WEDDING RING WORKSHOPS
£180 PER COUPLE (+METAL) / LONDON & SOMERSET
Ever dreamed about making your own wedding rings, but didn’t know where to start? A Roderick Vere Wedding Ring Workshop is the perfect hands-on experience for couples wanting to design and create their very own bespoke wedding rings. Not only will you walk away with a pair of rings that you made from scratch, but you’ll create memories that will last a lifetime.
We start all of our wedding ring workshops a month or two beforehand with an an informal discussion about the types of rings you’ll be able to achieve, the styles you like (and those you don’t) as well as what to expect from the actual workshop. We’ll show you some samples, measure your ring finger and follow up with a couple of quotes based upon your metal and style choices.
As for the day of the workshop, we begin your three-hour session with a tea or coffee and a health & safety briefing before getting started on a sterling silver practice ring to build your confidence. Once everyone’s happy with how things are going, we’ll move on to the gold. Whatever your competency level, you’ll be led step-by-step through the process by an expert jeweller who’ll be on hand at all times to make sure things are running smoothly. Once you’ve completed your rings we’ll celebrate with a glass of bubbly!
At the end of your workshop your rings will be sent off for assay and hallmarking before being returned to you in a stylish double ring box.
