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.
At Larsen Jewellery, our jewellers specialise in making sure that your wedding ring will sit perfectly with your engagement ring. Whether it is a classic solitaire engagement ring or your own unique design, our jewellers will take the time to design the best solution for your needs.
The team at Larson Jewelry 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!

Ben and the team at Larsen Jewellery were superb. The designs and quality of the rings were perfect for us. The engagement ring was unique and with that, we decided to get our wedding bands too. We are now married and the compliments on our rings have been non-stop!

I’m so grateful for the incredible service and craftsmanship of Larsen Jewellery. Fleur is a friendly, professional jewellery designer who demonstrated great passion in what she’s doing. We had a family heirloom ring with 50+ yrs history redesigned, and we couldn’t be happier with the stunning new ring. I would recommend Larsen to all my friends & family. Thanks again for everything!

To call Larsen Jewellery a jewellery store I feel is doing them a disservice. Larsen Jewellery is so much more. I was so hesitant after having a negative experience elsewhere trying to get an engagement ring as a same sex couple, but as soon as I walked through the door I was made to feel so welcome. The wonderful Elissa took the 10 different ideas I had for an engagement ring and put them all together into one cohesive design. When she opened the box to show me the ring I felt like she had reached into my imagination and turned it into reality. Her advice was invaluable and helped make a dream tangible. We went back (after my proposal was accepted) and got my engagement ring as well. We have already decided on bands for our wedding as well thanks to advice from Elissa. I never once felt like Elissa was just trying to make a sale. I always felt like Elissa was there to help with what I needed. All the staff were friendly with a smile and a greeting. What a great experience and one that I am so happy to have had as part of our new journey together. Thank you.

Great experience with Fleur and the team at Larsen. We had a great experience through the design, manufacturing and hand over process. Fleur hand drew a few designs and gave us time to thing, then shared a CAD drawing to ensure we were happy with the final product. We had a tight deadline to meet with the requirements and they were able to be flexible and work with us on getting an intricate design completed quickly! Thank you

Alex was excellent and helpful throughout the whole process. He gave his expert recommendations, and together we designed the perfect ring. He took the time to explain everything in detail and really made the experience a positive one. Will definitely return in the future and recommend to others. Thanks again Alex and the Larsen team

I am absolutely thrilled with my redesigned engagement ring! After 55 years of use, the original design was honoured and enhanced, thanks to Rod and his suggestions. Also to be recommended is the service - the fast repair to other items of jewellery, the friendly greeting of the staff, and the kind offer of refreshing drinks - which are very much appreciated, especially on a warm day.

Amazing experience from start to finish. The staff talked me through the process and were able to stick to my budget without putting pressure on to spend more. The ring was better than expected and the service was first class.
