Make Your Own Engagement Ring
Crafted by your own hands with your love and commitment your engagement ring would be the ultimate personalised symbol of your love with its own romantic story.
Make your own engagement ring in silver gold or platinum with colourful gems or diamonds of your choice in my jewellery studio in Bristol.
Spend at least 1 day in a pretty rural jewellery workshop, with cake, tea, coffee and soft drinks. Photos and videos will be taken as a memento of your day which can be shared once your surprise proposal is out in the open. Alternatively, make your ring/s as a couple as a romantic experience together.
This 1-1 workshop will be quoted for depending on your design ideas and the cost of the metal and stones will be estimated and discussed with you before the day of the workshop. All design ideas will be discussed prior to the workshop so there is a firm plan to follow and you can spend the day using the jewellers tools to handcraft your piece. I can source a collection of gems and diamonds for you to choose from on the day.
A minimum of £320 is based on a day’s workshop of 6 hours, however, the time may be taken over 2 days to allow for any casting, hallmarking or setting processes needed. The additional costs of metal, gemstones hallmarking and stone setting will be discussed prior so there will be no surprise bills you weren’t aware of.
If you are interested in this bespoke experience day please email me via the contact page so we can begin the design process.
