Wedding jewellery

Crafted with passion

Katy Luxton Jewellery

Working from a sedum-roofed studio in Wadebridge, Katy creates contemporary, playful and sculptural jewellery drawing inspiration from mathematical models, geometric shapes and interwoven curves. Katy works in silver, gold, palladium, platinum and nylon using a mixture of traditional skills and new technology. She enjoys working with customers to design individual pieces that reflect them. It’s a wonderfully personal experience that results in a unique piece of jewellery that you’ll always treasure and that promises to help make your big day that extra bit special.

Setting in stone

Canary Blue

Canary Blue has a professional jewellery workshop on site, where you and your partner can take the opportunity to create your very own wedding rings. All of their jewellery is tailored just for you, from choosing the perfect loose diamond for your engagement ring to a completely bespoke CAD or handmade design; every ring they make is as unique as the person wearing it. They can also repair or remodel any special pieces you may already have, keeping your collection beautiful for years to come.

Invoking the coast

Hannah Louise Lamb

What better way to commemorate your Cornish wedding than with personalised rings documenting your favourite stretch of coastline? Coastline Rings are the ingenious creation of jewellery designer Hannah Louise Lamb. “I was born in Cornwall, and grew up playing on the beach,” Hannah tells us. “The Cornish coast is very inspiring to me.” These romantic, two-part, interlocking rings – available in silver, white, yellow, rose gold, or a combination of different colour golds, palladium and platinum – represent the land and the sea, joined together by a coastline map, perhaps your wedding destination, engagement location or honeymoon place.

Contemporary yet rustic
