We were honoured to be asked to create these Pictish wedding rings for Robyn and Morag.They discussed their ideas with us and sent a sketch which we were delighted to work with to develop their concept into a very special … Continue reading
We created this pair of unique wedding rings for Emily & Gavin’s wedding which took place on the Isle of Arran. The rings were crafted from Aerospace Grade Titanium and engraved with the Arran skyline using a photo of the island as a design guide. Emily’s ring had a smooth, highly polished finish whereas Gavin’s ring was sandblasted and heat treated before engraving.
We received a lovely email from the couple;
“Gavin and I wanted our wedding rings to be unique and have some personal meaning to us. We have always liked Celtic designs, and while googling “Celtic wedding rings” we came across Rab and Tanya’s rings. We had never seen anything like them! We both have a big love of the outdoors, and the rings with mountain engravings really impressed us. We chose the Isle of Arran as our engravings because Arran is where our wedding was held, and the outline of Arran is one we were both familiar with as Gavin grew up across the water from Arran. So not a Celtic design after all, but something very meaningful. We love our rings !” Continue reading
Jessica and Norry asked us to craft a pair of bespoke Titanium wedding rings to feature Viking Dragon heads, Celtic Knotwork, a Thistle and a Shamrock to symbolise their combined heritages. It was great working with them both to encapsulate their ideas and create a design that they were both delighted with. When working with Titanium, we have a variety of finishing options that we can achieve. Both Jessica and Norry chose a natural, polished finish which complimented the design beautifully.
The couple kindly emailed to let us know once the rings had arrived:
‘Our rings arrived today and they are absolutely perfect! Thank you so much again for everything!’ Continue reading
Roxane and Gearóid asked if we would create their bespoke wedding rings featuring the skyline of Stac Pollaidh along with some Celtic Knotwork. The mountain, Stac Pollaidh is in the North West Scottish Highlands and has a special significance to the couple so we based the design upon a sketch which Roxane made of the skyline of the ridge.
As the rings were to be in Sterling Silver we suggested that we make them from Argentium Silver which is a type of Sterling Silver that is more robust and tarnish resistant.
The couple kindly emailed when their rings arrived; “We picked our rings from the post office depot today – they are fantastic, we are absolutely delighted!!!
Thanks again for everything!” Continue reading
We recently had the pleasure of creating a pair of Titanium wedding rings for Caroline and Ken. They requested the design for both rings to incorporate a Scottish Thistle and an English Rose to reflect their origins, along with some Celtic Knotwork. However Ken also has a love for wolves so we were able to include a Pictish Wolf (based upon the Ardross stone carving) on his ring and we also gave it a darker background in contrast to the polished raised design.
After their wedding Ken and Caroline kindly emailed us with the following comments:
“We absolutely have no regrets making the effort to come and find you in the Highlands and contracting you to provide the most stunning and bespoke rings which better than we could have ever imagined.
Your family business stands out from the crowd with your unique designs and workmanship. Thank you so so much.”
When Anne and Nick came to visit us to discuss their wedding rings we established that the Moose, Rose and Maple Leaf were elements that are particularly significant to them. We developed upon their initial ideas and set them within a Tree of Life border. We then engraved their unique design into Gold, maximizing the amount of detail possible for the ring width. They kindly emailed us when their rings arrived;
“Hi Rab and Tanya,
The rings arrived today and are everything we dreamed of and more still. They are fantastically detailed and so completely how we imagined. We cannot wait to put them on this weekend and wear them for the rest of our lives! They are so special and we are so glad to have found yourselves and come to see you back in July. The extra work you put in is appreciated so much and they are fantastic 🙂 the detail and craftsmanship are outstanding!
Thank You so much, Anne and Nick” Continue reading
We created this special pair of Platinum wedding rings for Rachael and Craig. Their rings are unique and feature Snowdrops and Thistles which they requested we design for their rings.
“Hello we just wanted to thank you so much for the rings everyone mentioned how lovely they were. Thank you so much for capturing the sentiment yet keeping so much beauty. We have recommended you to other friends and cannot express how pleased we are with the final item. Thank you so much for working hard to get the right design and ensuring we were 100% happy with the final item.
