Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Workshop Near You?

If you're looking for "places to make your own wedding ring near me" and live in Arizona, you're in luck! Most of our clients fly in from other states, however.  Tucson is a wonderful place to visit, especially in the winter!

How Do You Get Started?

Start by scheduling a consultation! During your Zoom consultation, you'll plan your custom wedding or engagement ring, deciding on details like shape, texture, and additional diamonds. Note that the setting is pre-made to save time. Check the photo albums above for ideas.

What Kinds of Things Can You Make?

Project Types 

What Designs Are Possible At A DIY?

The things you can make in a DIY are limited to

Wedding Ring workshopSimple Engagement Rings

Engagement rings can either be made from pre-made parts like shanks and settings, soldered together and then focus on stone setting, or simple fabricated rings with limited stone setting.

If you want to make an engagement ring with multiple stones set, please note that the ring will be pre-purchased as an unfinished mounting and the majority of the work will be stone setting, ring sizing, and polishing. 

The stone setting is always pre-made, as it would take nearly a day to hand fabricate one of these for the first time.  You can see the materials used in the photo albums above. 

The most common DIY Engagement Rings:

- Solitaire style engagement rings

- Some small stone setting

-Three-stone engagement rings

Handmade Wedding Bandsdiy rings

Wedding band designs include plain bands of any size, width, and metal type.  Texturing like hammering or mountain engraving (note, this is an advanced skill, and your mountain won't look like ours, although you'll be given a test blank to practice on) or other texturing is possible.  Simple two metal rings and some basic stone setting is fine.

What you can do for sure is forge a band for a wedding band.  Some minor details can be added, like shape and texture. A few small diamonds can be flush set in the bands. 

- Textured bands

- Lathed bands

- Two tone bands

What Designs are Not Possible?

There's a long list of things you cannot make at a DIY.  This includes:

- Complex designsforging your own wedding band

- Many small diamonds

- Alternative metals

- Organic, cast shapes

- Mokume Gane

How do we figure out what metal, ring size, and width?

We will guide you through each step, demonstrating when necessary and remaining as hands-off as possible throughout the process. Any steps can be done by us herself as well if determined to be too tricky or delicate (such as the final setting of expensive stones or soldering delicate items).
