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.
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.
