Custom vs Mass-Produced Engagement Rings…
Which is Better?
Let’s face it … there’s a big difference between having engagement rings custom made and buying a mass-produced ring from the giant franchise jewelry stores.
It’s sort of like the difference between writing your girl a love letter and just giving her a greeting card from the grocery store. Sure, both options show that you care. But only one of them expresses your true, personal feelings – and shows that you put extra thought into making her feel special.
When it comes to asking for someone’s hand in marriage, shouldn’t all proposals be this special?
If you’re getting ready to pop the big question, here are some of the reasons why you should strongly consider having your ring custom made.

It shows you went the extra mile.
You’re about to express your lifelong commitment to the girl you love. Now is not the time to cut corners! Having engagement rings custom made shows extra effort, devotion and a willingness to go the extra mile. It shows you put more thought into the ring and wanted it to be perfect – just like her.
There’s no other ring like it.
There’s no one else like your girl, so why should she have a ring that’s worn by hundreds of other women? A custom engagement ring is truly one of a kind – unlike the mass-produced rings in big jewelry stores, which can have thousands of duplicates all over the world.
The quality is exceptional.
Standard rings found in most U.S. jewelry stores are made overseas, along assembly lines staffed by low-wage workers. The quality doesn’t even come close to engagement rings custom made by skilled designers. You get a truly beautiful, valuable piece that is made with care and attention.
It’s made to your wishes (or hers).
You have total say in the style of the ring, the details, the size of the diamond, the type of band and more. Whatever your girl loves – it can be made, just for her. You can work directly with the designer to make sure the ring turns out just as you envisioned, or even more beautiful!
It costs less than you think.
If you’ve been shopping around at other jewelry shops, then you know custom ring prices are comparable to traditional rings – except you get so much more with a custom-made piece: premium quality, unparalleled craftsmanship, individual attention from a professional ring designer, and of course a truly one-of-a-kind ring.
She’ll love it!
For all the reasons above and so many others, your girl will absolutely adore her ring and the thought that went into it. She’ll love wearing it and showing it off to all her friends, family and coworkers.

Quick & Fast
Custom rings typically take 4-6 weeks to create, so if you need a ring TODAY, you can quickly purchase a mass-produced engagement ring. OR, you can still quickly get a custom ring by choosing the center diamond, having the jeweler set it in a temporary solitaire ring the same day and tell your fiancé that she gets the romantic opportunity to design her *dream* ring together with you.
You don’t mind that her ring will look the same as thousands of other women’s rings
The ring setting will likely be a bit cheaper choosing the mass-produced route simply because it is made from a mold and they make it overseas on an assembly line in volume. However at Vanessa Nicole Jewels, we offer price breaks on the setting when you also choose a diamond with us, so in the end, it doesn’t end up being too much more going the custom route
Depending on what jewelry store you go to, the custom process can seem daunting because there are a lot of options to choose from and you have to rely on someone to create your vision. If this is a concern but you still prefer a custom ring, just make sure that you’re working with someone who SPECIALIZES in custom engagement rings and has a proprietary process to ensure the experience is flawless. At Vanessa Nicole Jewels, we have all 5 star client reviews due to our fun creation process to ensure you have a flawless experience.
