I was recently asked to make a pair of complimentary wedding rings from silver, with a hammered texture.
far, so right up my street - I love hitting stuff with hammers. The
slightly tricky part was that the bride's ring had to fit around her
engagement ring, which had a large, emerald cut stone. Having done some
googling on shaped wedding rings for emerald cut stones, I drew a bit
of a blank, as most wedding rings for this rectangular shape of stone
are flat bands that fit under the stone, rather than going around it.
Carving the band so the setting fitted perfectly into it was definitely a challenge, but it turned out really well I think.
rectangular shape and squared off style looks quite art deco, and would
look great with a matching shaped diamond eternity ring on the top.
The groom's ring was much easier!
