Simple, modern and unique wedding rings

There is nothing more beautiful than a simple band of metal to signify your marriage. I make a large selection of wedding rings from something very classic and simple through to wedding rings with diamonds, multiple stacking rings, to rings with a hammered texture finish.

Most of my rings begin life as strips of wire and by using the process in the film above I create unique handmade rings. The joy of my rings is that you know they have been created with love and care by hand in my rural Herefordshire jewellery making studio, not by a machine (which is how most wedding rings are made). I am always at the end of the phone (or email) for advice about sizing or refinishing at anytime now or in the future.

I also know from over 18 years of making wedding rings how difficult it can be for clients choose the correct size. Fingers can change dramatically from cold to hot conditions, and if you are not used to wearing rings you are more likely to choose a ring size that is a little too loose for you. Fear of getting rings "stuck" on your finger is often the reason people opt for the safer option of choosing a looser fitting. However, I'm sure most of us have heard stories from friends, family or colleagues of people losing their wedding ring whilst swimming on honeymoon. The reality is that a little handcream or soap will almost always remove a snug fitting ring, but a ring lost at the bottom of the ocean in unlikely to be worn again!

Choosing your size is a little bit of a minefield. Even if you visited several different high street jewellers, each may well give you a different sizing. Each jeweller sizes differently, each type of ring profile requires a different finger size, combined with narrower rings feeling larger in size than wider rings even though they are both the same size.

With this in mind, once you have decided on your ring design and have chosen me to make them for you, I will happily send you a silver sample ring to try in the width, shape and size you want. I suggest wearing it over night and during the day, with hot and cold hands, dry and wet, so we can then use this to get the actual wedding rings the correct size. The rings can also be resized afterwards at any point too (a small fee for postage and or time maybe charged).

The possibilities are endless but I make traditional classic wedding rings just for you in polished or brushed finishes. If you already know your width and profile just get in touch and I can can give you prices.

Remodel existing wedding rings?

We all know that wedding rings hold huge significance and are often handed down through the generations. If you have family wedding rings and would like them to become your wedding rings, I can either work with them to change the size and shape or melt them down and cast new wedding rings. Have a look at my remodelling jewellery page for more information.

Ring sizing

Sue makes rings to the size your 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 by cheque or back transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it's 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.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

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.
