This is the perfect gift for a couple preparing for their special day. How romantic to receive this from your future bride or groom as a gift! You could also buy this experience for yourself, a friend or relative. Inside ring engraving is included in the price but may not be possible if your design is unusual.
At my studio in West Cornwall you will receive up to 6 hours of my expert tuition and supervision in making your own silver or gold wedding or affirmation rings.
As an add-on, we can use any gold left over from making your rings to make a tiny personalised nugget pendant for a flower girl. The cost of this is £50.
THE PRICE IS FOR 2 PEOPLE and includes biscuits and refreshments. 2 silver rings are included in the price. If you prefer gold, the prices are listed below. This is subject to fluctuation. If you decide you would like to make silver rings but would like them to be gold plated to match an existing engagement ring, this can be done in the studio at an extra charge.
LOCATION: The location is Cornwall and the nearest railway station is Camborne, which is 5 minutes walking distance away. Ample parking is available on the road outside the studio or in the driveway.
DURATION: Up to 6hrs. The day starts at 10am and ends when you are happy with your finished rings.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
This experience includes 2 silver rings, personalised with your own special message, measuring 2mm, 3mm, or 4mm wide. There is an additional supplement for making the rings in either 9ct or 18ct gold, Alternative widths or shapes of rings available on request in advance of the day. If you would like your gold rings hallmarked, there is an additional charge of £50 for this.
Please see approximate gold prices below and allow at least 10 days for me to purchase the metals. Once we have agreed on your gold requirements, I will send you an invoice.
You may bring your own gold to be recycled, for which there is an extra charge. I would need to know the carat of gold, weight and the nature of your gold – ie whether it is hallmarked, rings, chains etc. Some pieces are not suitable for recycling – light chains, earrings etc. as these often have too much solder in them which makes the gold liable to crack when it is processed. I’m happy to try and work with it but you need to be aware that it may not be suitable. It may be best to check with me first.
If your engagement ring is an unusual shape and you would like your wedding ring to fit around it, please send me a photo of your ring first to be sure it is possible. We may have to make the ring in wax and then have it cast into your required metal. There may be an additional charge for a shaped ring which we can discuss when you make your booking. Please note that it is not always possible to engrave a shaped ring.
If you would like platinum rings, we will usually make the rings in silver (or wax, if an unusual shape) and send it to a casting company who will make a rubber mould from your silver ring and then cast it in platinum. This will mean a delay of up to a month in you receiving the finished ring and will incur an additional casting charge.
You will need to book your experience in advance and these usually take place at weekends, though other days may be available. You and your partner will have exclusive use of the studio on the day. Please wear comfortable clothing with no hanging scarves etc. for safety reasons. Long hair should be tied back and you will need to wear closed in shoes to prevent any accidental burns to the feet.
