Choosing the Perfect Engagement Ring

It’s an exciting time. Choosing the ideal engagement ring to symbolise your love and commitment is a fun-filled and positive experience. I aim to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to create a unique ring that suits their own personality and style.

Some couples know what they want and I deliver unmatched design skills and craftsmanship to deliver the ring of their dreams. Others will want to explore more options, alternative designs and materials. Whatever your approach, I’ll make the whole process straightforward and enjoyable.

I’ve been designing and delivering on people’s dreams for their unique engagement ring since 2002. Get in touch and tell me what you’d like, the images of recent engagement rings below might inspire you.


The Process – FAQ’s

It can be a daunting and a new experience to commission a piece of jewellery. Aoife has been doing this for over 15 years and will gladly answer any questions you might have.

How does the process begin?

A simple email or phone call outlining your thoughts, ideas, budget. It doesn’t need to be very long. Or book yourself in for a consultation here.

Can we visit you to see your work first?

Yes of course, although it’s not necessary. It can be a nice way to work out more details. This could also be the ideal time to look at diamonds or coloured stones that would be suitable for your ring. You can arrange your visit here.

What about finger size?

We can measure when you visit or, if you’re planning a surprise, I have a few tricks up my sleeve!

How long does it typically take to a ring designed?

Usually, you should allow about 8 weeks. If you’re looking for a very specific coloured stone or diamond, it might take longer to source the perfect stone via my network of suppliers. Often there can be some back and forth on the design to ensure everyone is happy. This is the time to really consider what you want for your ring. It can be the most fun part of the whole experience – apart from seeing the finished product!

Do you offer a nationwide service?

Yes I do, I also design and make jewellery for international clients. Many clients like to do this online, and this can work really well.
I’m available for in person meetings in my workshop in Skibbereen.

What is a typical price-range?

Typically for a diamond ring the price would start from around €2500 – €3000, after that, it’s up to you.

What about Promise Rings?

I have a small selection or silver & CZ rings if you would like to propose with a ring, and design the actual ring together after.
