Make your Proposal unforgettable

"I am so grateful for the experience that I had with Morgan & Co. My fiancé proposed to me with a beautiful diamond that Morgan and Laura assisted him in choosing. I was then able to design the engagement ring and wedding band of my dreams under the supervision of a thoughtful, understanding and professional team. They not only look beautiful, but also fit my hand and personality. Thank you ladies, you made me feel so special and welcome throughout the whole process.”

"Best in the business! My fiancé and I cannot thank Morgan & co enough for the extremely professional and personal experience we received when purchasing my phenomenal radiant engagement ring. I get compliments everyday about the style, shape & shine of my stunning ring. Morgan & Co made our experience even more incredible than we could have ever imagined and we will be forever grateful for the service we received."

"I could not be happier with the service Morgan and Laura provided, not to mention my beautiful ring! The genuine care they both put into helping me pick something perfect made the experience all the more memorable. My partner and I walked away with a much greater understanding of the whole process, feeling confident we made the best decision trusting Morgan & Co to design and create my bespoke piece."

Engagement Ring FAQs

How do I design a custom engagement ring at Morgan & Co?

Designing a custom engagement ring involves several steps. First, you can book a free consultation to discuss your ideas, preferences, and budget with us. We will guide you through selecting the perfect diamond or gemstone, choosing a metal for the band, and deciding on a design style. We will then create sketches or 3D models for your approval before crafting your custom engagement ring.

How do I pick an engagement ring?

When picking an engagement ring, consider your partner’s style, the type of metal they prefer, and the shape and quality of the diamond or gemstone. It's important to set a budget and educate yourself on the 4 Cs of diamonds: cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. You can book a free consultation with us to try on different styles. For men ready to propose, we can lend you a stunt ring to propose with, and you and your partner can come in together to design her dream engagement ring.

What factors should I consider when choosing an engagement ring?

When choosing an engagement ring, consider the 4 Cs of diamonds (cut, colour, clarity and carat weight), the metal type (such as platinum, yellow gold or white gold), the ring style (solitaire, halo, vintage, etc.) and your budget. Also, consider your partner’s lifestyle and personal taste to ensure their custom engagement ring suits them perfectly. Not sure where to start? Book a free consultation, and we are here to walk you through the process.

What are the most popular engagement ring styles?

Popular engagement ring styles include solitaire, halo, three-stone, vintage and pavé settings. Each style offers a unique look, from the classic simplicity of a solitaire to the intricate details of vintage designs. In our Buderim studio, we have a range of engagement ring styles for you to view and try on.

How do I choose the right diamond for an engagement ring?

Choosing the right diamond involves considering the 4 Cs: cut (how well the diamond is shaped), colour (the lack of colour in the diamond), clarity (how free the diamond is from imperfections) and carat weight (the size of the diamond). Balance these factors based on what is most important to you and your budget. During your free consultation, we will work with you to understand what’s important to you and how we can design a custom engagement ring within your price point.

What is a lab-grown diamond?

A lab-grown diamond, also known as a cultured diamond, is a diamond created in a controlled environment using advanced technological processes that replicate the natural conditions under which diamonds form in the earth's mantle. These diamonds have the same chemical, physical and optical properties as natural diamonds but are produced in a laboratory rather than mined from the earth. Lab-grown diamonds offer ethical sourcing, being conflict-free and produced with transparency. They also have a lower environmental impact and can be more cost-effective, providing consumers with an eco-friendly and socially responsible alternative to mined diamonds.

Are lab-grown diamonds real?

Yes, lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds. They have the same chemical composition, crystal structure, hardness and brilliance as natural diamonds. The primary difference is their origin: natural diamonds are formed deep within the earth over millions of years, while lab-grown diamonds are created in a matter of weeks or months in a controlled laboratory environment.

Can you create my custom engagement ring with a natural diamond?

Yes, absolutely. We work with both lab-grown diamonds and natural diamonds. It comes down to your personal preference and considers your ethical standpoint and budget. Book a consult with us.

How long does it take to create a custom engagement ring?

The time frame for creating a custom engagement ring can vary but typically takes between 4 to 8 weeks. This includes the initial consultation with us, design approval and the crafting of your engagement ring. All our custom engagement rings are Australian made, which enables us the ability to fast track your order, should you require it for a certain date.

How much should I spend on an engagement ring?

The amount you should spend on an engagement ring is personal and varies based on your financial situation. Traditionally, it has been suggested to spend about two to three months’ salary, but it’s more important to choose a ring that is meaningful and within your budget. During your consultation, we will ask you questions to uncover what’s important to you, whether that be size, clarity, cut or something else! Being a custom service, we have the ability to work to your budget.

What is the average cost of a custom engagement ring?

The average cost of a custom engagement ring can range significantly based on the design, materials and diamonds chosen. Typically, custom engagement rings start at around $2,000 and can go upwards of $10,000 or more.

Can I propose with a stunt ring, and then bring my partner in to design her own ring?

Yes, we love this approach. Proposing with a stunt ring and then involving your partner in the design process of their actual engagement ring is a special experience for both of you. At Morgan and Co, we can lend you a stunt ring to propose with. Please book a free consultation to discuss this.

What are the latest trends in engagement ring designs?

At Morgan & Co, we love to create timeless engagement rings. When you book a free consultation, we can show you all the classic diamond shapes, and also the more unique diamond shapes like oval or pear, vintage-inspired settings, and mixed metal bands. We can also personalise your engagement ring with an engraving, such as initials or a date or a hidden gemstone in the band.

Can I use my own diamonds or gemstones in a custom engagement ring?

Yes, we can incorporate your own diamonds or gemstones into a custom engagement ring. This can add sentimental value and potentially reduce the overall cost.

What is the difference between a custom and a ready-made engagement ring?

A custom engagement ring is designed specifically for you, allowing for personalised elements and unique designs. A ready-made engagement ring is pre-designed and available for immediate purchase. Custom rings offer more individuality, while ready-made rings are convenient for quick decisions. At Morgan & Co, we specialise in custom engagement rings designed to suit the wearer.

How can I ensure the quality of a custom engagement ring?

You can ensure the quality of your custom engagement ring by choosing a reputable jeweller - please have a read through our Google Reviews to hear from our customers. And ask us for detailed information on the materials and diamonds that we use. You can also request certificates of authenticity for diamonds or gemstones. We’re here to answer any questions you have! Each piece we create is Australian made and designed and we offer a lifetime manufacturing warranty on band and setting.

What metals are best for engagement rings?

Popular metals for engagement rings include platinum, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. Platinum is durable and hypoallergenic, while gold comes in various colours and carats, allowing for more design options. We specialise in gold rings, but as a bespoke jeweller we can source and work with all materials. We specialise in gold rings and platinum rings. The gold we use is recycled gold.

Can I get a custom engagement ring with a coloured gemstone?

Yes, you can choose a coloured gemstone for a custom engagement ring. Options include sapphires, rubies, emeralds, parti sapphires, tourmalines and more. Coloured gemstones can add a unique and personal touch to your engagement ring.

What is the process of creating a custom engagement ring?

Our process starts with a free consultation to discuss your ideas and budget. Your engagement ring setting is designed specifically for your individually selected diamond or gemstone. Then, we will create sketches or 3D models of your chosen design. Once approved, our jeweller crafts your engagement ring, which involves sourcing materials, setting the stones and finishing the piece.
