The bride-to-be decided on a white gold ring and the groom, a plain platinum wedding band. Here’s a quick glimpse of how their wedding rings are looking at this early stage. They are not pretty but I promise they will be soon.I also give a brief update on the bracelet commission I shared recently, all coming along nicely.

With just a couple of weeks left to deliver to my customers in the UK, The United States or Canada, the pressure was on. All of my jewelry is handcrafted, stamped with my makers mark and hallmarked in Dublin Castle, you can imagine it was a little nerve wrecking. I am glad to report they arrived safely back to the workshop the next day. In the video I also briefly explain what what the process entails.
Finally I share two other Wedding ring designs I worked on recently. Both of these Irish wedding ring designs are available on my online shop so it was simply a case of creating these for the couples and
