Most of the wedding rings are made of wire. The biggest choice of dimensions in the most metal alloys is in round, flat and D-shaped wire cross section. Less popular wires come in square and oval cross sections. These few basic wire profiles are commonly used to make almost any traditional wedding ring.
However, if you have a different idea, or would like to make a more unusual ring, like made of green gold in a triangular wire profile, talk to us.
Examples below show D shape 6mm x 3mm, flat 15mm x 0.6mm and round 4mm diameter.
Whilst designing your ring you have to make a decision of how wide and proud it is going to be. Silver and gold round wire is available in a diameter ranging from 1mm to 6mm and in any desired width and thickness in a flat cross section. Available dimensions of a D-shaped wire are shown in the tables below.
• sterling silver
• 9ct yellow, rose or white gold*
• 18ct yellow, rose or white gold
If you wish to make your rings using differrent precious metals, e.g. palladium or platinum, or methods, talk to us and we will find a solution.
* please note that white gold has a yellowish hue and as a standard is rhodium-plated to obtain pure white finish you might be familiar with.
