Ringing the Change

Taking a design-led approach and transforming the classic wedding band into sensual silhouettes, The Jewellery Workshop’s bespoke service makes saying ‘I do’ just that little bit more special.

You’ll find The Jewellery Workshop on Porthleven’s harbourside. Owned by Clair and Paul Pennington for over 12 years, they have become renowned across Cornwall as creators and curators of exquisite pieces. Specialising in bespoke wedding jewellery, each piece is carefully crafted, creating heirlooms to be cherished for a lifetime. If you’re searching for a unique wedding band, then you need look no further. Bespoke wedding rings can be designed to the customer’s exact requirement and if they have their own gold, perhaps from an inherited piece that has become outdated in style, this can be melted down and given new life.

While classic solitaires and traditional bands can be catered for, where other wedding band designs are far from traditional and can encompass a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be designed to slot seamlessly alongside your existing engagement ring and if you have a favourite beach, Clair and Paul can even use the sand to cast the metal, giving the ring a unique texture. The designs are effortless, yet elegant, giving the air of understated luxury; they are visually captivating while remaining suitable for daily wear. “We can also design stone-set wedding rings and bespoke engagement rings,” says Paul, “as everything is made in our harbourside workshop. Men’s engagement and wedding bands have also become increasingly popular as modern grooms look to mark the occasion in style, whether that be a heavy textured rings or a more fuss-free silhouette.”

As a family run business established in 2012, the team at The Jewellery Workshop is very proud of its exquisite workmanship and service; their Facebook and Google reviews are certainly something to be very proud of. “We pride ourselves in giving great customer satisfaction,” adds Clair, “With three makers working on commissions, alterations and repairs, we have a broad scope in terms of design and so are also able to offer bridal jewellery that can even be colour-coordinated jewellery with bridesmaid dresses or the wedding theme.” If you’re looking for something unique for the big day, then The Jewellery Workshop is a must-visit.
