You don't need any experience to make your own wedding rings, as our professional jewellers will take you through the whole process step-by-step.

They will advise and guide you in the comfort of our brand-new studio, which will be exclusively yours for the whole day.

You can make each other’s wedding rings or create your own. It's entirely up to you. We will do our best to incorporate any personal design requests you might have, like making the wedding band fit your engagement ring (if this is possible).


Designing And Making Your Wedding Bands

Making your own wedding rings is a unique and memorable experience to share as a couple as you shape the bands that represent your bond and love for each other.

We consider it a privilege to share to be a part of that and to help you design and create the perfect wedding rings for your special day.

Making A Wedding Ring With Orla James

As part of the experience, we provide a luxury lunch and tea and coffee throughout the day.

Once you have completed your rings, we will present you with a bottle of fizz to take away and toast your creative achievements.

Your rings will be sent off securely to be officially Hallmarked. Depending on the design, they will be ready within two to three weeks.

The wedding bands will be presented in formal ring boxes - just as they would if you had ordered them - to keep them safe and secure until the day of the wedding.

Memories to look back on

We can provide photography on the day if you want to have souvenir photographs of you both at work on your rings.

The pictures can make excellent keepsakes to share with friends and family.

You may even want to include them in your wedding album.

Design And Make Your Own Wedding Rings: FAQs


These are just a small selection of frequently asked questions.

To read more, head to our What Would You Like To Know? page.

We don’t have any previous jewellery design experience: does this matter?

Absolutely not. Most couples who enjoy our wedding ring design and creation process have never done anything like this before. You will be well looked after by our expert jewellery designers. They can help you as much or as little as you like throughout the process.

How long does it take?

From designing to actually making your wedding rings, the whole process takes one day (usually 9 am to 5 pm).

If you are travelling from further afield – or want to make more of a weekend of it – you could always consider booking yourselves a short relaxing break. We are very close to the sea and a short drive from vibrant Brighton, where there is plenty to do and see on a weekend visit.

I would like to surprise my partner: can I come and make the wedding rings on my own?

Absolutely. We get quite a few people who would like to surprise their partner this way. All you will need is their ring size and – preferably – an idea of what wedding ring design they would like to ensure we can help you make the perfect band.

Are refreshments provided on the day?

Yes, we provide a luxury lunch for you and your partner in addition to tea and coffee throughout the day.

How much does designing and making our wedding rings with Orla James cost?

There are many different variables to consider when it comes to pricing, such as:

- The band material (gold, silver or platinum)
- The complexity of your ring designs
