Earlier in the summer my friend asked me to make him wedding rings (which I did, of course!). This got me thinking about wedding rings and what I like in a wedding ring. Not surprisingly, I like ones that are just a little different – maybe with texture, color or an interesting shape.
For an affordable option, I designed this sterling silver band. It has a nice domed shape, and because it is silver it can be more substantial for less money (than one in gold). The Firepan touch on this ring is the light planishing (hammer finish) which gives a subtle pebble finish to the ring. This causes the light to be reflected in a more interesting way, than a plain smooth finish – yet, it is subtle.
I was waiting, and waiting, and waiting for the price of gold to go down.
Finally, when I had to order some gold for a ring repair I bit the bullet and ordered some for me (even though it hadn’t gone down!), so that I could make these rings as samples. This time the hammer finish is done using a different hammer, leaving a substantial texture.
I’m very happy with how they turned out. They really look fantastic on!
So, if you (or someone you know) is looking to put a ring on it… I have these semi-custom styles to chose from now! Of course, if you’d like custom wedding rings designed for you that’s always available too!
Hope you are well!