Best wishes for the future, Rachael and Craig” Continue reading
We were asked by Helen and Andrew to create a pair of unique Titanium rings that would capture the essence of a flower that Andrew made specially for Helen some years ago and also include Celtic Knotwork. It was a lovely commission to be part of and we created a stylised representation of Andrew’s flower which worked beautifully with the Knotwork design encircling the ring. The finish on the rings was heat-blued that we then polished off slightly more on Helen’s ring than on Andrew’s to suit their own personal tastes.
We were asked if we would create a special pair of bespoke wedding rings featuring a unique combination of elements for Adam and Cynthia. Working with the couple to develop their design ideas we made Cynthia’s ring in Platinum and Adam’s in Titanium along with a custom bog oak Sgian Dubh for Adam. These are best described in their own words;
“The rings feature a Rocky Mountain Columbine for the birthplace of the bride, the Yorkshire Rose for the birthplace of the groom and a Celtic knot representing Scotland, where we met and fell in love. The Sgian Dubh is for the groom, and is a beautiful blend of Scotland and Yorkshire – including a piece of Whitby Jet (from W.Hammond / @W_Hammond in North Yorkshire).”

We carved the Sgian Dubh handle and sheath from 4200 year old Culloden Bog Oak which is fitted with Sterling Silver ferrules and a Whitby Jet pommel stone. The lower ferrule band is engraved with the Yorkshire Rose and the blade was crafted for us by Scottish bladesmith Chris Grant from High Carbon Stainless Damascus.
Cynthia and Adam kindly emailed us after their wedding;
“We are thrilled with the Sgian Dubh and rings that Rab has made us for our wedding. They are exquisite in their detail and are so personal for us! We can’t thank you enough!” Continue reading
We were commissioned to create these unique Platinum wedding rings along with a special Sgian Dubh & Sgian Brew Set.
Both of the wedding rings featured a Tree of Life design and the bride’s ring had feathers around the ring to complement her engagement ring design and was carefully shaped to fit alongside it, whilst the groom’s ring featured a bee and and a bear.
Their wedding venue was the Royal Lochnagar Distillery so the couple sent us some wood from one of the distillery’s whisky barrels from which we made a special set of Sgian Dubhs and Sgian Brews, they also kindly sent a lovely bottle of 12 Year Old Royal Lochnagar Whisky from which we used a drop to mix with oil for polishing the wooden handles. Each Sgian was engraved with the recipients initials and the lower ferrules of the Sgian Dubh and Sgian Brew of the bride and groom were engraved with their Tree of Life design to complement their rings.

We created these wedding rings for Rose and Dan, working from their own sketches and ideas. Dan’s ring was crafted in titanium while Rose’s uses Palladium and a blue Sapphire. Although the designs are unique to each ring, they are … Continue reading
We created this custom titanium wedding ring from Michael’s own sketch of the Aonach Eagach mountain ridge. To get this unique look we treated his ring with a special sandblasted and heat treated finish.
Michael kindly emailed us after their wedding;
“We’re so happy with my ring. It makes me think of mountains and my wife every time I look at it, remembering the day we got engaged and of course our wedding day.“
See our site dedicated to our custom wedding rings and gifts. Continue reading
We created these unique wedding rings for Jamie and Jenn after discussing various ideas and using the couple’s own drawings inspired by ancient designs.
Jamie’s ring was crafted from a solid piece of Aerospace grade Titanium bar, featuring a Bear and Jenn’s ring is in Rose Gold and has a leaping Stag. Both rings also incorporate a spiral design flowing around the circumference of the rings.
The couple kindly emailed the following; “We’re really pleased with our rings. Rab and Tanya’s gentle coaxing helped us clarify a fairly broad design brief. The end result is everything we hoped for, two unique but thematically linked rings reflecting the union of their recipients. Thank you.” Continue reading
Kelly and Bruce were married at the Summer Solstice and kindly emailed the following about the unique gold wedding bands which we created for them;
“Bruce and I would like to thank you once again for your wonderful practical workmanship and visionary skills; for transforming our sketched design into the beautiful rings you created for us. We knew the moment we saw your gorgeous creations on your blog and website that you would be able to create something unusual and alternative to the conventional wedding band, and what we would like. We really appreciate the effort you put into making our weddings band personal and unique to us. We were also very impressed with the consistent professional communication throughout the whole process of interaction, and your eagerness to ensure everything was just how we liked.” Continue reading
