“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.”

[Jimmy Johnson]

Choosing to transform an ordinary wedding ring

No person wants (just) ordinary. Despite a certain desire for simplicity, when it comes to a wedding ring, classic, simple and understated are all desirable descriptions. But not ordinary.

If you are looking for are looking to make an ordinary wedding ring—extraordinary then all it takes is a little extra.

Available to each client at Serendipity Diamonds, we provide unique personalisation in the form of writing, fingerprints or characters. These can be applied to any wedding ring at purchase. Furthermore, the cost is a small addition—this can be seen via the customise with engraving menu on our product pages.

Making Ordinary Extraordinary

A plain wedding ring can be radically transformed into an extraordinary design—uniquely customised to a person. Options include dates, wording, handwritten messages scribed onto the ring, fingerprints and limitless ideas ready to be transformed from your mind onto the physical ring.

Extraordinary fonts and typefaces for wedding rings

Many of our most unique wedding ring commissions are based around plain wedding rings, transformed with detail by precision laser engraving. We give great consideration to fonts, ring widths spacing and the final polish to ensure gleaming results.

His and His / Hers and Hers Wedding Rings

A proportion of our wedding ring sets are for same sex marriages and partnerships. His and his wedding rings can be created in single or multiple metal combinations, with or without engravings. These can be transformed by the addition of ones own fingerprint to the surface of the wedding ring design, inside or out.
