Sea Glass Engagement Rings
You are ready to pop the big question. You know her style doesn’t fit the norm and would like a ring that is beyond anything offered in a jewelry store. You’re in the right place. I specialize in custom sea glass engagement rings made to last and capture your love of the sea. I promise that working together to design a ring unlike any other will be a fun and unique experience. Each ring is designed and made especially for the recipient, keeping in mind her personality and style. You and I will make sure that the ring is all about her and she will surely say YES!
How it works
It all starts with filling out the form below. Let me know your story. The more information you can give me, the more inspired I will be. Tell me how you met, the things you like to do together, the shows you watch, or the beaches you have visited. Most important tell me why you have chosen to incorporate sea glass into her ring. Once I get a sense of you both, the design process can begin. Let me know the ideas you have in mind for the ring: shape, color, and size of sea glass. Your ideas are helpful, even if you think they are outlandish or impossible. Those are the types of ideas which can result in awesome designs. If you don’t know where to begin, I can get you started with some sample designs and we can work from them.
Next, I will find sea glass pieces from my collection or use glass that you are providing to draw sketches of the selected design. I will make changes and create revision design drawings if necessary. Once a final design is agreed on, I will give you a written quote. At this time, 50% of the quoted price will be due through an online payment process. After your down payment is made, the required one month construction period will begin. When the ring is completed, I will send a series of pictures of the ring for your approval and your remaining balance will be due. Following the receipt of your final payment, I will fully insure the shipment of your ring to you. Then it is all up to you to pop the question.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Can a diamond be incorporated into the design?
Yes, diamonds and sea glass look beautiful together. I can provide the diamond for you with your specifications. You are also welcome to provide the diamond for your ring, it can be a diamond that you purchase and send to me or a family heirloom could also be an option.
- What metal do you use?
All of my designs are made in sterling silver. If a diamond is incorporated and mounted with prongs, the prongs will be in white gold to provide the best stability. At this time, I am not offering rings made in other metals.
- What is the cost of an engagement ring?
Pricing for a custom sea glass engagement ring starts at $350. Final pricing is determined by many factors: design time, color, silver used, design complexity, incorporation of a diamond and multiple pieces. An exact quote for your ring will be given once a final design is agreed upon and before construction.
- What can I do, if I don’t know my girlfriend’s ring size?
I will need this information. So you don’t have to ruin the surprise, it is best to ask someone who might know or be able to discreetly find out. It is better to be a little on the larger side so it can be sized down, if necessary. If the size does need to be changed please see the next question.
- Can the size of the ring be changed?
Yes, however changing the size requires a laser welder because of the delicacy of the sea glass. Unfortunately, I don’t have one of these fancy machines in my studio, but I do know a trusted jeweler who does. I can have your ring size changed for you, if necessary, at an additional cost. Another option is for me to help you find a jeweler near you who could do the work. Depending on the jeweler, you may be charged $20 – $50 for this service.
- How long does the process take?
The entire process can usually be completed within 5-6 weeks. A lot of this depends on how quickly decisions are made by you. Once a design is approved, all of the ring’s components are on-hand, and your down payment is made, I require one month for construction of the ring . If you are in need of a faster timeline, please let me know; I can usually accommodate your request.
- Do you offer financing?
Yes. Through PayPal’s Bill Me Later financing, you can process your payment through them and receive 6 months to pay with no interest and no payments. Payments for engagement rings are normally, 50% before construction and 50% before shipment. I am always flexible when it comes to payments, if you would like to discuss other options please don’t hesitate to ask.
The ring is beautiful and I cant wait to give it to her!!! Thank you so much and I will be using you in the future for jewelry and recommending you to my friends.
Thank you so much for the ring. Everything went great. I popped the big question at our favorite beach spot as the sun was setting in the ocean. It was beautiful. She absolutely loves the ring!! You did a fantastic job. I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am for all your expertise. It was a magical day that both of us will never forget.
Meg, I am so happy with my engagement ring. I haven’t been able to stop staring at it and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I am an avid beach comber and I love sea glass. I told Rick right from the start that I prefer sea glass to diamonds (and he’s a very good listener). Thank you for your beautiful creation. It is so ‘me.’
Thanks so much for making the sea glass engagement ring for Susan, she loved it (and said ‘yes’). The whole process of deciding on the design, getting a diamond online, shipping it to you, you making the ring and sending it back was a lot easier and took less time than I thought it would take. The ring is spectacular. We really feel the it has a unique quality that you can’t find in a store. We found the sea glass on Grand Cayman during Susan’s daughter’s wedding cruise so it will always have a special meaning to us. Thanks so much for being a part of this special time in our lives.
