Shaped wedding rings

Rings By Design create shaped wedding rings that fit around your perfect engagement ring.

We work with you to design a bespoke wedding ring, ensuring you’re happy with the fit and the design. Based in the North East, we offer home consultations, face-to-face consultations at our workshop as well online consultations. We also offer nationwide consults virtually too, so book an appointment today.

step one design ideas for your wedding ring

Step One

Fill out our contact form with some details of the ring you’re looking for and we’ll send you back an approximate quotation so you can be confident we can make you a ring that’s within budget.

The information we’ll need is the preferred metal type, the approx. width of the band & if you want diamonds approx. how many & how big.

If you haven’t got a clue about any of that stuff then don’t worry, just jump straight to Step 2.

Rings By Design Kit

Step Two

Book a free, no-obligation consultation to explore design ideas and preferences further. We can do consultations in your home if you live in North East England, in our workshop, or virtually via Zoom or Skype if you live further afield.

Step three bespoke wedding ring kit

Step Three

Let’s consult! We’ll work through the design process with you from start to finish using our sample rings to explore what you do and don’t like.

When we know exactly what you’re looking for we’ll provide you with a detailed quotation and guarantee the price for at least 7 days.

For home visits we’ll bring our sample rings & equipment with us. For virtual appointments we’ll post the kit and samples out subject to £100 deposit which is refundable when the kit is returned.

Step three building your bespoke Ring

Step Four

Once you’re happy with your bespoke shape-around ring design, we’ll take a deposit and then we’ll start work. First off we create a resin model and send you this to check against your engagement ring. If you’re happy with the shape and stone placements etc., we’ll go to cast. If you feel some adjustments are necessary, we can incorporate those before proceeding further.

Personalised with your signature

As unique as your bespoke wedding ring will be to you, adding a personalised touch is just that little more special. As part of your design process you will have the option to personalise your wedding ring. You can add a fingerprint or a special word, speak to us for more information.

Frequently asked questions

Will you need my engagement ring?

We hardly ever need to take your engagement ring from you. We have perfected a technique to record the profile of your engagement ring during your consultation which means you don’t need to part with your ring.

We design your wedding ring to fit around the engagement ring profile using Computer Aided design Software and then print out a resin model.

We send you the model to check against your engagement ring to make sure the two fit perfectly together and only after you’ve confirmed that you are happy do we cast the actual ring in the metal of your choice.

What if my resin model doesn’t sit well against my engagement ring

Whilst 99% of customers are happy with the way the resin model fits against their engagement ring when they receive it occasionally the fit just isn’t quite right.

If you happen to be in the 1% there’s no need to panic. If you’re able to bring your engagement ring into the workshop it often only takes a tiny adjustment to the resin model to get the fit spot on.

If you live too far away to bring your engagement ring in we’ll do a Zoom or Skype call to identify what adjustments are required. We’ll then adjust the CAD design & send you a new resin model to check that the problem is solved.

In the unlikely event that we can’t get the fit just as you would like it then you will be free to cancel the order without penalty and we’ll refund in full any money you’ve already paid against that particular ring. Rest assured though this is something we rarely need to do.

I would definitely recommend Rings by Design. I phoned to query getting my engagement ring cleaned ready for my wedding... and the gentleman was very helpful. He booked an appointment the same day and at a very reasonable price! He cleaned while I waited and to say I was happy with the results is an understatement, it looks brand new! They make some gorgeous pieces of jewellery too and I couldn't resist treating myself to a beautiful bracelet. Me and my partner will definitely be returning to get our rings cleaned in the future.read more

Amazing service. Used Rings by Design 10 years ago for my engagement and wedding rings and returned to them now for my... eternity ring. It’s exactly what I wanted and it’s fits with my other rings perfectly. Very efficient, especially to say we are not in the North East and were meeting via Zoom! Thank you so much, Jo and Jonathan Thompson.read more

