Make your own Wedding Rings

At WMM wedding ring workshops, couples can make their own special rings in the comfort of the WMM Silver Studio at Taurus Crafts Visitor Centre, Lydney in the Forest of Dean under the expert guidance of experienced gold/silversmith Wendy. There is nothing so personal and unique as doing it for yourself and together – an experience which you can wear on your finger forever! The joy and satisfaction of having something so personal is priceless as the testimonials below show.

If you are making your rings in gold, we start the day with a practice ring in silver which you can also keep. You will learn how to size, cut, file, and solder the ring then shape and polish them together and learn a little more about metallurgy and the process of goldsmithing.. After having practised with silver, you then make your ring in gold.  You can, if you wish, make your rings in silver instead too.

After you have made your rings, we will ensure that they are perfectly polished to a fine shine and then be sent to the Birmingham Assay Office for hallmarking including the year mark.  This is included in the price and takes around one week to ten days to process.  You will receive your rings in a wooden luxury double ring box.

The cost of the workshop is £118 each (so one price of £236 covers the two of you) and includes the cost of hallmarking both your rings at the Birmingham Assay Office and a luxury twin-ring wooden box.  There is an additional cost for gold materials used. Typically for a P-sized ring this works out at around £140 for 9ct gold and 4mm in width.  Narrower rings will cost less and this also depends on the daily price of bullion.  You will be sent a ring sizer in advance to measure your fingers and so that we can order in the correct amount of gold. Silver rings do not incur any additional cost.

The workshop takes about 4-5 hours and you’ll be kept in plentiful supply of coffee, tea and homemade shortbread.  You can either bring a packed lunch or take advantage of the delicious fare available in Taurus Crafts’ restaurant.
