BESPOKE WEDDING RINGS
"You want your wedding band to match your engagement ring. But you also want it to be extra special. Everything on the high-street seems too standard and you want to be unique. We can help you to get the ring that sits, just perfect, on your finger"
GRAB A TEA, AND LOOK AROUND
Sit comfortably and have a good look around the website. I'm proud to say that we make very pretty rings. Let me share my ethos of ethical jewellery with you: "Beauty matters". If you like my style: the delicate bands, the carefully crafted engravings and the vintage feel, I will be thrilled to create your unique bespoke wedding band.
Don't worry, my rings don't cost as much as you think. As a guide, our bespoke wedding rings start at around £650.
They are also made with the most ethical materials available and manufactured from beginning to end in the UK by the most skilled craftsmen. A beautiful ring with a beautiful story to tell your friends. That, you definitely won't find on the high-street.
If you're not sure, just talk to us, we love a good chat. There is nothing better than a talk on the phone to go through your questions.
MEET WITH US
If you are not 100% sure how a wedding ring will sit with your engagement ring, it might be good to meet with us and try out some of our existing designs to get a better idea.
This is the perfect time to discuss what you want and what you don't want. If you have already tried wedding bands and have a good idea of what you would like, the consultation can also happen via the telephone, or face-to-face over Skype.
Our studio is based in Bedford, a beautiful historic town just 45 minutes north of London by train. We can meet you here during the weekends or in London during the week. Two of our favourite places to meet clients are Searcy’s Champagne bar in St Pancras Station or The Fence in Farrington, both with easy connections to trains and tubes.
To prepare for the consultation, it's good to gather images of styles that you like, and anything else that could be of inspiration. Have a chat with your partner and agree about budget. This is very helpful for us, as it will limit if/how many diamonds we can add...!
Pinterest is a great platform to share images with us this, as you can easily share the boards, but the old fashion copy-pasting of images on an email is also perfect.

CREATING YOUR UNIQUE DESIGN
Over the course of the three weeks after the consultation you will receive 2-3 draft designs. We will give you alternative options depending on the style and your budget.
We will then finalise the design according to your feedback and will refine it until you are completely happy. Don't worry, we are also quite fussy about small details. This is the perfect time to be picky and to ask lots of questions.
When everything is agreed, we confirm the order details and we ask for a 50% deposit to begin the next stage: Manufacturing your beautiful ring! At this point we are able to give you an estimated delivery time, between 6-8 weeks from payment date.
We will also ask you to double check your rings size, just to be sure. We can also re-size your engagement ring at the same time and give it a polish if it needs it, so both rings look great for the big day.
"Arabel's outstanding talent was to transform the vision I had into pure poetry. Her approach was to combine aesthetics with engineering and the result is perfect." Sigi. London
CRAFTING YOUR JEWELLERY
The making of your one-of-a-kind wedding ring begins. Through conversations with the diamond mounters and setters we finalise the technical aspect of the design.
Throughout every step of the creation process, we keep our own strict quality control. We will know your jewellery inside out.
Now, you can relax. Concentrate on all the details for the wedding, enjoy fitting wedding dresses, choosing flowers and deciding how big the cake should be. We will make sure that you rings arrives perfectly on time.
A piece of jewellery can be made using different processes: lost wax technique, totally handmade (like handmade filigree technique), CAD/CAM techniques (this means 3D drawing your design with the help of a computer and then get it 3D printed using wax), stone setting, hand engraving, laser engraving, etc... We will always use the most appropriate technique and the most skillful craftsmen to achieve the best results.
We like jewellery that is finished to perfection and we won't stop until it is 100% right.
I am fully committed to sourcing the finest materials, produced only through sustainable practices. As one of the UK’s very first Fairtrade Gold licencees in 2011, I believe that by creating our jewellery from carefully selected sustainable and traceable materials, we can offer our customers jewellery that is beautiful both inside and out, and most importantly, help make the world a better place.
