5 Design Ideas for Custom Men's Engagement Rings

five design ideas for custom mens engagement rings

Are you having trouble finding an engagement ring you love? There aren’t as many options out there for engagement rings for men, but that doesn’t mean you should settle for a ring that’s not exactly what you want—many jewelers now give you the option of creating a custom design. Where do you begin when creating your own ring? Here are some design ideas for custom men’s engagement rings that you should use as inspiration:

#1: Bezel Settings

The majority of women’s engagement rings feature diamonds in prong settings, however a bezel setting offers a less flashy, more masculine look for a man’s diamond ring. In a bezel setting, metal completely surrounds the diamonds to provide it with extra protection and hold it securely in place. This setting is ideal for every type of man, especially those who live fairly active lifestyles and don’t want to worry about a diamond on their ring coming loose.

#2: Detailed Bands

Men have the opportunity to be creative when designing the band on their custom engagement ring. Instead of choosing a simple, plain metal band, men should consider designing a band with more detail that fits their personality or style. Do you love nature? If so, find a way to incorporate your love for the outdoors into your band. Use this Narcissus Solitaire Management Ring with a bold laurel leaf crown around the band for inspiration. This is a great way to add personality and to ensure your ring stands out from the others.

#3: Yellow Gold

Many men stick to white gold or platinum for their engagement bands, but if you want to try something a bit more nontraditional, design a ring with a yellow gold band instead. Yellow gold can be worn by anyone, but it’s especially beautiful on men with olive on dark skin tones. In addition to its striking appearance, yellow gold is also one of the most malleable metals used for engagement rings. This means it can easily be resized in the future if necessary.

#4: Cut Outs

How can you make your custom engagement ring truly unique? Add a cut out design to the band. This trend has been increasing in popularity within the jewelry industry this year, and it’s not hard to see why. A delicate cut out design is unexpected and edgy, so it’s perfect for trendsetting men. If you don’t want the cut out to distract from the rest of the ring, consider putting it on the side of the band so you can only see it from certain angles. Admirers will be able to catch a glimpse of the cut out when you move your hand in certain ways, which will leave them wanting to see more of your stylish ring.

#5: More Diamonds

Men tend to choose understated engagement rings, so they often wear rings with a solitaire center diamond. But, if you’re one of the many men that want a design that is a bit bolder, design a custom ring with more than one diamond! There are several ways that you can achieve this look. First, you can place several larger diamonds in a channel setting in the center of your band, like with this Perseus Diamond Management Ring. Another option would be to place a large center stone with smaller, pave set diamonds. Either way, a ring with more diamonds will be sure to sparkle and shine on your finger. Designing a custom engagement ring is your chance to create a ring that represents you, so don’t be afraid to push the boundaries and be creative!
