This private Bring Your Own Gold Wedding Ring Workshop is held over one or, one an a half days depending on the complexity of the rings. This workshop is for couples who want to supply their own gold, which can be yellow or rose gold jewellery, or gold nuggets.
Unfortunately, we are unable to make white gold wedding rings using this method. If you'd like to make your wedding ring from white gold ring, please see links below to our other wedding ring workshops.
In this workshop, we measure your fingers and then you carve a ring from wax. You will then create a sand-mould and use the wax ring to create an impression in the sand mould. Watch a quick video showing part of the process of creating a sand mould being created.
Once you've created your mould, you will melt down your gold and create the alloy This is where we add silver and copper to make an 18ct, 14ct or 9ct gold alloy, and where we are able to turn yellow gold into rose. The next step is to cast your rings. Here's a short video showing the melting of the gold and casting of the ring.
After you have cast your rings, you work directly with the gold to file, sand and polish your ring. The process takes between 8 and 12 hours.
