Cuttlefish Cast Wedding Ring – 18ct Gold
Individually hand cast in the workshop these cuttlefish patterned rings are each truly unique.
The rings are formed by hollowing out a pair of soft cuttlefish bones (found washed up on beaches throughout the UK) with a handmade, master pattern, ring. I then wire the two halves of this mould together and pour molten metal into the cavity. This forms a one off impression of the inside of the mould, including the distinctive cuttlefish bone texture. The high pouring temperature of the metal burns the cuttlefish bone, destroying the mould as it goes, so each mould can only be used once.
Once cool I remove and clean up the cast ring and polish the interior for a comfortable fit. The final result is a beautiful, natural cuttlefish texture on the outside of your ring.
The cuttlefish casting method allows me to make new rings in silver, 9ct gold, 14ct gold, 18ct gold or fairtrade 18ct gold. I can even recycle your old family gold into new rings.
This listing is for a 5mm court shaped band, in 18ct gold, but should you prefer something different (or an unlisted size) please get in touch to discuss a commission.
