Make Your Own Wedding Ring



Make Your Own Wedding Rings

A Meaningful, Personal Ring Making Experience

Do you want a more meaningful, personally fulfilling experience choosing 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 – from start to finish –  in a single day!  Whaley Studios in San Diego has years of experience guiding couples with no previous training through the process to create beautiful, unique wedding bands to surpass those sold in jewelry stores. Your  rings are guaranteed to come out beautifully, and represent your unique and personal style.

DIY Wedding Rings – A rewarding and bonding experience!

Do-It-Yourself wedding rings is a far more rewarding and bonding experience than simply choosing your bands at a jewelry counter.  Making your own wedding rings means you are creating personal, customized jewelry that represents your unique individuality. Starting with your own design and choice of precious metals, you will alloy metal and pour ingots to create stock, and then complete the fabrication process through the final polish!   The workshop is truly a fun and bonding experience from beginning to end, and your success is ensured through the personal attention of master goldsmith Jay Whaley, who guides your every step.

The workshop and rings

Your unique rings can be made of platinum, 14k or 18K yellow, rose or white gold, or even a special new age sterling silver. Gemstones like diamonds or other colored stones can also be incorporated as part of your wedding ring design. The choice is yours, and we love unusual design ideas!

Our workshop package includes the one-day workshop, the precious metal used to make the rings, one-on-one guidance of  master goldsmith Jay Whaley, engraving and a ring box in which to keep your new rings. And after the workshop to help you celebrate the experience of creating your rings we send you on your way with a bottle of our house champagne!

Reach us at 619-299-9619 or email us at whaleystudios@gmail.com for a free consultation and to discuss ring designs and pricing. Pricing will depend on which metal you choose.  There is a workshop minimum of $1000.

Wedding Rings Made Here

The rings shown below were made by couples who had never made rings before coming to Whaley Studios. Your design ideas are expressed as bands you make together yourselves, creating rings unique in all the world! Just the two of you and the goldsmith have fun working together until the rings are done–in a single day!*


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
