Designing his/her engagement ring.


When it comes to picking an engagement ring you want it to be unique. You want it to feel special. Often someone embarks on a journey of choosing an engagement ring for their partner by taking a trip into Glasgow ... or the nearest big city. An individual (usually accompanied by someone they trust) makes a decision based on what they THINK their partner will like. 

Given the enormity of the event due to happen the 'receiver' is often not bothered by the actual ring ... but more taken aback by the Proposal. Which is lovely. We love a good proposal.

However, at Hodgkinsons we believe in The Hodgkinson Experience! Over the years we have had many generations of couples visit our showroom in Clarkston to talk with our Engagement Ring Experts. That 'surprise proposal' is a fantastic event and the more of them the merrier, but sometimes the 'bride (or groom) to be' often want to design their very own engagement ring.

It can be quite difficult picking a ring for your loved one : )

We often find couples coming to us to design an engagement ring (after the proposal) that will go with their planned wedding band. It's often a great opportunity for the bride/groom to be to get to design the engagement ring of their dreams. 
(The original was lovely - they just want to 'improve' it a bit)

The design process can be a really enjoyable experience for both parties. It can be creative and symbolic. It also helps to create YOUR story. Something for you to talk about in years to come... maybe when you are considering designing your first Eternity Ring even : )

So if you are considering proposing to your loved one over the coming months then you should maybe consider popping into our Clarkston showroom to have a chat with one of our Wedding Experts. Don't dive in... take a breath.

But don't NOT do it. Ask her/him. I'm pretty sure they'll say YES! : )

With regards to designing that Engagement Ring though ... The only thing that is stopping you (and your partner) ... is your imagination.

Congratulations on deciding to take the 1st step on your next big adventure... and we hope to see you at Hodgkinsons soon.
