Commission Your Wedding and Engagement Rings

Commissioning / commission engagement ring, wedding ring - bespoke, handmade and unique from Sue Lane.

I work to commission to enable you to have input into your modern and bespoke wedding and engagement rings. This may include using different diamonds, metals, other stones or band widths than my usual designs. I'll ensure you get a bespoke and contemporary wedding or engagement ring made just for you!

If you are interested please do get in touch. I can work by email or phone and you are welcome to visit my in my contemporary jewellery studio. Sue x.

I have also written an in-depth What is Jewellery Commissioning page giving full details about exactly what commissioning jewellery means. It is important to say that I will not copy designs from another maker or company. Jewellery commissioning is based on the style of my own work. Please allow at least 5 weeks for your ring to be made. However, I can sometimes finish sooner so do get in touch for an accurate delivery time.

How to commission a wedding ring / band / or engagement ring with Sue Lane

I was recommended to my client from another customer. He wanted to commission a contemporary engagement ring similar to ones he had seen on my website. We decided upon using platinum with three diamonds set into the band and they where both delighted with the outcome.

Evening Sue,
It arrived safely. I took Laura for a stroll to where I had proposed to her. It is perfect and she loves it. You have been so easy to deal with and I couldn't be happier with what you have made.
Thank you,RF

Commissioning wedding and engagement rings with Sue Lane, contemporary jewellery.

I had the pleasure of having cup of tea in my contemporary jewellery studio with my clients to help choose a wedding ring for her. She spotted a ring she loved on my website, but wanted to combine it with a second ring she loved too. I mocked up a rough sample of the wedding ring for her to try at home, which she thought was perfect, and then I went on make it in silver 18ct white and yellow gold.

Hi Sue, The ring has arrived - it is beautiful and fits well. I have popped it back in the box for the big day in March and am looking forward to showing it to my mum in a couple of weeks! M&J

Commissioning wedding/engagement rings

My client found me through a Google search and got in contact about buying one of my off the peg rings to work with her own platinum wedding band. She sent a few photos to ask my advice if it would work. I suggested if she sent me her wedding ring I could match the exact same depth and shape so it would be a perfect match. It is exactly what we did and she was delighted. 

Hi Sue, My ring has arrived and I am delighted with it. It is just what I wanted after 2 years of searching. Thank you so much. I will definitely be coming to you again. Very best wishes. PH

Wedding ring commission / commissioning with Sue Lane in Herefordshire.

My clients made the journey to see me in my jewellery studio to chat about a wedding ring for her. She want it to match the depth and width of her own engagement ring, so they came along, had a cup of tea and tried some samples to be sure it would work and fit snuggly alongside and feel comfortable. I think her email when it arrived in the post says it all! 

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!! Thanks soooo much Sue! My ring is perfect and it fits beautifully. I love it 💜💜💜. MT

Russion style wedding ring commission by Sue Lane, Hereford.

My client was interested in commissioning an unusual wedding ring and spotted my unique Russian inspired wedding ring online. We meet in London and chatted though options and tried lots of different styles from my collection. We came up with a one-off commission just for her combining different coloured metals and the linked ring design she originally fell in love with. She was delighted!

Commission a wedding ring or engagement ring with Sue Lane, Herefordshire or London.

My clients wanted to celebrate their wedding anniversary by commissioning a new ring. However during our meeting she decided she didn't want a completely new piece as she loved the simplicity of her original wedding ring. We decide to add to it with a new white 18ct gold ring to match her own 18ct yellow gold band and make a loop to join them based on my classic style. They were both very over the moon when they collected from the studio.

My client ordered my platinum pear shape aquamarine and diamond stacking engagement ring via my website as a surprise his girlfriend and asked her to marry him. She, as expected, said "yes", and a few months later they came to see me in the studio to order their wedding rings too! I made a slightly wider version of my platinum and diamond engagement, wedding or eternity ring for her, with a few additional diamonds, and a lovely wider chinky palladium band for Andy.

Commissioned engagement ring example 14

My client spotted my contemporary palladium and diamond engagement ring for his wife, but wanted it to match her existing engagement ring. They made and appointment to visit me in the studio, where I could measure and take notes from her exiting ring to match the depth exactly. I used 20 x 1.3mm round diamonds to ensure it balanced with her engagement ring.

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.
