Hidden by Nature, Found by Us, Designed for you

At Jacqueline & Edward, we work with recycled metals and alluvial river gold from across the UK to create beautifully artisan engagement rings, ethical wedding rings and ethical jewellery ready to be worn with pride and cherished forever. We’re a family business based in Yorkshire, our journey began over 30 years ago, when our co-founder Mark ventured into the world of gold panning with his late father, Edward. 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.

How to Choose Your Wedding Ring

Choosing your wedding ring can be a daunting task.  At Jacqueline & Edward we have a large and ever-growing range of ethical handmade wedding rings which as one customer succinctly surmised, can cause “analysis paralysis”.  

Choice allows you to feel individual and connect with a design you like.  It also inspires some people to develop ideas for new bespoke ring designs which they would not otherwise have thought of and perhaps want to have created by us.  However, whilst variety is the spice of life, we also totally understand the challenges it brings and the need to manage the decision-making process.

Elaine & Scott

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.

We were a bit nervous about spending so much money on wedding rings that we had only viewed online but we shouldn’t have worried. We bought the matching Barrs rings and they are just as beautiful as they seem in the photos on the website. We love the texture and colour of the white gold

I absolutely love the Hayakawa ring that Jacqueline & Edward have made for me here. It’s stunning.

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.
