If you are choosing to design your own ring you should know a thing or two before embarking on this journey. You should educate yourself on the type of stone you want for your ring. Do you want diamonds? If so, learn as much about the different types of diamonds and cuts before you start designing. If you choose a different stone, start reading up on the specific stone of choice. The more you know about the stone, the better and nicer of a ring you can design yourself. Besides the type of stone you will want to educate yourself on the types of metals available for your ring. You can choose almost any type of metal for your ring, find out information about each and which one suits you best. You may also want to try to find out how the stone of your choice fits with the metal you wish to use. The two should compliment each other. These are just two important pieces of information you should definitely know when designing your own ring. Talk to your jeweler or look online for what other pieces of information you should have before making a final decision.
