No one really knows when the tradition of the wedding ring really started but wedding rings have been used for around 5000 years. They have been made from everything; Twisted reeds, wood, metal etc. Today they are made from Gold, Titanium, Platinum or Palladium or combinations of metal. You can have something ready-made or custom made.
We specialise in wedding rings and have some, out of the box amazing styles and suggestions to get you exactly what you want. Make sure you visit us before you make that big decision.
We love doing things differently and where we can, save the planet. Did you know that, it takes approximately 20 tonnes of gold bearing earth, to be moved to find the gold to make one 18ct gold wedding ring and then there is the pollution on top of that. We offer a unique service for “greening up” that process up. Our concept, to help save the planet is that, you can get both of your families to contribute old broken bits of gold from their jewellery boxes to remodel into your new wedding rings. It’s not only saving the planet one ring at a time but it’s also saving you money and adding a romantic statement of combining the family’s gold to make your new wedding rings. If you need any more information, please contact us.
We have created a new style of wedding ring called “The Cradle”. This is a ring that acts as both a wedding and eternity ring as it cradles the engagement ring in the middle of the design. The cradle is especially good for keeping the engagement ring in place and protecting it from future damage. If you would like to know if your engagement ring is suitable for this type of design, please contact us.
We stock only the best ready-made wedding rings.
These rings take approximately 3 ½ weeks to be made.

We can then get this ring for you to try on to make sure you like the actual ring on your finger before committing to the purchase.

If you can’t find anything you like in the ready-mades then have a ring made by us, especially for you that is original for you and your bride. Contact us. for more details.
No one really knows when the tradition of the wedding ring really started but wedding rings have been used for around 5000 years.The circle was the symbol of eternity, with no beginning or end & the hole in the centre was believed to be a gateway or door leading to unknown things ahead. It was usually worn by the woman and signified never ending & immortal Love.The wedding ring was used to demonstrate: Wealth (of the giver), love, ownership (in some cultures) & strength and permanence of the relationship.
It is worn on the 4th finger on the left hand traditionally as it was believed that the vein in that finger connected to the heart (which is false). It is more likely that this finger is the finger that the ring gets less damaged on hence it is a perfect finger for a permanent piece of jewellery. Interestingly, in Norway, Russia, Greece, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Poland, Austria, Germany, Portugal and Spain, the wedding ring in worn on the ring finger of the right hand and not the left. In Jewish tradition, the groom places the ring on the bride’s index finger, and not the “ring” finger at all.
Wedding rings can be plain, engraved, diamond set and usually match the Engagement ring. On the wedding day, the engagement ring is worn on the right-hand ring finger. This way the groom can slip the wedding ring on during the ceremony. After the ceremony, the bride then adds the engagement ring to the top of the wedding ring on the left-hand ring finger to complete the set.
