South Australian couples make their own wedding rings with Adelaide jeweller EverettBrookes
THERE are few things more romantic than a marriage proposal but actually handicrafting the engagement ring is one way an Adelaide jeweller is making the occasion even more personal.
EverettBrookes founders Ian Brookes and David Everett have been working with clients intensively for the past six months to allow them to hand craft their own engagement bands under supervision using the traditional jewellers’ tools of the trade.
“We invite the guys to be involved and tell their own story about making their engagement ring,” Mr Brookes said.
“The customer will do the rough rolling and shaping of the metals and we get them involved in hammering, bending, filing and sawing. They’re doing every part of it except for the very last finessing.
“The whole process is photographed, giving the couple something that can be cherished for years.”
