EXPERIENCE DAY 

Real life couple...

Albert & Arantza 

Albert & Arantza made each other a textured silver wedding ring.
Using different hammers they created a unique pattern on the rings to perfectly meet their partners preferences.
The rings were then engraved inside with their initials & wedding date. 

See below for more details on how to make your own wedding rings & bridal party gifts... 

EXPERIENCE DAY £360*+ MATERIALS

*To offer the most competitive quote to suit your budget all materials (precious metals) required to make your wedding rings are quoted per ring.
Please read the ADDITIONAL EXTRAS with guide costs below.​

Included within the experience day charge:

One-to-One Tuition

You will have one-to-one tuition
with me for the entire day.   

Every step of the making process will be clearly demonstrated before
you have a go yourself.   

Anything you are unsure of I will happily
step in & complete for you.  

Your wedding rings will be
professionally finished either
by you or by me.


Consultation 

Consultations should ideally take place at least 3 months before you need the completed wedding rings.  ​​

The consultation will last up to 1.5 hours. 
Consultations can take place at
weekends or week days with prior notice.

Following the consultation I will provide you with a full quote for you to approve.
It will be valid for 5 days.  

You are under no obligation to book an experience day following a consultation. 

Consultations take place at wedding fairs
or in my workshop in Chesham. ​

Experience Day

Experience days can be held on any week day or weekend with prior notice.

Hours 10am - 5pm
(including one hour lunch break).  

The experience day will be held at my  workshop in Chesham, Buckinghamshire.  

Ideally the experience day should take place  at least 2 months before you need the completed wedding rings.  

Please book early to avoid disappointment. Weekends leading up to spring/summer wedding season get very busy.

Silver Sample Ring

In order to demonstrate techniques 
I will show you how to make a
silver sample ring before working on your actual wedding rings.   

You can also practise texturing & finishes on this ring prior to committing them to your own wedding rings.

You will be able to take the
silver sample ring home with you as a memento of the day.  This sample ring will not be hallmarked.  ​

Tools

You will be shown how to use all of the
hand tools & polishing wheel prior to you trying it yourself. 

Don't worry if you've never used these tools before; they are basic & easy to use. 

Unfortunately due to insurance restrictions you will not be able to use the
hand torch for soldering. 

Light Refreshments

Throughout the day there will be a steady supply of drinks & nibbles.

We will take a one hour lunch break when you are free to venture into town to sample Chesham's cafes or restaurants.  
There are plenty to choose from & 
I can make a reservation for you depending on your preferences.

Lowndes Park is very close by if you fancy eating outside & want to bring a picnic. 

Photos of the Day

You are welcome to take  
photos & videos of you making your
wedding rings.  
I can also take some for you. 

With your permission selected images
will be posted on the 
Rosalyn's Emporium website &
social media accounts. 

Champagne & Chocolates

At the end of the experience day you will be given a bottle of champagne & local
handmade chocolates to enjoy
when you get home
(or earlier if you can't wait)!

Hallmarking

Wedding rings will be hallmarked with the
Rosalyn's Emporium 'RE' maker's mark
at the
London Assay Office.   

View the FAQ's and T&C's  
page for more information about hallmarking.

Wi-Fi

Feel free to log on to my wi-fi
during your experience day.  

Depending on whether you make your own or each other's wedding rings you may wish to relax whilst your partner is busy making. 

A selection of crafting & jewellery magazines will be available to browse through for inspiration.

Disabled Access

Regrettably due to the workshop being on the first floor I cannot offer
disabled access at present. 

Please discuss any mobility concerns with me & I will do my best to accommodate
your individual needs.

Some of the jewellery tools are portable so there may be an option for me to come to your home for part of the making process.  

Wedding Ring Box

You will receive one handmade
leather jewellery box
embossed with the
Rosalyn's Emporium logo.  

Each box can accommodate
one or two wedding rings depending
on what you make.

The insert can be removed so the box can be used to keep other precious items in once you are wearing the wedding rings.

Please also read the Frequently Asked Questions and Terms & Conditions on the FAQ's and T&C's page.

ADDITIONAL EXTRAS

To offer you the most competitive price all material costs below are quoted per wedding ring in addition to the experience day charge.  

Precious Metals

As a guide, the materials for 
 one 9ct Gold 3mm D-shape plain
wedding ring could cost £85.**

One 18ct Gold 3mm D-shape plain
wedding ring could cost £230.**

White or rose gold will be similar in price to the above but can vary slightly. 

Platinum or palladium
wedding rings can be made in silver during the experience day & then cast afterwards in your chosen metal.  

One platinum 3mm D-shape plain wedding ring could cost £315.**

One palladium 950 3mm D-shape wedding ring could cost £155.**


FAIRTRADE GOLD:
Available in 18ct Yellow or
18ct White Gold. 
Please ask for details & current prices.

All quotes are valid for 5 days only due to metal prices changing.

Plating

Finished rings can be plated in another colour or metal type.

Options are:
white or black rhodium
yellow, white or rose gold

Plating for
one plain wedding ring is **£45.

Most ready-made white gold engagement rings are rhodium plated so once you see the white gold wedding ring in its natural state you will notice the difference.

For the same price your engagement ring can be rhodium plated if you would like to freshen it up ready for your wedding day.

Note that it is normal for plating to wear off over time & you may want to consider replating annually to refresh your rings. 
I am happy to do this for you for the same cost as above.

Engraving

Engraving inside rings 
up to 10 characters is **£18 per ring.

The font choice is a standard
block or script style. 

Patterns on the outside of
your wedding rings can also be engraved.  

You can find an existing design or you can design your own. I can help you with this if you are stuck for ideas. 

Hand engraving on the outside of your ring is from **£55 per ring depending on
 size & design required.

**in addition to the experience day charge.
(guide prices correct from January 2017)

Bridal Party Gifts

If you love the idea of making your own wedding rings you might also love the idea of making your own bridal party gifts.

Ideal for bridesmaids, best-man or parents.

Up to 4 items below, in addition to a pair of wedding rings, can be made & personalised by you during the experience day.

Prices below include a gift box & bag.
These items are below the hallmarking weight so you can take them home at the end of your experience day.

Silver 18" chain with round or square
silver pendant £25**

Silver 18" chain with round or square
9ct Gold pendant £50**

Silver round or square cufflinks £45** a pair

Precious Stones

​Stones can be set in plain, simply shaped wedding rings that you've made yourself after the experience day.
Costs will be included within your quote.  

If you want something more complicated then it may need to be treated as a
bespoke commission.

I will advise you if I think any element of your wedding ring design will need to be completed outside of your experience day. 


Recycle Jewellery

Existing hallmarked gold jewellery can be melted down, re-formed & used again.

Stones can be removed &
reset into new pieces. 

Depending on the amount of gold you want to recycle & what you want to make this can be used in full for the new item or
additional gold added to it. 

If you simply just want money for your recycled jewellery I can also arrange
this for you by sending your items to my bullion dealers.  

I charge a £20 admin &
special delivery postage charge for this.

The remaining money will be returned to you. Gold prices change daily so I can advise you at the time of an estimated value once the weight & gold carat of the jewellery is confirmed.
