1. Create the Design

Visit our showroom and meet with a jewellery expert to discuss any design ideas you may have. If you are unsure of the design, you can explore our range of engagement rings for inspiration and our experts can work with you to customise these designs to suit your style and budget.

2. Select the Hero Gemstone

Possibly one of the most significant decisions in the process is the shape of the centre stone as it will determine the overall feel of the ring. We can assist you in the gemstone sourcing and selection journey to ensure you find the perfect stone.

3. Designing The Structure

The style of claw setting is an important consideration, as it determines the way in which light enters the stone and the way it sparkles. We share various claw setting options designed suit the gemstone shape to enhance its natural beauty.

4. Choosing the Metal

Another significant consideration is the precious metal used for the ring. The most popular choices are platinum and 18ct white, yellow or rose gold. The key differences between the metals are durability, maintenance and colour.

5. Finishing Touches

Additional diamonds along the band are a popular choice however, there are many other options to choose from. Changing the band profile, adding millgrain detailing or custom engraving a sentimental date are a few finishing touches that make your design truly bespoke.


Our workshop creates a 3D model of your design for you to review.  The 3D model is made to scale and is true representation of the metal component of your ring. We can place the central diamond in the model and you try it on and make any slight adjustments prior to production.

7. Crafting the Ring

Our experienced team of jewellers and diamond setters work on creating your bespoke vision. This process that can take 4-6 weeks to complete. Our team of experts will keep you updated throughout the process and can answer any questions you may have.

8. The Presentation

The completed engagement ring is placed in a beautiful Fairfax & Roberts mahogany box. We also provide a Fairfax & Roberts pouch to help keep the ring safe and disguise it on proposal day.

A 3D wax print can also be made available during the feedback stage, to help you visualise your design and help it come to life.
