In the engagement ring workshop, participants have a design consultation about what they would like the ring to look like. Colors for the engagement ring include white, yellow, or rose gold in either 18K or 14K, along with a choice of texture and finish. Additionally, diamonds aren’t the only stones that can be set, participants can set any type of stone. And, at the end of the day, participants can say their engagement ring was custom made and handcrafted with love.

The La Prong wedding band workshop is the only do-it-yourself (DIY), hands-on workshop in Dallas-Fort Worth where participants make their own wedding bands.

Colors for the wedding band include 14K or 18K white gold, rose gold or yellow gold.

Participants will a raw gold ingot into a symbol of their love through measuring, cutting, shaping, soldering, sanding and polishing.

“In the end, you are sure to have a unique ring that is quality made with the labor love, all for about the same price as buying mass manufactured rings from a traditional jewelry store,” the website reads.
