Perhaps you're picky about your jewelry. Or maybe you and your other half want a one-of-a-kind engagement ring that's as unique as your love. Whatever the reason, don't be intimidated by the idea of designing your own ring.

Consider this your crash course in engagement ring design, and you'll be custom-crafting your ring before you can say "I do."
