Man Makes Engagement Ring To Propose To His Girlfriend

Would you love a store-bought professionally made diamond ring or handmade ring your significant other created as a surprise? One man has shared his story about making an engagement ring for his girlfriend while she was in school. Previously having some experience with metal works afforded him a tool kit, which he replenished with materials he didn’t have and metals and stone for the ring, which totaled at $300.

One Couple’s Handmade Engagement Ring

Ring moneyshot

After a few practice drafts he borrowed his girlfriend favorite ring to measure the right size and used the sterling silver stock to create a band for his engagement ring. He had a choice between a 4 and 6 prong stone setting and ended up choosing the white gold 6 prong setting for a .5-carat Moissanite stone that is clearer than diamond but could easily be mistaken for a sapphire. The stone was set at the jeweler’s and given a rhodium dip to prolong silver shine and marry the white gold and sterling silver for a uniform look.
