With over 25 years experience as manufacturing jewellers, designing and creating jewellery, we have the experience to ensure creating your dream ring is easy and enjoyable.
Making wedding rings is a special service we love to do - creating the wedding rings for the bride and groom - rings that they will wear for a lifetime - brings us so much satisfaction.
We work in yellow gold, white gold, rose gold or even pink gold - or a mixture of the any of these, also platinum and palladium. We can source the diamonds for you or you can use your own stones. We can make from scratch or we can incorporate gold and stones from existing rings.
You may know exactly what you want, or have just a vague idea - talk with us and we will help you - the design process starts with your ideas.
Our first meeting is a complimentary one hour design session - for us to meet each other, see if you would like to work with us and to have a chat about what sort of wedding band you would like. After meeting you we will ask some questions about the metal you want to use, whether you want diamonds or other stones or plain gold. From there we begin to sketch for you, working together every step of the way until you are 100% satisfied.
Those first moments as a married couple - beyond special

We have created a 'To - Do' list to help you with the planning of creating your wedding rings - do feel free to print this list and add it to your wedding planning folder - we hope it helps with planning your wedding.
To-Do List for Your Wedding Bands
Often the detailed planning and budgeting involved with a wedding somehow overlooks the rings!
Obviously you need a ring but it is easy to become consumed with finding the perfect venue, the perfect wedding gown, celebrant, photographer etc - but what about the wedding rings?
Follow this step by step to-do list for a stress free plan for the dream rings.
Once you have set your wedding date:
- Start window shopping in jeweller shops and looking through bridal magazines for pictures of weddings rings. Do you want to buy 'off -the-shelf' or have your wedding band ring made custom made exclusively for you?
- Keep a notebook and write down the things that you like about any of the rings you see.
- Talk with each other regarding rings. Are you both going to wear one?
- Think about what you would like the ring to be made of. Do you like yellow gold or white gold? Platinum? Palladium? We work in all of these metals.
- Do you want matching his and hers bands? Diamonds?
Six months before the big day
Meet with the jeweller of your choice to discuss the ring of your dreams.
Decide on the metal you want the ring made from, and whether you want plain bands or with stones.
Have your finger sized, get the design drawn up and obtain an accurate quote. Figure this into yoru wedding budget so you don't have any surprises.
Three months before the big day
Pay the deposit to your jeweller and give the go ahead to start making the rings - this allows plenty of time to get the rings valued, plus allows for final fittings - this can be super important - especially if you have lost weight in the lead up to the wedding - a weight loss of only around 5kg can mean a whole ring size smaller!
Think about how you will present your rings at the wedding.
