Design Principles

We at Durham Rose want to increase your education on ring knowledge.

In doing so, when you are ready to design your forever piece, you can do so feeling empowered and ready to let your creative vision take centre stage.

The ‘anatomy’ of a ring refers to its many different and variable characteristics. Not all will be applicable to your design, but by giving you the knowledge, you will then be able to critically analyse ring components. See the visual breakdown of components here.

Knowing the finger size before the design process begins is crucial as sometimes designs can be restricted by how small or large the finger size is. Knowing as much information as possible going into the design process helps creating your dream ring run smoothly. Double check your measurements with us in our ring sizing chart here.

Your forever piece, set in style. The beauty of bespoke is that complete creative vision is given to you. To empower you further in designing your creative masterpiece and understanding of ring education with us, learn all about prong, claw, bezel, crown, decorative and illusion setting styles in our in depth guide to stone setting styles here.