I called up today after having an online chat. I was wanting a stone resetting in a new ring after being told it... couldn't be resized elsewhere. Graham took one look and resized it for me and it now fits perfectly. Not only did he save me a few hundred quid, he also made it possible to keep the entire ring original like my Grandad had it. Thankyou pads, highly recommended.read more

Brilliant service, I’ve got to many high streets to be told I can only get my ring stretched and no where does re... sizing with a piece added. Found these guys - I was booked in straight away, brilliant service and customer service. My engagement ring was resized up to 4 sizes, no marks or anything can’t see where the the piece went in. Absolutely amazing. Will defiantly be using the service again 😁 so happy after not wearing my ring for the last 6 month - done it while waiting. Took around 15-20 mins. Over the moon thank you 🥰read more

Over 2 years ago we met Ian at a wedding fair at Hardwick Hall. After an initial consultation we knew that this was the... company we would entrust to make our custom wedding rings (with mine to fit around my engagement ring). We were not disappointed! Communication was fantastic between Ian, Graham and ourselves. Clear pricing and every effort made to ensure that our wedding rings were exactly what we wanted. They listened, measured and created a thing of beauty... well 3 things actually... On 8/11/19 we finally said "I do" and I could not be happier with our rings. I can't stop looking at them. Thank you both so, so much! David & Joanne xread more

Graham made our wedding rings almost 13 years ago and did a fabulous job. We have just taken them to be resized after... years of not wearing them and he has done an amazing job again at a very very good price! I didn’t think it would be possible due to the design so I am delighted he has made it possible for us to wear them again! I highly recommend you design and have rings made here and I also recommend any other services provided! Thanks so much Graham!read more

My wife was devasated when she lost one of the diamonds from her engagement ring after 44 years. Contacted Rings by... Design as they had made our daughter's wedding ring a few years ago. We made an appointment today and went along. The service was brilliant - Graham checked the ring, assessed the damage and quoted us for the repair and replacement diamond. Amazingly he was able to offer to do it there and then in about 15minutes. At the end of a relatively short visit the ring had been repaired, the diamond replaced and the whole thing cleaned and sparkling again - with minimal damage to the bank account!!! I would heartily recommend this company to anyone with any problems with jewellery or wanting to have an item made up to their own specifications. Excellent service - Thank you.read more

Rings by Design made both of our wedding rings and we absolutely love them! Through every step of the process the team... were brilliant. The consultation was friendly, professional, both Ian & Graham were highly knowledgeable and supported us throughout. The price was very reasonable too! My engagement ring is an unusual shape so we had to have my wedding ring moulded to fit. Nothing was too much trouble they made me two different moulds in wax to make sure I was happy with the design I chose. The finished rings are stunning! My wedding & engagement ring fit together perfectly & it looks even better than I imagined! My husbands ring was made exactly how he wanted it, from the metal, fit, design to the finish. Rings by Design are simply brilliant and we would highly recommend them!!!read more

We booked the workshop to make our own wedding rings and it was a wonderful day from start to finish. Graham had all... the time in the world for us during our consultation, where he took time to explain about the different shapes of rings and metals we could use to make them. During the workshop we were shown how to make our rings step by step and the whole time Graham was extremely patient with us, never stepping in to take the rings off us, and allowing us to complete the process by following his examples.Extra touches were added by Ian to make it feel special, who took photos all throughout the experience and we were even offered a glass of prosecco to celebrate at the end.We thoroughly enjoyed our day, and would highly recommend Rings By Design if you're looking for this type of experience.read more

Just picked up our wedding rings and could not be happier. The time and attention that Ian put into our consultation... has meant we've both ended up with a completely unique, bespoke wedding ring. Mine is the exact ring I wanted but had been unable to find in shops, and having it made by this company meant I was also able to provide my own stones from my mums eternity ring, making it so much more special. Ian even spent time measuring every bit of my engagement ring to ensure my wedding band fits perfectly with it. Excellent service and fantastic jewellery - thank you so muchread more
