Commission Your Wedding and Engagement Rings

I work to commission to enable you to have input into your modern and bespoke wedding and engagement rings and have exactly what you want. This may include different size diamonds, different metals, different stones or different band widths.  

If you are interested please do get in touch. I can work by email or phone and if you are nearby you are welcome to visit the studio. Please allow at least 4 weeks for your ring to be made, I can sometimes finish sooner, so do get in touch for an accurate delivery time. 

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. Commissioning is based on the style of my own work. 

Example 1

Unusual, unique, bespoke and modern platinum and diamond wedding and engagement ring commission. Handmade by contemporary designer maker Sue Lane Jewellery UK

My client purchased my platinum and diamond 2 band ring (left) Later they returned to discuss options for their wedding rings. I made a third ring to the join the engagement ring, making the wedding and engagement ring one ring permanently linked together to symbolise their marriage. I made a simple matt platinum wedding ring for him to complement his wife's ring. 

Example 2

Handmade modern and bespoke set of commissioned white gold and diamond wedding rings, by designer maker Sue Lane Contemporary Jewellery, UK
My clients first saw my silver and diamond ring which they loved (left). We added a hammered finish to contrast with the sparkle of the diamonds to create two 18k gold wedding rings commissioned with the wedding date engraved inside.

Example 3

Handmade modern and bespoke set of diamond white and rose gold wedding rings, made to commission by designer maker Sue Lane Contemporary Jewellery, UK

This set of wedding rings was commissioned after seeing my platinum and diamond ring (left) online. One ring is 18k rose gold with a white gold and diamond loop and the other is white gold with a rose gold loop. I made the loop with wire from the other ring, making it very symbolic. 

Example 4

Unusual, unique, bespoke and modern rose gold and silver diamond wedding and engagement ring handmade to commission by Sue Lane Contemporary Jewellery, UK

My client contacted me after she saw my silver and gold ring (left). After meeting and trying lots of variations, we decided this rose gold, silver and diamond ring worked best for her hands and needs. We added a slightly larger diamond and swapped silver for rose gold bands. 

Example 5

 

My clients saw my platinum and marquise diamond two band ring online and loved the modern design (left). We uses this as the starting point to make them a 9k white gold wedding ring set. The man's wedding ring is set with a 2mm diamond and the ladies ring is set with diamonds and a 10x5mm peridot in 18k yellow gold. Here is a similar peridot ring

The image above illustrates the natural colour or 18k white gold (top) and the more recognized colour when rhodium plated (bottom). The plating does "wear" with in several years, so this must be considered if you choose to have your rings plated. Have a look at my blog post White Gold.
