I was recently asked to make a pair of complimentary wedding rings from silver, with a hammered texture.
So far, so right up my street – I love hitting stuff with hammers. The slightly tricky part was that the bride’s ring had to fit around her engagement ring, which had a large, emerald cut stone. Having done some googling on shaped wedding rings for emerald cut stones, I drew a bit of a blank, as most wedding rings for this rectangular shape of stone are flat bands that fit under the stone, rather than going around it.
Carving the band so the setting fitted perfectly into it was definitely a challenge, but it turned out really well I think.
The rectangular shape and squared off style looks quite art deco, and would look great with a matching shaped diamond eternity ring on the top.
The groom’s ring was much easier!
