Handmade Wedding Rings
Why choose a handmade wedding band?
A wedding band is a very personal purchase, so having it hand made just for you makes perfect sense. Each of my pieces is hand made to order, allowing me to offer all UK sizes and half sizes, as well as a wide range of options of widths and profiles.
My ring making process
As each of my pieces is hand made to order I don't hold any stock beyond a range of samples. I quote about 4 to 6 weeks for hallmarked items, with samples for bespoke shapes on top of this.
Most pieces start as a piece of flat sheet metal or a piece of wire. Machined metal like this is stronger than cast pieces, and particularly for the thin bands gives a nice strong band.
Chunkier and more organic pieces are more suited to being cast from wax moulds, this is a service I offer. It can take a while, please get in touch at least 3 months before your wedding, and has a slightly higher upfront cost.
Types of wedding rings I make
Most wedding ring orders start with an email enquiry. I will need a general idea of what you are looking for, but there are far more options than are visible on the website.
I offer rings in 9ct and 18ct gold, yellow, white and rose, as well as sterling silver and a small amount of 14ct yellow gold.
I can offer delicate pieces in palladium and platinum via special order.
I recommend at least 1.2mm for a wedding band (more about slim wedding rings here), and go up to about 6mm from sheet metal. Wider is possible but might need to be carved in wax so would take a bit longer.
I offer a selection of profiles including D shapes, halos and flat bands. Making by hand means the shapes aren't necessarily as fixed as they would be for mass produced items, so there is flexibility around how curvy/flat/chunky/slim any band is. Some options aren't as efficient in terms of material buying so would be more expensive.
