Depending on your choice any additional cost like casting your ring in recycled Silver or 14k/18k Gold Plated, Solid Gold ring is either pre-paid or can be noted on your return form. I will then send you an invoice when I receive your finished wax in the mail. Your ring will be casted and/or plated once the payment is received.
Please choose your approximate ring size (small, medium, large, extra large) from the product options or your exact size using the ring sizer. If you are unsure which size to choose you can order a ring sizer here, so you can order your perfect size.

This Workshop opened up a whole need world of creativity for me. It was susch a pleasure to meet you and be guided through the evening. I cherish my ring and I will come back for another class for sure!
I had a great time and I totally forgot time while I was carving away. The best thing was that I could make my own design, and Daphne was very helpful in making that happen. Now I am super proud of what I made and I love wearing my own creation. Thank you Daphne!!
I came together with my friend, she gave me this Workshop as a present and I am so thankful. I now not only have a beautiful ring that I made myself but also a very nice memory. I love Daphne's work and everything was taking care off. If you will host the signet ring class I will join again (and invite my friend)
