Ash & Laurel's Sailing Trip

Ash, Laurel and their kiddos have recently confirmed some exciting plans to fulfil one of their lifelong dreams. They're taking some time away from the workshop to embark on a family sailing trip. 

What this means for your order:

While Ash is away from the workshop there will be a few changes to the pieces that we'll have available for immediate purchase, all etched designs will be on pre-order. This means these pieces will be made and shipped after Ash's return to the workshop in October. Below are the important dates you need to know:

  • The cut-off date to place your order for an etched ring and have it made before Ash goes on leave is MARCH 21ST 2022.

  • Orders placed after this date will begin to ship after Ash's return to the workshop, our first shipping date will be OCTOBER 31st 2022.

We will have a limited number of selected etched designs pre-made in stock, available on enquiry. However, please note these will be available in limited sizes/widths.


If you need to send your ring back for resizing and it has an etched design or stones it may need to be resized by Ash, just get in touch and we'll see what we can do.

To have your ring resized before Ash goes on leave we'll need to receive it in the workshop by MARCH 25TH. Resizes that arrive after this date that require Ash to resize will begin to ship from OCTOBER 31st 2022.

Custom Design Service:

During this time our custom design service will be closed until Ash's return to the workshop. Our custom design service will close on MARCH 7TH and reopen on OCTOBER 10TH 2022. While our custom design service is closed you can still fill out our custom design form, Tamsin will be here to answer any questions and can quote you a price. 


Pieces still available to order as usual:

While Ash is away we will still have some of our standard designs available as usual. Siggy and Shannon will be making and shipping the following designs within our usual turn-around time of 3-6 weeks + shipping:⁠


Engagement Rings:

Love waits for no man on a sailing adventure! We're currently working on a plan to be able to offer our engagement rings while Ash is away so you can pop the big question when the perfect moment strikes. Check back here for new updates. 


Ash is our engagement ring making master, he creates each ring by hand. Needless to say, being able to offer these special rings without Ash here is incredibly tricky so we've been brainstorming all sorts of ideas to come up with a solution for while Ash is away. We've come up with an option that we think is pretty cool and is also perfect for those who are a little nervous about selecting the perfect ring. 

We're now offering the option for you to select a beautiful diamond or sapphire to propose with and then, together with your fiancé, you can choose the perfect ring style to have the stone made into when Ash returns to the workshop in October. We have these special gemstone proposal boxes which are handmade from sustainably harvested wood here in New Zealand. Inside is a special silver gem case to hold your chosen stone, keeping it safe and secure while still showing off its beauty.⁠
