Make your own wedding rings

What could be more romantic?

Wedding bands symbolise a lifelong commitment to your loved one. So what could be more romantic than classically creating your own?

What happens on the day

Held within our fully equipped jewellery workshop in the heart of Hatton Garden, London’s historical diamond district, the Make Your Own Wedding Rings day is a truly special experience to share as a couple.

You and your partner will be handcrafting your wedding rings from scratch, including designing the rings, shaping the metals, soldering, stretching, cleaning and polishing the finished piece, all done under the watchful eye of Scott, our talented master goldsmith.

The experience includes use of workshop, goldsmith time and guidance, tools and practice materials, hallmarking and ring boxes, and refreshments throughout the day as well as lunch. At the end of the day you will be given a bottle of champagne to take away with you as a celebration of your special day.

THE PROCESS

You will begin with designing your ring - choosing the shape, width and finish for your wedding band. After this you will start shaping the ring, heating a strip of metal of your choice and stretching it to required length and width. You will then use a variety of tools to form the metal into a ring shape, cutting and bending it further to make it into the perfect shape and size. Once the ends of the metal meet, you will then solder them together, creating a complete ring. You will then refine the ring with more goldsmith's tools, polish it, and apply the final surface finish. Our master goldsmith will be there to guide you through the whole process.

After your workshop, we will polish the insides of your rings and send them off to Assay Office to be hallmarked.

We recently spent a fantastic morning at DC Jewellery actually making my wedding ring! The whole process was absolutely amazing and it was such a special day. We cannot recommend Dan and his whole team highly enough for their excellent, personal and professional service. Everyone we met was very friendly, highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their products. The day was just excellent!

We started with a design consultancy looking at all the details of the ring design. We were allowed to take our time and reviewed many ring widths, settings, etc before deciding, which was a lot! We were offered a lot of great advice and it was good to benefit from their design experience.

Once the design was decided it was time to head to the jewellery workshop where we would make the ring. We actually started with a piece of platinum and did all heating, cutting, bending, shaping, thinning, lots of filing and polishing ourselves. Working under the excellent guidance of Scott, the master jeweller. He talked us through everything, enthusiastically explaining all the processes and making sure we didn't make any mistakes along the way! Scott was lovely to work with, very patient, good at explaining each process and inspiring confidence. Such fun!

Afterwards we also had some diamonds and an emerald set into the stone, this was left to the experts! I am so happy with the finished ring, it looks lovely and is very comfortable to wear and I still can't believe we made it ourselves!!

If you're getting married, or have a special celebration and looking for that special ring and unique experience, contact Daniel and book a day that you will never forget and value every time you look at your ring!

Thank you Dan & Scott
