Here’s a quick overview of some of the things you’ll learn
In this comprehensive guide we’ll walk you through:
The pros and cons of handmade vs machine-made rings
- Very often wedding or commitment rings are simple, plain bands that really don’t require a lot of thought. But just as often, people get very creative when designing a wedding or commitment ring – whether that’s to fit with an existing engagement ring or to stand alone. We’ll show you what’s possible.
The 7 key design considerations you need to take into account:
- How much you have to spend – understanding how much things cost so you can set a realistic budget;
- The aesthetic you’re trying to create. Is yours going to be purely ‘functional’, or are you aiming to add more meaning to the design;
- Occupation and Interests – we want to be sure the rings you have made will be easy to live with;
- Your hands – an often over-looked design consideration. The ring needs to suit the size and shape of your hands and fingers;
- Allergies and skin reactions – the right metal choice and ring design can make all the difference between something being a pleasure to wear, or a pain;
- Does the ring need to be fitted to an engagement ring?; and
- Allowing enough time – designing and hand making an engagement ring is not a quick process. Here we’ll make sure you don’t cut it too fine.
Making new from old:
- In this section we explore the option of recycling old jewellery to make new pieces. Is it worth it? And if so, how it’s done and what your expectations should be. (We understand too that sometimes it’s all about the sentiment.)
Precious metals and design
- Here we’ll look at the available options – which will be best for you and your ring design – and how to design and maintain a ring to keep it looking beautiful
