Custom diamond engagement rings are an excellent way to break away from the more traditional looking rings that have been around for many decades. Although the diamond solitaire is undoubtedly one of the top choices in terms of engagement rings, there is a growing trend of couples looking for something different and unique from all of the rest, leading them to various combinations and designs for custom round bezel engagement rings.

The experienced jewelers will offer concrete suggestions according to the customer’s wants and needs and help develop ideas to get the perfect custom diamond engagement rings that will last in beauty and style throughout the ages.
To get a better idea of the different options that are available for custom diamond engagement rings, consider some of the following tips and suggestions:
Mix and Match Gemstones
There are hundreds of different gemstones that are readily available for customizing beautiful and unique engagement rings. Different gemstone combinations can be arranged to get a particular look in a ring where the diamonds either stand out on the ring or create a beautiful subtle look.
A monochrome arrangement of gemstone offers a very subtle look in the same color range but with different shades. Choose some colors that are softer along with others that are brighter. For example, a blue monochrome ring can have any combination of Turquoise, Opal, Blue Topaz, or Aquamarine.
Black and White
A black and white combination works beautifully with platinum, silver, or white gold rings. The lovely variety of dark stones with light ones perfectly enhance a silver band. Some common black stones are Onyx, Black Spinel, Obsidian, and Hematite. Common white stones that would perfectly compliment the black ones are Moonstone, Opal, or Pearl.
Complimentary gemstones are certainly a fun and unique way to design custom gemstone engagement rings. They offer a vibrant look that will surely catch many people’s eyes. The most common combinations are violet with yellow (amethyst and citrine), red with green (ruby and emerald), or blue with orange (lapis lazuli and coral). Still, any colors that are found opposite each other on the color wheel will work beautifully.
Like monochrome gemstone combinations, gemstones with colors close to each other on the color wheel are used together. Consider blues with violets, blues with greens, reds with oranges, or yellows with oranges.
These types of combinations can give an engagement ring a hot fiery look or have a cold, relaxing feel to it. This is a prevalent choice for engagement rings that perfectly match the engagement or wedding season. Warmer colors are used for summer, soft and warm or cool pastels for spring, cool hues for winter, and warm earthy tones for autumn.
With so many gemstone combinations to choose from, it’s important to closely consider the type of look and feel desired for the rings and look at the various options available according to the budget.
