You may already have a preference for chunky or dainty jewellery. That is a good place to start. If trying a selection of rings on isn’t an option, a good exercise can be done with twigs or paper. Cut a few strips of paper in different widths and see how they look on your hand. While it is very rudimentary it’s actually quite effective!
When choosing a ring, it’s good practice to have guide prices for the pieces that are catching your eye. If you have a set budget, mention it to us. We always strive to work within our customers budget and can often offer suggestions on variations to reduce cost. Ultimately we want you to end up with a ring that suits you, your lifestyle and your wallet.
Ring sizing is tricky. Most fingers change shape and fluctuate in size throughout the day and different temperatures. If you have a ring that fits – that is perfect! We can take the size from it. If you have never worn a ring and have no clue on your size, we’d recommend ordering a set of ring sizers online (sadly we don’t have enough sets to send to everyone!). Choose a set that is made from a hard material, anything flexible won’t give you an accurate size. Also try to choose sizers that are a similar width to the ring you would like. We are always happy to help over the phone.
Personalisation – Own twig
You can actually send us your own twigs! It’s a lovely way of adding a unique and personal touch.
Perhaps your partner proposed to you in the park? Your ring could be cast with the vary same twig from that tree. Read about how to chose the perfect twig in our bespoke service page.
The lovely thing about our jewellery is that at a glance your ring may look like a simple band; however, when you look closely, you can make out the subtle texture of the twig.
Gemstones are a great way of adding a bit of sparkle or colour to your ring. They can also be very symbolic, such as adding birthstones to represent loved ones. This is a lovely touch if you have kids, as a way of including them in your design. Gemstones can be added to your ring design is a variety of styles, from a simple cast in situ setting (sapphires only) to a claw setting. Other options include a starry scatter of stones around the ring or little bead set diamonds in the crevices of the twig.
