What my customers say:

Review of Daan about his custom made engagement ring for Nadine:

Daan en Nadine met hun verlovingsring

“What if regular jewelers don't offer what you're looking for? I think my girlfriend is unique and I don't want to ask her to marry me with a standard shiny stone on a gold band. 

During the first appointment we got to work while enjoying a cup of coffee. Sandra asked the right questions about Nadine and showed me some designs for inspiration. After the appointment I received a document with the creative direction. After confirming the order, I got the design document. It showed how well she understood Nadine based on my reaction and answers. She made a test model of one of the designs, that became the 'final design' for the engagement ring!

The end result is even more beautiful than expected. It was exciting: what does Nadine think of the ring? Fortunately, this tension was quickly dispelled during the proposal. The ring fits perfectly and her expectations have been exceeded! The ring is typical Nadine with a touch of Daan. She now wears her engagement ring with great pride.verlovingsring goud met saffier

I can really recommend Sandra if you're looking for something other than the 'standard engagement ring'. The first appointment is without obligation and provides a lot of insight. If you are open to such a process, it will provide you with an unique experience and a beautiful ring!” 



Engagement ring Rob

Rob's review of his custom made engagement ring:

"When I wanted to propose to my wife, I knew I wanted a special ring for this special moment. But I had no idea what the ring was supposed to look like. My wife doesn't like lavish jewelry and is picky, this made it extra exciting.
Based on my ideas and stories, Sandra started sketching and designing rings. She listened carefully and there was one idea that really stood out: this design hit the mark!verlovingsring Rob

The result has become the unique engagement ring I had in mind and it is exactly what my wife likes! Because Sandra is creative, can listen well and has a sense of aesthetics, I would highly recommend you to have a piece of jewellery made by her." 


 Who is this for?

Custom made engagement rings are not for everyone. This is for you if you value:

  • Originality. You think the 'standard' is boring. 
  • Quality. You want that this engagement ring is pleasantly worn for a lifetime (and perhaps even passed on to the next generation ;-)
  • Service. You want clear communication and a great experience.
  • Design. You are a design lover.

This is not for you if you...

  • ...want a 'standard' engagement ring from the mainstream jeweler around the corner, there are enough 'standard' rings, I go for personal and unique. 
  • ...want to purchase an engagement ring direct out of the box. I work on commission, that means that every engagement ring is made especially for you. I do have several collections of Lasand rings that can be viewed in real life. Based on these collections, I explain the possibilities and we discuss different styles.

Who am I?

Goudsmid Rotterdam Sandra Bruil

I believe that the most beautiful piece of jewellery is a jewel that you never want to take off. It’s so precious to you that you want to wear it everyday.

I’m trained as an Industrial Designer and Goldsmith. I think of jewellery as wearable design. For me the craft of goldsmithing stands for quality, attention and originality. 

One of the reasons I became a jewellery designer is because jewellery has a lot of meaning. You wear a piece of jewellery close to you and often there is a special story attached to it. You got it from a loved one, it has a special story behind it or it symbolizes a special event in your life.

It is my mission to think about this meaning and emotional value that the jewel will have during the design phase of a custom made jewel. Who will wear it and what meaning will the jewel have for the wearer? In this way the design reinforces the meaning of the jewellery.

The custom design process is very special to me. I find it important to get to know my customers so that I can make something that perfectly suits them. It’s my challenge to go to the core of what you really want.

The biggest compliment a customer gave me was that the jewel I made for her was exactly what she was looking for and dreaming of. Even though she didn’t know what that would look like ;-)


How does it work?

Design consult & Intake

Week 1, duration1 hour

The design consultation is our first conversation. In this meeting we will discuss your wishes and you will receive advice about design, materials, styles and options. This conversation takes place in my studio in Nijmegen. In addition to the regular times, time slots are available for evenings and Saturday afternoons.

The design brief

Week 2, document

The following week you will receive the design brief with your wishes and starting points for the design. A deposit of 50% is requested.

Picking out the gems

Week 5*, duration 1 hour

I will be searching for your desired gemstones for your engagement ring. I present you several options and if possible I prepare a gemstone view. During the view you will see various options in real life. You make a choice for a gemstone. *The gems view will be scheduled 3 weeks after receiving the deposit. Sometimes it happens that a specific gemstone has a slightly longer delivery time and that we have to wait a little longer.

The design meeting

Week 9, duration 1 hour, document and 3D print

I have worked out the design of your ring in the design document. It contains sketches and details of the design. If necessary, I make a prototype of the ring. Based on your feedback, I refine the design.

The final design

Week 10, document

The final design for your ring is recorded in the design document. After approval I will make your ring in my studio. The making process is intensive and takes an average of 8 weeks. I use craft techniques along with 3D printing and laser engraving.

Engraving + Inspection by Warranty

Week 18

When your engagement ring is almost finished, it will be inspected by Waarborg Holland. They inspect the metal for precious metal content and stamp the master's mark in the jewellery. It is possible to engrave your ring with a personal message.

Your ring is finished!

Week 20, thé RING

Around week 20 we will make an appointment for pick up of your engagement ring. You will receive it in a beautiful jewellery box from Lasand. If you need the ring earlier: discuss this with me, and I will see what is possible. 

 The price of a custom engagement ring in 14K yellow gold starts at

€1475 + additional costs for the gemstone*

*Count on a minimum of 250 euros in costs for a gemstone. Check out some gems that are readily available here.

 What are the costs for a custom made engagement ring?

The price of your custom made engagement ring is influenced by several factors:

  • The thickness and width of the ring. After all, the more material there is in a ring, the higher the price. It also matters whether you choose 14 karat gold or 18 karat gold.
  • The value of the gemstone. The value of the gemstone depends, among other things, on the type of gemstone, the carat weight and the cut of the gemstone.
  • The design of the ring and the technique of making the ring. When symbolism is incorporated in the ring or when the design of the ring deviates from the "standard", more time and attention is paid to the design and making of the ring. The ring often contains more volume and material.

Due to these factors, there can be a lot of variation in the price of an engagement ring. To keep it clear for you, I use  4 categories of engagement rings:

  1. Petite € 1475 + gemstone*
  2. Fine € 1950 + gemstone*
  3. Extra € 2450 + gemstone*
  4. Super € 2950 + gemstone*

*These are the prices for 14 carat yellow gold. There is a 10% surcharge for 14 carat palladium white gold. 

*Count on a minimum of 250 euros in costs for a gemstone. Check out some gems that are readily available here.

Together we will discuss in which category your dream ring falls and I will get to work to create the design of your dreams. View the extensive schedule below to see what the possibilities are per category.

Note: it is difficult to incorporate symbolism into the design with the petite engagement ring, but this ring can be personalized.

Gemstone cut options:

Edelsteen slijpingen en vormen

Sometimes you want a bit more: for example a bi-color ring or an engagement ring made of 18 karat gold. Check out the options below:

*Due to the high palladium price, there is currently a 10% surcharge for palladium white gold.

"Now I have a ring that is unique, that no one else has and that is exactly what I was looking for. Even though I didn't know what it looked like yet!"

"The result is the unique engagement ring I had in mind and it is exactly what my wife likes!"

"With her professional knowledge and creative view, she shaped my idea into a beautiful design."

"The process we went through with Sandra was very pleasant: clear ánd creative."

"Your wishes are the actual starting point, nothing seems impossible!"
