How We Make Our Rings

Our promise is that the the ring you wear, will be for you and only you.

We at Durham Rose, personally guarantee that the design of your ring will never be repeated. We ensure the uniqueness of your bespoke engagement ring or wedding ring due to bespoke manufacturing process that we use in order to create them.


Lost Wax Casting

Once you have agreed on the final design, a skilled technician will use state-of-the-art engineering software to generate a wireframe model of the ring. From this, a 3D printer is then used to create a wax mould ready for the ‘lost wax’ casting process. The technician will then pour your chosen precious metal into the wax mould which will be destroyed in order to extract your ring. This ensures that your specific cast will never be used again, guaranteeing your ring’s true uniqueness.

Once the raw casting has been made it will be polished by hand in preparation for the trained gem-setter to mount your selected gemstone(s). The finished ring is given a final polish and is then quality assessed by a trained Goldsmith to ensure that the ring has been made to the highest possible standard. Once approved, the ring is sent to be hallmarked.


Lathe Made Wedding Rings

The production of the wedding band is a well-evolved process which has been innovated over time. The traditional system has been simplified by the use of modern technology. This has made the process a more efficient way of creating simple and classically shaped wedding bands. Starting from a tube made from a continuous casting machine it is possible to achieve the perfect diameter, width and quality for your wedding band.

This is a great process which creates rings quickly and efficiently whilst reducing the amount of waste and the amount of metal required from more traditional systems.
