5-Step Process FAQs

How does purchasing a Custom Engagement Ring from BlumLux work?

BlumLux is your complete online jewelry experience! You don’t have to worry about the hassle of going into a store or pushy salespeople.

The ENTIRE TRANSACTION for your engagement ring purchase can be done from your desktop or mobile device.

Once you create an account, you’ll be able to choose from an already-existing ring design or you can create your own custom engagement ring.

How do I choose a custom engagement ring?

If you select “create your own,” you will be asked a few simple questions so Master Jeweler Nick Blum is able to design the perfect ring for your partner. The questions will give him an idea of your diamond budget and design style.

You will be asked to pay for whatever band you select at that time. From there, BlumLux will reach out to you within 48 hours with a hand-picked selection of three diamonds that fit within your budget and desired ring setting.

You will then have 72 hours to make your selection and final payment on the engagement ring.

If the selections are not what you’re looking for, you can request more options or cancel the order. A $100 fee will be deducted from your initial order with this option.

Once you’ve made the final payment, it will take 2-4 weeks for BlumLux to build your ring and ship it directly to you.

WE OFFER FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS.

Ring Setting FAQs

What settings do you offer?

BlumLux offers several distinct diamond cuts for your custom-band:

  • Round
  • Princess
  • Cushion
  • Radiant
  • Pear
  • Oval
  • Marquise
  • Emerald
  • Asscher

Alongside this list, several of our pre-created engagement rings have special cuts. You can order them directly from the BlumLux website.

What kind of metals do you use for the bands?

You can select from bands made of 14K and 18K white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, or platinum. It is important to note that platinum is stronger and more durable than white or rose gold and does not lose its luster over time. Platinum is also more expensive than white gold, rose gold, and yellow gold. 

Diamond Selection FAQs

How much should I spend on the ring?

The industry has pushed the idea of a ring costing 2-3 months’ salary. While this can be a starting point, we do not recommend starting your marriage off with a bunch of debt. It’s important to establish a sensible and manageable budget for your ring.

No matter what you plan to spend on the ring, BlumLux will work within your budget while providing you with several stunning options. Your overall satisfaction is our top priority.

I have a picture of the ring I want. Can you create it?

Yes! Creating custom jewelry for clients is one of my specialties. To get a quote on a custom engagement ring, please send a photo of the ring along with a description to info@blumlux.com. Our team will provide a price quote within 24 hours whenever possible. We will also add our signature BlumLux touch by placing two rubies on the inside band the ring.

Does BlumLux offer ring appraisals?

Yes, we can assist with ring appraisals. For $120, we will have our certified appraiser thoroughly examine your ring and provide an official appraisal document for your records. You can use this appraisal to purchase insurance for your ring.

I don’t know my partner’s ring size. How do I figure out what it is while keeping it a secret?

Don’t despair! Here are a few ideas to help you learn your partner’s ring size (without ruining the surprise).

  • Ask your partner’s friends or family if they know their ring size.
  • Sneak a peek into their jewelry box and borrow one of their rings. Then, download our BlumLux sizing guide and use it to find the correct size.
  • If you want to find out the ring size directly from the source, ask in a very subtle, smooth way. We suggest pretending that you are going to buy a ring for your mom/sister/aunt/niece etc. whose hands are similar in size. Casually ask what their ring size is for reference.
What if the ring doesn’t fit after I buy it?

If the ring doesn’t fit correctly after purchasing, you have two options:

  1. BlumLux offers free ring resizing through the first year after purchase. Just send the ring back to us and we’ll take care of it!
  2. Contact your local jeweler. Resizing is generally inexpensive and quick.
How often should the ring be cleaned?

We follow the industry standard at BlumLux and recommend a ring cleaning twice a year. Keep in mind that white gold rings are rhodium-plated and should be replated every six months.

Here are two more ring cleaning tips in the meantime:

  1. Tell your partner to leave their ring ON when they wash their hands. Warm water and mild soap can do wonders for diamond rings!
  2. Use the tried-and-true method of scrubbing the ring with soap or toothpaste using an old toothbrush.
Oh, no! A tiny diamond fell off the ring! What should I do?

Don’t panic - this sort of thing happens from time to time! If it does, you have two options. You can visit a local jeweler (repairs like this run between $25-$40), or you can send it back to BlumLux and replace it for no additional cost.
