Please note: This is a custom, made-to-order item. Please check my shop announcement for my current lead time.

This is a matched set of 14k gold wedding bands. I have shown the rings here in yellow gold, but white gold and rose gold are also available at the same cost.

All of the gold you see in my shop is from reclaimed/recycled sources. My gold is smelted in the USA. As well as being eco-friendly, it is also certified as conflict-free, and is SCS Certified.

I form each band from a 1mm thick strip of 14k gold. One band is 4mm wide, while the other is 6mm. Each is given a hammered finish, including the edges. The insides are polished to a high shine.

I am also able to create these bands using any of the following finishes:

brushed matte lustre
microhammered
high-shine polish
herringbone (incurs an additional $80 fee)
pinbrushed
matte with hand-done brushed overlay
wave debossing
woodgrain debossing
bubble debossing
...or, any other finish you see on any of the pieces in my shop

As you have probably noticed, I love to come up with new textures and finishes on metals- if you have any ideas, however vague, bounce them off of me and see what I can come up with.

SHIPPING- PLEASE READ: Is by the quickest method I can use to get your rings to you. This is overnight in the USA, and approximately 3-5 business days outside of Canada and the USA. It includes a tracking number. Please note- this method carries only $100 in insurance. As the rings are moving with a reputable courier and must be signed for on your end, they are very well-protected. However, on the very rare and outside chance that they should become lost or damaged in the mail, I cannot cover the cost unless you have chosen to upgrade to full insurance. If you wish to do so, please get in touch for an estimate on this insurance. It is no longer possible to send full-insured packages by overnight Purolator, as they will only offer a maxiumum of $100 on jewelery shipments. They can travel full-insured with Canada Post for around $40, but shipping takes upwards of three business days- no overnight option.

Please read my shop announcement for current production time and other important information.

Frequently asked questions about Specimental

I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.

If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net
All of my pieces come ready to present as gifts, in attractive foil stamped jewelry boxes, enclosed in a lovely Chinese faux silk gift bag.

If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.

I am happy to ship to your workplace, a friend, or a relative, when secrecy is necessary. The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
At this time, I do not sell wholesale, nor do I place my pieces on commission.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.

There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
No, I cannot. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at treloar@telus.net

Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via treloar@telus.net to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
