Full Description
With over 15 years experience of making wedding rings Roz from Rosalyn's Emporium is well placed to teach you to make your own. The experience day is aimed at a beginner level so ideal for all couples who love the idea of hand making their own or partner's wedding ring. Roz will guide you through each step using a silver sample ring to demonstrate on, allowing you to try each technique before applying to your own wedding ring. You can make wedding rings directly in 9ct, 18ct, yellow, white or rose gold or silver. Platinum or palladium wedding rings will be made by you in silver first & then cast in your chosen metal after the experience day. You can also recycle your own gold & gems to make into new jewellery. Engraving, stone setting, black or white rhodium plating are all additional extras. During the experience day there is normally time to make up to 4 bridal party gifts such as pendants or cuff-links. If you want to make something else please do ask for advice & it will be accommodated if possible. Following a consultation with Roz you will be provided with a quote tailored to your specific needs & budget. Included in the experience day rate is one-to-one tuition, one silver sample ring, 20-30 photos of you making the rings, one leather ring box, light refreshments, a bottle of champagne & locally hand-made chocolates to take home & enjoy at your leisure. In addition to the experience day rate is the cost for the materials to make your wedding rings & any additional extras or bridal party gifts you wish to make. Refer to Rosalyn's Emporium website for current cost examples & experience day rate. If you don't fancy making them yourself Roz offers a bespoke jewellery service for wedding rings & other jewellery pieces. Rosalyn's Emporium is based in Chesham, Buckinghamshire. Conveniently Chesham is at the end of the Metropolitan tube line if travelling via London & a short distance from the M1, M25 & M40 if travelling by road.

She has made the whole process joyous and magical
I could not recommend Rosalyn's Emporium enough. We decided to go with an independent buisness to hand make our wedding bands. Roz has been amazing throughout, from design ideas, consultations and check ins to let us know how our rings were getting on. Thought the COVID pandemic she has made the whole process joyous and magical. We are over the moon with the finished pieces. They are even better than we ever imaged and cant wait for our big day to finally be able to wear them! I would recommend Rosalyn's Emporium to anyone. Thank you so much!! x

We made our wedding rings from recycled jewellery
Working with Roz to make our wedding rings has been one of the best experiences of our wedding preparations. We made our wedding rings from recycled jewellery and also gifts for the bridesmaids, best man and our fathers and a necklace for my wedding day. We are absolutely over the moon with how everything has turned out. We cannot wait for our wedding day when we can finally give everyone their presents and start wearing our rings! The designs that Roz worked with us to come up with are just brilliant and so personal and the hand engraving is amazing. Such a memorable process and the experience day was so special. Working with Roz and having wedding rings that we made has really lifted our spirits during some tough months of Covid-plagued wedding planning! Thank you Roz

Roz went above and beyond...
My partner and I deisgned and made our wedding bands with Roz's help, and we even got to make gifts for the groomsmen and bridal party. Roz went above and beyond and answered all our questions to make sure our rings and accessories were perfect. And the work was enjoyable, I would do it all again!

Impressed with Roz's knowledge & professional mann
We contacted Ros to design & make a bespoke Engagement Ring. From the initial call to discuss the design we were both thoroughly impressed with Roz's knowledge & professional manner. She made the whole design process feel very personal & really brought you along with the whole experience. The final design was a skull & ivy combination & we were couldn't be happier with the intracicies & delicate nature of the end piece. We highly recomend her & her service.

Bored of the bog standard...give Roz a buzz.
“A friend of mine and her husband had made their own wedding rings and I thought this was a lovely idea. I did some research on a couple of places and we found Roz’ Emporium via Bridebook.com. We arrived at her workshop and immediately liked Roz. She is positively lovely and made us feel welcome straight away. I have to admit that was a little nervous about the possibility of wrecking what would normally be a regular wedding ring and she really put me at ease. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. Her workshop is really original and more personal than a more mainstream impersonal place. Taking a simple sheet of metal and creating our own design was fantastic. She walked us through every step of the process and gave us ideas on how we could make something a little different. It suited me down to the ground because I tend to like my jewellery to be more original. We had so much fun and got to know her well over the process. She also helped us make some cufflinks for the father of the bride. We actually started making the rings on quite a tight timeline and she managed to get them to us with 1 week to spare before we had to travel up North for our wedding. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to make their own bespoke jewellery or wedding rings with the guidance of a friendly, original and a real expert to contact Roz. It really was a fun and amazing experience. She is really chatty too and offers copious amounts of tea and biccies. My wedding ring is truly original and fits perfectly around my engagement ring. I have had so many comments about how original and me it is. She offers anything from the more traditional type of ring to something a little different. If you’re bored of the bog standard and want your personality to shine through your jewellery, you should give Roz a buzz."

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

It has to be my own I think. Our wedding day was relaxed with a lot of details hand-made by ourselves or family & this reflects in our handmade engagement & wedding rings which I made for us. I've since altered my husbands wedding ring twice & my own once so I like to think they keep up with our growing & changing relationship. Maybe we will add to them still in years to come...

My own.... my husband proposed with a little charm ring so that I could design & make my own engagement ring.
