Explore our custom engagement rings and the love stories behind them.

Max & Molly

Max contacted us looking for a special engagement ring for his long-term girlfriend Molly. With unique personal style, Molly’s ring needed to reflect her personality and lifestyle.

Deciding on a pear-shape diamond, The Istana Team sourced the diamond and designed a bespoke and custom band to compliment the stone. Finished off in yellow gold, the engagement ring was delivered to Max a few days before his special proposal at Anantara World Islands Resort.

Roxanne was a pleasure to deal with and made what could have been a stressful process virtually seamless. She was able to work within the relatively tight timeframe and was flexible in respect of matching the budget with her expertise. The insight she provided was invaluable and created a very special ring for both of us which holds a huge amount of sentimental value. In summary, would highly recommend.

James & Patricia

James came to us with a very specific design in mind. With his Thai heritage, James wanted the band to have a traditional Thai engraving with a small green stone and provided many mood boards in which the Istana Team could draw inspiration from. After thoughtfully drawing out the design for engraving, the Istana team produced a beautifully unique, one-of-a-kind design.

Proposing at a beautiful lake in Germany, Patricia happily accepted.

I wanted something entirely bespoke that I could design to reflect my heritage, but I didn’t know where to start! Thanks to Roxanne and Istana, the entire experience was tailored with expert advice and guided by a personal touch.
