Why Choose the Wishbone Style?

If you’re engagement ring does not warrant a shaped wedding ring, the wishbone style will work beautifully adding more interest than a conventional straight wedding band. A large solitaire diamond can partially obscure diamonds within a straight wedding ring, whereas the diamond wishbone wedding rings expose the middle diamonds of a channel setting. The design will also work well specifically where a shaped wedding ring is required.

Commissioning a perfectly matching wishbone shaped wedding ring.

Asked recently where the Wishbone shaped wedding rings were on our website, my reply came as, “There aren’t any,” and so I went on to explain why this was. (This also goes for many of the shaped wedding rings styles.)

There are so many websites, and jewellery companies offering shaped wedding rings. Many websites show plenty of styles but how do you know which one will match your own ring? Many of these specifically match existing engagement ring styles, not necessarily your own. A close match does not mean a perfect match. Purchasing an ill-fitting wedding ring is easily done. Both the cost and the years of wear, suggest that it will be wise to take time to ensure that the wedding ring is perfect. There are a few ways to ensure things are just right.

Sample wedding rings for off-the-shelf designs.

Diamond wishbone shaped wedding rings do exist as standard styles. Some companies offer sample rings. Obtaining a sample of the ring, before purchasing the genuine item will enable you to try the ring first. Most companies offering this service need a deposit in advance. The main disadvantage is that the sample will rarely be in your finger size and this can influence how both rings fit together. This can result in an inaccurate fit, compared to rings of equal finger size.

Bespoke Design

This example usually requires you to send in your ring. We offer this service on a daily basis, creating a model to fit alongside. The advantages make this system one of the best methods for gaining a perfect fitting wedding ring. We have covered examples and advice on how to arrange this, within our shop information section. Initially we create a wax model in your chosen design to fit around the engagement ring. This can be photographed or sent to you for approval. The ring is then manufactured, with great attention to detail, resulting in a beautifully finished ring. The above design is one of the diamond wishbone wedding rings created in a recent commission.

Including Diamonds?

We love attention to detail, and part of our process involves matching both the colour and clarity of your engagement ring diamond(s) to your new wedding ring. This might seem like a small detail, but it is certainly an important consideration.

Client comments

We always try to get things 100% right for each client. Communication is so important and we pride ourselves on how we work with clients on custom-made wedding rings. Within recent feedback from one such commission, (the ring above) one of our lovely clients provided this kind comment, which we were very moved by.

“The only thing better than the rings we brought from Serendipity was the customer service”
