Frequently Asked Questions

Do you really hand-craft all your rings or are any from pre-purchased items (ie ring blanks)?


I can proudly confirm that all of my rings are hand-crafted and start off from a solid bar of stainless steel. These is a summary of the stages that I work through for every ring:

  • Solid stainless steel bar is turned by lathe to form the initial ring blank
  • Further turning then takes place to adjust the ring to the required size
  • Interior of the ring is prepared with comfort fit and brushed finish
  • Sides of the ring are then sanded and polished
  • I then create the specified inlay including any effects (if applicable)
  • Inlay material is applied (if applicable)
  • Initial quality inspection takes place
  • Exterior and inlay are shaped
  • Entire ring is then sanded, polished and buffed
  • Final quality inspection
  • Ring is gift boxed




What does 'Ring width' mean?


This is the measurement of the distance across the ring – See ‘C’ on the ‘ Ring Size Guide’. The minimum and maximum width can vary depending on ring design, please refer to the specific guidance for each ring ‘Customisation Options’. I would also encourage you to speak to me about the specifications so that together we can design a ring that best suits you.




What does 'Ring thickness' mean?


This is the measurement of the depth of the ring (ie how far the ring stands out from your finger) – See ‘B’ on the ‘ Ring Size Guide’. The minimum and maximum width can vary depending on ring design, please refer to the specific guidance for each ring ‘Customisation Options’. I would also encourage you to speak to me about the specifications so that together we can design a ring that best suits you.




What does 'Inlay width' mean?


This is internal measurement of the distance across the ring width that your specified inlay material will fill – See ‘D’ on the ‘ Ring Size Guide’.
It is recommended to leave at least a 1.00mm gap to allow the ring bands to be shaped. As an example, an 8.0mm ring width with a 5.0mm to 6.0mm inlay width would work well. I would also encourage you to speak to me about the specifications so that together we can design a ring that best suits you.




What types of materials and colours can I specify?


I have listed some examples within each ring design under the ‘Customisation Options’, however l love nothing more than a challenge. As long as it is legal and it will physically fit into a ring I’m willing to create this for you.

Any shade of any colour can be incorporated, the more detail you can give me (ie. Pantone/RGB colour) the better. Please be aware that all screens display colour differently.
I would also encourage you to speak to me about the specifications so that together we can design a ring that best suits you.




What type and size of symbols can I specify?


I can work with any choice of symbol you choose. As long as it is legal and it will physically fit into a ring I’m willing to incorporate this for you. The size very much depends on your choice of ring and inlay width. I would also encourage you to speak to me about your ideas as I’m more than happy to work with you to find a suitable solution.
