Creating a Custom Engagement Ring- Part 2

Though rings are often associated with marriage, this isn’t always the case. Rings are versatile in meaning, and have held symbolic value in humanity for centuries. From personal expression to granting invisibility to physical declarations of love, rings really have no single purpose. Whether you’re a Lord of the Rings fan or want simply to create a cost-effective option for your fraternity, this is the perfect way to dip your toes into the world of SOLIDWORKS.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing with you a four part tutorial series on how to create a custom engagement ring in SOLIDWORKS! We’ll start slow, and cover everything from the prongs and settings to adding additional accent stones and rounding off the shank for maximum comfort.

Introducing Intermediate Features

The second video in the series introduces some intermediate features such as lofted boss and combine features. We will also be creating a circular pattern to form the prongs for the main stone. In addition, we give some tips on keeping history tree clutter to a minimum by using a single sketch for multiple part features.


Once a week for the next month, we will bring you the next step in the Custom Engagement Ring tutorial series. Can’t wait for the next video? View all of the tutorials on the playlist here.
