What my customers say:
Review from Clariska & Otto about their custom made wedding rings:
"We chose Sandra as our 'ring maker' because her style immediately appealed to us.
We enjoyed going through the process step by step with Sandra. The contact was personal and relaxed. That gave us a lot of space to express our own ideas.
Sandra listens well and understands our style and wishes perfectly. Many possibilities were discussed and many different ideas were born. We think this is important; your own wishes are the starting point and that nothing seems impossible!"
Review of Karola & Maurice about their custom made wedding rings:
"We went to Sandra with the old wedding rings of my great-great-grandparents. We wanted to incorporate these special family rings into our wedding rings. It was important to us that they would be personal rings, something that suits us and 'belongs to us'.
We didn't know exactly what we wanted and what was possible. During the conversation with Sandra, the innovative idea came up to turn the rings inside out and have the letters K and M appear in the rings. We immediately thought this was a cool idea!
During the second meeting, we discussed all the details and made the choice of materials. Maurice's ring has become a bit more classic and mine a bit more modern, they are different but still form a clear set. We got personal and completely unique rings: fantastic!"
Who is this for?
Custom made wedding rings are not for everyone. This is for you if you value:
This is not for you if you...
Who am I?
I believe that the most beautiful piece of jewellery is a jewel that you never want to take off. It’s so precious to you that you want to wear it everyday.
I’m trained as an Industrial Designer and Goldsmith. I think of jewellery as wearable design. For me the craft of goldsmithing stands for quality, attention and originality.
One of the reasons I became a jewellery designer is because jewellery has a lot of meaning. You wear a piece of jewellery close to you and often there is a special story attached to it. You got it from a loved one, it has a special story behind it or it symbolizes a special event in your life.
It is my mission to think about this meaning and emotional value that the jewel will have during the design phase of a custom made jewel. Who will wear it and what meaning will the jewel have for the wearer? In this way the design reinforces the meaning of the jewellery.
The custom design process is very special to me. I find it important to get to know my customers so that I can make something that perfectly suits them. It’s my challenge to go to the core of what you really want.
The biggest compliment a customer gave me was that the jewel I made for her was exactly what she was looking for and dreaming of. Even though she didn’t know what that would look like ;-)
How does it work?
Design consult & Intake
Week 1, duration 1 hour
|The design consultation is our first conversation. In this meeting we will discuss your wishes and you will receive advice about design, materials, styles and options. This conversation takes place in my studio in Nijmegen. In addition to the regular times, time slots are available for evenings and Saturday afternoons.|
The design brief
Week 2, document design brief
|The following week you will receive the design brief with your wishes and starting points for the design. A deposit of 50% is requested.|
The design meeting
Week 3, duration1 hour
|If necessary, an additional design meeting will be scheduled. The design of your rings is further elaborated by means of sketches and the details are recorded. If necessary, we will discuss this during a second appointment. Based on your feedback, I will refine the design. If necessary, a 3D prototype will be made for your rings.|
The final design
Week 3, document final design
|The final design for your wedding rings is recorded in the design confirmation. After approval I will make your rings in my studio. The making process is intensive and takes an average of 8 weeks. I use craft techniques along with 3D printing and laser engraving.|
Engraving + Inspection by Warranty
|When your wedding rings are almost finished, they will be inspected by Waarborg Holland. They inspect the metal for precious metal content and stamp the master's mark in the jewellery. It is possible to engrave your ring with a personal message.|
Your wedding rings are finished!
Week 12, thé RINGS
Around week 20 we will make an appointment for pick up of your engagement ring. You will receive it in a beautiful jewellery box from Lasand. If you need the ring earlier: discuss this with me, and I will see what is possible.
What are the cost for custom made wedding rings?
The price of your custom made wedding rings depends on the thickness and width of the final rings, after all, the more material there is in a ring, the higher the price. To make this clear, I have made two tables: one for 14 carat yellow gold and one for 18 carat yellow gold. On the horizontal axis you read the width of the ring and on the vertical axis the thickness of the ring. So you see that a wedding ring 2.5 mm wide and 1.2 mm thick in 14 carat gold costs €575. Please note prices below are for one ring.
*These are the prices for yellow gold. There is a 10% surcharge for palladium white gold.
Sometimes you want that little bit extra. Then the following options are available:
- A ring with multiple colors of gold, bi-color or even tri-color: €150 additional costs.
- A small gemstone in the wedding ring, up to about 0.1 carat / 3 mm round: €150 plus additional costs for the gemstone*.
- A big sized exclusive gemstone in the wedding ring: €250 plus additional costs for the gemstone*.
- You want something completely different**
* The price of gemstones varies from €100 for a 0.03 carat sapphire to €2000 for a 1 carat diamond.
I like wedding rings that are "completely different". They are supposedly not recognizable as wedding rings. If this is the case, the schedules above will still serve as a starting point, but there will be a surcharge for the extra design hours. This can be the case when a lot of symbolism has to be incorporated in the rings or when the desired design deviates strongly from the "standard straight wedding ring". More hours are then spent for the design and making of the rings. You pay a surcharge of €300 per ring.
In addition, once during the design phase (after approval of the design brief) the volume and use of materials can deviate per design. This will be communicated to you separately per design. I like open communication and know where you stand. There are never unexpected costs without prior communication with you.
"The process we went through with Sandra was very pleasant: clear ánd creative."
"Your wishes are the actual starting point, nothing seems impossible!"
"Now I have a ring that is unique, that no one else has and that is exactly what I was looking for. Even though I didn't know what it looked like yet!"
"With her professional knowledge and creative view, she shaped my idea into a beautiful design."
