There are many ways to create your own ring

Most often, people must engage in an extended endeavor with their local jeweller. Consulting only takes place physically and you don’t always have the time to make multiple trips to discuss your engagement ring design.


Using new technology

There is a special feeling about owning a custom made engagement ring. It has a sense of uniqueness that we all want, but at what cost? The chances of your ring being 100% what you wanted might not be as great as you would think it should be. There are only “so much” a goldsmith can do and often requires their own initiative to match their own particular skill set. However, when you create your own engagement ring online, you are guaranteed to get exactly what you envisioned.

Accurately bring your custom engagement ring to life

CAD (computer aided design) combined with 3d print technology has changed the entire industry. By combining these technologies, you can benefit from several advantages. Speed, time, accuracy and cost savings are the most prominent. By creating your engagement ring online, you can have a unique, quality masterpiece created to your heart’s desire.

Personal touch

Technology can only go so far. Your engagement ring will be meticulously assembled and polished by an expert craftsman to the finest detail. This ensures that the quality of your ring surpasses any mass-produced jewellery standards. Before you receive your ring, SJ Gems will further inspect your ring to make sure that it is perfect before backing it with a lifetime guarantee.


Typically, your custom piece will be in your hands 3-4 weeks after we’ve finalized your design. However, because each project is different, the time it takes to complete your project may vary. Here’s a rough breakdown of how long each part of our process takes:

Design: As long as it takes for you to tell us it’s perfect

When it comes to creating your design, we’ll work at your pace. Some customers only need to exchange a few messages with us – we’ll often be ready to make their piece within a few days. Others may prefer to design and iterate with us over many weeks, or even months.

Production: Approximately 3 weeks

Once you’ve approved a design, we’ll manufacture your piece, finishing all the details by hand. When it’s ready, we’ll send you photographs of your finished piece so you can give us your seal of approval before we deliver it to you.


There’s no charge to discuss your design and price options. We request a deposit prior to producing 3D renderings of your custom design engagement ring online and that deposit goes toward the final cost of producing your piece.

We stand behind our jewellery 100% and we offer a comprehensive set of warranties so that you can purchase with confidence.

Lifetime Manufacturer Warranty

We guarantee our workmanship and take responsibility for any structural defects.

Certificate of Authenticity

All the materials (metals, diamonds, and gemstones) we sell are authentic and properly specified in your insurance certificate.

Accent Stone Loss Warranty

If any small accent gems (<R1000 value) break or fall out of their settings in the first year after we create the ring, we’ll replace them free of charge.

How much does it cost to have a custom ring made?

Unlike other jewellery stores, each piece of jewellerry we produce starts off as a brand-new idea. Because of that, it’s difficult to know how much a piece is going to cost without knowing a bit more about the idea you have in mind. The easiest way to get an estimate on your piece is to fill in our easy form, send us some pictures and we will give you an obligation free estimation

Can you design your own ring?

We can make any design you have in mind. If there are technical impossibilities, we will guide you to an appropriate solution. Technology has changed considerably in the last decade. Using computer aided design, you can have an exact modal of what your masterpiece is going to look like.

Is custom made jewellery more expensive?

Keeping our overheads low by selling online means we're able to produce heirloom-quality jewellery for prices that are comparable to what you'd pay for similar quality pieces off the shelf. However, custom designing and making every piece one-of-a-kind at such high quality means we can’t offer jewellery at the prices of fast fashion brands like American Swiss or Galaxy.

Can we copy designer jewellers?

Yes! There are many jewellery styles that are universal. Vintage looks, halo’s and solitaire settings are all universal.
