You are welcome to bring old gold that you would like to remelt into your wedding band. Sometimes people wish to add special family rings no longer worn to make their ring all that more special.
To make your rings we will need to start off with a strip of metal which is roughly the same shape and width to the band you want to make.
So in order to get the correct materials for you there are three bits of information we will need to know
Width - how wide you would like your band?
Thickness - how thick would you like your band?
Shape - what basic shape you would like from a curved band or a flat style of band?
Metal Choice - what metal you would like to make your rings out of?
We work in yellow gold, white gold, sterling silver, copper and bronze.
Curved on the outside and flat on the inside, this is the most classic shape of wedding band.
With straight sides and a flat outside and inside.
Oval or court is curved on the inside and also on the outside.
Sometimes called halo, round is made from a piece of round wire and is only suitable for smaller rings.
Textures & Surface Finish
From the three basic ring shapes we can help you to make many different styles of band, from a classic perfectly polished ring to a unique hand textured band.
You can apply a polished, brushed, textured, hammered or sculpted finish to any of the material options and you will get to try out some different techniques on test metal and a practice ring before applying to your own wedding bands.
