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.


Experience Day

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

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

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

Ideally the experience day should take place  at least 3 months before you need the completed wedding rings.  

Please book early to avoid disappointment. Weekends get booked up very quickly.

Consultation 

Consultations ideally take place at least 6 months before you need the completed wedding rings. They can take place at wedding fairs (see home page)
or in my workshop in Chesham. ​

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

If you can not attend a consultation in person we can establish most details over email or phone calls too.  I can post you a ring sizer to double check measurements are accurate before quoting you. 

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. 

Local Treats

At the end of the experience day you
will be given some locally
sourced treats from other businesses
I want to recommend to you.
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.

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  ring 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.

+ MATERIALS

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 Cost Examples

EXAMPLE COSTS PER RING BASED ON A LARGE FINGER SIZE 

 1 x 9ct Gold 3mm D-shape  £105**

1 x  18ct Gold 3mm D-shape  £250**

9ct & 18ct white or rose gold will be similar in price to the above but can vary from yellow.  

Platinum & Palladium are much harder to work in then gold.
If you require these metals you will make a 'master' ring from silver during the experience day.
The master rings will then be sent away to be moulded & cast in your chosen metal.  You will get to keep the original silver master rings too. 
The cast rings will be finished by you during a follow up appointment so you still have a part in the final rings. 

1 x Platinum 3mm D-shape £450** + 2.5 hours £130 finishing charge

1 x  Palladium 950 3mm D-shape  £320** + 2.5 hours £130 finishing charge

Available in 18ct Yellow or 18ct White Gold.

I will personally choose stones for you from my
Hatton Garden dealers.

Depending on the stones required you might be able to view & chose your own from a selection I pre-select for you. 

Options for stones are almost endless.
Different stones have different qualities & meanings which might have an influence over what you need.

I can advise you on the best stones to suit your
ring design, lifestyle & budget.  


REMODEL
From £70** dependant on the amount to recycle & how it needs to be reformed.
Stones can also be removed & reset into new pieces. 
I can not remodel Platinum or Palladium jewellery, only hallmarked Gold & Silver.

don't have enough to make what you want. 

SCRAP
​I charge a £30 admin & special delivery postage charge to scrap your existing jewellery with my bullion dealers.
