Spring has come to a speedy end and we are now in the midst of summer. So for those of you who’ve opted to take advantage of the sunshine this means your wedding day is quickly approaching! Now is a good time to start organising your wedding rings, leaving plenty of time and avoiding unnecessary stress before the big day!
If you are avoiding organising your wedding rings, perhaps because you are unsure of what you want or how it will fit with your engagement ring, it’s time to visit your jeweller so that they can design the perfect solution!
It is often the case that engagement rings are shaped in a way that might leave you wondering ‘how on earth am I ever going to find a wedding ring to match?’ Maybe you love your engagement ring just as it is and you are worried that adding a wedding ring may detract attention from it. This is when a professional eye can help! There are several ways to design a ring so that it will sit perfectly beside your engagement ring and enhance it. With some creativity and fine craftsmanship your jeweller will be able to help you come up with a balanced and beautiful solution, a design that will complement your engagement ring. So what are you options? Three popular solutions are the curved wedding ring, a straight wedding ring with a notch and a wedding ring with a gap.
The curved wedding ring is a popular solution for those engagement rings that will not allow a straight wedding ring. This might be an unusual shaped setting that protrudes out. The curved wedding ring is designed with a slight curve so that it follows the line of your engagement ring. This style looks great when worn with your engagement ring, but also looks beautiful on its own.
The straight wedding ring with a notch is for those whose engagement ring setting sits out just a small amount or is not high enough preventing a straight wedding ring from sitting perfectly flush. In this instance a small notch can be created so that when worn with your engagement ring it locks in perfectly, creating the ultimate match.
The alternative solution when wanting your wedding ring to sit flush to your engagement ring is to have a small gap cut out of your wedding ring so that it locks in resting either side of your setting. This perhaps is not as popular as the alternative fitted wedding ring styles, but should not be overlooked as an option. If you intend on not wearing your engagement ring all the time, then this may not be the best solution for you.

Really happy with the service and craftsmanship! Only had a vague idea of what I was after but Fleur walked me through my options and my wife was over the moon with the final product. Can't recommend highly enough

My partner got my engagement ring from Larsen Jewellery and I couldn’t be happier. It is stunning and I love it so much.

I recently purchased my partner's engagement ring from Larsen Jewellery and I could not speak more highly of the care and effort that went into designing and making the ring along with the service provided, ensuring all my queries were answered promptly.I had the pleasure of dealing with Fleur whom was extremely helpful in the design process and ensured my vision was brought to life. Her customer service was also second to none keeping me informed with many updates right throughout the process.I would strongly recommend using Larsen Jewellery and will be using them for any related needs going forward.

The team at Larson Jewelery are great! I spoke to them over email about what type of engagement ring I was looking for and Elissa promptly replied, providing ideas and pricing options. She recommended that I came into the store to look at physical rings and discuss the key aspects of picking a diamond. The whole process is very thorough and the team are there to help you pick a ring that works for you and your budget. I would 100% recommend Larson Jewelers, so much so that we went back to them for our Wedding rings even though we moved back to NZ. Thanks team!

This is going to be a little longer, but I want to explain what service I received from larson:I was looking for an engagement ring. I am very specific about what I wanted, and wanted to design my own.I talked with and visited about 40 jewelers who promised me all sorts of things. Alex from Larson always had that extra bit of knowledge he shared with me and the realism to not promise me the world about this ring...Alex straight up told me that some things couldn’t be done the way I had imagined, and he explained with expertise and examples. He went into amazing detail of why I should consider this or that. His suggestions made the ring better.I had researched for months and what he told me was never wrong. With other jewelers, I could tell that they were promising more than what was possible in order to close a sale.Alex made me multiple designs, we had multiple meetings and even though I was possibly the most difficult customer ever, Alex had complete patience with me, explaining every step along the way.Alex is extremely knowledgeable, and I'm sure other jewellers are as well, but the time he took to make sure he knew what I wanted (and I knew what I was getting) was fantastic.The engagement ring turned out amazing, and we went back to Larson for our wedding rings.Again, I compared and checked jewellers (I wanted to go with Larson but wanted to be thorough). There were offers that were cheaper, but the other jewelleries always seemed to "not include" something, or seemed to forget to mention this "extra cost".On closer inspection, Larsen is very reasonably priced for the product, but the service you receive is truly special.We then made our own rings with larson (literally you can do that with a jeweller in a day) and again Alex went beyond my already high expectations.I referred a friend to Larson (after I went with him to about 12 other jewelers in Melbourne) and he confirms my impression. Larson, but especially Alex, is a solid jeweller with prices that are fair and you will get the end product you are hoping for. There are no ugly surprises and their professionalism and standard of work is exceptional.If I could give more stars, I would.Thank you Alex!
