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.

From the moment we arrived at the shop in the heart of London’s famous Hatton Garden, we were made to feel very welcome by Daniel and the team. We were shown through to the workshop, where we met Scott and Mary. Scott is a fantastic, attentive and patient teacher. His wealth of experience and passion for his craft is evident. From the initial consultation on the design and style, through to every step of the fabrication process we couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. Mary was also on hand to give us some words of encouragement as she stealthily snapped some photographs of us at work. The net result of which, we later received on a USB stick with our finished rings - a great, little touch - and something we’ll definitely use as part of the wedding album. 

 

To be honest, when we first booked the experience with Daniel and the team, we thought this is going to be a great day, and while we’d get to do a little of the work, but we’d probably be mostly watching. Strap yourselves in! When Daniel Christopher say ‘Make your own rings’ - they absolutely mean in. Expertly guided by Scott, we undertook everything from annealing the metals to polishing them with a rainbow of different polishing compounds. On the way, we did everything in between; rolling, cutting, hammering with a traditional pig skin mallet and of course more than a little filing. With the final coat of polish applied; all that remained was to pop the Champagne cork.

 

We couldn’t recommend the experience highly enough. Neither of us are the crafty type, but getting the unique opportunity to do something like this was truly special. A day well fondly remember for the years to come.
