Your wedding ring is the only part of the wedding that you’ll be wearing every day for the rest of your life. Instead of buying standard off-the-shelf wedding rings, you could design your own wedding rings.
– If you can describe it, we can create it for you! Even if you don’t have the faintest idea what style of wedding ring you would like you can still have a lot of input into the design of your own unique ring. We have plenty of ideas and we’ll offer all the expert advice you need. It is really a case of making lots of small decisions about aspects of the ring, and when you put them all together you have produced a design.
With a bride’s wedding ring we’ll usually start by looking at the engagement ring. The two rings need to complement one another. In most cases the engagement ring is the main focus of attention, and the wedding ring needs to enhance it rather than compete with it. We’ll advise you on how to strike the right balance to arrive at the effect you are after.
Men’s wedding rings are not usually worn alongside an engagement ring, so there is no need to match anything else. However, many men like the idea of matching at least some element of their partner’s wedding ring. – This is something else we cover at your consultation.
In all cases the size of the finger needs to be considered when deciding on the width of the band. There is no right or wrong width. it just has to look right to you!
Lifestyle is something we consider when designing your wedding ring. If you have a manual job or have “heavy-duty” hobbies you are likely to put marks into your ring. For this reason you might want to go for a surface finish that will disguise these marks. A dent or scratch on a plain polished ring will stand out but on a heavily textured wedding ring they will blend in with the texture.
If you come along for a consultation one of our skilled goldsmiths from our workshop will guide you through the design process. We’ll cover the points mentioned above and many more.
