Forming one of our regular updates to both the main information page, about shaped wedding rings, and our related posts, today’s blog features one of the more recent wedding ring commissions produced for a local couple who returned to commission a suitable wedding ring for their three stone ‘Trilogy’ style cluster.

Designs Inspired by Existing Patterns

The above shaped wedding ring began as a suggestion based around RWD025 but the width was unsuitable to give enough space to allow both rings to fit together. Shaping a wedding ring design on one side only (leaving the other straight) involves creating a wider design to allow for this one flat edge. This is especially true for the above ring, which featured a 1 carat set of diamonds, with a prominent setting. Adding a subtle feature like the raised edge has a greater effect, and the overall combination of the two rings reflects balance as both rings are equally weighted and proportioned.

The Process – How the Ring is Achieved

We begin by first consultation, face-to-face or by email, with photos of the engagement ring sent over to us. We advise on suitable styles, sizes, materials and costs. We ideally need the ring itself to create a specially carved wax model of the ring – this we can send for approval, or photograph along with your ring for a better idea once made. When the model is cast in the chosen metal, the ring moves into the last stages, ultimately receiving the last mirror polish. A last check to ensure both rings fit, before we confirm completion. The process itself can take anywhere from 3 – 5 weeks depending on the complexity and process, but we advise beforehand. Allowing that little extra time before your wedding day makes best sense. This also allows any extra time if we have to make further adjustments based on preferences following this end stage.

But What About Other Styles for Three Stone Rings?

The above shaped wedding ring was created to gently curve, in the same way as the engagement ring band itself.

There are so many possibilities. The image above shows a modern graduated three stone ring, with a shaped wedding ring gently curving around the outline of the design. Just another suggestion, among many possible designs. Remember though, your engagement ring shape will be the main factor limiting the range of designs possible.
