Even if you are considering a Solitaire ring, August Bespoke won’t let you get down on one knee with a run-off-the-mill design in your hands. Instead, they will craft the perfect ring based on you and your bae’s fashion & lifestyle choices.
Every diamond is hand-picked and every ring designed from the ground up, so you can be certain you’re getting something one-of-a-kind and not from a storeroom. In addition to the traditional round diamond, they specialise in fancy cut diamonds such as Emerald or Oval cut diamonds as well as other coloured gemstones like Sapphire and Morganite.
There’s also no limit to how you want to customise your ring, whether it’s an intricate design or an outlandish request like a colour-changing gemstone.

The session will run you through picking the right gemstone shape, the price of diamonds in detail, and a display of various ring designs. There’s also a Q&A session at the end for any inquisitive minds who still have questions.
