The Durham Rose Experience – Personalised custom made rings
We specialise in bespoke diamond rings. Our easy to use, online 3D design consultations go far beyond any other online design process, using the same CAD software used by architects to create an unparalleled level of customisation. You’ll design and customise every flourish & sparkle with our help. We’ll then hand-make it using the very finest, certified diamonds. Seen a diamond ring that you like? We’ll recreate it and help you add those vital personalised touches. Once you’re happy with the design, our workshop will build it using the very finest, hand selected diamonds and materials.
Our Dragons' Den story
When we were still known as Hot Pink, we braved the BBC’s Dragons’ Den and pitched our business to some of the UK’s leading investors. Our founder, Manu, stood his ground under some tough questioning but in the end Hot Pink did not get an investment.
Hand-picked, certified diamonds
Fine diamonds are among the most coveted of all gems, but their value differs widely from one diamond to another. Our diamonds are carefully crafted by Infinity Diamonds, and we only use stones graded by leading industry experts GIA, AGS and HRD. These experts evaluate every diamond for rarity and beauty using four primary guidelines known as the Four Cs – Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat Weight – so you know you are getting top quality every time.
Beautifully Bespoke Rings
We have hand crafted custom rings in every shape, size and colour imaginable. Below is a selection of some of our favourites and you can explore hundreds more custom ring design ideas in our ‘Inspiration gallery‘ in the top menu. Remember, the images are simply conceptual; every piece we make is crafted by a bespoke ring designer and made specifically to your taste. After all, why settle for run of the mill when you can have perfection? Although we primarily produce custom engagement rings, we can also create beautiful bespoke commitment rings, wedding bands and jewellery for every possible occasion.
Guaranteed to be unique
Design your own ring that’s unlike anything else. We guarantee originality when our design experts turn vision into reality. We believe our clients should be at the centre of everything we do. You will be assigned a dedicated design expert who will talk you through every stage of the process, translating your ideas and inspiration into reality with a beautiful custom ring. Our motto is that if a concept follows the laws of physics, we can make it.

Formerly Hot Pink
Before we were Durham Rose we were Hot Pink, but as our company grew we decided that our name should grow with us too. Like our bespoke service, we wanted our company’s name to feel truly personal, and what could be more personal than naming it after the couple behind the business? Read more
