Whether it is a classic band ring or an extravagant bespoke design, each piece is fully customised to your needs, style and personality.

It has been handcrafted just for you.

A Wedding Ring is a symbol of eternal love, infinity and unity.

The ancient Egyptians believed in the vena amoris, literally the “vein of love” that runs directly from the heart to the fourth finger on the left hand. Since then, wedding rings have been worn as a sign of the binding pledge between spouses. However, there are many cultures (for example Central, Eastern and Northern Europe) where the wedding rings are worn on right hand side. On which finger the wedding band is worn will depend on a couples heritage and culture.

Usually Wedding Rings are made in Precious Metals: Silver, 9K, 14K, 18K Yellow/ Rose / White Gold, Platinum or Palladium. Almost all white gold jewellery is plated with Rhodium to give a whiter and brighter appearance.

Platinum is highly resistant to tarnish, takes a high polish, and is harder to scratch than gold and silver.

Palladium is a silvery white metal that has recently become popular as it looks similar to Platinum.

The Classic Wedding Ring shapes are: Court, D-shape or Half Round, Flat, Flat Court, Shallow Court. However they can be made with other bespoke variations and unique designs suitable for your personality, style and needs. A Jewel (Akvile Cenkyte) is a registered Fairtrade Goldsmith. So, you can request your items to be made with Fairtrade Gold.

Wedding Rings can be set inside or outside with Diamonds or other Gemstones.

To make Wedding Rings more personal A Jewel can engrave them with a secret message, name or date etc.


Engagement Ring symbolises love, dedication & commitment. Most of the time it is set with coloured gemstones, diamonds, engraved with the meaningful words or patterns.

The earliest known diamond engagement ring dated 1477. It was presented by Archduke Maximilian of Austria to his wife to be Mary of Burgundy as a gift to mark their engagement. But the diamond becomes popular choice of stone for an engagement setting only after 1947, when was created ‘’A Diamond is Forever’’ campaign.


Eternity Ring symbolises never ending love.

Eternity rings are usually given to commemorate a special milestone in a relationship: wedding anniversary, the birth of a baby or other significant event.

How to commission your own bespoke Jewellery?

Inspiration and mood board

Things that represent you or your partner’s/ loved one’s or friend’s style, personality, music, hobbies and culture.

The design idea could be based on a special memory, story, scrapbook, photographs, artwork, feelings etc.

To create mood boards by using Pinterest is fun and easy to share with the other users.

What jewellery do you or someone like: delicate or chunky, extravagant designs, sophisticated or minimalistic?

At this stage you will help a designer to understand what styles you or your partner like and it is a ground for the design process.

Design Development Brief

That’s where discussions start about the making processes using plain or mixed precious metals, textures, finishes, coloured gemstones and diamonds.

Then ethical choices can be discussed about the sustainability/fair-trade sourcing of the materials and special hallmarking.

Akvile will advise how to measure (or measure in person if the meeting is arranged) the finger size and review your ring proportion.

To do that there’s no need to meet in person as everything can be done via electronic communication: Email, Zoom, Teams, WhatsApp etc.

Or if you like the meeting can be arranged in Akvile’s home workshop-studio, in Black Mountain.

At this stage, having confirmed the brief; the designer will produce the sketches, drawings, jewellery design proposals, technical drawings and CAD design.

Budget, design options and quote

Once the final design and cost is agreed, Akvile will send you an order form with the details. At this point 100% is payable via bank transfer.

If you have a deadline for completion, then please notify at earliest opportunity.

Your jewellery will be handmade in A Jewel workshop.
