Custom made electrum rings are now available. Perfect as a wedding or engagement ring that's a bit different, or just for everyday wear.

Electrum - also known as green gold - is an alloy of gold and silver, which can occur naturally but in this instance was made in my workshop. Equal weights of assay quality pure gold and fine silver are melted together and cast into a bespoke ring, a process which yields a solid, single piece with no visible joins.

The process is time-consuming and difficult, but the results are a beautiful metal which is somewhere between the soft sheen of fine silver and the gentle glow of gold. It can appear anything from almost silver to a gold colour depending on the lighting. Your electrum rings will definitely draw comments and admiration, it's an extremely rare alloy in jewellery!

Because of the way the rings are made, from melting down raw metal, a popular option for wedding rings is to include an old family ring as part of the source metal - I've used grandfather's signet rings, mother's engagement rings and more, to let people carry a little bit of family history on their finger every day. I'm not sure if it counts as both "something old" and "something new" though!

Mat did a fantastic job. His work and communication is wonderful. Unfortunately, I think my fiancee's fingers swelled because the ring was a little tight, but Mat did everything that was requested. Love it! Thank you so much.

Wow. I have been looking for green gold ring and was disappointed that I was unable to get one from Uk. I finally decided to take the plunge and buy one when Shinium ring appeared. I was delighted, not only was the size perfect, the detailed description from seller very helpful but also the price was good (even for a defect that the seller highlighted but does not detract from beauty of ring.. can barely see it) but also made in Norwich my home city. I am so very very happy with service, speed, honesty and quality. Would definitely buy again from Shinium and recommend highly. Thank you so much

While international shipping during the holidays gave both Mat and I serious headaches, this ring finally (!!) showed up! My favorite Junglist could not be more thrilled with his upgrade to his wedding ring :-)

Bought this ring in order to propose to my boyfriend. I had no idea about the size and Mat was very flexible about sorting out an exchange of necessary. It arrived within a day and it's gorgeous. On top of that he said yes! He loves it- he swore he'd never ware a ring and he has barely taken it off.
