Wedding Band, Partner, and Engagement ring Workshops


Wedding band workshop

Make your wedding even more special by making each other’s rings. Goldsmiths Daniel Valencia and Laura Perez have worked with hundreds of couples, helping them realize their dream of creating their custom wedding bands and partner rings themselves, resulting in durable works of art full of meaning and beauty for them, by them.

Starting with a free consultation couples can view multiple samples of wedding rings fabricated in Sterling and Gold, pore over the different textures and carved designs in order to more fully understand the options possible for their rings. Sterling Silver is provided as part of the workshop fee. If you prefer Gold, Platinum, or Palladium this can be purchased, at cost, during your consultation if you choose to move forward with your workshop. Because your precious metals are bought at cost couples generally save an appreciable amount of money than buying mass produced rings elsewhere. After finalizing their design and material choices your personal workshop can be scheduled at a time convenient for you.

The workshop is in our beautiful studio on Capitol Hill, DC. Laura documents your workshop with great photos and videos of each of you making the others rings.

All wedding band and partner rings can be engraved, at no additional cost by Laura. With the addition of a 3 axis CNC engraving machine, and a 50 watt laser engraver, your custom engraving can be placed inside your ring. All engraving artwork should be submitted one week prior to your workshop date. Rings must be a minimum of 2 mm in width.

If your designs incorporate diamonds or other precious gems this can be accommodated readily, there would be additional costs for the purchase of the stones, again, at cost, and a fee for the professional setting of your diamonds.

Participants make their rings seated at professionally equipped Goldsmithing benches in our beautiful studio spaces. You will learn how to form, forge, solder, texture, and polish your rings like a pro and you will wear them with pride for your lifetime. Workshop fee starts at 895.00 for gold and silver bands, Platinum and Palladium workshops start at 995.00

Engagement ring workshop

Engagement ring workshops are a specialty as well, working with our favorite diamond broker in NYC for your GIA certified diamond, or our favorite colored stone dealers, a lovely gem can be purchased at wholesale cost. Your one-of-a-kind ring will be made working together with Daniel Valencia, a professional goldsmith. This generally requires 5-6 private sessions working one on one with Dan. Working together, helping men make the ring they’ll propose with, is the best experience I can enjoy as a teacher. Whether you want a classic 4 prong ring or have a unique design, you will make it with me at a professionally equipped bench after working out the design. I have helped many dozens of prospective grooms to make their own engagement rings successfully. Designed for absolute beginners this is a wonderful way to make your proposal that much more special. All metals and stones are purchased at cost, a considerable savings. Engagement ring workshop fee starts at just 3200.00. Testimonials and reviews can be seen at Yelp, Facebook, and Google.
