Great things take time- and our life stories as they unfold, are beautiful. Celebrating our relationships (whether through marriage or anniversary ceremony, or a personal commitment) is an ever-flowing and constantly evolving dedication.
Daily renewal of love and commitment can and should be as celebrated as the special occasions that we plan ahead for.
I believe that despite all of our differences, love is what we share. It is our universal truth- the thing we’re doing right!
It is with great joy that I create every marriage ring by design and by hand, for your hands. These rings are a means of commemorating love for wedding days, and everydays- bearing witness to the extraordinary and the vernacular.
In my studio, I am dedicated specifically to working with gold and silver. Though I do often have recommendations for specific alloys based on design and a variety of other technical considerations. It is helpful when inquiring to include your personal preferences.
All of my cast original designs are created using conflict-free and recycled gold.
Currently available gold alloys include:
Yellow Gold: 10k; 14k; 18k
Rose Gold: 10k; 14k; 18k
White Gold: 10k; 14k; 18k
Sterling Silver: 925
Diamonds and precious gemstones are used for solitaire designs, though I rarely stock extras- preferring to purchase through trusted industry suppliers based on client preferences. Gemstone considerations inspire an in-depth conversation that is best had via a personal consultation since these options are
Lifestyle jewellery is created using natural pearls and gemstones, and most often includes sterling silver elements or findings. Solid gold or 14k gold-filled findings are also used in these designs, and are marked in product descriptions for clarity.
INVESTMENT + TIMELINE
Thank you for considering Locusart Jewellery for your wedding ring(s)! It is a great joy for me to create every one of my pieces to order. I understand that investing in handmade wedding rings is an important decision- one that will serve throughout a lifetime of joy and trials- that will bear witness to your incredible story. Quality of experience and of finished product are equally important facets of my process, and I would be happy to work with you.
Naturally, there are a number of variables that affect pricing, not the least of which are gold rates that change daily. Though the formula I use is both reliable and consistent, prices may always be subject to change.
Consultations/Meetings with local clients are complimentary, though serious inquiries are appreciated as scheduling requires a certain amount of finesse. These are ideal opportunities to meet in person, I love getting to know each and every one of my clients & would adore hearing your story. This is the very best way to discuss design preferences, acquire accurate sizing/measurements and to discuss timeline.
Please reach out via the inquiry page for quotes related to your specific preferences, and/or browse some of the finished pieces in the Engagement + Wedding shop.
Following a personal consultation and design confirmation, most pieces are produced within a 6 - 8 week timeframe. There are of course exceptions to this, though most clients do get in touch for consultation anywhere from 3 months prior to their wedding date to 1 year prior or more. As a general rule (especially given our ever-evolving global situation)- sooner is better. All of your information + preferences are kept in my meeting notes.
