Reasons to Choose Custom Rings

Custom rings have many reasons to be chosen.

The days of limited options for moissanite engagement rings in Canada are a thing of the past. The way we design our engagement rings has evolved in recent years, and people have increasingly become more creative. Custom engagement rings have changed the game – for the better. They are an excellent way to show your partner how much you care for them if you are planning on proposing. They are original and you can add special meaning to them with the design elements you choose to include in the rings design.

Creating a custom engagement ring is now possible in any way that you wish. You choose the precious metals, the center stone, ring setting, and other design elements to give your bride-to-be the perfect engagement ring – A ring that they could never say no to!

Custom engagement rings are popular for several reasons, but one of the most important is that you can design it exactly the way you want. While there are many pre-made designs out there, sometimes they just don’t feel right.

By going the custom route, you can choose all components, from the metal to the design of the setting to the shape of the side stones and the center stone. You get to decide the thickness and shape of your band, as well as all other design features, without having it dictated for you through a ready-made engagement ring.

What if you both want to be a part of the engagement ring creation process?

Many couples nowadays want to share in the process of creating engagement rings together, but they often want to keep part of the process as a surprise. Going the custom way allows you to both be involved with the designer, giving all your thoughts and feedback, but perhaps letting some bits and pieces be a surprise in the end. On the other hand, if you were to go the traditional route of buying a pre-made ring, it’s hard for you both to be involved while still maintaining some level of surprise.

Creativity Is Possible

As part of the custom process, your story and personality as a couple will shine through your engagement ring. At AGI Design Canada, we learn a bit about your story and what you want. We are then able to bring some of those aspects into your ring, creating something truly special.

Having been intimately involved in the creation of your ring, you can incorporate elements that represent your relationship. There are many ways to do this:

*Add an engraving of a quote, word or symbol that means something to the both of you

*Consider using a treasured gemstone from an old piece of jewelry as a setting for your ring

*Pick a gemstone that holds meaning for you both

*Add something to the ring from a special moment in your lives.

*Choose a unique design

There are many ways to bring your ring alive as a representation of your love. And with a bespoke experience, you can get as creative as you want.

Budgeting Wisely

Budgeting is an essential aspect of buying a moissanite engagement ring. It can be limited when shopping for ready-made rings as the retailer only has a limited number of choices. There may not be as many rings to choose from depending on your budget.

It is possible to decide on which aspect of the ring you wish to spend the most money on and which part you would like to save. This allows you to get the most out of your budget, while also creating something specific to you as a couple.

Additionally, when you're creating something customized, you're often able to use your own materials. Perhaps you have a family heirloom or gemstone you want included in the ring design. This way, you may be able to keep your costs down while still getting a fabulous ring.

You can design your custom engagement ring online

Many people are surprised to find out that AGI Design conducts the majority of its design consultations online. Of course, you can come in and see us if you prefer. The online process works this way.


Each custom design begins with a design idea. Whether it's a simple sketch on paper, an image of a design or a concept in your mind, we can make it happen. You can combine a few designs together or use a design seen elsewhere and modify it to create your unique jewelry. Bring or e-mail your drawings or images and we will work together with you to come up with a design that is exclusively for you. When gemstones and metal quality is determined we will be able to provide you with an estimate for the finished product. In most cases we can work within your budget by manipulating the grade of material.


After the down payment is received we will use Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology to create images to show details of your custom jewellery, so you can visualize what the end results will be. During this step, you can still make changes or modifications to your design. Having the 3D model allows us to visually confirm any changes made at this point.


Once you have approved the CAD, we can create an in-house wax model of your jewelry using one of our advanced 3D printers, so you can actually see, touch and try on a prototype version of your item before it is fabricated. This prototype is full-scale and will show you the exact detail and dimensions of your project.


Once the wax process is complete, the new metal jewelry casting is put through several final steps such as the assembling, setting of stones, polishing or hand engraving. Each piece of jewelry is thoroughly inspected before delivery to ensure our customers receive the best quality achievable.
