These wedding rings are made to a viking theme, one more so than the other. They are made from different white gold alloys, the man’s ring containing palladium to give it a darker, warmer tone. Hers is a simple slender band shaped to fit her engagement ring, inside is her husband’s name engraved in runes, and on his, her name is engraved on the outside in runes. They had quite similar names, so I had to be very careful to get them right. It’s quite a bit harder in another alphabet! His ring has a rivet that was made from a peg of metal I cast onto the side of hers. It’s a really complicated way of getting a little bit of white gold, but I’ve always loved the symbolism of using metal from the other ring. We spent quite a while finalising the finish on his ring. It had to look old and beaten up, which always sounds so much easier than it is. There are millions of ways of making something look old, all of which are a bit different, and deliberately doing something to look random is a knack. It’s got partially brushed off black rhodium to add to the aged feel and enhance the runes.

Some twisted billets for some 18 karat white and yellow gold vein rings. These now need to be rolled out and made into rings.

This is quite a chunky signet ring, with the head about 18mm across. It’s chamfered edge gives it a shape a bit like a wrist watch where it meets the band. I’ve made two of these now, with different designs on top. This one is a man’s business logo. I sculpt these in wax for casting then re engrave over the design. This gives the advantage that I can double check the layout in three dimensions in the wax, which is much cheaper and easier to change than the metal. However the engraving then sharpens up the design on the head and makes it harder and more hard wearing.
