Lilia Nash's Bespoke Engagement Ring Design Guide

When designing your own engagement ring the choices might seem endless and confusing, that is why Lilia has put together this bespoke engagement ring design guide to help you through the process.

To design your own engagement ring there 4 main choices for you to make.

  • Ring design - what style of ring do you like, solitaire, Art Deco, Trilogy?
  • Ring setting - do you like a fluted, flower or flush setting?
  • The gemstone - do you love a classic diamond, a stunning sapphire or a more unusual engagement ring gemstone?
  • Metal and finish - from recycled 18ct yellow gold to platinum in a polished, satin or one of Lilia's signature finishes.

Ring Design

From Lilia's Art Nouveau ring to the classic simplicity of a solitaire engagement ring here are Lilia's signature ring designs.

When you browse the designs please bear in mind that not all designs suit all sizes of stone.

Lilia's flower setting is delicately hand carved and suitable to stones over 5mm in diameter. The straight wall setting is a contemporary design where the stone is surrounded by straight sides of your chosen metal, and the top can be split to allow extra light to enter the stone. Lilia's bud setting is perfect for smaller stones.
