Buying an engagement ring is one of the most exciting times in your relationship. It can, of course, also be daunting! Easily one of the most emotional and monumental gifts you'll ever give/receive, the engagement ring symbolizes a lifetime promise — you're going to want it to be perfect. Enter: Dana Rebecca Designs! We want to make this special time easy, informative and fun — this is how our process works. 

Step #1: A consultation with one of our Bridal Experts.

If you’re located near Chicago, we'd love to have you and your fiancé visit us in our showroom (add link to page) for a champagne toast + in-person conversation (which is super easy to book —add link). If you’re not local, our team is available via phone, email and face-time to walk you through the entire process.


BTW: It’s helpful to show us photos of your dream ring so that we have a sense of what you/your partner do and do not gravitate towards. However, if you have no clue about what you like after looking at photos, don't worry. Much like clothing, you might need to try on some things to figure out what you love!


Step #2: The VITAL center stone conversation! 


At this appointment, we’ll show you several options from our diamond inventory while our experts drop knowledge by breaking down the unique characteristics of each diamond to help your decision process. 


BTW: The internet is overflowing with advice from all kinds of people (some qualified, many not) about how to buy a diamond and what to look for. The DRD Bridal Experts are truly experts as they have diplomas from GIA (the Gemological Institute of America) and know diamonds. They’re the real deal + they’re also fun :)

Step #3: The setting design kicks off! 


Our designers will show you a CAD image of the setting, which is a digital blueprint of the ring. From simple to ornate, the sky's the limit with our designs. We pride ourselves on creating unique engagement rings with sentimental details and sublime craftsmanship.


BTW: Know your partner's ring size! If the two of you are working on this together, we can measure finger sizes at our first consultation. If the proposal is a complete surprise, we can help you try and figure out their ring size on the sly. 

Step #4: Proposal time! This is all you — you’ve got this! 

BTW: Breathe deeply. Speak from the heart. Don’t drop the ring. 

FINALLY: …CELEBRATE! If you’re in Chicago, we’d love to have you and your fiancé over for [more] champagne! Please know that we’re over the top excited for you and PLEASE, please send us photos!
