Make Your Own Wedding Ring



Make Your Own Wedding Rings


Do you want a more meaningful, personally fulfilling experience with your wedding rings than the local jewelry store provides? Our master goldsmith, Jay Whaley will help you and your loved one design and make your own wedding rings in a single day! Your rings are guaranteed to come out perfectly, just the way you want them. Whaley Studios in San Diego has years of experience guiding couples with no previous training as they create beautiful, unique wedding bands to rival those sold in jewelry stores.

DIY Wedding Rings – More Rewarding & Bonding

Do-It-Yourself wedding rings is a far more rewarding and bonding experience than simply choosing your bands at a jewelry counter. Your wedding rings will be personally customized jewelry. Beginning with your choice of precious metals, designing the rings, to melting and pouring out the metal and completing with the final polish, you make your wedding rings with your own hands! It is truly a couple’s hands-on project from beginning to end. Your success is ensured with the personal attention of our experienced jeweler, who guides your every step. You cannot go wrong.

What Can You Do?

Your unique rings can be made of platinum, palladium, 18K yellow or white gold, or even a special high-tech sterling silver. Gemstones like diamonds or other colored stones can also be a part of your wedding rings. The choice is yours, and we love unusual design ideas!

Our ring-making package is a one-day workshop which includes the precious metal used to make the rings, the one-on-one guidance of a master goldsmith, as well as lunch on our balcony overlooking vibrant Fifth Avenue in Hillcrest. And … celebrate the experience of completing your rings with a champagne toast!

Come on in to our well-equipped jewelry-making studio and see what we do here. It’s a creative and fun environment, where we will help you to create the most special rings…and know that you made them yourselves! Reach us at 619-299-9619 or email us at whaleystudios@gmail.com for a free consultation, tour our studio, and discuss ring designs and pricing. Pricing will depend on which metal you choose. You can see our gallery of rings made by couples just like you, ask questions, and set a date for your own personal wedding ring workshop.

Yelp Reviews:

“My fiance’ and I came here to make our wedding rings back in July. Jay and Sunshine were amazing people who really let us make the day our own experience. There really are no words to describe what a cool experience it was making our own wedding bands….Definitely recommend this place for the experience and the fact that there is really nothing more unique than making your wedding bands from scratch.”
Katie S., San Diego, CA

“Went in to make a wedding band for my fiance’ and Jay and Sunshine were great!! Fun experience, loved being able to take part in the whole experience of taking raw materials into a beautiful ring, that looked better than the one from the high end jeweler I was previously considering! Service was fantastic and Jay was incredibly accommodating of my crazy work schedule…”
Elsie F., Charlottetown, Canada

“Fantastic wedding ring making experience. The price was on par with what we would have paid for a mass-produced ring, but my fiance got exactly what he wanted. Jay is the best teacher and he allowed us to make the ring ourselves. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. Jay made sure the ring was perfect and listened to our needs. Totally relaxing day before our wedding!”
Kate V., San Diego, CA

“My fiance and I didn’t really find any store-bought rings that appealed to us, so we decided to make them here. We brought pictures and ideas, not really knowing how feasible they were. Jay was fantastic, just the perfect balance of hands on and hands off. He taught us all of what we needed to know and then let us go, keeping a close eye in case we needed extra help. He is also really personable and fun. We had a great time making each other’s rings and they are better than any picture we brought in. We are so happy with them!”
Laurin W., San Diego

“This experience has been more special than going to a jewelry store to pick out our wedding rings. Jay was a great teacher and has helped us to create the perfect wedding rings. I cannot recommend this enough for anyone looking to create a piece of memory together. Our rings mean so much more than picking them out from the store.”
Hais L., San Diego, CA
