Want the wedding ring of your dreams? Lee Hwa Jewellery lets you customise your own bands with colour, width, diamond formation, engravings and more
So you have both taken the plunge, and are now putting a ring on this exciting new milestone. Woot! A walk down the aisle is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion that definitely deserves a glittery memento (we’re talking about some serious bling here) like no other. One such coveted master of the occasion is award-winning German jeweller, Niessing, an established international brand that has been designing and manufacturing high quality contemporary wedding rings for over 140 years, and it has just launched a new bespoke ring service at Lee Hwa Jewellery boutiques in Singapore.
Classic, contemporary or elegant – whatever your style is, you can have your dream ring in just six steps! From choosing the colour, form and texture, to engraving a special message for your partner, here’s how you can create a one-of-a-kind design that’ll last a lifetime.
How your ring sits on your finger depends on the type of curvature you choose, and it’s not as complicated as it sounds – the navette is a slender and curved design that has a light feel, the classic (a Niessing signature) features the traditional curves of a typical wedding band, while the cube has a flat and edgy finish. There are six different styles to choose from, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself mulling over your ideal shape!
2) Width and size
A bespoke piece is all about the details, and even the width of your ring matters in the overall design. Go sleek and slender for a subtle look, or wide and bold for a more distinctive style.
Niessing offers more than just the usual yellows or white golds. In fact, there is a whole spectrum of 12 different tones to choose from! Platinum or sand grey might appeal to the modern minimalist, while traditionalists may opt for a warm, ivory gold. For a truly unique design, you even have the option of an unconventional gradient, such as a pure silver-and-gold, or rose-gold-and-fine-grey combo!
You’re halfway through the basics! It’s time to put the finishing touches before moving on to embellishments like diamonds and engravings. Check out Niessing’s selection of six different textures – nature, satin, velvet, gloss, handcraft satin and handcraft gloss – and go with the one that fits both your personalities.
When it comes to drawing attention to your digits, you can never go wrong with diamonds, regardless if you decide to go with a little sparkle or a whole lotta bling. Here, you have eight different formations to consider: a simple, single round setting, an understated pattern of five diamonds, and an entire circle of stones are just some examples.
A secret message, his favourite quote or a meaningful lyric from your favourite song – nothing makes a wedding band more special than a customised engraving shared only between the both of you, and handcrafted by artisans using techniques established by Niessing for over 140 years.
Niessing Design Your Own ring service is available at Lee Hwa Jewellery boutiques in ION Orchard, VivoCity, Wisma Atria, Plaza Singapura, Suntec City, Parkway Parade, Jurong Point and Tampines Mall.
