With this ring (that we lovingly handcrafted together) I thee wed
A wedding ring is a symbol of love, and the most important piece of jewellery a man or woman will ever wear – so to share the experience of handcrafting that special piece with your partner is the opportunity of a lifetime. It’s also the most romantic date you’ll ever go on; because, let’s face it, nothing says “I love you” better than spending the day together handcrafting each other’s wedding bands.
Each ring starts out as a small stick of chosen metal, and after milling, bending, soldering and the finishing touches of filing, buffing and polishing, your wedding bands are ready for your special day.
At Larsen Jewellery you can share the unique and romantic experience of making each other’s wedding rings under the guidance of your own personal jeweller. The Wedding Ring Experience takes around four hours and includes everything, starting with the design of the ring and finishing with a couple of glasses of champagne.
The jewellers are all an experienced bunch, and while providing plenty of guidance to ensure a quality end product, they allow couples to be as involved or observant as they feel comfortable. Each ring starts out as a small stick of chosen metal, and after milling, bending, soldering and the finishing touches of filing, buffing and polishing, your wedding bands are ready for your special day.
Somewhere in amongst the fun, the jeweller also finds time to order you a simple meal, so you can take a moment to stop, reflect and treasure the day. If the couple wants extras such as fingerprint engravings or diamonds, then they leave the bands at the end of their experience for the jeweller to apply the finishing touches.
To find a person you want to marry and spend the rest of your life with is an amazing feeling, and to watch them lovingly shape a piece of jewellery that you will wear for ever is a fantastic bonus that should not be discounted from any wedding plans.
