looks exactly like you want it to.

We understand how important it is for your custom ring to be perfectly aligned with your vision, so we provide a CAD rendering for your approval prior to actually making it. Take a look at this image as an example:

Vanessa Nicole Creates Amazing Custom Engagement Rings That Will Make Her Jaw Drop – We Work With Clients Worldwide!

3 Reasons To Choose Custom Engagement Rings


If you propose with a pre-made ring from a traditional jewelry store, you'll be giving her the same design thousands of other women already wear. Large jewelry manufacturers churn these out in bulk. Custom engagement rings, on the other hand, are personalized and built exclusively for you – they're truly one of a kind.


After the proposal, she'll be curious where you got her ring. There's nothing worse than if you were to say: "I simply clicked 'buy' on a website." Or "I went to a local store where I just picked something out of the case." Think about how AMAZING you would look if you said, "I created a custom, one-of-a-kind ring where I was involved every step of the way." And then you surprise her with a Making Of The Ring™ DVD highlighting the process of creating her a custom engagement ring. You would be going above and beyond for her and she would LOVE it!!!


Most engagement rings sold in the U.S. are made on an assembly line overseas where labor is fast & cheap. These cost-cutting methods affect the quality tremendously. The engagement rings are often made by poorly skilled workers who have no interest in the people who will be buying the ring since they are thousands of miles away. Our micro pavé engagement rings are custom created in our San Diego studio. Each diamond is set with precision under 20x magnification for security, maximum light reflection & brilliance.
