The clients had quite clear ideas as to the design of these wedding rings and wanted to create a pair of rings, different yet matching, with the bride’s ring having an art deco, antique feel to it; bold, not fussy, and with printmaker lines. The bride’s ring also had to compliment and integrate with the unusual engagement ring.
The groom’s ring was to be “over the top” while still keeping a classic line – a flat ring but individual and different than the norm. It was to use different coloured golds in a twisting pattern to symbolise the twists and turns of life.
The bride’s ring is a narrow band of 18ct white gold which fits snugly against the edge of the engagement ring, while a deco style yellow gold projection arches around the diamonds of the engagement ring, holding the two rings snugly together.
The groom’s ring echoes the pattern of the bride’s engagement ring by using twisted mokume gane in red, white and yellow gold, with an 18ct white gold insert. See below for pictures of the process.
