What Makes Our Rings Different?

A Classic Ring Shape — Superior Seal Engraving

A Classic Ring Shape

The main difference with our rings is in the shape and weight. Our rings are a more generous rounded shape than others you might find, with thicker heads and more gold in the shoulders sweeping down to a D shaped band.  They carry more gold, so they are generally heavier.

Our rings are made by the drop hammer, ‘stamping method’, not the inferior moulded method, (which causes imperfections and poor engraving).  The stamping method involves a 1.5 ton drop hammer, rather like a guillotine, which drops down on the gold placed in our steel dies The drop hammer hits with such force that it creates exceptionally dense, flawless,  gold which is essential for truly detailed seal engraving. The basic ring stamping is then Individually made up to your finger size then shaped by our skilled artisans into a generous and beautifully shaped ring.

Superior Seal Engraving

Our hand seal engraving is second to none. Our seal engraver is probably the best in Britain, carrying out three dimensional works of art in astonishing detail.  Family crest seals are normally executed in reverse to make a positive mirror image wax rebus.   We can carry out similar deep 3D engraving  in positive, ‘for sight’ as you look at the ring.

The quality of the engraving depends on the flawless density of the gold or gemstone being engraved.  It all starts with the high quality stamped gold we use in making the rings.

I also help with the design amd advise on what makes a good engraving, based on 30 years experience.
