Depends on the person working on the ring and how much detail there is to it. Each person’s experience is different. I’d expect at least 1- 2 months maybe.

to actually make a ring like a day. My uncle is a jeweller and when we were talking about the wedding bands i was worried he wouldn’t have enough time to make them (it was 3months before the wedding) and he was like, to actually make the ring would be 1day. So i guess it just depends on the time and how busy they are.

well our rings came from NZ where i’m orginally from and where most of my family still are. My Nana came over the thursday before our wedding and had the rings with her. I had already seen the pictures of it made and ready and was sooooo excited when my nana arrived lol.

I’ll see if i have a picture of my rings

I had all of my rings custom made. They each took a different amount of time as two of them were from scratch so those needed cast modling. After they created the cast molding they then created a wax version of the ring and then from their we were able to make changes and tweak what we wanted. Two of my rings took about 6-9 weeks and then my wedding bands are simple rose gold bands that took about 4 days each Laughing  I think it depends what you’re getting. If the ring always has a mold then it wouldn’t take as long. If the ring is custom and you’re starting from scratch then it might take longer….

I think it depends on how custom the ring is (do they have a mold they can use? or are they starting from scratch?). Mine is entirely custom and it took about 6 weeks to be completely finished.

Mine is a little different.  My FH made my ring out of stainless steel and we later found out that we cannot add a stone.  We had to custom design a totally new kind of , sort of wrap-lay over thing.  We just got the ceramic mock up back, and that took two months.  We were told that it would possibly take 2-4 more months to get it finished.
