April and Oliver had their wedding in the UK, and we are convinced it was the one wedding to rule them all. While in New Zealand enjoying their honeymoon, April and Oliver had a fun filled day at Hobbiton enjoying what is on offer and made a very special visit to the Jens Hansen workshop here in Nelson.
Daniel and Jenny became engaged at the very top of the red crater here near Mt Rongariro, New Zealand. Being engaged here in New Zealand had a part to play in keeping the rings of a more sentimental value to them, so having them made by the Jens Hansen workshop, who made the one ring to rule them all, for The Lord of the Rings seemed a perfect fit.
It is traditional for brides to receive two rings, the first is an engagement ring which symbolises a promise of marriage. A wedding ring or commonly referred to as a wedding band is then given during the wedding ceremony, and this band is traditionally known to solidify and strengthen that promise.
The size of your hands and fingers will change over your life time and the life of your wedding rings. Tungsten and titanium rings are almost impossible respectively to work with after they have been machined in the factory. The chance of finding anyone near you who can work with them is negligible.
We worked with the couple to handcraft an engagement/wedding ring using a classic Jens Hansen design and Rebecca’s very special heirloom stones. The quality diamonds we set into her beautiful ring were from four individual family rings including her mother’s engagement ring and a ring once owned by Rebecca’s grandmother.
