Custom Engagement Rings

Our customizable engagement rings offer a personalized experience where we combine old world craftsmanship with antique diamonds, creating pieces that carry a sense of history.


Contact us with your ideas, needs, and the budget you have in mind.

Initially you'll need to decide what setting you would like, you can create a custom ring from our Erstwhile collection, recreate a vintage engagement ring or explore our extensive archive of sold vintage rings.

We work with clients around the world, virtually, or in-person in our NYC showroom. Some of our clients like to make a trip out of visiting us here in midtown Manhattan, but it's by no means necessary. We've worked with hundreds of couples through virtual meetings and email only. Based on your initial preferences we will be able to provide you with pricing and a timeline. If you're not sure of your wants when you initially get in touch not to worry our designers and antique diamond experts can help you figure out your needs.

Once you decide on your ring and budget we will begin the diamond hunt!

Our team has a deep knowledge of antique diamonds and access to some of the most rare beautiful gems. You will have the opportunity to select from a curated selection of diamonds based on your criteria. You will be sent images and videos via email or you can visit our NYC showroom for a sit down discussion and viewing of the diamonds. This is your opportunity to tweak your desires and get a bit of a lesson on antique gems.

Already have a stone? We offer a Set Your Stone service. Contact us to learn more!

After you finalize your diamond selection and the final design of your setting our team of old world jewelers will create your one-of-a-kind custom handcrafted ring.

Custom engagement rings take about 4-6 weeks to create once you choose your stones and put down a 50% deposit. The timeline really depends on the complexity of the setting and, most importantly, how long it takes to finalize the diamond selection.
