I love the warmth or red gold and with diamonds it adds an extra shine. Here is a Gretna Green Anvil wedding ring made in 18ct rose gold with diamonds set on either side.
I make these wedding bands in a heavy court style which have a good depth so the diamonds do not show through the back.
The ring seen here is 6mm and but I can make this range from 4mm to 8mm with diamonds. The design works well as a matching set and is also available in yellow, white gold and platinum.

Hope you like the photos , Richard.
Just made this one for April. I am hoping to have another 10 made soon but cant get to them for brides wanting bands LOL. shouldn’t complain with being so busy.
Diamond is 1.46ct natural raw black and is a nice kite shape. Made this in rose gold as it seems to set well against the black colour. Rustic texture to finish the band off. Hope you like the pics.
If you want you can see it here with some other rings
Pebble Beach design with textured outside and matt brushed inside finish.
This band is available in yellow and white gold, platinum and silver. I make this from 2mm to 8mm widths
This wedding band is made in my own workshop and is not available from a high street jeweller.
A design for an individual or couple looking for something unique. Inspired from the pebble beach at St Bees head in Cumbria.
Water Reeds wedding band with an oxidised textured and matt finish.
I made this band from a 8mm wide silver flat band. The idea came from seeing the water reeds you can see on Lake Windermere in Cumbria.
Each one is made with a unique pattern handstruck on every ring so no one will look the same.
The wedding ring is made to order and you can order it from any of my shops. I was very pleased with the photos of the band which gives a very realistic view of what the ring looks like.
Sunrise View wedding band with a rustic finish and matt brushed inside. Made from 22ct gold and silver.
This ring is 8mm wide but also comes in other widths from 4mm to 6mm.
I was making this at the start of the day, and it remined me of the sun as it rose over the Lake District peaks. I can see them through my window and it seemed an appropriate name for the wedding band.
So here are the photos of the new wedding band.
Wedding band season is on us again and I am stupidly busy in the workshop with lots of couples wanting handmade wedding rings.
However I am always getting asked about engagement bands since I introduced my range last year.
So here are two I have just made with hopefully some more to follow. I also have a beautiful raw 6.1ct Tanzanite in but I am still thinking what to do with that stone.
Hope you like the photos. If you want to see more if the rings visit here.
I have had pretty good success with a number of my new designs I introduced last year. Here are a few of my favourite wedding ring styles I made.
Rustic Earth was fun to do and was well received although the number of rings written off in the testing stage was a bit daunting until I had it just right.
Water Ripples came in spring and was inspired by the pond I have at home. Very popular in platinum many brides are wearing one now.
Rustic Black and Gold was my way out new design for the year and was a big hit in the States and Australia. A devil to make but very satisfying in the end.
The latest design Snow Track that I just finished is showing a lot of promise and I have high hopes with it for this year.
There was a number of other wedding ring new styles I brought out and amazingly all sold but the ones above stand out in my mind.
I am now working on a few new ideas for this year and continuing to make my new range of raw engagement rings which seem to go as soon as I make them.
So back to the workshop and see what I design I am going to do next, but first I need my cup of tea.
I am starting to add some wedding ring sets for the New Year. Lots or people have been asking me if one wedding ring or another has a matching partner.
So I am going to start off with some classic designs and add some of the newer designer styles in the next few months.
To do this I have started a new photo shoot showing the two rings together. Here is the set for an 18ct pair of court polished wedding bands.
They were shot on a black background which looks very effective.
You can now buy these rings on my Gretna Green website.
I am always on the look out for something a little different. Here is some blue quartz Stalagmites that have been cut and polished.
They are about 2.5cm in diameter and I have had them drilled so I can hang them as necklaces .
The chains are silver and around 18 inches long.
Something to brighten the winter months.
So it`s getting close to christmas season again, where did the year go. For me it has been the fastest year ever with finishing my retail shop in January and becoming a pure internet business.
I have always wanted to do this for years and I now have the time to get back to the workshops to make my own designs.
Here is some new ones made this week. I have been so busy with engagement and wedding bands I thought I would take a break and make some pendants. You can only set so many diamonds in the same week before you go cross eyed.
See the pendants here. Hope you like them, Richard.
