Speak to one of our Designers.
Because engagement rings usually have a polished finish, women usually opt for a polished wedding ring.
If you don’t have an engagement ring, you can go for whatever surface finish you like!
Very few men wear an engagement ring, so their wedding ring does not have to match anything. This means men are generally free to go for any finish they like.
A textured is more interesting than a plain polished band. For many men a wedding ring is their only piece of jewellery and they want something more interesting than a traditional polished band.
A texture can make a ring look less “glitzy” than a highly polished one.
Someone who does a manual job the ring will be likely to put dents or scratches into the surface of their ring. These will be far less obvious on a textured ring, as any marks become part of the design.
A textured finish can be added to virtually any style of ring.
Applying the texture is generally one of the last stages in the production process.
We suggest you think about the width and depth of the ring first. It can be a perfectly straight band, or have any shape or contour. Once these aspects of the design have been decided you can consider which finish will work best for you.
As our rings are bespoke, nothing is standard. If you are looking for a particular effect we can discuss different techniques and tools we could use to achieve the look you have in mind.
The pictures shown below are just to give a little inspiration. – Endless variations are possible!
