***Hello!! Ash will be away from the workshop from early June until late August!!! If you're getting married between June 1st and September 7th, please place your order by May 7th**** This is a very special ring made from 18ct New Zealand alluvial beach gold. This gold was collected from a two-man operation right here on the West Coast of New Zealand. The typical gold wedding ring creates 20 tonnes of mining waste. The gold from this ring was collected by vacuuming up sand off the beach and collecting tiny flecks of gold washed down the river from old mines.

The beach is left the same way they found it (with some help from the tides). I buy the gold directly from the man that collects it, then take it to my workshop to fabricate it. I measure it out and melt it down to create the required karat and then beat it and shape it until it finally becomes a ring.

This way, I can give you my word that every step in the process has been done responsibly with very little environmental impact and without harming local communities. Plus, I think it's pretty cool to make jewellery from something that comes from my surroundings.

This listing is for an 6mm wide band, tt has an asymmetrical faceted surface texture. It's made with ethical beach gold but it can also be made in all tones of gold, recycled sterling silver and platinum. If your size is not available in the drop-down menu, please get in touch for a custom quote. The last photo shows the various metals available. All metals are quoted on an individual basis.

Our rings are ultimately customizable! Want a different width? Want to add some gemstones? Want us to design an etching just for you? NO PROBLEM! Just get in touch for details!

We finish our wedding and engagement rings to a matte finish, but we can also do them to a high polish if you prefer. All rings will find their own degree of polish with wear, matte rings will become more shiny and shiny rings will become more matte. We can provide instructions on how to bring your ring back to its original polish when necessary.

We automatically ship via airmail which is insured, but not tracked. We can upgrade to courier shipping which is tracked and arrives in about 3 days worldwide.

All orders over $1000 include a handmade wooden ring box and courier express shipping. All other orders come minimally packaged in a recycled kraft box.

We do engraving for an additional $30 and all rings can be made comfort fit. We welcome custom orders! Please get in touch for more info, we're here to help!
