Summerhall is already a popular destination for weddings, and now you can come and spend an evening or day with us making each others wedding rings, could anything be more romantic? Wedding rings can be made in silver, 9ct yellow & white gold, 18ct yellow & white gold. Where palladium and platinum is required you'll make your rings out of sterling silver and then these are sent to a casting company where they are moulded and then replicas are made with your chosen metal. There are a variety of different shapes to choose from, as well as a variety of different and finishes.
When you book your workshop with us you will be invited to an informal consultation, where you can come along to the studio and meet our jeweller. We will take your ring sizes, and show some sample rings to help you decide on your materials and ring shape. Then we order in your metal ready for your special day. Consultations can also take place over the phone or even by e-mail.
Our aim is for you to have a relaxed and enjoyable experience, so typically the day starts with a cup of tea or coffee and an overview from our jeweller of the process involved in making your rings.
In the morning you will saw and file the metal for your ring to the correct size and later form it so that the two ends meet. You will then solder the join together. The rings then need to be cleaned and shaped into round bands. They are then checked for size, with any alterations taking place as necessary. Once they are a perfect fit, the clean up process begins and they are polished to your desired finish. In amongst all of this you'll be treated to a light lunch at Summerhall's bar and restaurant: The Royal Dick. Once your rings are ready you can pop open the fizz and review the images that will be taken of you throughout the day.
