Now, Mark and his wife Jacqueline work together to create sustainable, eco-friendly rings with unique designs and details whilst supporting ethical charities such as trees for life.

Japanese and Scottish River Gold Engagement Ring

To say pure Scottish gold engagement rings and wedding rings are rare is an understatement. Because of the time taken to find the appropriate amount of alluvial gold, the challenges of working in pure river gold and the rarity of this precious resource they are one of a kind pieces only created by Jacqueline & Edward every now and again. But this story only gets more interesting…..

This feature page is dedicated to an incredibly special pure river gold engagement ring commission which includes pure Scottish and Japanese river gold. What is just as exciting is that the husband to be came out looking for gold with us in the Scottish Wilderness and added a sprinkle of his own magic into the ring.  Creating this handmade engagement ring was an honour and we’ve documented its creation in the full article if you choose to read more.  Or, contact us to discuss your own bespoke commission. We can work in pure Welsh gold, pure Scottish gold, or pure river gold from many other places across Europe and the rest of the world.

Customer Weddings

Elaine and Scott found Jacqueline & Edward as the high street seemed so impersonal. They really couldn’t find any wedding rings that they liked. We were the perfect match to the couple’s ethical approach to their big day.

We went panning for gold together close to Leadhills in Scotland and the gold they panned was incorporated into the wedding rings along with a ring that was passed down from Scott’s papa.

As Elaine had a unique, heirloom engagement ring, we sent a casting kit to ensure the bespoke wedding ring would sit seamlessly alongside.

I found Jaqueline and Edward through an internet search as I wanted my ring to use recycled materials and be locally made. I also wanted to find a ring which would fit against my engagement ring. I’d tried some samples from other companies and none fit flush with my ring. Mark was really helpful, and

I’m going to echo some of the other reviews in that I was nervous about making such a large purchase to an online business, but those feelings were completely allayed when I was able to contact Mark about the granite inlay white gold ring.

Our Wedding and Engagement Rings Will Always be Made Responsibly

Natural gold is alloyed with ethically sourced recycled gold in our range of handcrafted eco-friendly wedding rings. Our insistence on using recycled metal and sustainably panned gold dissociates our work from the often-harmful humanitarian and ecological effects of mining. This will always be the case.
