Mass-made, generic, cliché wedding rings not really your thing? We’re with you on that.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Your wedding rings will be with you through all of life's great adventures... It's only right they should start with a little love story of their own!
For the style-savvy couple hand making your wedding rings with CAST is a pretty special experience. You can design and make your own (or each others’) wedding rings in wax, we'll then cast in solid Gold, Silver, or Platinum. Our expert team will give you all the support you need to create wedding rings that you're over the moon with.
Lost wax casting. Rather romantic words, and indeed it’s rather a romantic occupation. This is an ancient art. Tribal artists in South America used the method to cast gold and it also found favour with the Renaissance goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini. The idea is to make a mould.
The mould is a unique design. It comes with the DNA of the maker. In this case you. Just imagine making your own bespoke wedding rings, or a piece of jewellery simply by carving into a tablet of wax. Memories made solid.
The tools and the wax and the know-how will all be provided. At the end of the evening your pieces will be wrapped, individually packaged and the casting wheels will be set in motion.
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
Three weeks after the experience your work of art will be waiting on the doorstep. Your wax model will have gone through a process of alchemy by way of Birmingham. The wax will have been turned into silver. It will have been buffered, polished and every mark you made on the night will be picked up in the process. A sign of your hand in the process. It really is a magical experience. 6000 years of lost wax casting. Just how lovely is that.
Your finished piece, cast and hand-finished in solid silver.
You'll have the opportunity to upgrade your sterling silver creation to gold or platinum. We also offer plating and stone setting.
