Jacqueline & Edward’s range of wedding rings are perfect for people who prefer ethically produced beautiful jewellery.
All our pieces contain natural alluvial river gold from an area of your choosing, gifted from our family collection. We believe in connecting our ring to the wilds of the UK and beyond through both provenance and adventure. Gold panning can be done in a manner which is sustainable and not at all detrimental to the environment by respecting nature and the land owners alike. We currently hold a stunning collection of alluvial gold spanning across Southern and Northern England, Central and Northern Wales, Southern, Central and Northern Scotland, Southern and Northern Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Canada, Japan and New Zealand.
Our palladium rich white gold alloy never needs replating and is enriched with platinum group elements.
All our pieces are created individually and are fully handmade. We take pride in creating all our pieces from molten gold in our home workshop. They roll around in the bottom of our crucibles before being poured, rolled, shaped and polished into their final form. Our pieces are truly handmade in every sense of the word. All our rings are handmade in our Yorkshire workshop and are presented in a hand carved wooden gift box with a certificate of provenance.

When Mark is not roaming the wilds prospecting for gold or silver, he is designing and creating wedding rings in the workshop. Combining his love for the little known world of gold panning with his passion for art and goldsmithing, the idea of Jacqueline & Edward was born. He’s extraordinarily passionate about Jacqueline & Edward and most of all he loves gold, some have said it’s bordering on an obsession…. Mark has stood in the final of the men’s professional class in the world gold panning championships, been part of the British team and won both the British and Scottish gold panning titles. Mark strongly believes in the sustainable acquisition of precious metals and is a trained Geologist and Goldsmith, Chartered Environmentalist, Chartered Scientist and is also chartered with the Institute of Water and Environmental Management. All the gold he uses to make a Jacqueline & Edward piece is both sustainable and eco-friendly, he would have it no other way.
Jacqueline is Mark’s wife. She went gold panning 10 years ago to pan some gold for their wedding rings. It was snowing sideways but she didn’t quit until there was gold at the bottom of her pan. From here she emerged as the driving force, the determination and the compassion behind Jacqueline & Edward. She has a keen eye for design and also manages finance, social media, and most importantly… brushes Ronnie ready for his next adventure.
Ronnie is Mark’s dog. He is the watcher and the fetcher, the path beater and the food gobbler. His days on the river are spent endlessly….and we mean endlessly chasing rocks and watching over the entire expedition with an intensity akin to a deranged and obsessive works foreman. His evenings are spent pulling sticks and leaves out of his undercoat, covering the tent and car in dog hair and getting the duvet and pillows soaking wet ready for bed. When he is not in the mountains, he is responsible for covering the floor of the workshop with his happy go lucky carcass, whilst sleeping in preparation for his next adventure. He is our mascot and we are his pack.
