Platinum and Diamond Wedding and Engagement Ring

I am thoroughly enjoying making wedding and engagement rings at the moment. May and July seem to be popular months to marry! I am currently working on several jewellery commissions for men and women who have been married many years but have lost or need a new wedding ring. I love hearing the stories behind each ring.

A number of rings I am making at the moment combine wedding and engagement rings into one ring.

I am regularly asked to remodel or make a new ring using clients own wedding or engagement rings. The ring below is an example where a client gave me her mothers', grandmothers' and mother in laws' wedding rings and commission me to make one new wedding ring for her! I kept the rings intact, just adjusted slightly to keep all the original engraving and hallmarks.

Ring sizing

Standard designs

Sue makes rings to the size you select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:

  1. You (the customer) pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid online or via bank transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it is returned within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact Sue before returning a ring for a re-size; it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Please note: rings must be returned via Royal Mail Special Delivery and opting for the appropriate insurance option to cover the cost of the item. Sue Lane is not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit. For more details, please read our Returns Policy.

After 14 days: Sue will happily resize but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work plus postage. Sue can quote for any work before you return the ring.

Commissioned designs

Any item made just for you, that is not one of Sue's standard designs: You (the customer) need to ensure the size is correct before Sue commences any work. If your order doesn't fit, Sue may be able to resize for you depending on the design and stones used. There may well be a charge involved due to the complexity of the design and for working with stones that where not supplied by Sue which may be difficult to work with. Contact Sue to discuss if it is possible and she can let you know the cost involved, including postage.

Not sure of your ring size?

If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. She can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
