So I have a really awkward shaped engagement ring. I need a ring similar to this: https://www.weddingrings-direct.com/ring/twist-shaped-wedding-rings-designed-to-wrap-around but the ones I've found so far have not matched it perfectly. Any ideas on anywhere that will make a plain white gold band at a reasonable price that would fit the ring?

Thanks!

    Assuming that you're asking because you don't want to use this company, it a bit difficult for anyone to suggest somewhere as we don't know your location.
    I know where I'd go to have a ring made but that's not much good to you if you live at the other end of the country.


    Have you asked in any local independent jewellers?
    Is there a manufacturing jewellers anywhere near you?
    Are you close to Hatton Garden or the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham?

    i also vote independent jewellers, or there's a few companies online i've found where they send you a little casting kit where you make an impression of your ring and they design something that way! Etsy is also fab for independent jewellers for things like this.

    If you are struggling with an independent, have you tried Goldsmiths Jewellers? They actually have a lot of shape moulds they can work with cast in the metal of your choice, and one of their (very!) unusual ones fitted my ring perfectly. They had a lot of choice to fit around a lot of strange shapes (including like the above).

    There's a more affordable version here:

    I bought my wedding ring from them and they have a sample service so you can check it fits properly before ordering.

    It would be worth trying something in person if you haven't already - even if it's not a perfect fit it might confirm that you do indeed want a shaped band.

    I thought I did, but when I tried one on I didn't like it. I ended up with a gentle V shaped band instead, so there is a gap, but it's not massive. It also means that I can wear my band on it's own if I want to without it looking weird. :)
